    Wow, never saw this coming, but according to AppleInsider the new iPod Nano has a battery with twice the capacity of the shuffle and 220 PPi.... The iPad only has 132 :\ Yes, crazy stuff indeed. This means maybe the new iPad will have a really nice big retina display.... At least we hope so.

    Enjoy!!

    The iPad can't have a retina display... It would need A LOT more power to use, and I'd rather just see Mac OS on it...

    Yeah, I agree, iPad is useless without an idependant OS, and iOS is dependant of a Mac or a PC. An iPad will never be able to fully replace an Tablet, if it doesn't become independant.

    Why not a tablet that can run both OSX and iOS? Isn't iOS a subset of OSX?

    no. iOS is like Windows Mobile. IT IS NOT A COPY OF THE iMAC OPERATING SYSTEM! You are not able to operate an iPad without a Mac or PC, and thats the fact, and thats why it sucks

    An iPad will never be able to fully replace a tablet? I guess you mean computer. Anyways, I doubt we'll ever see a tablet with a desktop OS because they have generally failed in the past. Not because of the lack of hardware, but because it's a DESKTOP OS. Many people were excited for the HP Slate (which ran Windows 7), but guess what? HP cancelled the project, bought Palm and are working on a tablet with WebOS.

    ..?

    retina display just means it's got 326 pixels/inch, which on the iphone happens to be 960x640

    so a retina screen on an ipad would be something like 2048x1536
