Toshiba plans to start flogging a 20.8in flat-panel monitor later this year and will use next week's CeBit IT trade show to kick-start the device.

The 20.8in colour TFT LCD panel is a high-performance model designed for workstation use. It supports up to 3,200x2,400 pixel resolution, has a 0.132mm
stripe pitch (192 pixels per inch) and can display 16.77 million colours.

Toshiba launched the display in Japan earlier this year. It will cost around £2,100 ex. VAT when it goes on sale this autumn.
