Possible 8.4" LVDS 1024x768 LCD?
I saw this today, and thought that this might be an option:
Apollo Displays actually post sample quantity (1) prices:
The LCD panel itself is $443, the inverter is about $38, a resistive touch-panel is about $50, and the USB touch controller is about $25.
8.4" 4:3 screen, LVDS interface, 300 nits, 250/1 contrast.
300 nits should be bright enough, shouldn't it?
They do appear to offer quotes for quantities as low as 10.
I wonder if they would sell sample quantities to me...
