Ok so I had been under the impression that both generation iPads had the same display. I have had an original iPad since September, and today just purchased an iPad2. My original is a 64g 3g ATT My new one is a 64g 3g Verizon Just compared the two side by side for speed, and was shocked at the noticeable difference in display. My iPad 2 is more vibrant, brighter (both unplugged at full brightness), and the colors and details are crisper than the original. My original got minimal usage, so it is not a wear and tear thing. Was I incorrect in thinking that the two had the same display? This new iPad is more like my iPhone4 in display than it is the original iPad.
