    Text is sharp as tack but Images look the same, why is this?

    Because you are blind.

    Do you mean images in your apps? That's because the app needs to support the new resolution. This will be a slow process as devs pushes updates.

    Because most images aren't vectors. You need to wait for updated higher resolution JPEGs and what not.

    It depends on which images you are talking about, but images are dependent on their own original resolution.

    Some may look worse on the higher resolution screen if they have to be scaled up to fill up screen real estate.

    It probably has more to do with the div attributes. If something is set to occupy 30% of the screen, then its going to do that no matter the resolution.

    Solution: Zoom way the crap out, so the pictures are on their native resolutions, it'll look great! (and completely unusable!)

    Most web images are low-res, like 72 or 96 dpi. The new iPad is 264 dpi. So of course low-res images are going to look pretty poor on such a high-res display.

    Agreed.

    Somehow all the reviewers missed this.

    Ya, pics look the same....

    Time for a trip to the Optometrist.

    Nothing will look the same as the iPad2. Nothing. Pixels are SO glaringly obvious on the iPad2. SD content will still look better than an iPad2.

    ----------

    What the?

    Ummm the internet looks AMAZING.

    Funny stuff..."internet isn't ready".

    It's been ready for along time. This is not the first his res display to used surfing the web. Geesh....

    Next you'll say the internet looks better on the iPad2?

    Go to apple.com on both and tell us if there's a difference or not... The site is supposed to be retina display compatible... Ill test as soon as my ipad is charged!

    High resolution images look so fantastic that laying your eyes on less perfect photos is depressing, but it's no different than watching a Bluray movie to then go back to SD quality.
