    Went to Verizon and they had an iPad 2 next to the new one on the same display.

    Um, how does one NOT see the difference, even blind people have no excuses.

    If you look real close on the home screen you can see those pixels, or little black bars all over on the iPad 2. I was amazed that the new iPad had none whatsoever! Literally! You just can't miss it.

    Text and pictures were amazing of course.

    Everything is smooth and nice, a great device.

    I also want to say to the people who somehow can't see any difference, play fruit ninja on both devices, or even just new iPad, new iPad makes it look like pixilated fruit are jumping up and I mean PIXILATED. Screen is to good for apps right now but it's a step forward problem (don't hear that much lol)

    Can't wait until I get my own. YouTube was the same in comparison but that's probably cause of video? It was an HD video but looked great on both.

    Remember that everyone's eyes are different. Some see things that others don't. It's not about being "blind"...just a different perspective. I have the Droid Bionic & when I first got it everyone talked about the pixelation of the screen. I just couldn't see it. even when someone would point to the EXACT spot where they see it I just didn't. I think the Bionic has a beautiful screen. To reverse this, many feel the HTC Rezound has the most BEAUTIFUL screen of ANY phone...yet I feel it is WAY to saturated & unnatural.

    I have yet to see the New iPad in person so I have not been able to compare it to the iPad 2...however, just a spectacular screen (if it really IS that nice) won't be enough for me to shell out another $500 (or more since I would go 32gb this time over the 16gb) for the new one.

    I understand all that but these tablets are big, I just don't know how anyone can miss those black bars in between the pixels all over the old IPads screens.

    If one is a gamer and watch videos and movies I am sure it's a go. But if one is just using their iPads for basic use meaning surfing the net and e-mail then the iPad2 at $100 less is a go. Hey it's just money spend it.

    I have all 3 Ipad (s) and clearly the iPad 1 had a better screen than 2 and of course the 3rd generation is amazing. I quickly discovered that I enjoyed the iPad 1 better than 2. Retina display on iPad 1 and 3 are amazing.

    Unless you want all those things to be done a lot crisper and smoother of course. But I'll be doing all that so I'm excited to upgrade from my one.

    I really want to go back to Verizon and play with it for hours! It was such a buttery smooth device.
