Shouldn't the Android Edition be 1000x1666 (or thereabouts)?

I appreciate your foresight in provisioning for the future. I bought an iPad 3 (my first tablet) primarily to view LensWork and it looks great, as do my own images scaled (exactly) to the 2048x1536 display. I have in mind making some PDFs of my own ...

Ultimately Apple has given us a new model that won’t feel any faster, but will be far more visually appealing to use, and sets the stage for what I feel will be the real performance increase next year.

There will be nothing at the iPad 3 release date from the Android camp that will match this tablet, and until that happens, if you need a tablet, while I still have my reserves, this is undoubtedly the tablet to get until we hear answers from the Android camp.

That will likely be in the form of the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity, but with an availability date still unknown, the iPad 3 will get to enjoy this leap to market for quite some time.

My colleague at the office received his new iPad on Friday and brought it in to show me today. The new display is definitely a big plus for anyone working with high quality images ... for instance, the web-rez image I have linked below is an approximately 1K x 1K pixel image and looks "ok" on a good display. Putting a 1500x1500 pixel version of the same image on the new iPad gave a very satisfying, perceptual improvement in detail and sharpness.

It's good to hear that Lenswork's iPad editions are almost up to this spec already. With my iPad 2, I'm often enlarging the photo to uncover detail resolution ... with the new iPad, I found it wasn't necessary to do so most of the time. Ah, the tireless Hamster Wheel of Progress ... ;-)

Happily, my iPad 2 is still satisfying my needs and will through most of the coming year. I'll upgrade to the new model when it becomes 18 months old, next September.

Maybe I am just paranoid, but why do we want to give our images away at such high resolutions? Most of us keep our images relatively small on our website to avoid having them easily lifted for other uses--although it happens all the time. It would be easy to create a 20 inch+ print of an image from one that would fill a 2048 pixel width and it wouldn't be bad quality, believe me, I know as I have made impeccable 20 inch square prints from my iPhone files that were 1936 pixels square.

I realize there are different thoughts about those that would steal and use images, for personal decor, but when a NYT columnist suggest doing just that to decorate your home, with the tag that it isn't copyright violation?!?, people get a sense of entitlement.

Anyway, I would seriously like to hear the counter argument to this and why one would want to give away their images in such high resolution.

Just a related note: Facebook announced that they will be providing "full screen" display of photos (up to 2048 pixels on the longest edge). This is another instance of providing an exciting on-screen viewing experience that potentially endangers copyright protections. I for one intend to continue to post only 800 pixel images to FB.

I shall begin with the caveat that I have only just bought my first lenswork magazine. That said, I definetly support using the full resolution of the new iPad. It is why I and many other bought it. I am content just to buy the unextended PDF but will buy the iPad specific version only if it uses my iPads resolution. I am sure I don't speak for everyone but I am more than happy to go for the extra download. Thanks and keep up the good work.

That server is NOT reporting your actual resolution, but the resolution that Safari is telling the server via the User Agent data that it sends.
