New rumors have surfaced which claim that Apple’s next flagship device, iPAD 2, will not feature Retina Display – the high resolution display of iPhone 4. This claim is based by a Taiwanese analyst, based on production estimates. They claim that Apple has ordered about 4 Million iPAD 2 units to be prepared by the end of this quarter. And this production estimate far exceeds the yield rate for retina displays. Hence, making Apple revert back to standard display for iPAD 2 by default.
For the unaware, ‘Retina Display” is the ultra crisp screen first featured on iPhone 4 and was one of its main advantages over the competition. It features a pixel density of 326, even higher than what a human eye can perceive.
iPAD 2 will still be 35% thinner than its predecessor and boosts a graphics engine 3 times powerful than iPhone 4. It is also rumored to feature a front and rear camera, and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.
