    (how does*, sorry.. fail)
    I'm seriously considering buying an iPad. I'm really happy with my iPhone 4 and just enjoy the wonderful world of HD.

    However, I'm still interested in the iPad. I know I can whip out my iPhone 4 to do most of my daily activities, but I want something like the iPad for those times when my phone's charging or conserving battery life.

    How does the iPad display stack up against the iPhone 4 exactly? I know both support 720p playback, but does the low PPI count (132 vs. 326) on the iPad mean that much if it's 1024 by 768?

    Also, a small question.. have the app developers been updating app icons so they're high res like with the iPhone 4? Or does it strictly work with the Retina Display only (meaning we aren't going to notice anything)? Thanks, hope this isn't too confusing.

    That was pretty lame.

    How will I sleep at night knowing I've been pwned?!

    I went to a couple of apple stores. To my eyes, the ipad display looked a bit anemic after looking at the iphone 4. But this was in extremely bright stores. Much more useful would be feedback from anyone who has both. I suspect real life conditions vary from those at the store.

    The same thing happens when I look at my 3GS.. my eyes have to adjust right after using the iPhone 4.

    I just want to hear from people who have both like you said.. or people who have a 3GS thrown in the mix as well.
