    Loved the new iPad resolution but while I was downloading some retina wallpaper for my iPad on the iPad safari itself, I noticed that it resizes the image from 2048 x 2048 to 1024 x 1024! I thought it was the poster's fault for "accidentally" posting an old image but I checked the resolution on my computer and it reads as 2048 by 2048. If Apple creates a "retina" iPad, why didn't they think about loading pictures on Safari that are large than resizing it to smaller and losing its quality!

    & is there any way to fix it?

    There's currently a discussion about this on the retina ipad wallpaper thread (sorry, too lazy to get a link). In my testing safari will show in tab the image is 1024x1024 but if you copy the image (not save) and then paste it into an email to yourself it's 2048x2048. So I think it's some bug in safari that's saying it's 1024x1024 when it's not. The odd thing is there are some images that will say 2048x2048 and I can't figure out why.
