That works out to a maximum 625 dpi resolution if the pixels were defined as one capsule each. That is just beyond LCD bleeding-edge tech so that kind of backplane is still years away. SVGA 6in panels run 166 dpi or about 14 capsules per pixel, XGA panels 221dpi or about 8 capsules per pixel. Going much higher will probably degrade contrast long before thickness becomes an issue.
