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.

Well sorry, boo-f--k*n-hoo.

It's still non-retina if it's below 300ppi, imho.... regardless of what you say.

I like your, I am going to close my ears and not listen to reason attitude. :-)

Apple never defined Retina Display to be 300+ ppi. There is distance aspect to the calculation and it was mentioned in the iPad announcement with a diagram and everything.

Retina is a marketing name of high-res iphone/ipad display.
As you can see in the quote posted above it is 300ppi at 10" distance.
Absolute 300ppi metric has no sense.

What a load of pedantic nonsense. Go to an Apple Store next week, look at a new iPad, can you see any pixels? How does the display look? Report back. Let's move on. Please.
