Resolution Matters

Bill Hill, creator of Cleartype:

The 3rd Generation iPad has a display resolution of 264ppi. And still retains a ten-hour battery life (9 hours with wireless on). Make no mistake. That much resolution is stunning. To see it on a mainstream device like the iPad – rather than a $13,000 exotic monitor – is truly amazing, and something I’ve been waiting more than a decade to see. … It will set a bar for future resolution that every other manufacturer of devices and PCs will have to jump.

I remember thinking, when I was buying a laptop last year, that the most common laptop resolution of 1366×768 sucked. I’m glad the iPad 3’s display is likely to give laptop manufacturers something to look forward to.
