So, Flight of the Conchords never made it quite clear what’s so special about New Zealand anyways, but Dell has heaped mystery upon mystery by leaking its upcoming 3008WFP UltraSharp onto its NZ online store. We knew the 30-incher was coming, with DisplayPort as its primary claim to fame, but there’s plenty else to like. The screen packs a 2560 x 1600 resolution, 370 nits of brightness, 8ms response times, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, and DVI-D (with HDCP), HDMI, S-Video, component and composite plugs just in case. Hopefully we’re looking at some sort of silly exchange rate silliness for the price, since NZ$2,699 (about $2,050 US) is roughly double what Dell is charging for its existing 30-inch 3007WFP display. Obviously, no word on when this will hit the States, but all signs point to soon.
Update: Ha! It’s now on the US site for $2,034 with a shiny green “Buy Now” button and 2 day shipping. Anyone want to purchase and tempt our envy? Also available in Japan starting tomorrow according to official Dell press release. Now, you do have a DisplayPort video card, right?
