An unknown ASUS Eee Pad has recently shown up at the GFX Benchmark site with a bullish nickname of Taurus; including on-screen buttons, resolution on the 10 inch screen is 2560 x 1600 which brings the pixel density count to a Retina display topping 299ppi. This beats the 264ppi count for the 9.7 inch glass on the fourth generation of the Apple iPad. Under the hood will be a quad-core 1.9GHz Tegra 4 CPU...

This is the exception and will hopefully stop Samsung, Sony, LG, etc from overpricing them.

Retina display is just term used by Apple not screen tech like LCD, AMOLED, IPS or Quantum Dot display.

4k media is still too sparse. Especially since no hard copy 4k media exists yet. Companies are still trying to juice bluray.

Main reason: Bandwidth.

Until a large portion of the US is on fiber optics its not very practical to stream 4k.

Where in that CRT to 720p/1080p transition era again except this time its 1080p to 4k.
