The 32-inch IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) display has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and is not available in US Stores.

According to an Apple news site, "the monitor has been available in the U.K. and other European countries since on or before November 30."

Well, at least those who buy a Mac Pro will be able to purchase a 4K display for it right on the Apple site... in the UK, anyways. Hopefully this offering makes it over to the USA online store soon, but, even more importantly, let's hope Apple's Thunderbolt Display gets that much-needed upgrade to 4K resolution soon. Dell has already beaten Apple to this punch.

it's just too bad you can't full advantage of it because the iPhones camera won't do 4k., better off getting a sammy 4k tv that way you can take full advantage the notes 3 4k camera

The Mac Pro can power four of those monitors. How long after the Mac Pro is released until we see one of these 'ultimate 50k setups' online.

Let's put this on Jony Ive's to-do list for the iPhone 6. :)

Right, because 4k monitors are aimed at people making videos/pictures with cameraphones.

I don't think we'll see 4K on the iPhone anytime in the near future unless Apple can figure out how to make those files a lot smaller without compromising the quality.

I agree, but the Mac Pro—any Mac, actually—has no problem with storing huge files... so a 4K Cinema Display from Apple can't be that far away!
