    Even if it isn't on their website, give Vetco a call and they will ship it. They seemed to have about 20 of the displays on the shelf when I was in there today. I spoke with Vetco's owner and he said the LCDs were leftover from the end of a big run of industrial computers for a company called Intermec. They did have some information about the computers, but no pinouts for the panels themselves. You might be able to call up Intermec and get them, though.

    One interesting thing about the displays is that they are designed to be "direct sunlight readable." I often have visibility problems with my Lilliput in direct sunlight, so this could be a major plus, but I can't see myself going with something as large as 10" in my car. Oh, the LCDs have a native resolution of 800*600.

    Wow, Dan, that is some find!
    800x600 resolution means it is adapted for VGA, we just need the pinout!
    Transreflective AND touchscreen? $10 bucks?
    Could you please give me the address so I could drive up there this Saturday or Sunday?
    You got me very interested here! I beleive the $20 I spend for gas and the screen could be a very small price to pay for a 10" VGA touchscreen. How long do you suppose they would be in stock?


    edit: googled the name, is this the correct address?
    12718 Northup Way, Bellevue, WA 98005


    I must see those LCDs!

    I may drop by on the way down to Seattle tomorrow and grab a couple. I have no idea what I would do with them. But at $10 you can't go wrong.

    Could this be what they are for?

    This is what the PDF says:

    Display: 26.4cm (10.4) Active Matrix color display; All-Vis (sunlight readable) or transmissive (indoor). Active backlight control turns backlight off when not needed.

    Thanks
    @ Orangewhip, this looks like a tablet pc, and the screen is basically a laptop touchscreen.
    In this case we will not be able to connect it to VGA without the proper controller
    Still worth seing I guess.
