If they made this claim WRT the ipad 3 or 4, it's not very likely, as Apple's screens are top notch *and* no reviews I have read have suggested anything like this. It may be true wrt the Ipad 1 or 2, of course.
I've got quite a few tablets to compare.
For example Kindle Fire HD, nook HD, iPad 3 and Surface RT.
nook HD slightly outshines Fire HD, so does iPad 3 vs. Surface RT.
But, in my opinion, the differences are less than for example from DVD to Blue-Ray. If you directly compare, next to each other, the differences are obvious enough. But on its own, each is more than adequate.
Same happened to me, when switching from iPad 2 to iPad 3. I didn't see, what's so special about iPad 3, as I had been more than fine with iPad 2 already. But when comparing iPhone apps on both, it was astonishing.
Anyway...
I find Surface RT great for watching movies. Love the widescreen form factor, love the saturation (way more "natural" than Samsung units for example).
And quite frankly: I don't see the benefit of such high resolutions.
I've had a Toshiba notebook in 2002, with a (back then) spectacular resolution. Result: For office apps I simply had to switch to a lower res, text was too small to work adequately.
Resolution may be nice for games and multimedia. But do I need more than the resolution of Surface RT for business applications?
