Held off on getting another iPad 2. Punished myself for being careless. Ordered 32GB black AT&T w/ AC+ for delivery on the 16th.

Except it wouldn't be first and it wouldn't be 'retina'.
I think that is quite easy to achieve. The equation is: 3438 * (1/n) = PPI, where n is the distance in inches from the display you have to be sitting for the minimum PPI to effectively be Retina Display for someone with 20/20 vision.
Example: 52" HDTV with 1920x1080 (16:9) resolution has a PPI of 42.36. If you are sitting 6' or 72" away you get: 3438 * (1/72) = 47.75 PPI, just short of Retina Display. So that TV falls a little short. If are sitting another foot away you get: 3438 * (1/84) = 40.93 PPI, or just inside Retina Display.
I think are plenty of other factors with a display this large that come into effect that would surely allow you to perceive a much better picture at an even dense PPI even if your vision was 20/20 or wore.
Apple's never gonna make a TV. Heaven's sake!
You differentiate by creating a brand new service that kills off all older means of getting television content and pushing said service out to every television already on the market. It's not 1951, people.
I certainly don't see it but i would like to see higher resolution TVs become more mainstream.
