Led by iPad HD’s Retina display, this year’s mobile screens will stun and amaze

“With every mobile product able to do everything, how do new gadgets stand apart from the crowd?” Mike Elgan reports for Computerworld. “This year, the answer is becoming clear: Display design and technology that will absolutely blow your mind.”
“Rumors and circumstantial evidence suggest that the upcoming iPad, which Apple is expected to announce on Wednesday, will have twice the screen resolution as the current iPad,” Elgan reports. “Remember that twice the resolution means four times the pixels. The iPad 2 has a 1024-by-768-pixel screen resolution, which adds up to 132 pixels per inch (ppi). Although the screen is expected to be the same size, just one quarter of a double-resolution 2048×1536 screen (264 ppi) will contain the same number of pixels as the entire iPad 2 screen. The new iPad screen will probably look as good as a glossy print magazine.”

Elgan reports, “This week, circumstantial evidence emerged that the name of this new tablet will be the ‘iPad HD,’ as in high definition… Adding ‘HD’ to the name makes perfect sense. It would line up with rumors about the addition of both a high-quality HD camera — probably the same excellent camera as the one in the iPhone 4s — and the high-resolution display.”
