For the people who gripe there is no retina display on the iPad
Maybe this will prove to you that, once and for all, a retina display on the iPad isn't really necessary:

I checked the above reference, and indeed at a glance more pixel gives more detail ... more true for still versus video.
However, when is good enough, really good enough ... with advance graphical processes, texturing, shaders, etc if you can't see the pixels the picture is really, really good in appearance. Watch what happens when the gamer apps start to show up.
Bottom line ... iPAD display is really good ... the higher performance processor and graphic unit in iPAD2 is like turbo boost ... Texturing and filtering makes for extra clarity in detail. The new engine in iPAD2 is breakthrough performance... all at the same price and battery performance ... the graphical processor unit is the best on any tablet by any manufacturer ... it caught the competition by surprise wow :)
I hope I made my point ... the display maybe the same but the engine that drives it is a whole lot better .... Retina it is only more costly, has only been developed for small displays (poor volume availability) ... and drops the performance. It just won't happen, because it isn't necessary. IMO
