I didn't get the touch panel one actually. Honestly I think it may be able to accept 1280x800 over HDMI. He ended up offering me a partial refund and I'm going to keep it. We'll see if I'm able to use it for what I need. I'll likely grab one of the multi touch panels from tft_lcd when he gets them (6.95"). The touch panel model doesn't have a touch panel controller and I didn't feel like trying to find one to work.
And what about the quality of this screen and its controller board as per two posts above ?
Do you know when it will be available the multi touch panel from tft_lcd - they are advertised since last year in July or so, and nothing?
I'm not sure, his site says the 6.95" panel will be in soon? The screen it self looks quite good, just gotta try and get the right resolution.
I'm not sure if its the identical panel as the nexus 7 I'll have to look for a tear down video or pics.
An update though, I decided to load up Ubuntu live CD and test it and wolla within seconds of is running native 1280x800 at 60hz over HDMI no problem and looks quite good. The only thing I'm wondering now is weather there might be some points I could tap or modify on the controller to control and adjust the backlight.
Thanks for the info, please keep us updated with your findings :)
