A big ipod touch?

Though I was reading even more rumors of the retina display late last week (I believe it was Samsung who had developed a 300 dpi screen for tablets recently), I was really skeptical of it appearing any earlier than 2012. And at what cost? As you say, the RAM required along with the increased processing power necessary to drive a screen of that size would seem to be quite an achievement even for Apple to pull off this year. But, at the same time, I also thought that if they were able to do it with the iPhone and the iTouch (not comparable?) then... well maybe it is possible. Put in the screen, double the RAM, double the CPU/GPU... done! ;-)

And an iPhone minus the phone is a?.??.?? An iTouch perhaps.... :-). In all reality, with exception to size, iPad is near exactly a 3rd gen 32gb or larger iTouch. iPad2 is the same as iPhone4 minus retinal and phone.

As for the "retinal" display on the next gen iPad..... Everything I have read isn't so much dependent on ram or CPU prowess, yet the fact that a 10 hour battery mark is/was near impossible with 10 inch retinal display performance. Especially given iPad2's reduction in weight and thickness.
As others have said: if it can be done, Apple will do it (when their marketing dept/business plan allows it)..... Wouldn't want to give it all up in iPad3 when 4 and however many more revs will transpire. :-)
