iPad 3 Retina rumour builds momentum (meh)

iPad 3 Retina rumour builds momentum (meh)Last week John Gruber of Daring Fireball mentioned the iPad 3’s Retina display in an oddly matter-of-fact way, but, being a fairly credible dude, his comment sent the press into a bit of a frenzy.

Now we’ve got the The Korea Times fuelling the Retina fire. Sort of.

Paraphrasing a statement made by LG Display CEO, Kwon Young-soo, The Korea Times writes: “He said more smartphone manufacturers will release new models employing LG’s “Retina Display” that has been used in iPhones and iPads.”

A multitude of sites have taken that to mean that the iPad 3 (or iPad 2 Plus or whatever) will definitely have a Retina display. However, the use of the past tense makes us wonder if the author mistakenly believes that the iPad 2 already does so.

More interesting, I thought, were Kwon Young-soo's comments about Samsung’s OLED display technology. Get this: “Samsung is misleading the market because OLED displays are not suitable in terms of picture quality, response time, energy consumption and contrast ratios for smartphones and tablets.” Fight! Fight! Fight!
