Hitachi has started mass production of 800 x 480 2.9-inch LCD panels for use in mobile phones, which the company claims is "the industry's first 800 x 480 product as a mobile phone display panel."
The users can view the entire image without side scrolling when browsing websites designed to match the size of a personal computer monitor or watching VGA (480 x 640) video. The panel employs the company's proprietary liquid crystal technology called IPS that boasts wide viewing angle and high image quality.
The pixel count is five times that of QVGA (240 x 320), which has been the norm for mobile phone panels.The new product is a transmissive LCD panel that boasts a viewing angle of over 170 degrees in both vertical and horizontal directions. source:techon
