Lenovo has announced its ThinkVision L220x Wide display which is a 22-inch display with 1,920x1,200 resolution and this is as far as we know the first and only 22-inch widescreen display with this resolution. Two inches might not seem like a lot, but it's a matter of getting the right kind of LCD glass and most manufacturers only makes what's economically viable. However, there's always a way if a company is willing to pay enough for a certain panel size.
The ThinkVision L220x features a built in USB hub with four ports and it has a D-sub and DVI with HDCP support for video input. It's also got autorotation, which means that some clever software on your computer will automatically rotate your desktop to fit the screen correctly if you pivot the screen.
The panel has a 6ms response time gray to gray, a brightness of 300 cd/m2 and a contrast ration of 1000:1. It also has a 178 degree viewing angle both horizontally and vertically. It's expected to retail for about US$550 which seems kind of expensive considering that you can get 24-inch widescreen displays for about the same kind of money.
