New iPad Sharper Than The iPad 2

The DisplayMate's comprehensive report on the new iPad reveals many details about the "resolutionary" display. The highlights of the report are that Apple managed to address some of the weak points of the second-generation iPad, such as sharpness and colour saturation.

After dozens of tests and thorough investigations, the DisplayMate team states that "the new iPad's picture quality, color accuracy, and gray scale are not only much better than any other Tablet or Smartphone, it's also much better than most HDTVs, laptops, and monitors. In fact, with some minor calibration tweaks, the new iPad would qualify as a studio reference monitor."

When it comes to the display sharpness, DisplayMate points out that Apple officials did not embellish the truth, at the new iPad launch event.

The display is "impressively razor sharp," much more improved compared to the earlier versions. Colour saturation and colour accuracy are also two of the strengths of the new display, according to Dr. Raymond Soneira is President of DisplayMate Technologies Corporation of Amherst. "The new iPad has a virtually perfect 99 % of the Standard Color Gamut, (which is) a 38 percent improvement over the iPad 2."
