Purported Next-Gen iPad Display Caught And Examined; 2048�1536 Resolution Confirmed
MacRumors has done something very bad - they went and got themselves an iPad 3 display module. Actually, it's not so bad when you can apparently just order one online. Normally this part even being online and available ahead of launch would suggest it was a scam, but what matters isn't the name of the part (could easily be a scam) but the part itself. They took a microscope to it, see — and it appears to have exactly four times the pixels of an ordinary iPad screen. It's really just the latest in a long line of "confirmations," but it's nice nevertheless to see the thing itself.
