The thread below entitled "Great article to consider" posted by "Southernboyj" raises concerns about the size and storage crunch of the new Retina Display-Ready Apps, however, my concern is since the New iPad has a new chip optimized to run the new Apps, what is the effect on the older iPads? Here's the article: http://www.cio.in/news/retina-display-ready-apps-and-coming-ipad-storage-crunch-236502012 From reading the article, it appears these new Apps will run on all devices, and if so, will older devices like the iPad2 run slower with these larger Apps. Sure the older Non- Retina Display-Ready Apps will still be around, but you can be sure that they will now fall into the Legacy category by the developers, and all the effort will now go into development of the newer Retina Display-Ready Apps which will eventually dominate the market. So to me, this is a greater concern than the Coming iPad Storage Crunch the article is referring to. While I am happy with my new iPad2, I fear that it will run slower with the new Retina Display-Ready Apps and it looks like I will be returning it for the new iPad.
