30 años desde el Commodore 64


Hace treinta años y tras una puesta en escena en enero de 1982 durante el Consumer Electronics Show en EEUU, se produjo el lanzamiento oficial delCommodore 64, más popular de todos los ordenadores PC. Feo y grisáceo, parece un dispositivo prehistórico comparado a los ultrabook o a los tablets que existen ahora. Para su época sin embargo, suponía una alternativa más barata e útil a lo que existía en el mercado en ese momento; el nuevo sistema ofrecía sonidos y gráficos mejores que sus competidores más costosos y una biblioteca de software más extenso. El disparo de ventas (que aproximaron los 17 millones por todo el mundo) hacen que sea el dispositivo más popular de todos los tiempos.

Why Next-Gen Displays Might Be Your Next Point-of-Sale Marketing Tool

Transparent Displays
Displays such as Samsung’s just-announced, 46-inch LCD translucent panel display can display text, images or other content on an otherwise transparent glass pane, giving it a more organic look. The price has not yet been announced.

These transparent displays can be used as part of a storefront window or retail product showcases. And they can be programmed to show just about anything: advertising, prices, menus, kiosk presentations, store announcements and more.


Samsung Transparent Window Display

Next-generation screen technologies such as transparent displays, or those that render 3-D images without glasses, are becoming practical tools for small businesses. While they haven’t caught on with consumers just yet, they can be used by businesses as interactive digital signage, an eye-catching presentation tool at a sales kiosk or simply as something compelling for your customers to watch while they’re waiting in line.

To be sure, cutting-edge displays tend to be pricey — as much as $10,000 or more for higher-end models. Sticker shock aside, considering that $400 can buy a high-quality traditional LCD TV, prices on these devices should drop quickly.

Here are three emerging display technologies to keep an eye on for your business:

Samsung has signed a new joint venture with Gorilla Glass maker Corning to manufacture a new range of speciality glass substrates for its new organic light emitting diode (OLED) equipped devices.

Samsung already offers a variety of OLED televisions, which debuted at CES 2012 in Las Vegas, and is amongst the leading display manufacturers within mobile devices thanks to its Super AMOLED displays and associated variants.

Corning’s new Lotus glass substrate has been designed to deliver at “higher processing temperatures and improved dimensional stability needed to produce the new high performance displays”. Leer más “Samsung signs joint venture with Corning to create stronger OLED mobile displays”

Samsung tablets to get even bigger with expected Galaxy Tab 11.6 announcement

AndroidAndMe states that there is more to its report than rumour, noting it actually saw the device at this year’s CES 2012 expo and the 11.6-inch Galaxy Tab could be about to make its debut at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February:

I visited with Samsung System LSI during CES to discuss their upcoming Exynos processors and I saw one of their prototype tablets which was powered by Exynos 5250 and already running Android 4.0. I actually took pictures of the device (not really knowing what it was), but I was politely asked to delete them from my camera after the briefing was over.

Samsung is expected to debut what could be the biggest tablet device on record with the addition of an 11.6-inch portable to its Galaxy Tab range, AndroidAndMe reports.

In a market where smartphones are getting bigger and manufacturers are experimenting with different tablet form factors, Samsung looks to set to raise the bar with a device that is a full inch-and-a-half bigger than other offerings, raising questions as to whether vendors will set a limit to how big they will make them.
