Samsung will provide the panels and will launch its own displays alongside

Samsung Electronics said that it has signed a long-term contract to provide Dell with 27-inch LCD panels, according to DigiTimes’ reading of a Korean publication. Both companies will launch 27-inch panels in 2007, and the panels can also be used as televisions.

 

Samsung’s projected specifications for its upcoming 27-inch panel features a 1920 x 1200 resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 500 cd/m2 and a response time of 8 ms grey-to-grey. See the full specs here.

 

Dell last month introduced a 20.1-inch widescreen LCD for $289. Samsung has also been making strides in other display technologies, as it recently revealed the world’s thinnest mobile LCD screen and just before that a 12mm thick AMOLED display.

At least as far DPI, this vs. a 23" or 24" panel would be similar to the difference between the more common 19" and 17" 5:4 LCDs that have 1280x1024 resolutions, and both of those seem to have their place in the market.

The 17" notebook LCDs that come in 1920x1200, I personally find to be borderline-unusable (in the neighborhood of 130 DPI), and I know a lot of adults who struggle with even 100 DPI using standard-size fonts.

As long as this means the price on 24" panels will come down, I see it as good news.
