The Venue 8 features a 1,280x800-pixel resolution screen, which isn't particularly high or impressive compared with what's out there, but HD video still looked clear and sharp.

Despite not seeing a boost in resolution, the iPad 2's display is still the best we've seen on a tablet with bright and vivid colours, impressive black levels (making videos look that much better), and of course all important superb viewing angles.

1280 x 800
iPad Air
1024 x 768
Although the new iPad's iPhone 4S-esque 2048 x 1536p resolution, 264 pixels per inch Retina Display is in a league of its own when it comes to tablet screens, the 1024 x 768p 132 PPI multi-touch offering that lines up on the iPad 2 is of a more than acceptable standard that has been overshadowed by the unparalleled image quality available through its replacement.
