Apple's next generation tablet, iPad 3 is not the only one that will pack more pixels as per a research. Display Search is a market researcher and as per the research, the tablets launching in the year 2012 will all have increased pixel density.
As per the forecast, the average resolution employed in the display of the tablets will increase by to more than 200 PPI (pixels per inch) and this will happen in the second quarter of the next year. David Hsieh is an analyst of NPD Display Search and per him, the above mentioned news is confirmed. Right now the tablets make use of 150 PPI resolution only.
This transition of packing more pixels will first be employed in the iPad 3 with a display size of 9.7 inches and a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. This tablet is due to be released in the first quarter of the coming year. The iPad 3 from Apple will have an increased PPI of about 264 which is almost twice as that of iPad 2.
Richard Shim of DisplaySearch has mentioned that Apple can manage to eat all the 9.7 inch displays with high resolutions of 2048 x 1536 pixels. But the feature of pixel packing is not only for Apple as even the Android powered tablet manufacturers have started dominating the market with 10.1 inches displays that have very high resolutions like 1920 x 1200 pixels.
Currently manufacturers who design Android tablets are Asus, Acer, Motorola and Samsung. It is expected that almost all of these manufacturers will start making high resolution tablet displays as they employ faster silicon processors like the OMAP 5 from Texas Instruments ,Qualcomm Krait and Nvidia Tegra 3.
