AMOLED screen to increase their presence

Samsung Amoled

AMOLED screens should become more prevalent in smartphones in the coming years. At least that show forecasts analyst firm IHS iSupply, which could be valid up to 2017. The delivery of AMOLED screens for mobile devices should double over the current state.

Two years ago, when Samsung released the Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet that contained the Super AMOLED Plus screen, according to some surveys it has earned the title of "the best tablet on the market" from the customers. Although tests of users can’t be fully relevant, these data certainly helped Samsung in the decision that it was time for a full HD AMOLED tablet with a larger diagonal.

Galaxy note hits 10 million units sold


Samsung's experiment, as they called it before launch because of its huge 5.3 inch display, has celebrated 10 million units sold. Samsung managed to sell 5 million in March and since then sales have been going pretty solid for the Note. One of the biggest concerns about the device was how users will accept its size, since most of smartphones are 4.3-inches and smaller. Although we recently had 4.7 (HTC Titan and Sensation XL), and new Galaxy Nexus is 4.65, 5.3-inches is still quite big and we can consider it a mini tablet instead of solely smartphone.

Flexible Display now has Flexible Controls

Nokia_flexible_UI_20111026_003_610x488We have been following the flexible displays since they first made their debut on the next about a year ago. The idea of having an LED display that can bend and flex is simply a great one. I personally have lost a couple of laptops that did not have this feature and we are sure that anyone that owns a tablet right now is thinking about how much this technology will come in handy.  The funny thing is that while many people thought that Apple would be the ones to work in this first it is actually being spearheaded by Nokia.

This week at the Nokia World Show the press and luck attendees got to see more than a Windows Phone as Nokia engineers showed off a new device that not only had a flexible display, but could also be controlled by bending and twisting it. These kinetic controls were able to zoom in and out, pause music scroll and more.  This was in addition to the normal multi-touch input that the screen was capable of.

So far all of the information we have is that this was very impressive and while no one has let slip how this is accomplished we are hearing that it has to do with Carbon Nanotubes. These Nanotubes change resistance when bent and if they are suspended in the right medium along with a AMOLED display you have something rather special. We can see applications beyond the typical phone or tablet such as in a doctor’s office where bending the image around gives you the ability to look at an MRI result or X-Ray from all angles. If Nokia is serious about this we have one suggestion for them…. Get to the patent office right now and put in your paper work before Apple does.
