Yet the iPad will just continue to be perceived as a flawless pinnacle of a tablet screen technology.
Because it's..well.. iPad!
Just look at the Verge review for example.
They are the epitome of the Apple paradigm effect.

Agreed. Verge review reads like Apple PR. (Its actually article form of a 5 minute Apple video that comes for every apple product).

The author of the reviewer known as big Apple fanboy and hates everything windows and android openly.

I respect these analysis, but I think the actual perceivable difference is very small. Having owned a nexus 10 and iPad 4, I honestly can't say my nexus 10 has a worse display.

Well done, you can't rig DisplayMate, who do a wonderful job testing these screens.

Was the iPad Air ever even confirmed to be using an IGZO display?

I agree with what they said about the nexus 10. Its been almost a year and I can honestly say the nexus 10 display is not that great in the color reproduction department. The colors have always been faded and washed out to me. I thought it was just lcd technology in general because it was my android first device with a lcd screen (coming from the galaxy tab 7.7) but after currently using the galaxy mega 6.3 and owning a s4 active (for a short period of time) which has very vibrant and punchy amoled like colors I saw that wasn't true. The nexus 10 has a great display but with better calibration the color reproduction could've been better.
