Sharp has always been recognized as a leader in LCD technology: their Aquos line of flat panel televisions are simply breathtaking. Now the manufacturing giant has turned its attention elsewhere, announcing an in-car screen with an industry-leading 1500:1 contrast ratio.
Sharp is not new to the in-car electronics game, but this newest accomplishment simply reaffirms their place as one of the best. The new eight-inch widescreen, boasting an 800 x 480 resolution, will be implemented in dashboards, perhaps replacing conventional speedometers and gas gauges. In this way, you can have a fully customized instrument panel with GPS, backup cameras, and so on.
