Well, there this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KKB5YS9mtktm wrote: ↑Mon May 13, 2019 6:24 pmI was wondering if there were any plans to have a display for a smaller bezel screen?
The one on the current screen is too wide for my current project and I wouldn't want to try to trim it and risk trashing my screen.
I would go with a different one, but I like using the DSI connection and having capacitive touch.
Likewise. In addition, during one of the early interviews given by Dr. Upton, he indicated an intent to follow the 7" screen with a 10" one.
At this point, it appears to be unlikely that the RPF/RPT will do anything further in this area. I'm not even sure that the effort to get the 7" display to market has ever paid off the development cost.mtktm wrote: ↑Tue Nov 12, 2019 11:51 pmSorry. For what ever reason I haven't received any emails saying that anybody replied to this thread....
What I meant on my original post is, the 7" Display is correct for what I need.
The issue I have with the screen is the black border part being too wide.
I know there are other 7" screen options but I like the capacitive touch and the DSI interface to the board.
Eben seemed to indicate a few months ago that an updated touchscreen is still a possibility during his AMA on Tom's HardwareW. H.

I thought the only "failed" product was the Pi A+, selling a "measly" 10,000 or so units.
That was the A (of which I have two). The A+ sold quite well.
The quote from Dr. Upton was that the Model A "only" sold 100,000 units. There are undoubtedly SBC makers that would consider that a roaring success. The A+, on the other hand, has sold well enough that it is still available. Apparently "smart display" makers fell all over themselves snapping up the A+ to add to displays.
