I like this part the most. Maybe Nadella is one of the lucky 500? :wink:

We have been in touch with one of their Vice Presidents and Satya Nadella wants to get a unit, so now we are preparing one for him.

And the part about the screen is very informative and promising:

we were able to persuade one of the top tier vendors to provide the display we wanted

Can you tell which vendor will provide the screen?


#3

I believe its been mentioned as an IGZO display, which would be a Sharp LCD, I believe.


#4

Short googling brought this up:

IGZO-TFT and its applications are patented by JST. They have been licensed to Samsung Electronics (in 2011) and Sharp (in 2012).
Wikipedia

So the open question is: Will it be Sharp or Samsung?


#5

To me it seems like the same panel as SP4, just an updated revision. Because they are really close and the differences are quite minor… I think I’ve also seen somewhere that SP4 has IGZO too, although it wasn’t advertised


#6

The display is slightly larger though, right? Isn’t the V’s footprint larger?


#7

The screen is the same size, the footprint is larger because the V has larger bezels.

they moved the url to…http://winbuzzer.com/2016/12/01/eve-v-the-story-of-the-crowd-developed-surface-pro-4-killer-from-finland-featured/

Sorry for that - there was an issue with the redirection. It is fixed now and both urls work fine now.
