Evidence of New High Resolution iPad Display?

Posted August 4, 2010 at 4:11pm by iClarified
Hot on the heels of online reports (1, 2) that Apple is prepping a 7inch high resolution 'Retina' display iPad, MacStories has found some evidence of this in the iPad's file system.

It turns out, if you can access the iPad’s file system (using Open SSH or Netatalk) and open the folder, there’s a “bookmark-ribbon-iPad@2x.png” file in there. It’s well known that Retina iPhone images have @2x in the file name: in fact, the respectively iPhone images are called “bookmark-ribbon-iPhone@2x.png” and “bookmark-ribbon-iPhone.png”.

The normal bookmark image used by the iPad is 38x68px and the @2x image is 76x136px. This suggests that the next iPad could possibly feature a display with a 2048x1536 resolution.

I went through the filesystem of my iPhone 4 through SSH and in the applications folder (not AppStore) it had gamecenter there so i went in the folder and it only had 2 files, an image, one at normal and the other at 2x but i opened them and they were blank!

Wow, great news .... My over priced, under productive piece of tech is almost obsolete already!
