Still some speculation iPad follow-up may be delayed until June

According to a Reuters source, the Apple iPad 2 is expected to launch March 2, despite speculation that the release of the tablet may be delayed to June.

A source told Reuters that Apple is planning a release schedule similar to the first iPad, which went on sale April 2010. Apple is slated to host an event March 2, where another source says the company will unveil the new iteration of the popular tablet.

But, according to a Yuanta Securities note, the next version would come out two months later than the original iPad because component makers were forced to alter their production processes after Apple made changes to the design

In other tablet news, it appears that Verizon will be charging new Motorola Xoom and Galaxy Tab users their first month's data charges at activation. This policy will of course have no effect on Wi-Fi-only models.

Actually, as viewing distance gets closer, higher resolution makes more of a difference. My 15" 1080p laptop *seems* higher res to me than my big TV on the other side of the room. A 1080p iPad would be good if you're holding it in your lap on a plane.

However, I know of no manufacturer anywhere close to 1080p resolution at 10". True 720p compliance is difficult at that res, let alone anything higher res. The laws of manufacturing (shrinking pixel-size) being what they are, we're probably 12-24 months away from 1080p @ 10 inch.

Dunno about 10", but it's been done at 4.8". I have no idea why you'd want 1080p in 4.8" - you'd probably need a magnifying glass just to appreciate all the pixels. But it's been done.
