I just got back from the Verizon store comparing the iPad 3 to the 2. They guy brought a 2 so I could compare. To be honest, with the exception of text, I did NOT see that much of a difference...and this is a SIDE BY SIDE comparison! Text did look a bit better..but the 2 still is NOT bad on the eyes. But videos & apps (games) weren't that much better. I do understand that the developers haven't created apps to utilize the new screen yet...but by time there are a lot of "retna apps" on the market we'll be talking about the iPad 4!!
