Will people recognize that the Nexus 10 tablet display is higher resolution than iPad's without a catchy name like "Retina"?
kreiley 1 year ago
I was reading about the new Nexus 10 tablet, and my eyes opened a little wider when I checked out the display specs: a 10" 2560x1600 PLS display with 300(!) pixels per inch. Sweet. For comparison, the iPad's Retina display is 264 pixels per inch, and it looks sweet. The thing is that it seems like people don't pay attention to facts like they do to catchy phrases. For example, a significant percentage of Americans actually believed Death Panels were real, without bothering to check for themselves or think beyond the memorable term. Will it actually matter if the display on the Nexus 10 is better than the iPad? Do average consumers even understand what pixels per inch means?
