Sometime last week, we brought you word that manufacturers find it quite the challenge to deliver a high resolution display for the iPad 3, as Apple’s standards for their Retina Display is easier said than done – especially when you are talking about tablet-sized versions. Well, good news for those manufacturers as it does not seem as though that will be happening anytime soon, since applying Moore’s theory that a chip or display will double its transistor count (and in the process, power or resolution) every 18 months, it will take some time before a Retina Display for the iPad can be achieved. Perhaps with the iPad 4, that will happen?
To put it in a nutshell, while it is still possible to do so for the iPad 3, the cost would definitely make it impractical for consumers to actually purchase a Retina Display equipped iPad 3, or any other 10″ tablet for that matter. So there’s that – forget about the iPad 3 having high resolution, but I am quite sure that such a piece of news would not stop anyone from picking up an iPad 3 when it rolls out.
