Technically Speaking: Is An iPad With 2048×1536 Resolution Possible?

There have been a slew of recent rumors floating around that the iPad 2 or iPad 3 will sport Apple’s Retina Display and have a beautiful resolution of 2048 x 1536.  Which got me thinking, is that even possible to achieve on a 9.7-inch display?  So I decided to do a little math.  The current iPhone 4 which has a Retina Display has a screen resolution of 960 x 640 at 326 PPI.

If the iPhone 4’s 3.5-inch display is capable of producing such a high-resolution, then yes, it would seem logical that Apple could get a 2048 x 1536 resolution on a 9.7-inch display.  But let’s take a look at the numbers to make sure, shall we?

What Features Will The Next iPad Have?

It has been almost 5 months since the first iPad has come out and people are already wondering what the next iPad should have. Since the release of the iPhone 4, people have found some features on the phone that should be on the 2nd generation iPad. For example, people are really hoping to see a retina display on the next iPad. After using the iPhone 4 for over a month now, I couldn’t agree more. The retina display is absolutely stunning and the thought of having it on a 9.7 inch display would be even better.

That brings me to another point: screen size. People are saying that they think the next iPad should have a smaller screen. I am going to have to disagree there. After using the iPad for a little while, I don’t think I would want anything much smaller. What would be really nice is if they could somehow reduce the weight of it. Another big request is either a front facing camera, back facing camera or both. At first, I didn’t really see a need for it, but after using the iPhone 4 and its FaceTime feature, I really see an advantage to having some kind of FaceTime feature on the iPad.

I Want A Retina Display Monitor

After approximately a week with my iPhone 4 I have truly come to love the Retina Display.  It is such a fantastic display.  As I pointed out in my iPhone 4 review, everything is much crisper, sharper, and just flat out better looking then any previous iPhone or phone I have ever used.  Now, I currently use an Apple 30″ Cinema Display with my Mac Pro and I love it.  However, since getting the iPhone 4, I can’t help but notice the difference when going between the Cinema display and the Retina display.

The smaller Retina display looks so much better then the Cinema display, especially when it comes to text and graphics.  The iPhone 4 displays 326 pixels per inch on a 3.5 inch display at a 960 x 640 screen resolution.  Imagine the possibilities.  Screen resolutions on a 20, 24, 30 inch monitor.  It would be insane (and would look great).  Even being able to build the technology into smaller displays such as 13″ – 17″ on the Macbook Pro line would be awesome.
