11.6-inch Dell, Samsung
At the currently ongoing Display Taiwan 2009 show, local TFT-LCD panel maker Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT) has displayed products for netbook and CULV-powered notebooks, including an 11.6-inch destined for netbooks and a 13.3-inch for CULV notebooks. Unnamed industry sources indicate the netbook panel has already been ordered in mass quantities by PC makers Dell and Samsung. The former may be using the panel for its upcoming Inspiron Mini 11, but the latter's plans for a CULV system aren't yet known.
The 13.3-inch panel sports a 1366x768 resolution and is backlit through conventinonal blue LEDs, producing a brightness of 220cd/m2 and consuming 3.6W power consumption. It will begin production in July, according to its maker. CPT is also showing off an in-cell multi-touch notebook panel and 3D panels at the trade show. [via Digitimes]
