If you could pick the screen resolution of the Ipad3, what would it be?
1920x1500 I think that will keep the current aspect ratio.
1920x1440 will support 1080p video. However, it may be easier for Apple to go to 2048x1536. The problem with 1920x1440 is that is harder for the current apps to be ported over to a new size unless they can rescaled easily. With a quadrupled resolution, it is supposedly a lot easier. Even so, most of the apps would have to be updated or run in some mode like the iPhone apps were done for the iPad until everyone began issueing new apps designed for the resolution.
problem is, the higher the resolution, the smaller the text etc is going to be, unless they increase the screen size, or increase the font size
if they are staying with the same screen size, then i say stay with the same resolution, i don't want to carry a magnifying glass with me also
Double resolution and double scale the OS exactly as they did with iPhone4.
4:3 @ 1280 x 960 would be just dandy for me
The usual pixal arrays for 4:3 screens are:
XGA - 1024x768
*?* - 1280x960
SXGA+ - 1400x1050
UXGA - 1600x1200
QXGA - 2048x 1536
These are the common display resolutions that would be the likely ones for Apple to go to. The cost and reliability of the more concentrated resolutions has to be weighed against the difficulties the app designers would have, and the perceived benefits.
I don't know, sometimes you get really technical about things and it kinda ruins the thread. Like the thread "why Steve jobs flash explanation doesn't make sense". It's great that you have so much knowledge to share, it just feels like overload for the topic.
This was said very respectfully and stated what you feel in a very nice way.
I am proud of you Young One.
I'd be happy with 1280 with the current ratio.
If they go to a larger screen people will want to run multiple apps on screen at once and try to emulate current desktop behaviour.
This would only destroy it's advantages of being small, light and fast.
