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.


If Apple followed the norm then they wouldn't be "Think Different" now would they? The problem with people is, they want to be everyone else because they can't see beyond everyone else. The tech industry needs a company like Apple to see beyond the average person because Apple is not your average company. I can't imagine a world without Apple. Everyone would look and be the same, how boring is that? Then again, if boring is your thing…I have nothing against it.

Why is this unnecessary? You guys want to just stand still with your hands in your pockets. This is con, people here have unnecessary everything when it comes to tech. I don't get it? Pushing the boundaries is a bad thing on ocn now?

It's definitely interesting from a "oh look, so it is possible!" point of view. For all practicality purposes, my 23" is running 1920x1080 and I can only notice the pixels if I have my face pressed against the screen.
So I don't see the point in squeezing 2048x1536 into a screen that's literally one-third the size of my monitor, other than the reason of "because we can". There is a definite limit (in pixels) on the level of detail the average human eye needs to consider something "crystal clear".

But new tech is new tech, and all of it is appreciated here by OCN biggrin.gif
It's just that the Apple logo makes most people here hiss and spit (including me to some degree), for reasons not too hard to justify.

Seems like if its Apple, it is. It really doesn't surprise me anymore. Look at just about any news post on here now. Its fully of either immature, clueless comments or wild and crazy conspiracy theories, depending on the topic..

This is absolutely awesome, I called this the moment the iPhone 4 came out with a retina display. Few believed me, of course, but here we are! I knew Apple would be the first to release a "retina" slate, it'll be good for marketing.

It's not. The higher resolution will result in all content looking amazing. Text and the UI will look sharp, games will look even better, images and video will look great. Apple's going to release the first slate that can actually display 1080p content on the screen. And 4:3 is better than 16:9 for a slate that displays a lot of different content. Movies and games are great on 16:9 and good on 4:3, but books, browsing, and most similar tasks, are great on 4:3 and only okay on 16:9.

That's about right, but it's because of their choice of using an LED-backlit display. According to what I've read from Anandtech on the subject, the benefits are less power consumption and less heat, but less colour accuracy. It's not because the "IPS" is any less quality, it's just the type of display -- else, it'd be up there in the 90-95's.

We really need a proper test done to see who the hell can spot the difference in "sharpness" when faced with different pixel densities. All this talk of "everything will look more awesome!!" with zero evidence to back it up is getting tiring, especially when the argument is about 2048x1536 on a 9-10" device rolleyes.gif

It's nice that Apple is pushing the pixel boundaries.
I hope they do that to their laptops so that other manufactures can follow suit.

This, And this.

I really like this guy. He actually is using common sense. So friggin' what if you can see a little "edge" on your computer monitors, If Apple's intent is to "push boundaries" then why push this boundary. Completely unnecessary, if most apple consumers actually knew a lot about the resolution, (not OCN users but just an average Joe) and how likely of no difference it will make; ipad 3 sales would be terrible. thumb.gif

Common sense people, if you can barley see and edges on your 1080p montior that's +22inches, then why do you need a "tablet" that's 3 times-as-dense?

I've got an iPhone 3GS (163 PPI) and an iPhone 4S (326 PPI) and the 3GS actually looks blurry to me because the pixels are so large. The iPad's pixel density is actually less than the 3GS at 132 PPI, and the iPad 3's PPI will be 264... so you'll definitely be able to see the difference.

Indeed, I'm hoping the next generation iMac's tout 3840x2160 and 5120x2880 resolution displays.

The same reason why you need a 326 PPI display over a 163 PPI display. The difference is astounding, and when I go back and look at my 3GS it looks blurry. The same will be true of iPad > iPad 3.
