iPad 3 Retina Display Rumours & Release dates? A few rumours came to a head this morning on the grapevine(s)… it seems that everybody is talking once more about the possibility of the iPad 3 retina display and the release date of the iPad 3. Daring Fireball‘s John Gruber has made note of the possibility on his website, suggesting that the new resolution would be something like 2048 × 1536.
How would this affect magazines and newspapers already optimised for a a static 1024 × 768 image as they are currently? Not sure, but they might not look too good, but I guess publishers will get on that pretty fast. He also mentions that the size of current digital magazines needs to change, with some magazines being 150mb each, and downloaded as individual static image pages.
Gruber has been known for getting early release information and facts pretty correct in the past, so he must have a good source for it! Regarding release dates it has been hinted that it might be early 2012, as there doesn’t seem to be any chance it will be in the last part of this year with the new iPhone 4 on the horizon.
Either way, you’ll still be able to enjoy all your favourite iPad magazines from here, and they will all keep working don’t you worry!
