What could possibly be sweeter than a svelte new 3007WFP in your (admittedly enormous) stocking this year? How about a 27-inch version with a few Benjamins to spare? While we juggled the possibility of Dell launching such a monitor a few months back, it seems the trigger has finally been pulled, and a Dell-branded panel of the 27-inch variety should be coming our way soon. DigiTimes has it that Samsung and Dell inked a "long term" agreement so Michael and the gang could bust out yet another LCD, and this time it'll be based on Samsung's LTM270M1 panel. The device will likely sport a WUXGA resolution, 6-millisecond response time, 3,000:1 contrast ratio, 500 cd/m2 brightness, and a sexy, thin frame whenever it lands on Dell's website. While reports didn't specify when we'd be able to order the forthcoming display, nor how many dollars it'll demand when we can, we're sure it'll hit sooner rather than later.
