Ya, ya, ya, but...
... how much will it COST, darling, how much will it COST?
Another analyst has claimed Apple's iPad display makers have started punching out 2048 x 1536 panels for the tablet's next incarnation. So says Richard Shim of DisplaySearch, a market watcher in an interview with Cnet. An Asian mole recently said LG, Samsung and Sharp have already shipped more than a million of the hi-res …
Yeah, and the batteries will be a b@....d
Maybe Apple will be giving away (stop! What was I thinking? that should be SELLING) shopping trolleys to lug it all around in - you never know, they might even be Apple Carts (and patented, too)
Though I have to say, if Apple did come up with an iPad with this sort of resolution (I miss my 2560 x 1920 CRT ) and a half-decent size - say 28inch - display and a keyboard/mouse then I might buy one.

I miss the super high res CRTs too. 1920 x 1080 monitors are ok, I mean, I've gotten used to them. But a 2560 x 1920 display in a decent size that doesn't cost a bloody fortune would be nice.
OCUK have got 2560x1440 27" LED IPS for £320 , which isn't a bad cost per pixel.
As for the guy wondering whining about the high res, and wondering who the target market is - I doubt I'm Apple's target market, but I very much want a high res tablet for the workbench. PDF datasheets, schematics, spreadsheets, in a handy nonpaper form - yeah! I may even choke down my loathing of iOS for that. Or wait for a proper manufacturer to play catch-up.
At the moment, I run a pair of (3840x2400 22") VP2290b's , but as a secondary display, a tablet would be nice, if only it had a useful resolution.

So another puff piece to stoke the ego of Richard Shim, that's RICHARD SHIM in case you missed it of DisplaySearch, that's DisplaySearch there. So it's basically DisplaySearch who employ Richard Shim to write articles about tech, so DisplaySearch ( who incidentally employ a guy called Richard Shim ) in case you need anyone called Richard, second name Shim, to write any articles or watch something for you.
Once more to make sure, that's RICHARD SHIM of DISPLAYSEARCH!
