Hitachi shows 30 percent thinner touchscreen LCDs

Japan's Hitachi Displays is developing an touchscreen LCD for mobile devices that is just 1.5mm thick, or about 30 percent thinner that today's displays. The touch panel layer was reduced from the 0.5mm thickness in traditional displays to just 0.1mm by eliminating the glass substrate and other materials from the design. The additional inherent noise emission that is a result of this will be handled by Hitachi's touch control software, the company said.

No other technical details about the screens are known at this time. Hitachi plans to begin mass-producing the displays in the second half of 2011, with them showing up in smartphones and other smaller electronics devices. [via CrunchGear]
