    Don't mean to be picky but, as I am sure you know, there are actually (at least?) two versions of iPad 2. So which one are you using for comparison? Which tests did you run to objectively compare the battery performance?

    This is a bigger deal than most people (even here) give Apple credit for. Those who are dissing Apple for the lack of innovation are failing to see how Apple is (once again) dragging the industry forward. Other smartphone manufacturers have been forced to match the Retina Display. Websites are (gradually) upgrading to be compatible, not to mention apps, etc.

    Yes, they deserve a lot of credit for it. It's funny how quickly things just become the norm and people forget that it was actually somebody's effort that made it happen. They even invested their own money in partner manufacturing capabilities to enable them to make the higher res screens, so they made it happen in a very real physical sense, not case in an intellectual/design sense.

    I don't think any of us get offended by "fanboy", but it's often a bannable offense because it tells us you're not really here for a discussion. Most members with less than 10 posts are clearly here to troll if they call anyone fanboys. I don't understand cameronj's meltdown, but I'm locking his account in case someone else has control of it.

    I had the first iPad 2. And no I didn't run any tests to "objectively compare" performance.  I'm using my iPad 3 the same way I used iPad 2 and the only difference I notice is it takes a bit longer to charge.

    I forgot about that. But there are plenty of possible permutations given components inside could have been made by multiple suppliers.

    Good point. They are going to drag everbody's video equipment forward also. High pixel density shows the flaws in the image, as well as the good when you get it.

    The other big deal, if it happens, is that the iPad mini will have the first DITO IGZO HPD (High Pixel Density) screen. The DITO will bring the pixels closer to the glass, the IGZO will (maybe) make the moving images more responsive and vibrant, and the HPD will be made more obvious by the first two. We're going to need a new name or acronym for this new kind of screen.

    Done and done. Left the e-mail, though, so we have it for reference. You'll be back. You can't resist. They never can.


     


    Don't worry; you won't get subscription e-mails or anything.

    Yup.  There is zero pressure on Apple to release a Retina iPad mini.  Zero.


    Having said that, I expect that Apple will release a Retina iPad mini sooner or later.

    Ah, yep, sorry. That's Unicode emoji, which Snow Leopard didn't have. Lion and above.

    More trolls should ban themselves. Huddler should offer a "Ban Self" button.

    Not possible all, even for display ability only? I also cannot display my Bengali friends facebook status, at least on windows it took 5 sec to fix this kind of issue...
