You may remember Pixel Qi, an ambitious display maker looking to provide users with brilliant displays that not only save energy, but which are actually readable in sunlight. Since we covered their 7" and 10.1" displays way back in May, the company has continued working, announcing in a blog post yesterday a new display which "matches the resolution of the iPad3 screen, and its full image quality including matching or exceeding contrast, color saturation, the viewing angle, and so forth with massive power savings." In the post, Mary Lou Jepsen, founder of Pixel Qi, goes on to explain the display's special low power mode which "runs at a full 100x power reduction from the peak power consumed by the iPad3 screen."

Of course, the new display's ratings in the table above are "proposed" and not quite official just yet.

If there's one thing that annoys us all, it's trying to use a device outside in the sunlight - on some devices it's almost impossible to see the contents of the screen without contorting into all sorts of odd positions to create just the right combination of shade and viewing angle.

However, display maker Pixel Qi is looking to change the game with its newly-announced duo of screens: a 7 inch 1024x600 and 10.1 inch 1280x800, both of which are low power and highly readable in outdoor light.
