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.

Did you notice they haven't attached a number to this one? Me thinks the furor over the 4S/5 had something to do with it.

It is just the same as with Macbook, Imac, Mac Mini etc.
Only the Iphone still has numbers.

Anyways, I don't get what all the fuzz is about. It has a 264dpi screen! Yup dee doo! Amazing, incredible, awesome, off the charts! And probably still low on memory and some old Cortex A9 dual core.

Yeah, the resolution is nice, but the Transformer I had pretty much destroys the iPad in every other area, esp with ICS running on it. Attach the keyboard dock to it and it's boss.

Unfortunately, when they released a port of Lemur for the iPad, that convinced me to sell my TF and switch camps, but wasn't happy about it ;) The iPad is nice and has some specific apps that Android doesn't (esp in the area of MIDI control and softsynths), but to say there is no tablet market other than the iPad is very shallow indeed.

Did you also not notice a difference going from a 320x480 screen to 640x960? The legibility of text is dramatically higher with the better screen no matter how much memory and how many CPU cores you have.
