Samsung release VGA 5cm screen

Samsung has announced the release of the industry's first 5cm LCD panel to achieve 640 x 480 pixels.

This means that camera and mobile phone-size screens will be able to display images at 12 pixels per millimetre, three times that of most LCD displays, and ten times that of many plasma screens.

I'm looking forward to the time when all digital displays are available with this (and greater) resolutions. The primary benefits will be that text can be displayed at qualites that approach those of the printed page, making type more pleasant to look at and easier to read.
