The end of a true classic?! 23in Cinema HD Display discontinued

Apple has marked the 23-inch Cinema HD display as “discontinued” on its Store web site, leaving only a modest stock of refurbished units at $749 USD to run out before the new 24-inch LED “dock” display ships.

New displays are currently limited to the 20- and 30-inch panels, and although Apple has several impressive new LED based display products in the pipeline, none are expected to be announced until at least Macworld San Francisco in January….

…..most likely, most models won’t ship in volume or catch up with initial until at least mid-February.

Diversifying from purely desktop-computer & laptop-docking displays, the new high-end LED displays in 16:10 and 16:9 versions adhering to 720P and 1080P HDTV resolutions with sizes in excess of 42 inches(!) will be announced in at least three phases during the winter and the last of the new LED displays is expected to ship before the first day of Spring — for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, at least.

Next generation iPhone(s) to be dynamically clocked?

Currently, the hardware within your iPhone 3G or brand new iPod Touch isn’t terribly different from that contained in the very first hand-held iDevices…..

An ARM11-class processor clocked at about 400MHz (412MHz since the 1.1 update on the first generation devices) but rated at 667MHz.

128 megabytes of SDRAM.

A unique graphics acceleration chip which performs quite admirably at rendering OpenGL ES with the hand-held iDevices’ fixed resolution of 480×360, and has managed to make those handhelds the kings of the proverbial portable gaming performance hill.

Embarrassing Sony’s PSP and Nintendo’s DS quite utterly.

Soon, those strengths with all take a step forward and the entry level will retain all of the existing ones while the high end extends them to unreal new heights. Read more

For now, read on to the full article for our first shotgun-blast of details and tidbits that found themselves at the top of our lists as we emerge from the proverbial Bat Cave with our old friends the Bothans and the old-school sources collectively known as the “Drunken Infinite Loop Dwellers Anonymous” (D.I.L.D.A.)…..you ain’t seen nothin’ yet and here’s a (small) taste of what’s to come.
