Samsung squeezes VGA into 1.98in LCD


See that little screen up there? Nice, innit? It's noteworthy as it's the world's first 2in LCD (OK, 1.98in) to support VGA resolution.

The new 480 x 640-pixel screen is intended for cellphones and the like at high resolution and has a contrast ratio of 300:1.And that's not all: apparently, a typical 40in hi-def LCD TV has a mere 40 pixels per square inch, whereas Samsung's baby boasts 400 ppi.

Wonder how this will compare with the Sharp VGA phone we saw a while back?
