Rumor: iSlate/iPad Is 800×600 Screen Resolution

Apple Tablet: The Second Stage Media Booster Rocket

At that Flurry post this just showed up in the Comments:


Click = big

However … if this is true, then it’s really more of a bombshell than the leaking of the resolution. Because of the Page Source at that site:


Click = big

What? The iSlate/iPad will do Flash?! I am very skeptical of this.

Frankly, I think many people would be disappointed at a screen resolution of 800×600 on a ten-inch color screen. Wouldn’t that lower the dpi level from that of the iPhone/iPod Touch?

    960×540 is the iFrame resolution.
    It should be that. half the resolution of HD.

      I see no advantages to an 800×600 resolution and all disadvantages. Wednesday will answer everything.

        you don’t see difference between 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratio.
        how about down sampling HD content.

        It is the dpi that matters more. 200 dpi would make you forget
        about 1280×720

    I would suspect a lot of other tablets recently revealed at CES to possibly give equally vague browser info. Also, perhaps someone is testing a Kindle SDK. WHich I doubt would use flash either, although a crossword puzzle app would work with E- ink.

    iPhone screen resolution is 480-by-320-pixel resolution at 163 ppi
