It's just an impressive feat for a tablet. That's 1 million more pixels than a 1080p HD TV. When they say more pixels than any device, that includes TVs, monitors, and such too, not just other tablets. It will be the sharpest most accurate display available.

I'll be interested to see it in person...

I guess that's my point. My 40" 720p HDTV looks great to me, so the idea of having that kind of resolution on a 10" tablet just seems pointless. It's an accomplishment for sure, but does it really matter?

Sure it matters. The clarity is obvious when side by side, like the image posted above. For things like maps, X-rays, technical drawings and such, the ability to zoom in indefinitely without losing quality can be very useful. It provides a huge increase is contrast and clarity. Color depth is greatly improved. Viewing angle is increased considerably. It also improves the accuracy of where you're tapping on the screen.

It also makes things much easier for developers. They can create vector-based apps that can be stretched or shrunk or rotated to fit any iOS device or screen with absolutely no difference in quality. So developers can create a single app that will look perfect regardless of screen size or device type.

Android's method for handling this situation is ridiculously more complex and requires much more work: http://developer.android.com/guide/p...s_support.html

The bigger news is the $100 price drop on iPad2....$399 probably seals their fate to be dominated by some yet unseen Android device.

Only $100? Even the old crap remains overpriced.

$399 for an iPad2 is a great value. People were selling used for more than that...
