After obtaining one of the iPad 3's displays and examining it under a microscope, the site says they have determined the resolution and the fact that the display is Retina.
The display will be the same size as the previous models, at 9.7-inches.
Says the site: "Since we only had a raw iPad 3 display with no method to power it, taking high quality photos of the pixels was difficult. Still, even with the relatively poor lighting, you can easily make out the pixels on each display (made up of red, green and blue elements). We highlighted a cluster of 4 pixels (2x2) from the iPad 2 to compare it to the same area on the iPad 3. On the iPad 3, the same cluster was occupied by 16 pixels (4x4) -- exactly twice the resolution in each direction.
Extrapolating out, the iPad 3 screen should carry a full resolution of 2048x1536, exactly twice the linear resolution of the iPad 1 and iPad 2 which is 1024x768. Such a screen should be able to display much sharper images as compared to the previous generation iPads."
The tablet is expected to be launched at media event on March 7th wit the high-end display, a quad=core A6 processor, LTE 4G support and some new iOS additions.
