In other Samsung news, an announcement has come from headquarters in Seoul that the tech giant has commenced mass production for the "world's first" transparent LCD panels.

The 22-inch, glass-like display will be available in black and white as well as in color with transparency rates set at over 20% and 15% respectively.

Some of the nitty-gritty (but useful) specs include both HDMI and USB connectivity, a 500:1 contrast ratio and a WSXGA+ (1,680 x 1,050) resolution. Samsung also promises that these monitors are far more energy-efficient using 90% less electricity compared to a conventional back-lit LCD panel.

Even though the transparent displays are being churned out right now, no word on pricing or availability just yet. These will likely be used for business-only purposes such as advertising and other signage, so pricing might subject to how many panels are ordered at once.
