Pixel Qi upgrades resolution to 1280×800

Pixel Qi is a company that produces screens that are somewhere in between e-ink and LCD. Turn the backlight on and you essentially have an LCD screen, while turning it off gives you a sunlight readable display (though one that’s capable of full motion video, unlike e-ink). The Notion Ink Adam was the first tablet to use the display, but reviews weren’t great. Basically it couldn’t live up to either LCD or e-ink, and the 1024×600 resolution is quite a bit lower than most Android tablets these days. The new Pixel Qi screens however are 1280×800, and should have the technology improved across the board. It’s not likely that we see any devices with the new screens until next year, but once we do, the old issue of indoor sharpness vs outdoor readability might be a thing of the past.
