Okay, I know that no one has the chance to test it yet! But i'm really curious about the Retina screen and batterry of the Ipad 3 (or whatever you call it)
- With the 1536 x 2048 resolution, will the images on most websites and Youtube videos look worse, like broken pixels or sth? Anyone familliar with the 27" Apple Screen has issue like this?
- Will I notice the difference in the screen compares to Ipad 2's if I hold my device around 20cm far away from my eyes.
- Anyone knows the power output of the new's ipad charger.. 'cause the battery is 70% larger. My ipad 2 takes more than 4 hours to fully charged up ... If it uses the same charger of ipad 2, it would take around 8-9 hours.

Everything will look better. They haven't just improved the resolution but also the colour saturation. In the same way that upscaled sd tv content looks better on a HDTV than on a non-hd, upscaled content will look better on the iPad 3.

Yes you'll easily notice the difference. From what I'm told, the biggest difference is in the text.

No idea about that one sorry. :(

true ... We are all waiting ...

No broken pixels on the screen; The websites will actually look better as the additional pixels allow smoother font rendering. You can compare today iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4: really a difference.

I bet you will see a difference; again fonts will be smoother; according to apple colors should be better

- Anyone knows the power output of the new's ipad charger.. 'cause the battery is 70% larger. My ipad 2 takes more than 4 hours to fully charged up ... If it uses the same charger of ipad 2, it would take around 8-9 hours.
maybe I missed something; where comes the 70% from ?
