Next iPad is getting a boost in display resolution, according to latest rumors
Rumors – they just keep on coming, don't they? This time, a speculation about the next iPad iteration has surfaced on the web and it is supposed to come from a source pretty close to Apple itself. It is said that Cupertino is already testing 9.7-inch LCD displays made by Samsung and LG, which are intended for use in the iPad 3 (or iPad 2 Plus, as it might also be named).

However, the more interesting thing is that the said display panels boast the impressive resolution of 2048 by 1536 pixels and clock in at exactly 264 ppi. This actually isn't the first time we hear rumors about the iPad 2's successor getting a boost in screen resolution as a peak into the iOS 5 beta SDK revealed clues pointing at the exact same pixel count. Besides that, we know that both Samsung and LG are capable of producing displays with such pixel density, so this rumor might really be onto something.

Would you like an iPad with such a high-resolution? Share your thoughts with us by dropping a comment below!

Thanks, Mattia!

No, I would rather have a new ipad with lower resolution. And since you're asking, can you please also downgrade CPU and RAM, lol! Of course any improvement is welcomed phonearena or was your question rhetorical?

What they should do is replace the flea market quality front and rear cameras.
