Even now, the 9.7-inch Retina display on the iPad 4 is a marvelous thing to behold – mainly because it’s super detailed thanks to its 2048 x 1536 resolution, which puts up an admirable pixel density of 264 ppi.

Armed with a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, we have to admit, the iPad 4 produces some pleasant photos that are worth saving for the memories.

You can imagine that a device designed for internet browsing is only going to be improved hugely with the addition of a high resolution Retina Display - and you'd be pretty much bang on the money.
