I've always hated ipads, but this thing is going to be sweet.

I certainly won't even consider buying one.  It is a time when HD content and 16:9 content ratio is reigning and I can't believe that Apple must insist on taking a step backwards.

It's mainly for reading. The higher pixel density just means a cleaner picture, not a smaller one. That's what Hi-DPI does. The image will still be the same size compared to the iPad 2, it'll just be of higher quality. Not sure how anyone could have a problem with this.

Apple fronting the money for this development means every other company gets to benefit from the reduced price of implementing it into their own products. You're going to see it on Android too and no Apple doesn't own the patent because they didn't invent it, they paid for the R&D of another company to invent it.

I disagree sooooo much, if we keep producing 1080p screens, we will never get out of this spiral

I'm glad apple is taking the step to the next level in resolution

Um... lets overturn government too then... Your argument makes no sense... :Z

This would be awesome to use to show photos to clients.

Again, apple is the first to push boundaries of consumer hardware...

I don't get how this screen can be that nice at 9.7" when we have IPS screens that run for 2x that much at 30". Its just blowing my mind...

Plus, how good of a GPU will be needed to run this at a crisp 60fps that iDevices are known for?

The Ipad 2 after nearly 1 year still has one of the best if not the best GPUs ever put into a tablet. The A6 will be even better. I'm not worried, I'm just afraid of content fragmentation from all the idevices, I don't wan't a stupid GalaxyTab 10.1 again.

This. A million times this.

Even if you don't buy one, millions will. Fabs will be in place to produce such screens and everybody wins.
Bye Bye 775

I tried to explain jaggies to some friends once, they said "stop, I don't want to know". It should be noted that the average person is fully capable of perceiving the difference, they just don't care.

And I agree that being a tech leader in this area is one of the few things that Apple does that benefits everyone.
