Nokia old-school diddy phone

Let’s re-invent small phones! Small screens! And rubber buttons!

Something for the Weekend, Sir? “You know what they say about people with small hands?” Yes I do: according to the Museum of Carry On Jokes, they are favoured by women with small breasts. Or men with a tiny schmeckel. It must be frustrating to be excluded from high society for having smaller-than-average hands. For example, did you notice the glaring paucity …

14.7, that's a lot of pixels

Size matters – how else could Dell squeeze 15 million pixels into this 27" 5K monitor?

When it comes to pixel size, monitor designers boast about who has the smallest. The new Dell UltraSharp 27-inch display has the smallest of the lot. The ultra HD 5K monitor is the world’s first screen with a 5120 x 2880 pixel resolution. That’s 218 pixels per inch. That may sound a way off the LG G3 phone which offers 534 PPI …

Screen glare

Shiny, shiny! The window's behind me...

Something for the Weekend, Sir? For reasons too mundane to express, the location at which I have been currently working comprises two adjacent but separate open-plan areas conjoined by a small office occupied by the departmental boss. The easiest and quickest way to get from one open-plan area to the other is to pass through the little office. In fact, it’s …

Sharp to show OLED 'retina' display for laptops

Fancy a 3840 x 2160 display in your next 13in laptop? Form an orderly queue outside Sharp's offices then, and loudly demand it turns its latest prototype panel into shipping product.

Apple to take shine off glossy iMacs, say moles

Your iMac's screen to shiny for you? The next version of the Apple desktop will have a reflection resistant coating applied to its ('retina'?) display, it has been claimed.

iPhone 5 gets a 5in screen

The iPhone 5 will sport a five-inch - 4.6in to be precise - screen. Well, that's if you believe the claims of an unnamed industry source - almost certainly a bod from either Samsing or LG - quoted by a South Korean newspaper, Maeil Business. Big screens are in, apparently. When questioned, punters say they favour screen sizes …

Toshiba 14in USB LCD Mobile Monitor

Toshiba 14in USB LCD Mobile Monitor

Review It sounds like a great idea: a 14in LCD monitor that connects using USB. Perfect for tablets, netbooks and mobile phones, right? Well no, because it doesn’t work with them. That’s not to say Toshiba’s Monitor is entirely without merit. It’s a neat looking device, similar in size to a slim laptop and weighing the same as a …

Tablet LCDs: seven-inchers outsell 9.7in panels

Shipments of 7in LCD screens surpassed those of 9.7in panels in November, it has been claimed. You can read that one of two ways. Either the combined sales of Amazon's Kindle Fire, Barnes & Noble's Nook, RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook - not a big contribution there, natch - et al, are exceeding those of Apple's iPad - pretty much …

Yes, it'll be many a year before we're all running around the globe, unfolding our transparent OLED mobile internet devices - which will seemingly operate without batteries and circuitry - and gaining useful local knowledge through a mix of mobile broadband, augmented reality and 3D. But, hey, who's to say Samsung, which …

3m iPad 3 'retina' screens sent to Apple by month's end

Apple's next iPad will indeed feature a 2048 x 1536 "retina" display - if an Asian whisperer is right to say LG, Samsung and Sharp have already shipped more than one million such screens to the fruit-flavoured firm.
