    I would assume the yellow tinted ones which technically are more accurate

    I cant even look at my ipad2 or iPhone 4 it's so blue and washed out now..the black level looks gray

    i would also agree the warmer tints will have better grey scale but to be fair, we dont know for sure which one they tested. ;)

    Actually...mine has a yellow tint.

    Yesterday i installed SpyderGallery and calibrated the app using a Colorvision Spyder 3 calibration device.

    The difference between my photos calibrated versus uncalibrated on the iPad screen is so minimal that it does not seem to matter.

    Actually, the difference between photos on my calibrated iMac and my iPad is non-existing.

    In short, the iPad retina screen is great straight out of the box. That is a rare thing!

    How can you tell if you have yellow tint on the new iPad

    One part of the screen will be darker than the other, or be clearly yellow on light grey backgrounds etc.

    If it has SEVERE yellowing, then a white background on max brightness will look very yellow.
