    hello everyone.

    One little thing i noticed when i compared my iPad 2 with my fathers old iPad was that the screen on the iPad 2 looks a bit better. Like the colors and the screen is just a bit more clear.
    I know the resolution is exactly the same, but could it be that the screen is still not the same or is it my fathers iPad which has lost picture quality over time?

    The screens are not identical, pixel-wise they are, but the brightness differs, even between iPad 2 Wifi-only and the 3G version.

    Apple buys display from multiple suppliers, so there are slight differences to be expected.

    ohh well okay.
    I read that they bought them from different suppliers, but i thought they all made them the same way.

    I've read that iPad 2 glass is thinner than iPad 1, so it might make slight difference for viewing (i.e. less diffraction).

    okay thank you.
    That is some pretty nice reading

    Yea that brings my to another topic.
    Do you know if it is another type of glass? It feels a bit harder in my opinion, i might be wrong?

    There was some talk about the iPad 2 screen using dragon glass, as supposed to gorilla glass, but as far as I could tell was it mostly rumour.

    We also had the two iPads side by side and the iPad 2 screen is dramatically different. I'll read that Anand link now, but my gut feeling is that the contrast is better and it just feels "deeper".
