    Default iPad 3 to feature Retina Display?


    This has been a hot topic of discussion, as the iPad 2 should be coming shortly, and many of us are wondering if there will be an upgraded screen resolution. PC World has been reporting on the topic and says that IDC analyst, Tom Mainelli, commented that Apple will indeed bring Retina displays to the iPad, but not until about 2012, meaning that this would be possibly for the 3rd Generation iPad and not the iPad 2.

    "I think the Digitimes story probably got the resolution right, but the iPad version wrong," Mainelli told PCWorld via e-mail. "Our sources say Apple has requested that manufacturers begin work on displays with that resolution for the iPad 3."
    "I don't believe anybody is ready to produce that resolution in volumes at this point. And Apple is going to require huge volumes for the iPad 2," he added.
    With all the fuss and buzz over a retina display iPad, there are tons of factors that have to be taken in, especially compatibility with current apps and the transition that would have to occur in order to maintain a good reason for getting an Retina display iPad.

    For now, it looks like nothing new until the iPad 3. Keep your eyes peeled tho, as nothing is for sure just yet. It is understood that the iPad 2 might feature a dual-core graphics chip capable of playing 1080p HD videos, including the ability to have a high-resolution Retina display, so you never really know until its official.

    Um, doesn't the iPad already have better graphics than the iPhone 4 which has Retina display? If Retina Display isn't a big fancy word for good graphics, then what is it?

    Pretty sure it's just a certain level of resolution for a given screen size in which the human eye can't easily see individual pixels.

    "Retina Display" is nothing more than a buzz word for a display with a high number pixels per inch. The iPhone 4 has a higher number of pixels per inch than the iPad. It doesn't relate to the quality of graphics, but isn't it the iPhone 4 that has the better graphics and CPU?

    The iPhone 4 has the exact same A4 chip; The CPU is not in any way "Better". They're the same.

    Agreed. Text on the iPad looks sub-par since getting the ip4

    I don't think they are going to up the res. a lil now. I think it's all or nothing, like with the iPhone.
    But they really should make it retina.
    The iPad screen was great before I got an iPhone 4. Now it just doesn't seem sharp enough whenever I wanna read something.

    Ah yes you're right. I forgot the iPad had the A4 too.

    Who cares about iPad 3 when iPad 2 is not even out yet. Why are we writing about Rumors for a product that won't hit our market until 2012. Modmyi not what it used to be. You just seem redundant or way behind in the news. Lol I remember the good o days of modmyiphone.com

    Ok so are we going to get a Retina Display or no?? Because there was an article like a week ago or so that said that it wouldn't make sense. Arrgh all the apple rumors . I wonder if there's going to be rumors about a "White iPad" or a "White iPod touch" soon enough

    I say it's either NOW or LATER. I do not think that there will be an in-between "slightly bumped" res and then later a retina display. Developers would have to make 3 different applications to fir the resolution of the specific iPad Generation. Then some apps will look bad and others won't....uggh ...confusion. Give me the "retina display" or "higher resolution" NOW or LATER and when it happens don't change it for a very long time
    God Bless
