The New iPad

I got the new iPad last week. I was waiting to get this device mainly to test my apps on it, due its huge resolution.

I wonder if they understand what’s the meaning of a tablet and mainly all mobile devices. The screen is the device!. The new iPad resolution is a beauty to read on, the quality and definition is far beyond of any monitor I’ve seen before. For photography it’s one of the best screens to appreciate colors, contrast and details. The screen is one of the most important things on a tablet. It even surpasses common desktops and HDTV. This really improves the user experience.
