Just wait until we start hearing SUPER HD frown about, then everyone will want it and we will finally get cheaper 2560*1440 monitors.

Indeed, just as the amount of megapixels don't necessarily determine image quality, and the amount of cores a CPU possesses doesn't scale linearly in real-world performance, pixel density is not the primary determining factor in visual quality. Samsung and other OLED manufacturers are definitely headed in the right direction. Despite the SGSII Epic Touch 4G and T-Mobile's SGSII having the same resolution as their smaller siblings, the displays are still rich with color and are quite appealing.

You don't hold a tablet any closer to your face than a notebook computer's screen though. Phone, yes for sure.

It isn't just the consumer. It's kind of funny really. It's more like a conspiracy haha. You see 1920x1080 is at this point a de facto standard at this point in the industry. From recording to data storage to editing to broadcasting to media storage to consumer viewing devices it is just the standard as of now. But adopting the 1920x1080 format was basically the biggest advancement in broadcasting since color TV. And the ATSC, Grand Alliance, NAB, and etc. all had to be on board to get this done (along with tens of thousands of people). I wont waste time explaining more but you get the idea. This was a massive advancement that took nearly a decade to pull off. And computer monitors because they are used often similar enough to a TV and are considered by most consumers to be "like" a TV, monitors fall under this as well.

Tablets though don't have to deal with these huge incorporated constraints. As an emerging market separate of the broadcasting and media playback systems it can play ball by a lot of its own rules... to include its resolution standards.

This is all in addition to pixel density that was mentioned above (which is a huge huge point too).

I'll never understand though why they're moving to 2048 x 1536 for iPad when the Air is sitting at only slightly over half that rez despite being way more capable to drive it.
Yeah... it sucks that it's so hard to find a 15" 1920x1200 laptop these days too. Unless you're spending a boatload of money.

It would be nice if Manu.'s like Samsung put out a display that didn't have glaring issues like screen un-uniformity before we feel the need to double the resolution. Or this year's en-vogue move of jamming a bunch of useless apps into the TV so they have more stickers to put on the box. I mean really, I'm pretty sure my microwave can even stream Netflix by now.
Pics or it didn't happen!
