    I dont think it needs the retina display either. It would just make it more expensive.

    I'm more upset they didnt bump the resolution :/

    1024x768 is fine for a ten inch screen.
    We used to have that on 14inch monitors, a few decades ago

    The iPAD has 28% more pixels than the iPhone ... even then its battery lasts 96% as much as the iPhone (as stated in the benchmark: "
    Display always On at the middle slider setting with Airplane Mode and no running applications.")

    Yes, I know it has a bigger battery and all ... but still thats impressive.

    Apparently, you didn't read the article I linked at the beginning of this thread, which debunks the whole "retina on the iPad is better" junk. I suggest you give it a read.

    With Retina display its the same like the multitasking thing, no one really got a use of it but alot of those people just wqnna have it, like an empty Safe in ur cellar.

    I never understood why people were yelling for multitasking since u can run only one app at once (optical) and the iOS always saed the last changes in every app u got. Now with multitasking i always have to manual close open apps, thats the only improvement it made for me. But still people are dumb, yelling for something but do t know which kind of use they have with it.

    And i do t believe that a retina display makes a THAT difference, but sucks more power.

    People are dumb and rarely get smarted on their own.

    Apart from the occasional video and still image the Internet is made up of low to medium resolution content for speed of downloading anyway. Zoom in on a picture on the web which is not high resolution, and what happens? Retina display or not you get pixelation, the iPad doesn't need it, perhaps when we've all got 50Mb/100Mb broadband connections in the future a higher resolution will be necessary as higher resolution content becomes widely used on the Internet, but at the moment the common denominator for internet use is low to medium resolution.

    I think SouthernGuy is right, Retina works on a small screen size because of all the zooming, I don't have a retina display so I can't make a definitive judgement on the need for it on the iPad but I myself don't believe it needs it, I believe the iPad 2 would have benefited a lot more by introducing a wide screen format to suit the trend for movie viewing on mobile devices, or am I opening a whole other can of worms?

    What you said, except delete everything from "The retina display..." to "...certain spec and."
