Default iPad 3 Will Have HD Retina Display - 10-02-2011, 10:49 PM

TrendForce is almost certain that the resolution will be doubled to 2048x1536 while remaining compatible with its software. The pixels per inch (ppi) will be 264 due to the screen size (9.7”) of the new iPad, falling short of Apple’s Retina Display standard of 300 ppi. With a resolution of 2048x1536, four pixels will be used to simulate one pixel of a lower resolution, which is the same method Apple employed when it upgraded iPhone 4’s resolution to Retina display standard. Apple iOS 5 is compatible with 2048x1536 resolution, which means that the app developers will have to write applications that support four different kinds of resolutions in the future in case they want to be compatible with all iOS-based products, including outdated iPhone gadgets.
