    LG Display debuts five-inch Retina Display killer with 1080p HD resolution and 440ppi pixel density

    Smartphone displays are becoming larger in size, and along with that, we're seeing a nice trend that's bringing greater pixel density. While LG Display's newly-announced 1080p HD mobile display isn't the most pixel dense that we've seen -- a distinction that belongs to Toshiba -- the five-inch panel is more appropriate for consumer applications and boasts an impressive pixel density of 440ppi. Its 16:9 aspect ratio was designed with HD content in mind, and the LCD technology isn't anything to sneeze at, either: it's a variant of IPS known as Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS), which is said to boast wide viewing angles, fast response times and improved brightness efficiency. Best yet, it seems that consumers won't have long to wait before the panel works its way into consumer technology -- the five-inch HD display is set for availability during the second-half of this year. To learn more of the Retina Display-shattering deets, you'll find the full PR after the break.

    I have a question. Why do we need such HIGH resolutions on tiny screens? Please explain this to me!

    ^ doesn't matter what the OS is, right? If the screen is 5", then how does it matter? I think existing resolutions are good enough at that size.

    You and me can say that coz we are on WP 7 but the rest of the world needs those uber high resolutions to look half as good as us ;)
    so just imagine what we would like in full HD ;)
