The iPad 3 Is Dead, Long Live the iPad HD

By Andrew Tarantola on at

Persistent rumours about the next iPad sporting a 2048 x 1536-pixel display are looking more and more likely ahead of Wednesday's announcement. Especially now that Venture Beat is reporting that the new device will be dubbed the iPad HD.

According to unnamed sources, the next iPad will lose the conventional numbering system and instead tout the device's Retina display. With a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, the new iPad should not only be able to destroy the 720P Android competition in terms of video quality, but also offer full 1080P playback on a tablet. In fact, that would make it the only tablet on the market with that feature. [Venture Beat]
