Apple is working on another iPad. You really don't need to hear it from me to know that. The device's guts and release timeframe remain the subject of much speculation, but a new report from The Wall Street Journal offers a little bit of info on both.
The iPad 3 will reportedly sport a 9.7-inch screen (same as the previous models) and a resolution of 2048x1536, literally doubling the 1024x768 display capabilities of the previous two models. The news is attributed to an unnamed source and Apple offered no comment, but the company has apparently received shipments of "small quantities of components" from its suppliers for a 9.7-inch device.
You probably don't need this to be spelled out, but a doubled resolution means we'll be able to look at prettier games on the tablet. The CPU and on-board memory will be critical in determining just how complex those games can be, but it certainly won't hurt to give developers twice the number of pixels to work with.
