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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
