Japan Display Inc. 2.3-inch 1280×800 LCD

Japan Display Inc.: This is older news, but JDI’s 1280×800 2.3-inch LCD sports an unheard of resolution of 651 ppi and a microscopic pixel pitch of just 39μm. JDI states 16.7 million colors are supported, but I am uncertain if that’s true 8 bit or 6 bit +FRC. There is a closeup comparison of the 651-ppi to a 326-ppi (that should sound familiar as it is the same as what’s found in the iPhone 4/4S retina display) and it is quite clear we need higher ppi.
