iPad 3 to Get 2048x1536 Retina Display?
According to one analyst, Apple will be delivering a double resolution Retina Display to the iPad 3.
Kuo now claims that iPad 3 will deliver a Retina Display-like quality and resolution doubling to 2048x1536, an enhancement originally thought to make it into the more immediate release of iPad 2.The iPad 2 has not even shipped yet, but The Wall Street Journal has said the 2nd generation iPad will not get a retina display. Instead, it's believed the iPad 2 will offer a thinner and anti-reflective screen for better viewing in sunlight.
Depending on who you believe, the iPad 3 may arrive as early as this September, accelerating Apple's iPad release timeframe from a 1 year to 6 month delivery schedule. Another analyst has also predicted a true Retina Display for the 3rd generation iPad, but he pegged its release in 2012.
Meanwhile, the iPad 2 is widely expected to be released by April.
