ipad screen resolution The iPad sure is getting a lot of attention. If you’re pondering developing for the device, or you’re just curious in general, here are some specs on the iPad’s display:

* the 9.7″ iPad display has a screen resolution of 1024×768 pixels
* the display’s pixel density is 132 pixels per inch (ppi), slightly less than the iPhone 3GS 163ppi screen.

Remember that iPhone 4 has a higher resolution that comes closer to the iPad display, this should make moving apps between the two more fluid, and more attractive.
