It appears Dell is moving into the super hi-def 2K monitor race, with the recent announcement of their newest model in China to jump into the 2K display market. More details from Engadget here:

As one company moves out of the 30-inch display race, another looks set to step back into it. Dell’s unannounced, but seemingly all too real UltraSharp U3011 has been snapped over in China, and we’re being told it’ll offer a formidable 2,560 x 1,600 resolution while maintaining the styling of the smaller U2711. TFT Central reports it’ll be a 10-bit H-IPS panel from LG Display, bearing a 7ms response time, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 370 nits of brightness (ahem, overkill), and 178-degree viewing angles on both the horizontal and vertical axis. HDMI and DVI connections come in packs of two, accompanied by a lone DisplayPort.

It seems these displays are on the rise with many expert graphic designers, and should be seeing more shores within the year or so.

Legal News: Dell sues 5 companies over LCD price-fixing

dell-logoLooks like Dell is jumping into the legal ring, and many in the industry are celebrating the PC giant’s guts, even if they’re predicting it will be a long battle with few real victors. We’ve covered court related joy before here at SS, but this one may be huge.

The company has filed a lawsuit in a San Francisco court today against four LCD makers – Sharp, Hitachi, Toshiba, and Seiko Epson – and Taiwan-based HannStar as well. The crime they’re accusing the companies of, you may ask? The much-chronicled, much-discussed and reviled LCD price fixing scandal.

At least two of the companies mentioned (Sharp and Hitachi) have already come out and admitted involvement and paid fines in other cases, so it doesn’t appear they have a big defense really. We’ll keep an eye on this as it develops.
