LG Introduces 23-inch 240 Hz IPS LCD Panel for Monitors

LG Display, a leading innovator of TFT-LCD technology, announced today that it has launched the 23-inch 240Hz LCD for monitors (dual monitor and TV use) that refreshes at a rate of 240 frames per second to deliver clear picture quality with no ghosting effect.

The industry have been engaged in a heated race to improve the motion picture response time (MPRT), unveiling products with refresh rates of 120Hz or 240Hz which are respectively twice and four times as fast as broadcast signals (60Hz). However, the technology has mostly been applied to LCD panels for high-end TV panels that are 40-inch or larger. This is the first time that 240Hz technology was applied in a 23-inch product under mass production.

LG and Prada show off iPhone look-alike

The LG/Prada KE850 designer handset was announced last year, but looks awfully familiar. The KE850 looks very similar to the Apple iPhone, right down to the form factor, the touch screen, and the glossy user interface. The KE850 uses a tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE radio to connect to wireless providers, and has a slew of interesting features. It comes with an 800mAh battery, a 2 megapixel camera with LED flash, an SD memory card for storage, full multimedia playback features, Bluetooth 2.0, and USB 2.0. While the KE850 is slightly smaller than the iPhone, 9.9 x 5.4 x 1.2cm to the Apple gadget's 11.5 x 6.1 x 1.2cm, it lacks some serious features that are iPhone exclusives. The LG device lacks Wi-fi, and costs a lot more than the iPhone ($777, or 600 Euros compared to $600, or 463 Euros for the best Apple iPhone).
