Smallest Highest Resolution LCD?

Anyone know of a good LCD that's 12" or below, 16:9 with a native resolution of MORE than 800x480? Seems like that's the best that's out there as far as i can tell... really frustrating.

It doesn't need to be a "broadcast" monitor, just any LCD.

Also, anyone know if an LCD claims to support "up to" 1600x1200 resolution, does that actually make things look better?
If i was trying to focus HD video with that would it help to scale the resolution to 1600 or whatever rather than use the native of 800?

Thanks a lot...

Here's one to check out, but I think the price is in the $2,500 range:

I saw this one at NAB and it looked very nice also, but their site doesn't indicate the native resolution. I'm sure it's very expensive also:

Thanks guys...

I actually stumbled on the boacinema one... that's freakin awesome. Native 720p with HDMI in.

I read that the Red LCD is actually liek 1024x600 or something, and it uses a proprietary connector. Anyway to get around that?

It's a really interesting thing to note.. that i've seen native 1600x1200 lcd displays on like 4 year old Dell laptops... why can't just someone make something like that - something thin and high res. A lot of these stupid "video" branded monitors are like 8 inches thick... crazy.

A guy in his apartment seems like the only answer - but it's good enough for me!
