iPad 2 display – thinner, lighter, same resolution?

ipad claim that they have the screen that’s intended for the next generation Apple iPad. The new display is said to be over a millimetre thinner (actually more substantial than it sounds) and lighter too with a thinner bezel. This would correspond with earlier rumours that the new iPad would be thinner and have a smaller bezel.

That wasn’t the only rumour – the iPad could supposedly be going in the same direction as the iPhone 4 – a doubling of screen resolution to an insane 1536 x 2048. That would of course require a pretty monumental amount of processing power and ram, but a commenter on 9to5mac may have crushed your dreams already of a super-HD resolution 10 inch display – he used the serial number (P097X02-SLN1) and an unverifiable method to identify it as an LG Phillips 9.7-inch XGA 1024 x 768 H-IPS display.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the iPad’s screen stayed the same and instead get a 3G to 3Gs-like upgrade; but would you still buy one if it did?
