Dell 2209WA Leak

Dell has inadvertently posted a reference on its Canadian site to a new display that promises to overcome the weaknesses of most other LCDs its size. The UltraSharp 2209WA (2009W pictured) has the same 1680x1050 resolution, 300cd/m2 brightness and 1,000:1 contrast ratio as many similar 22-inch screens but has a feature nicknamed TrueColor that the company argues provides more accurate images; this and a particularly wide 178-degree viewing angle suggests the screen is using a rare, more color-rich PVA or IPS panel for the display instead of a more common TN panel that often has both fewer colors and narrower 170-degree views.

No images of the 2209WA are available, though Dell does reveal ports that include DVI with HDCP encryption, VGA and a USB hub for peripherals. A release date is similarly unknown; historically, leaks such as these have often come relatively shortly before the formal launch. UltraSharp displays also regularly cost more than Dell's standard displays. [via Whirlpool]
