    I have an iPad 1 and the biggest difference between my iPad's screen and my iP 4's screen (apart from the res) was the fact the iP 4's screen seemed to be 'on' or 'stuck to the glass. With the iPad you could see from acute angles the screen was a small distance away from the glass.

    With the new iPad, is the screen any closer to the glass?

    The glass is thinner (about 27% I think) so it's nearer to the front surface of the glass, which is what I think you mean.

    I believe the display is bonded to the glass on the iPhone 4, whereaa the iPad and iPad2 have the glass/digitizer and the display as separate pieces. As a result, at the right angle, you can see thickness of the glass sitting against the display.

    However, the iPad 2 display might look closer since the glass is 0.2mm thinner (iirc from the iFixit video).

    Probably not.

    The keynote reveals nothing regarding the screen.

    iFixit said no in their teardown yesterday. It's the same basic assembly as ipad1.

    Its not bonded see ifixit teardown. It is a lot closer and the pressure is causing the discoloration/light bleeding for many of them.
