Japan Display unveils 10 inch, 3840 x 2160 pixel tablet dispay

Tired of tablets with plain old 1080p or lower resolution displays? There are a handful of options with higher pixel counts, including the Apple iPad‘s 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel screen and the Google Nexus 10‘s 10.1 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel display.

But soon we could see 10 inch tablets with 3840 x 2160 pixel screens, courtesy of Japan Display.

The company’s new display packs 438 pixels per inch, allowing you to have just as many pixels on a handheld tablet as you’d get on a 4K Ultra HD television.

Japan Display says its screens use low-temperature poly silicon (LTPS) technology to keep power consumption low while offering high pixel density. The screen uses about 2180mW of power, most of which comes from the backlight.

The screen is an IPS display with viewing angles of at least 160 degrees, and it has a contrast ratio of 1100:1.

    Now just keep those pixels and make it a little bigger. I want a display about the size of US Letter paper with enough pixels to display a printed page with at least the quality of the original Apple LaserWriter that launched the desktop publishing revolution ages ago. Still waiting for a eReader that can at least match the specs of decades old, obsolete paper tech. New is supposed to be better, right?

    About given up on the ‘revolutionary’ display tech of the month we used to see in the tech press on a regular basis. Epaper doesn’t look like it is going to do the trick either so lets just stuff a big ‘ol battery behind an LCD and go with it.

    And to think that I still occasionally use my VGA (480P) X1 projector on a 92″ screen- and it looks surprisingly good from 10 feet at this mere DVD quality. I guess I need to upgrade from my 16 PPI to a more modern 441 PPI. If only I had better vision.

    That’s 2180mW for power, not 218mW – would have been too nice …
