In Theory: How iPad 3 Breaks the 1080p Barrier

Digital Foundry writes:

"It's that time of the year again. In the next calendar month, Apple is widely believed to be unveiling its third-generation iPad, and the engine at the core of the rumour mill is being cranked up to maximum warp in anticipation. Stalwart news site MacRumors has managed to acquire one of the new displays while Chinese forum WeiPhone has already hosted photographs of what many believe to be the iPad 3 logic board. Combined with other rumours currently circulating, a picture is beginning to form of the kind of device iPad 3 is and the level of power it is capable of delivering."

Big deal. I have a CRT from 2003 that does 2048x1536

It's called marketing. To the average person if you throw out that the resolution is that much better(even though it doesn't matter that much on that small of a screen) then they will be more excited about it.

I think it's good they are upping the resolution possibly since it's better than not doing it at all and charging the same price than they would have put it in.

Your CRT isn't battery operated and won't easily fit into your backpack.

LOL. Cause that's the same thing.
As if you have 3 agrees.

Apple haters are actually more stupidly bias and blind [and sometimes even more hipster] than Apple fanboys. Seriously.

meh mine does 25xx x 20xx its a viewsonic monster

res doesnt matter for most things at high res screen icons become so small to be un usable

A good monitor these days can pull 2500x1200 easily.

Other than perhaps some sort of professional, who the heck needs a 1080p (or more) tablet?

Kwertie3057d ago

Yeah it's pretty dumb. My Vaio is 16.4" and 1080p and stuff gets pretty small at that.

I suppose it's good in a way for competition and stuff, but apple needs to focus their priorities elsewhere and give the iPhone a 16:9 screen
