But they can't do that yet. That's the problem. Maybe soon, but not yet.
Saturation isn't the cause of of a poor color rendition. Color pop and color accuracy kinda go hand in hand. For your creative side saturated colors that mimic real life are exactly what you are looking for. Well I should say are what I'm looking for, which highlights the different needs.
Over saturated colors are indeed a color problem. Stores like that "pop" too. It sells Tv's, but hopefully when they get home, people turn it down. When colors are over saturated, they don't mimic real life. Most real life color isn't that saturated. Flesh tones certainly aren't orange!
In the case of the tablet if it can be properly calibrated then groovy. Otherwise it is not a machine we even need to discuss in the sense of serious color reproduction.
Hopefully. But if they get it close, that would be fine. It's not intended as a professional color tool.
I'm not sure why everybody is focused on AMOLEDs. There are other technologies beyond the Active Matrix set. Ignoring that though I think it is a mistake to look at a hand set OLED screen and thing that will represent what is available in larger formats. Especially in the case of Zune which appears to have a standard OLED display built for a panel tech that has been around for awhile. If Apple does go the OLED route I fully expect them to introduce a new technology.
I don't know of any "new" AMOLED tech. It's all just small improvements in efficiency, lifetime etc. I'm hoping that Apple waits until it gets what it wants rather than jumping in with somthing average.
Of course OLED might not be designed in then we have the probability of a LCD screen. This is still suboptimal for some but there is also huge potential with the latest LCD tech. Finally they might introduce something totally different in the way of display tech.
Probably an LED. The other tech available now just doesn't look very good, and has other issues.
