Even though I banged the drum for this for ages, the increasing rumors this year made me pull back from believing. I needed to see a leak like this first:
We were provided with information contradictory to current rumors. Instead of being the rumored 7.85 inches diagnostically, the display will take on a 7.58 inch form factor.
A 7.58″ screen at 1024×768 = 168.87 ppi (see here).
That is Good Enough. The NookColor/Nook Tablet have screens of 169 ppi. And they are very sharp.
Add into that ppi mix the eye-popping colors Apple’s screens are known for, and this is All Win.
Now I Believe!
