Comparing the Retina display on the new Apple iPad with other screens

Lukas Mathis, a UI designer, wanted to see what the new Apple iPad's Retina display really looked like, so he put it under a microscope and made some comparisons to the Apple iPad 2 and other devices; a number of comparisons have been made and you can see how small the pixels look on the new tablet...

And thats were you are wrong... Apple pays for a service and very well so other companies dont reproduce the product.. Samsung failed and released similar products.. and Apple sued them.. use common sense... how can someone copies and sue the other person.. btw Apple is winning vs Samsung... so anything else you want to point out...

faster processor? that's because it has four freaking times the pixels over the old iPads, that's why you need the 4x increase in GPU! it's like a 200ml cup, you need 5 of them if now you have 1 litre of water don't you?

4 times the pixels makes 260ppi, not much difference from the 220ppi of the FullHD in android tablet, your eyes can't see the difference most of the times.. not really a major upgrade.. i was expecting a REAL RETINA with 300ppi and above.. and for F's sake, if you are talking about viewing distance, then my 250ppi phone can be considered to be having Retina Display.. and viewing distance differs from person to person.. the only constant here is ppi, and that's the only thing that people use as convention for Retina.. at least until apple introduced the 250ppi "RETINA" then they start adding up viewing distance to cover up their asses..

LTE - Yeah, that's probably it..

battery, that's not upgrade, you need to know that the old iPad has the same usage rate.. and to have an upgrade means it has to be better than the previous one.. if you tell me 12 hours, then yes that's an upgrade, but still not a MAJOR one, as the increment is only 3 hours than the previous one.. if you give me 20 hours, then that's MAJOR upgrade..

the fact that the iPads are not sold out this time is because at last people understand that these are not MAJOR upgrade, but minor upgrades that are not really essential..

it's just iPad 2 with LTE and sharper screen, with improved GPU and battery to accommodate those new add-ons..

I would have liked to see more images of Android tablets. It looks like only the Tablet S is there and that's it. I would have liked to see the Galaxy Tab and Transformer Prime.
