Hi Iniewski, I apologise, I should have been clearer. My comment was more to "why hasn't this been 5+ years ago instead of the silly gloss screens". I mean they are exact opposites, we've gone from matte to silly gloss to now really good matte :-)
For me personally, I have always been at a total loss to understand why anyone in their right mind would want a glossy LCD panel on a laptop or computer monitor. While watching movies in a totally darkened room there might be an argument for it, given that research dating back the late 70's suggests TV/movies should be watched in a room with "mood" lighting even that seems rather silly.
Is there any information available how Philips's moth-eye nanostructure technology compares with the technology used by Sharp? What would be the additional cost to the customers to avail this feature? :-)

All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
