PenTile Displays Now in Space

According to a post by IKing201 and an article by Eric Zeman of InformationWeek, from amongst the many things being carried into space for the last space shuttle flight, there were three Samsung Nexus One smartphones.

These smartphones will be added to the SPHERES (Synchronized Position Hold, Engage, Reorient, Experimental Satellites), which the astronauts aboard the ISS use daily to perform a wide number of tasks.  As you may recall, Nexus One smartphones use using Samsung’s PenTile OLED technology, so it would seem that now PenTile technology has made it into space.
