    When do we expect to see transparent display iPad? Something similar to what seen in Avatar movie? I know it is fake, but that will be a very cool stuff. Samsung already has the display panel. Is it not practical? Will it be in iPad 4, 5?

    The screen is doable, but where does everything else go? You need the processor, memory, storage, and other chips as well as the battery. Unless there's some sort of amazing breakthrough in battery tech so that the battery can fit in the bezel, I don't see it happening anytime soon.

    It looks cool in sci fi stuff, but I have to imagine it'd be REALLY annoying in real life.
