So would the PPI be double of the old iPad since it's just double resolution? 132 to 264?

EDIT: Answered my own question, yes.

I've just realized that iPad 3 can play 2K video in native res or 1440p (aka Extreme HD) when zoom in. Full HD is so 2011. I need to download some 1440p or 2k movies and make them iPad friendly. Gotta be ready!

You're saying HDMI output, a feature I bet hardly anyone would ever use in practice (Airplay mirroring/wireless screen scaring is a hell of a lot more viable on a tablet, which is obviously handheld and not supposed to have trailing cables) is more important than 4x the pixels on screen, potentially impacting almost everything running on the system? .. Ummmm.

Who cares what it's called, nobody's making a fuss about the name!

uhhh?

What am I going to do with an HDMI port in my iPad except make the device larger?

A bump in screen resolution is a very real and tangible benefit.

If the iPad 3 has a 2048 by 1536 resolution display, than yes, the iPad 3 will have 264 pixels per inch.

Never happen, I don't think anyone said that. Did many of us say the technology was not available for the iPad II? Yes. Do many of us say, this will probbably cost more than most think? Yes.

Technology moves on. What could not be done last year might be done this year and might be done cheaply next year.

Makes me laugh how some people on here still doubt the retina display, there is WAY too much evidence now. The iPad 3 will have a retina display, period.

Then it's not quite a "Retina" display. Typical human eyes can see to the point of roughly 300 PPI. I bet you'll still be able to see pixels with the human eye.

I'm guessing that only the high-end iPads will have retina display.

Will probably be something like:
$499 32gb, $599 64gb, $699 128gb and $999 retina 128gb.

I hope I'm wrong, but retina displays still are too expensive for a $500 device.

Depends on viewing distance. iPad is held further from eye than iPhone typically, so iPad 3 likely will still be considered Retina by Apple.

And it looks like those are REAL pixels, with the full 3 subpixels (RGB) each. Unlike PenTile displays with effectively less than their claimed resolution. Thank goodness Apple has stayed off the OLED corner-cutting bandwagon!

The key is pixel density and viewing distance...

I have perfect vision and I'm young, held my iPhone as close as I could and cannot make out any pixels. Unless the iPad 3 is the same way, it's not retina to me. It's still going to be a great display, don't get me wrong. I just like to point out the technicalities.

So down my posts if you want. I don't care

So your saying that photographers wouldn't want to take an iPad out in the field with them and be able to see VERY high resolution pictures they have just taken and accurately make initial modifications if necessary?

This has been said countless times but, a Retina Display is not defined by a fixed number of PPI it's about how far away the screen is from you eyes relative to PPI

---------

This iPad is going to be amazing! Defiantly will be getting one if it has a Retina Display!
