iPad HD Rumors
If you haven't heard already, there's this rumor going around about a so-called higher-end iPad HD with a 9.7-inch 2,048x1,536-pixel resolution display that's coming this fall and will be geared toward "pro" users. This Is My Next started the iPad HD rumors, citing an anonymous source, and then Taiwan's DigiTimes mentioned something recently about Apple launching an iPad HD this fall, and the rumor mill belched again.
iPad HD Rumors: Size
It's also worth noting that the name iPad HD just doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I could see Apple going with "iPad Pro" but in the near future (maybe as soon as the iPad 3 in March) the "standard" iPad will have a display with "HD" resolution and lots of pixel density, so the HD part of the name will soon become superfluous.
iPad HD Rumors: Screen
Maybe. LG, the company behind a lot of Apple's displays, is said to be prepping an "ultra" high-resolution 9.7-inch display that offers "1.5 to 2 times the resolution of typical LCD panels." Samsung also has a more power-efficient 10.1-inch wide-screen 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution display at 300 pixels per inch in the works. It's unclear how much such a display would add to the cost of producing an iPad, but it would probably be significant.
iPad HD Rumors: What kind of chip would be required to drive?
Well, a lot of folks are saying that Apple's A5 chip, which powers the iPad 2 along with the integrated PowerVR SGX 543MP2 GPU, wouldn't cut it for 2,048x1,536 pixels, which is actually 4x the resolution of the current display. That may or may not be true, but Apple would certainly have to deal with battery-life challenges. As it stands, my iPad 2's battery life is noticeably shorter than my original iPad's.
