The screen resolution is 1,280x800 pixels and the tablet uses an IPS panel so viewing angles at least weren't a problem.

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.
