iFixit received the purported iPad 3 LCD screen for testing with the iPad 2. While they found out that the iPad 3 LCD screen will not work because of a mismatched internals, a look at the unpowered display under a microscope revealed the iPad 3 will have quadruple the number of pixels as the iPad 2, for double the resolution. The iPad 2 has 783,432 pixels, which means that the iPad 3 will have 3,145,728 pixels. So what does that mean? That means that the iPad 3 will have an approximate 260 pixel-per-inch count and will most likely be marketed as a Retina Display by Apple.
iPad 3 rumors are everywhere, especially since the alleged release of the tablet is less than two weeks away (March 7). The iPad 3 should feature a faster processor, a bigger battery, a slightly bigger case, a better camera, and potentially 4G LTE support.
We’ll all find out about the highly discussed device, hopefully, sooner rather than later. But until then, make sure to keep yourself in the know by reading what we know so far about the iPad 3, the case, and its debug photos that show the possible quad-core processor.
