New iPad has incredible screen

All the reviews are correct: the new iPad has the best screen you can imagine on a mobile device.

I am typing this right now on my new iPad, and I must say, Lottery Post has never looked better.

On any tablet, web pages get shrunk down to a screen typically between 9 and 10 inches in size. When text gets shrunk down like that on a tablet screen, the low resolutions of tablet screens makes the text seem fuzzy and not very legible.

But on the new iPad screen, it has such high resolution that the text when shrunk down remains razor sharp -- and I mean razor sharp.  It's like you put on a pair of glasses, and suddenly everything is clear.

Animations on the device also seem smoother than the iPad 2 (also because of the high resolution), but they are a hair slower.  Probably because it requires a lot more processor power to move all those pixels.

Anyone who is very accustomed to an iPad 2 will notice that the new one is ever so slightly heavier and thicker than the old one, but everyone else probably wouldn't notice the difference.

Apple has once again set the bar very high, and every other company will get very tired trying to catch up.


  • i wish u guys would make it so my rimm playbook would be able to get the full site instead of just the mobile site. perhaps I'm doing something wrong. I enjoy the site. also don't count out the playbook very nice for only 199.00 compared t0......:)

  • It should be working on the main site, but I don't have one of those to test with. Can you send me a browser report using the device? Go to Lottery Post on the device, and then click the Go To Main Site link. Once there, go to, and then click the Send to Administrator button, followed by OK/Send. Thanks!

  • @billbo45: I figured out why the PlayBook is not working correctly with the results pages, and the fix will be implemented soon (with the next site update). I've also got a PlayBook on order so I can properly test it in the future.

    My tablet collection is growing quite large. Unfortunately, to properly test tablets, you have to physically test each tablet. Testing in a simulator or by forcing user agent strings into a desktop browser doesn't reveal all the quirks of each tablet. Who said running a Web site was cheap??
