LG, in a press conference about 3DTV, bored me. 3D is boring. What’s interesting is LG’s work on PPI (Pixels Per Inch), and how they view different display technologies, like IPS and OLED. So, for the sake of science, why not throw an OLED display…in an iPhone?

That’s exactly what LG did, and I was just inches and seconds from stealing it. If I worked for this company, I’d have it and be halfway through Mexico. Sure, it’s not as clear as the iPhone 4′s Retina display, just 100PPI, but who cares? Video quality is undoubtedly better. LG’s new IPS LCDs use less than half the power of OLED displays, but who cares? IT’S OLED!

PPI count is apparently very important to LG, as you can see in the images above. I can sympathize. We all want clear images…but as you can see from the 52″ TV above, it really doesn’t matter all that much. Just stand a few feet farther back. Get glasses if you can’t see far and quit whining. And LG, watch your back. I’m coming for that iPhone.
