Apple And it was that time of the year again - Apple held one of its product announcements. This one focussed on the iPad mostly, and while some will call it a disappointment merely because virtually everything had already been leaked, I'm still in awe over the fact the newly announced iPad has a 2048x1536 display. My mind is blown.

@ Thom:

and sure, this display has probably been developed by LG or whatever

Apple did claim they developed the technology themselves. They say the same on their webpage:

In order to create a display with four times the pixels, we had to design it in a completely new way.

And for the Iphone 4:

By developing pixels a mere 78 micrometers wide, Apple engineers were able to pack four times the number of pixels into the 3.5-inch (diagonal) screen found on iPhone 4S and iPhone 4.

Apple has also filed several lcd patents, so they really seem to do their own research.
