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.

sorry 10-12 inches is way too close. More typical is likely 18 inches or more. For young kids the extra rez might matter. I personally don't notice the difference and wouldn't pick this tablet over a 1080p or even 1280x800 just for resolution.

A buddy of mine in the early 2000s had one of those tiny sony winows machines with the insane resolution. I frankly couldn't make out jack without squinting at it.
