CES - Samsung, LG to show new LCD panels at CES

Samsung will unveil a double-sided LCD panel for cell phones at the CES show in Las Vegas this week.

At this week's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Samsung Electronics Co. will unveil a double-sided LCD (liquid crystal display) panel that can show different images on each side.

The 2.22-inch display is the first that can show different images on either side of the display, Samsung said. The company, which is one of the world's largest manufacturers of LCD panels, said other double-sided displays can only show a reverse image of the same video data on the other side.

The panel is designed for use in clamshell cell phones where the main display faces inwards and typically a sub-display faces outwards. The entire display is 3.85 millimeters thick which is a millimeter thinner than modules used in current phones so it could help manufacturers produce slimmer cell phones.

Samsung will also use CES to unveil a 70-inch, full high definition LCD for use in televisions.

Rival manufacturer LG.Philips LCD Co. will use the massive consumer electronics expo to highlight two power-saving LCD panels for use in televisions, it said.

One is a 42-inch panel that uses 30 percent less power than a conventional model. The second is a 26-inch panel that uses 35 percent less power but manages to produce a brighter picture thanks to the use of an additional white subpixel.

The company will also demonstrate a number of prototypes including a 15-inch monitor panel that has a controllable viewing angle, a 32-inch high-definition TV panel with power consumption of just 65 watts, and a 42-inch high-definition TV panel with a better motion picture response time.

CES runs from Monday until Thursday.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
