Warner Crocker laments the lack of high-resolution Tablets

Warner is at it again, describing quite eloquently why he prefers high-resolution screens on Tablet PCs. He’s right, screen resolution choices higher than 1024×768 (XGA) are very limited, with the Toshiba M200 the only option I believe in a 12 inch form factor. The Gateway and Tecra M4 offer higher resolutions but in a 14 inch size that is just too big for many people to carry around daily. While I am sure that price is a factor with OEM decisions on screen resolutions the fact is many people, even long-time M200 owners, find the higher resolution on the 12 inch screen to be just too taxing on the eyes after a few hours. XGA seems to be the sweet spot for many PC owners and is a safe choice for OEMs who want to appeal to the biggest numbers of potential customers. My proof of that- almost half of all visitors to jkOnTheRun are running at 1024×768.
