Samsung announce 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 resolution display, paving the way for a Retina Display iPad 3?

Samsung has just announced that it will be demonstrating a new display panel for touch screen devices at the SID Display Week 2011 next week in Los Angeles. The display will have a huge resolution of 2560 x 1600 @ 300dpi and will be a 10.1-inch panel.

What is interesting to us is that the display may pave the way for the highly demanded Retina Display in the next version of the iPad. One of the reasons it failed to materialize in the iPad 2 was put down to power consumption. The new Samsung display uses a technology known as PenTile which is said to draw 40% less power consumption. PenTile has been developed by Samsung's partner Nouvoyance.

App for That: How do you set up a reminder to make a phone call?

App for That: How do you set up a reminder to make a phone call?

There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, Andrew asks:

I know there has to be an app that lets me set a reminder to call someone, then pops up an alert with a phone number so I can tap to dial it at the right time, but I just can't find it. HALP!

You can always use the notes field of the built in Calendar app, but this requires you to first open the contact's information, copy the phone number, then paste it into the notes of a new Calendar event, and that's just way too cumbersome for our taste. There are also many to-do apps that include this functionality, but in this case, less is more. For a better solution, follow along after the break!

Evily

Evily

Nilay Petal of This is My Next (and formerly of Engadget) has written up a terrific breakdown of the ongoing Google/Skyhook lawsuit, which alleges Google interfered with Skyhook's location tracking business by unfairly using their control over Android licensing.

At the very least, it’s now extremely clear that Google plays a major role in Android device development, to the point where Andy Rubin himself approves and denies requests from OEMs. It’s also clear that Google places tremendous value on collecting location data, and it acted swiftly when it determined Skyhook’s deal with Motorola might threaten its ability to collect that data. Hell, one of the headings in Google’s summary judgment brief is “Skyhook was not entitled to deprive Google of its contractual right to collect location data on Motorola Android devices.” Can’t say it much plainer than that, really. And Google’s doesn’t hesitate to use its muscle to get what it wants from OEMs — it revised Samsung’s app license to specifically require Google location services be installed and used by default. Whether or not Google’s behavior is anti-competitive is a matter for the court to decide, but it’s definitely aggressive.

Emphasis is Patel's. To be frank, I don't have any problem with this in general. I wouldn't even call it "evily", just "businessy". Google is a public company in a highly competitive space and the drive to succeed is enormous. So is the desire to maintain quality and reduce fragmentation.

But here's the thing -- Google so constantly, consistently, and competitively misrepresents it as "open" and "good" in contrast to Apple's "closed" and "evil".
