John Gruber Rains on Our Parade - Says iPad 2 Will Have Same Resolution as iPad 1

The most exciting rumour i've heard about the upcoming iPad 2 is the possible double resolution retina display. Gruber states "its display may be improved in other ways — brighter, better power consumption, thinner, perhaps. Maybe it uses the new manufacturing technique Apple introduced with the iPhone 4 display, which brings the LCD closer to the surface of the touchscreen glass — making it look more like pixels on glass rather than pixels under glass. But my sources are pretty sure that it’s not 2048 × 1536 or any other “super high resolution”. Gruber also states that the high ram requirements would make a super high res display cost prohibitive, and he now questions the rest of the rumours found at engadget so far (dual core GPU, SD card slot, mini displayport, etc...).


  1. That sucks about the resolution, was really hoping they cranked it up

  2. Eh It's whatever. I still have the 1st gen iPad and I love it.

  3. Ya, I was really hoping for a higher resolution screen after reading all of the rumours, but at this point all of these are just RUMOURS, so we may still see a higher resolution screen!

    To be perfectly honest, having a dual core processor, dual core GPU, dual cameras, SD card slot, mini display port video out, double resolution retina display, smaller lighter design, etc... It seems way too good to be true, especially from apple. But like Lose Fat Rapidly said, the iPad 1 still works great, and most apps will continue to be made based on the iPad 1 specs.
