    It's dependent on eyes in that if you need reading glasses then you will not likely see well enough below 4 point text for a retina display to make a difference. But assuming that I see well enough, which I do - then I will see much smaller text better on the iPad 3 than on other tablets which have half the resolution. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

    The Galaxy note S is a high PPI device which could be described as a retina display. Undoubtedly you can see the same size fonts on it as the iPad 3, but it is a 5 inch display. I was comparing tablets, and there is no contest currently with the tablets that are out there.

    I'm assuming that when you say if you need reading glasses, that they're not using them when you say that about 4 point text.

    With my glasses I see everything crystal-clear. Getting old, didn't need glasses until about three years ago, so sad

    I wasn't actually referring to your post, but uh, OK.

    That's strangely awkward, but ok..

    Once I use iBooks to read a book on new iPad, I cannot bear to read on iPad 2 any longer. Though I have believed iPad 2 is perfect for reading before.

    Scott Brodrick said, you enhanced display, you enhanced everything. I agree.

    It's starting to sound like a script for an iPad porno in here. ;)
