The iPad3 Retina Display and Web Development

This article does a decent job of describing just how crazy this new display is and what it means for web images.

The iPad 3 screen remains the exact same size as previous iPads – 9.7 inches. Yet that same screen size now packs more pixels than a high-definition 50-inch TV.

Think about how clear a Blu-Ray movie is on a high-definition TV. Compress the image on that TV to the 9.7-inch screen of the iPad. Then add about 50% more pixels. That’s how crisp and sharp images are on the new iPad’s Retina screen.

*Mind blown!*
