Samsung teases new TV and more ahead of CES
Samsung has been showing off some of the new products that will be on display at CES 2013 early next month. The new products include new Smart TVs and a new version of the ChatOn app. ChatOn is a cross-platform messaging application that has been turned into a social media network with version 2.0.
ChatOn 2.0 is available in over 200 countries and 60 different languages. Samsung describes the service as a micro social networking platform allowing users to create profiles and post status updates that friends can comment on. The new version of the application is easier-to-use with improved ability to leave comments and add content such as photos or video.
Photos or video can be placed in "the trunk" on ChatOn before being shared on other social networks such as Facebook. The app also has a multi-screen feature allowing chatting with up to five connected devices on a single account. Users can invite friends to conversations using the app from different platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
Another new product Samsung is showing off is the Smart Hub updated home screen. The new Smart Hub allows users to watch live programming and movies while using apps and looking at personal photos. Samsung is also promising that the Smart Hub will offer a “more intuitive experience with various contents, live TV broadcasts, VOD, apps, Internet and such.”
Samsung is also expected to show off a
flexible smartphone screen
at CES 2013.

It depends on distance from the screen but there is a point of deminishing returns with pixel density.
The S3 has 306 PPI, the iPhone 5 is 326, and the new HTC DNA is 441 PPI (and 1080p) but the reviews mostly say the extra resolution comes with the price of crappy battery life and lower gaming framerates.
Not that anything over the touted 320 "retina" standard for phones is useless but the 440 PPI on the DNA is probably too much too soon. Props to them for pushing 1080p on a 5" screen though.
We may not be at a point where more screen resolution is pointless but it certainly isn't far away. Since the screen is the biggest drain on the battery maybe after the PPI war is over battery life will start to improve.
