totally bs.
how the heck it is going to be exotic for such a long time when there are 720p 4"-4.5" screens and 5" 1080p on its way with the cost of 30$(not retail).
they can force the market/customers to have those products for the price they want.
when apple/samsung/motorola/etc have 720p 640p 4" to 5" or similar screens on their phones, at the cost of 30$(not retail) you know that they can make a 12" combining 4 of those screens at the cost of 200$ with the proper circuits.
they could offer a 25" product with that resolution with a resonable price, but marketing has to do its tricks.

same thing goes on for the cpus also. the phones get a 25$ quad core arm, like that in sgs3, or the dual iphone 5 soc for the same price. a budget browsing and office pc would cost though 10 or 20 times more than that price. totally ridiculous marketing tricks.

Fuck that. Just bring on the 8K - 7680×4320@120Hz TVs, like the ones that were recently tested in Japan during the Olympics. That is true resolution. Sharp, Panasonic and Sony already produced some prototypes, so go go go!!

While I would like to see 8K as well, the bandwidth and processing power required to stream content at such a format are not yet available as far as I know. The top-of-the-line gaming PCs of today are going struggle running modern games in 4K resolution at 30 FPS, and running games in 8K will cause them to have a meltdown (although they should be able to handle video in both formats just fine).

4k is only useful if you want to sit 5 feet from a 50 inch screen, or 6 feet from a 70 inch screen. Farther than that, the difference with 1080p is not noticeable.

The limit is the acuity of the eye.

1080p will be the standard for a long time to come. At this point nothing supports 4k. Consoles don't, blu-ray doesn't, tv stations doesn't, streming video doesn't etc.. Most tv stations still only support 720p let alone 1080p. I mean hell just look how long it took TV stations to move to HD. Many of them didn't move to HD until 2008! i remember when HD first came out in 1998 no one supported it, it wasn't until 3 or 4 years later until you started seeing support for it and only then it was minimal support, because HD was still considered highend back then. So this would be correct in regards to 4k being exoctic for 5 years before it starts moving into the mainstream market. Once the research and development fees end in 3 years it will cause 4k tv's to drop rapidly in price much like HD tv's did and you will start seeing it enter into the highend mainstream market. But it's going to take another at least 3 ot 4 years after that when things become a lot more standard and prices drop for 4k tv's below 2,000 dolars until you start seeing 4k tv's reach the mainstream market.

In 1080p you can still see juggies even on High End PCs with highest details in games. To solve it we have to use Antialiasing which removes juggies but makes the image blurry so you loose a lot of details in games and the graphics quality with AA enabled is not so detailed and good as without AA. So in 1080p gaming we still have to compromise - without AA and with highest details settings have the best picture quality but see the juggies especially when moving or remove the juggies by enabling AA and see the blurry graphics with lower details.

In 4k resolution we will not see the juggies anymore even without enabling AA so we'll get the best graphics quality without any compromises in 4k resolution.
