Dell Leaks 27" Display on Website

Dell's upcoming 27" display as leaked on the Dell.com website
An inconspicuous typo reveals one of the most anticipated Dell displays to date
Earlier this year Dell was
expected to release a 27" enthusiast display
even though no manufacturer had announced plans to build on 27" LCD substrates. However, with
Samsung's announcement earlier this month
, it looks as though Dell's 27" plans are finally a go.
Yet late last week, the product page for the
was updated with a "new" image of the product. Much to the confusion of enthusiasts everywhere, this was not the image for the 20" Dell display announced last year, but the image of a 27" display that has not been announced yet.
In a conversation to
, a Dell representative explained that the image came from a training manual for the upcoming W2707C display. This was later
confirmed by a forum post from a Dell employee
on the same day. As far as Dell displays go, the "C" suffix denotes a consumer LCD TV. Dell's
, for example, is a 26" LCD TV.
Typically Dell announces its new displays and roadmaps at the Consumer Electronics Show: the 3007WFP, 2407WFP and 2007WFP were all highlights of CES 2006. CES 2007 is scheduled to take place the second week of January.
Interestingly, Dell's other LCD TV models do not have USB inputs, even though those inputs are clearly visible in the leaked image. The Samsung
claim a 1920x1200 resolution, which is a resolution typically reserved for desktop displays rather than LCD TVs. Furthermore, this display lacks a coaxial input -- something most other Dell LCD TVs have. Given just the specifications and ignoring Dell's comments, we would be apt to say this is a desktop display rather than a consumer LCD TV.
Whether or not the Dell representatives have misspoke seems moot: we will have a 27" high end display for 2007, and it will most certainly be introduced at CES next week.

You don't need HDMI if you can do DVI-HDCP

Whoa, DVI-HDCP is a new one to my ears.
Doing some research on it, thanks for pointing it out. But not we have four or five competing standards for a computer moniter if my tracking is correct:
DVI-HDCP (not sure yet if this belongs above)
But thanks for informing me of yet another technical detail in the wonderful world of connections.

Well, jsut to add what you have:
DVI is sort of the grandfather standard. DVI-HDCP, HDMI and UDI are all derivatives of DVI, and backwards compatible. You can use adaptors to interface between all of these standards, although you'll lose some functionality.
DisplayPort was originally to be intended to be compatible with DVI, but I think it no longer is.
And well, component is analog. I would not really lump it together with the rest.
