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.

That's a really good point, and a lot of wasted screen estate for a 10" device.

I actual prefer the 4:3 Aspect Ratio.

The one and only thing that makes 16:9 desirable for a Tablet AR is video viewing, something I do occasionally but not often enough to care.

16:9 on a 7 inch screen feels ok to me (I have played with BB Playbooks for example), but on a 10 inch screen it is very uncomfortable to hold in portrait orientation - it is very top heavy. And in landscape it is too short vertically, I prefer the extra vertical real estate.

Anyone, to each his own. I get the argument, but I guess I am one of the few who like it the way it is.

2048x1280 would make for 16:10 at 241PPI at 10", 2560x1600 would break 300PPI at 10" for 16:10.
