Take a peek into the transparent future, as Samsung begins production of their backlight-less LCD screens.

Samsung has announced that they have started producing 22-inch transparent, yes transparent, LCD panels for this year. The company boasts that these LCD panels have the “world’s best transparency rate”, with 20% transparency for black-and-white type and over 15% for colored. That means you get to see clear images despite using only ambient light as a backlight for the screens, plus you get to use less electricity along the way.

The 22-inch screen will have a 1680×1050 resolution panel with a 500:1 contrast ratio, and will also be compatible with HDMI and USB. However, it looks like these will be used for advertising and corporate teleconferencing first, before letting the rest of the world take a crack at them.

Complaining about iPhone 4's under 4-inch sized screen? Wait 'till iPhone 5 hits the shelves, as the upcoming handset will join the 4-inch smartphone party.

Talking about screen resolution, iPhone 4’s Retina Display definitely brings its competitors out of the league. But when it comes to screen size, it falls behind the “bigger is better” race. Still, anyone who has seen some of the latest Android phones with screens of more than four inches will appreciate the added size.

And it seems that Apple will be joining the crowd as DigiTimes stated that the iPhone 5 will have a 4-inch screen. This feature can slightly close the gap between the phone and the tablet offerings. In addition to this, it would make even more sense if Apple will also release a smaller and cheaper iPhone option to go with the next handset iteration.
