like others have said it doesnt need to be retina status but it does need an upgrade. just enough to keep the price the sameYou don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

A resolution greater than 1080p on a 9" screen is huge overkill in my opinion. Most people can't see the difference between 720p and 1080p unless you go to about 40".
This would mean that the iPad would be able to produce a higher resolution than even the 2nd Gen Apple TV (which is ridiculous that it can't do more than 720p, even tho an iPhone 3GS can play a 1080p file)
Maybe Apple is also planning to (finally) realize that it's now 2011, and start offering 1080p Movies on the iTunes Store.

I don't know why people thought Apple would have a 300+ppi resolution screen anyways because that would be crazy. They quadrupled the number of pixels on the iPhone 4 so that all apps would fit correctly on the new screen so its pretty obvious that they would do the same with the iPad. They'll blow the Android tablets out of the water since the max resolution I heard for them was 1280x800.

If this is true, the iPad 2 can be used as a computer monitor. Heck, it will even work well with iTeleport (if there is one for the iPad).Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

And THAT is why I was waiting for the second generation iPad! The current screen looks great for most activities, but a smaller pixel pitch was needed for fine print.They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

I cant wait to see the iPad 2. I might even get one if I really like it better from previous iPad version.

I made a wise decision to wait for the nextr generation, and trust me it was not easy.Common Sense Its Not So Common

I would kill.. like literally kill a human being.. for a 24" display with 326ppi like the i4's Retina. Sure, I'd need a GPU with a built-in nuclear fission generator to drive it, but that's a problem i can figure out.
F*** old people and their ****** eyes. If I'm not squinting to see the pixels, I don't want it!

You also want them to increase PPI not decrease it. Your OS also has a much bigger problem running those resolutions than your GPU. Well get there on the desktop, but I imagine it's at least a few years away. Unfortunatly old eyes are a big obstacle. Unlike CRTs, on an LCD you generally want your native resolution to be your optimal resolution. If they had a 50% higher DPI display, it would need to scale pixels to look normal, and scaled pixels look lousy. Just like we've seen in the last year in the mobile space, high res screens are great, but software support is vital if you actually want to pull it off.Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. -- M.C.
