NYT Report Claims iPad 3 Screen is Truly Amazing
The New York Times published their own report on Apple rumored iPad 3 announcement next month with a simple claim from “an Apple employee.”
The iPad 3 screen is “truly amazing.”
While the iPad being tested inside Cupertino is “essentially the same size and shape as the iPad 2,” the improved screen and faster processor will apparently be the selling points. The New York Times did not identify their source because “Apple is not fond of leaks.” Understatement of the year.
The improved-innards strategy appears to be the Apple game plan for iDevices this year. The Times was unable to confirm if Apple is actually going to call the new iPad the iPad 3, or release and iPad 2S to the same storm of criticism the iPhone 4S experienced during its launch. Leaks of the iPad 3 rear housing yesterday seem to support the Apple employees claims.
Whatever Apple decides to call the device chances are the next iPad will sell gazillions of copies adding to the iPad's current worldwide total of 55 million units.

I will likely spring for this improved resolution screen. It's really what has kept me from getting a tablet. It doesn't seem to make much sense to buy something made specifically for media consumption WITHOUT an HD resolution. That said, I still find these machines to be overpriced, but hey, I have spent enough on games/apps so I can enjoy those on a bigger screen too. I had to give in at some point. :/

I just love how much assumptions we are already making about the iPad 3...
Thanks but I'll wait for Apple to release it before making judgements because I heard from a friend of a friend it's going to have a 10ghz quad dual core processors and going to be powered by a micro nuclear reactor and his friends friend said its going to be a holographic display (not 3d) but holographic so it will just project in mid air as you lay it on your coffee table.

For those who already own an iPad...
First question you should ask yourself is how long has the iPhone4 been out?
How many apps that supports retina display?
Do you really want to rush out to buy a retina display iPad when it is not fully supported until maybe 2013?
Until there is some addition to this iPad3 that is totally revolutionary and totally different from iPad2, I see absolutely no need to buy this. I seem to recall a reporter saw the iPad3 at the CES said he was not impressed, so I would assume nothing new except faster and improved display.

Are there any other words we can use.. i feel as if "amazing", "awesome","perfect", and even "simple" are over used way to much now. I don't know but i'm just saying.

Also it's rather easy to make an application retina display compatible - it shouldn't cause developers to delay the update that much.

Why would Apple need to do this now if everyone is making retina display apps on iPhone 4?
Considering all the iPad 1 and iPad 2 out there, why would they make retina display iPad 3 when it is easier to make regular display and make more money from them?
Absolutely no need to get iPad 3 for at least a year, even after 1 year I don't believe that many retina display iPad3 specific games out there.

Put it this way, I won't be getting an iPad 3 if it does not have a better display. It does everything I want now except for crappy graphics when reading web pages. I'm spoiled by the iP4's display. It's Apple's own fault for making such a beautiful display on the iP4 but not on anything else.
And that nonsense about no software support is just ignorance. The reason why iPhone 4 have "double resolution" ( yes, I know it's actually 4 times the pixels), is so it is backwards compatible with old applications.
And when there are great demand for retina iPad apps (which there will), developers will simply "edit" their apps to support it so they can make money! They're stupid not to.

Seriously- every day sites are reconfiguring their websites to do away with flash- it's a power/cycle/bandwidth pig. There are so many other valid things to consider- flash shouldn't even be part of the process.
Just my 2 cents.
