The rise of the Tablet has only just begun. In the past much of the technology used in the tablets was cannibalized from PC and Mobile Phone parts bins. The iPad 2 signaled the change, new designs and technology developed specifically for tablets. The iPads Retina display is a very nice panel – high colour IPS panel – but it has some serious limitations, low resolution with only 132dpi – dots per inch – the iPad 2 is a standard resolution display when compared to a standard desktop monitor. Most desktop monitors available today have a of between 72 and 96 dpi, most will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and sizes between 20 and 24″. The Samsung displays 300 dpi is off the charts for a 10″ panel. The iPhone 4’s display is manufactured by LG with a resolution of 326dpi – 960 x 640 at 3.5″ in size -but that is much smaller than a tablet panel.
