It's hard to wrap your head around exactly what Apple is talking about with its new Apple iPad 3.1M pixel display, which is double what you get on HDTV. "I want one," Robert Scoble, a well known industry commentator. Whether it's a true retina display, something we'll all be debating in hours to come, doesn't matter to him. "I don't care," he added. "Most people ... should wait and make a decision about whether it's worth the $900+ fee for the high end model. If you do a lot of reading an video, the answer is yes."
Here's a great infographic showing just what this new pixel density would like on current hardware - and how big they'd have to be to pack 3.1 pixels on a display. Courtesy: www.buzzfeed.com.
