    The iPad 2 had wonderful display saturation, seemed just right.

    Apple mentioned the new display has 44% more saturation, maybe not so good ?

    I'm guessing it has a larger gamut so colors that are deeply saturated will display correctly and colors that aren't will still have the appropriate saturation. The iPad 2 covers about 48% of the AdobeRGB '98 gamut. If I am correct then the new iPad would cover about 70% of the AdobeRGB gamut. As a comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 covers about 63% of the gamut.

    "These gamut measurements are accompanied by a couple of caveats. First, we're disabling dynamic brightness because it doesn’t allow us to get an accurate (or reproducible) measurement of the display’s potential. Second, brightness is set to the highest value. If you don't use the same settings, your color gamut is going to look smaller than what we're showing here."

    Translation: not applicable in real life.
