So I realized today that while, yes, it may be disapointing that Apple didn't "upgrade" the screen for iPad 2, that all the hubbub about a "retina" display and the existing display being "bad" or otherwise looked down upon is extremely exaggerated. The only screen currently "better" than the iPad or iPad 2 is the screen on the Xoom. It is 1280X800 (16:10 AR) and 150 dpi. The iPad is 1024x768 (4:3 AR) and 132 dpi. The only reason it's not technically an HD screen is due to the aspect ratio. So I realized the entire "iPad 2 display sucks, Xoom is better" flamewar that's been going on since Wednesday is all over 288 pixels and 18dpi. (or maybe it's 23.2% more pixels, thanks ZilogZ80 but still) Seriously? The only differences in the iPad (1&2) screen and the Xoom screen are due to the aspect ratio. Can we just put this display nonsense to bed?
