Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology (TMDisplay) announced an LCD display that can do VGA and QVGA on the same panel. This is not the same thing as changing the graphics card resolution to and from these two modes. The display itself acts as a "native" VGA and QVGA. The only usage I see for this type of display is basically now and not a year later because by then software that currently do not support VGA resolution will be rewritten. I just cannot see the effort to make a product that "efficiently" degrades a feature, in this case the resolution.
