Woojin dual-screen LCD
Korean manufacturer Woojin is deploying the Tenbuno, a 19-inch LCD monitor with a smaller, 8.4-inch screen mounted on top. The monitor can be flipped upside-down to reverse positions. The displays are meant to be used for separate purposes, such as watching TV or movies on one while web browsing on the other. The quality of the smaller display is substantially less than the main one though; whereas the 19-inch screen has 8ms response, 700:1 contrast, and resolutions up to 1280x1024, the 8.4-inch screen is limited to 800x600, 10ms response, and 350:1 contrast. Pricing and availability of the Tenbuno outside Korea (if any) is presently unpublished.
