Here's something you don't see every day. Dell has quietly added a new 23" 16:9 monitor to its Canadian online store. The company already launched a 24" display with the same aspect ratio in July, but this one actually has a higher—and far more unusual—resolution: 2048x1152, compared to 1920x1080 for the 24" model.
The new resolution equals around 2.36 megapixels, slightly denser than the 2.3 megapixels common in 24" 16:10 monitors. Despite the high pixel density, the new SP2309W seems to feature the same TN+film panel type as its 24" cousin. (Dell quotes a 2ms response time and 160° viewing angles, compared to 6ms and 178° for the PVA-based UltraSharp 2408WFP.) Other attributes of the new display include 300cd/m² brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a two-megapixel camera, and both DVI and VGA display inputs.
Dell charges $419.99 CAD ($352 USD) for the SP2309W right now. The company's U.S. online store currently prices the 2408WFP at $517 and the 24" 16:9 S2004WFP at $349, so the newcomer may end up priced closer to the latter when it arrives in the States.
