Japan Display has been busy unveiling high-resolution screens recently. Now the company’s got something a little different: a crazy-bright screen.
The company’s new 7 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel tablet screen supports peak brightness of 1000 nits for outdoor visibility,
although it’ll probably run down your battery pretty quickly at that level.
Indoors it can shine at up to 500 nits while using about 40 percent less power than a typical LCD (according to Japan Display).
Here’s a roundup of tech news from around the web.
