Apple cutting off the competition. To up iPad 2 resolution to 2048 by 1536.
Sources from upstream component makers pointed out that Apple is increasing iPad 2's resolution to 2048 by 1536 and the new strategy is expected to widen the company's technology gap with its competitors.
The larger resolution should provide the company's App developers more convenience, while all future applications will be able to run under any of Apple's machines including the 27-inch iMac.
iPad 2's initial shipments are expected to be 400,000-600,000 units. Apple is estimated to have ordered 1.6-1.8 million iPads in January.
ipad 2 will launch in February.
