A bigger stepchild, but a stepchild. The ipod Touch4 hi-res screen resolution is amazing. I just got one for a friend and it looks wonderful. I know it's smaller and this helps alot, but even so, video resolution on it is wonderful. Games look 3D on the Touch, and the color and clarity is very fine. I know the cost and production demands (and maybe marketing need) did not allow the upgrade on the iPad 2. You can also see the limits of the iPad2 screen if you have the HDMI out plug. Hooked to my HDTV screen the TV image shows how lower res the iPad2 screen is. I loved my iPad 1 and now, the 2, but seeing what could have been is a little disappointing.
