Samsung today announced the world's first a-Si (Amorphous Silicon) 2.6-inch TFT-LCD with VGA (640 x 480 at 300ppi) image quality. This is a significant step for mobile display where QVGA (240 x 320) is still cutting edge. Besides the resolution the screen sports a 200:1 contrast ratio and 150cd/m(2) brightness, which the company says provides sharp images even when exposed to bright sunshine. Samsung will eventually expand the a-Si technology to "smart phones" and mobile phones equipped for digital multimedia broadcasting.
