iPad 3 Rumor Leaks

This is one more reason why you should buy an ipod dock – and that is because of rumors coming from the Mac community that the new iPad 3 will indeed have higher resolution than that of the iPad 2.

MacRumors has somehow obtained one of the OEM LCD screen displays supposedly used in the production of the upcoming iteration of Apple’s bestselling tablet. Although the display couldn’t be powered on, a close examination through a microscope and a side-by-side comparison with an iPad 2 display confirmed what many speculators have long agreed upon regarding the iPad 3′s resolution.

The new display showed visible clusters of 4×4 pixels, as opposed to the groupings of 2×2 pixels found on the iPad 2. This finding amounts to a linear resolution of 2048×1536, twice the 1024×768 resolution of both the iPad 1 and iPad 2.

This also qualifies the iPad 3 for the Retina display designation, which Apple reserves for screen densities that render the individual pixels invisible from a normal viewing distance, e.g. the iPhone 4’s display. And for developers, this means having to double the resolution of the graphics of their iPad apps, pronto.

The iPad 3 is also rumored to have a high-speed A6 processor, with the cellular-enabled models said to support LTE technology. With its Retina display now all but confirmed, are you still on the fence about getting an iPad 3? Or are you already preparing to camp outside an Apple Store while waiting for its release?
