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.

Anyone know what the ppi are for the Asus Transformer due out later this year that will be 1080p? Frankly, there is no point in having a res that large, you certainly couldn't see things if you used it all. I think this is mainly to make it easier to have applications scale smoothly between iPads and iPhones.

The Asus will bet 224ppi - so about 15% less density than the ipad, but should still be more than enough. The real question about Asus is what kind of availability the Transformer Infinity will have and when...

I thought of getting TF700 as an upgrade to my AC100, but Tegra3 is weak even for 720. At 1080p it performance will be pathetic.

You couldn't see things if you used it at all? Or maybe text would be a lot sharper. I'll let you guess which.

There are a lot of people with bad eyesight here on OSnews. And they seem to think it is normal...
