iPad to Get 2048×1536 ‘Retina Display’ in Third Generation Model, says IDC Analyst

So, you know that discussion swirling around the iPad that involves the resolution? Yeah, the one you might have heard a thing or two about. Yeah, well, if you haven’t heard enough yet, IDC is now weighing in with their ‘informed’ opinion.

Basically, Tom Mainelli of IDC has been quoted as saying, “Our sources say Apple has requested that manufacturers begin work on displays with that resolution for the iPad 3.” It’s probably best to keep in mind that this is an analyst, and, when it comes to Apple, analysts don’t exactly have a great track record.

Either way, this statement seems to coincide with others who have a very accurate track record, like Jon Gruber.

So, after the initial explosion of 2048×1536 resolution rumors, it seems that many people are aligning themselves against this nothing — at least for the second generation model.
