The PlayStation 4 has long been rumored to be featuring resolution displays of over 4K, and now it looks like tablets are heading in that direction, which could ultimately result in the devices integrating with a 4K capable PS4.
According to a report from IGN today, Panasonic just unveiled the world's first 4K resolution tablet that checks in at 20 inches.
The tablet runs with Windows 8 and is geared toward photographers, video producers, and marketing professionals. Its resolution is around 3840 x 2560, which is code for unbelievable and literally being incapable of seeing the type of detail being displayed.
The tablet is powered by a 1.8GHz Intel Core i5 processor with graphics delivered by an unknown Nvidia chip with 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.
The ultimate selling point with this device is not its ungodly size, nor its speed, it seems to be the incredible detail it displays, and really, it's incredible that tablets are seeing 4K resolution at the same time HDTVs are.
This demonstrates the pace of competition, does it not?
Sadly, this particular device only manages to show a pixel density of 220ppi, which shockingly enough fails to measure up to that of the iPad (264ppi) and Google Nexus (300ppi). Take that for what you will.
PPI stands for the pixels per inch, which is a measure of the resolution of display screens, scanners, and printers.
It'll be really something to see how these devices evolve and influence gaming from a mobile standpoint, but also from the perspective of the entire industry.
Wii U has its GamePad, so why not PS4 have a 4K tablet eventually developed by Sony? Just a thought, what do you think?
