    I read that from the Apple site a few minutes ago, and thank God they finally added it. For so long Apple have been cutting corners by not adding it...

    Agreed! And finally, finally, an IPS screen. I'd all but given up.

    So is this screen the EXACT same one that is in the new iPhone??

    Also, not on topic but can this touch take simultaneous photos and video recordings?

    Yeah, :apple: is saying so, anyway. And the specs match up. However, it may be made by a different manufacturer.
    I think from iPhone 4 to 4S they changed from LG to Toshi(t)ba, and people complained that the colors seemed more washed out and the blacks less black in the newer displays.

    I personally think the "fingerprint resistant coating" is overrated. I have the new third generation iPad that supposedly has the fingerprint resistant coating on it, but there are still finger smudges all over the place.

    there is no way the third IPAD has that, if it does it sure does not work

    It isn't supposed to magically prevent fingerprints from getting on the screen, just make them much easier to wipe off.
