It is interesting to note that there is no problem to get 1920x1080
resolution with LCD. The problem was pixel size. However, this problem
is solved and bigger size LCD's are coming out.
It is thus market postioning and price which drives the products:
1280x768 is enough as HDTV so go with it. The 1920x1080 is then
reserved for monster displays coming later.
Smaller size 1920x1200 is fine as computer monitor, the main problem
is do people want it? That is comparing to the current 24" LCD would
they like to go to 30"? Fact is that people prefer larger size
LCD e.g. instead of 1280x1024 17" they like to go to 19".
But 30" LCD on the desk is getting huge, one needs to turn head
from one end to the other. Also the changing distance between the
center and the border region may be a problem.
So it can be so that monster displays will appear on some desks
when there will come technology for making displays CURVED, e.g. OLED on plastic.
Anyway, next year will be the year of testing monster high resolution
displays as PC desktop monitors
