Sony cooking up widescreen mobile display

Chris Ziegler

Some modern phones seem to have enough trouble with battery life as it is without throwing a glorious 16:9 display into the mix. Be that as it may, Sony's hard at work on exactly that, and we admittedly can't help but revel in the thought of dropping one of these suckers into a Sony Ericsson handset somewhere down the line. The screen is apparently only a part of their "RealityMAX" graphics subsystem that'll presumably handle all your MPEG and 3D acceleration needs, and at just under 3 inches long with a 432 x 240 resolution and 262K color depth, we've no doubt that watching a movie (or at least some manner of broadcast television) would be a very rewarding experience indeed.
