Innolux Display, a Taiwan-based manufacturer of LCDs, is planning to mass produce 22″ wide LCD monitor panels later this month. Innolux is currently developing a 26″ wide LCD monitor panel and plans to mass produce it in early 2007.
Remember one of the first 22″ LCD monitors? I believe it was Apple that came out with a 22″, but the resolution was much less than what we have now at 1680 x 1050. I’m not sure why the resurgence of 22″, but it must have something to do with how G6 and G7 LCD fabs are optimized. I personally do not like the 22″ size and resolution as it does not give me any additional pixel real estate than a 20″ but costs more. Same deal with 26″: I’d stick with yesterday’s 23″ at the same resolution of 1920 x 1200.
