Factories set to make 1600x1200 panels, could reuse the tech to make 1920x1200 panels. Now that tech has revved up on the TV side of things for 1080P, 1080P is cheaper so 16:10 is slowly being phased out.
Higher res will come out sooner or later in 16:9, but that will take another year or two at least.
The resolution of my 3007WFP-HC is 16:10, and for the average consumer, this is better. With 24 inch 1080p monitors, you have less pixels stretched across the same space.
It doesn't even matter. The industry will go forward until 30 inch monitors are affordable, or until they figure out that you can't run a 30 inch monitor with a TN panel.
Since 1080p has become standard, it is no longer important, and the 30 inch monitors are what decide the fate of the industry. So far, they're only 16:10. Everything always goes up.
