Yes considering the distance theory, i am guessing you are trying to say that the tablet will be used at a further distance away from the eyes ? even if that's the case do you think it will used at a distance greater than 1 feet? i am typing this in my mac book pro which is less than a feet away from my eyes,this is in the case of a laptop but a tablet which is primarily held in hand and used like a touch screen mobile device cannot be used at a really far away distance, so that longer distance don't make sense to me.


During his keynote speech, Jobs said the iPhone 4′s display had a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch. He claimed that this resolution exceeds the limit of the human retina, which Jobs said was 300 pixels per inch for a display about a foot away.


Soneira, who possesses a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Princeton and has been studying displays for 20 years, said it was inaccurate to measure the resolution of the eye in terms of pixels, because the eye actually has an angular resolution of 50 cycles per degree. Therefore, if we were to compare the resolution limit of the eye with pixels on a screen, we must convert angular resolution to linear resolution. After conversions are made, a more accurate “retina display” would have a pixel resolution of 477 pixels per inch at 12 inches, Soneira calculated.

Re: New iPad Announced

Well,the new ipad or rather it should have been ipad 3 is a downer for me. I own an ipad 2 and there are just 3 things in it for me .

1. Quad Core GPU
2. 5 MP camera
3. Retina display with higher resolution .

Now the things missing are : Quad Core CPU . GPU is a quad core but i guess that its two cores would be used to power up the inflated display resolution,so its back to the same two cores for apps . What good is a camera without a flash or an LED. Face-time camera still remains VGA.
Amount of space is still limited to 64gb.This would be a worthy upgrade from the first ipad or people who want to purchase their first ipad.With Steve Jobs gone,i guess the innovation ends in APPLE Inc.

Re: New iPad Announced

Actually it is worthy upgrade for people with iPad 1. Just like iPhone 4S is a worthy upgrade from 3GS & not iPhone 4.

Apple does not believe in "product lines" or purpose specific innovations btw. Their product compete with each other and the functions are duplicated and overlapped in different products. The iPad for instance duplicates several functions in the mac computers and iphone.
Retina n Super Sleek body are all marketing gimmicks and not technical specifications/standards ..
So Apple or any other brand is free to use what interpretation it sees fit... They may even call it Retina Lite

Let's not equate ppi to an IUPAC standard..

Despite having common features and capabilities..
The IPad is differentiated by its form factor and as computing technology progresses, it's the form factor which is deciding a products acceptance..

Re: New iPad Announced

So giddy.

I can hardly wait to get my hands on it.

I've waited for this day since the iPad 2 came out. (Considering that I kept the original iPad instead of buying the 2)

If you have the original iPad, the iPad 3rd Gen, is a no-brainer.

iPad 2 users have to consider if they really need it.

Re: New iPad Announced

Phil Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of World-Wide Marketing, reveals why Apple's new tablet is called 'the new iPad'.

Schiller tells the WSJ that Apple broke from its naming convention simply "because we don't want to be predictable."

Brand experts and critics are already questioning this decision but in all likelihood Apple will sell a massive amount of 'the new iPad' and those who want to distinguish it from the iPad 2 will likely call it the iPad 3.

If you had used any Android Tablet, you'd have known about iPad. And it's not about hardware at all.

In current scenario, iPad surely is miles ahead compared to other tablets. I am just waiting for Windows tablets. They have the best UI & they did not ctrl+c, ctrl+v shamelessly from iOS. Windows UI is fun & pleasure to use. And I think only they can compete with iOS.
