The Tech News: Dell New 30-inch LCD!!!!!!!!!

"There's no official announcement yet, but apparently Dell is going to roll out a massive 30-inch LCD monitor to compete with Apple's lust-inducing 30-inch Cinema Display. The 3007WFP is said to have a a resolution of 2560 x 1600 (that's WQXGA, baby!), a 14ms response time, 400cd/m2 brightness, 700:1 contrast ratio, support for HDCP, and a built-in 4-port USB hub and 9-in-1 multimedia card reader. No price, but it should hit North America on December 21st, which means you'll have to choose between buying Christmas presents for your loved ones or buying yourself one sweet LCD panel.

They're not saying much about it, but apparently Dell's forthcoming 30-inch 3007WFP display is a) real, and b) actually going to be announced during CES according to their site (hence their "check back on Jan 5, 2006" message), and c) has better specs as Apple's 30-inch Cinema display (those being same 2560 x 1600 resolution, but 700:1 contrast ratio over 400:1, 11ms over 16ms, and 400cd/m2 brightness over 270). Frankly we're a little bummed they're gonna miss the holiday rush with this one, but somehow we have a feeling a 30-inch display, Dell or not, is still one of those things we'd have to pony up for ourselves."
