Question Dear Apple, do you really need to fake reality?

Third generation iPad, at this point all the young and less young people in the world know it. Huge sells are guaranteed again. Do they need to fake reality to gain more appeal?

Please take a look at their main video for the web, from 3:09 to 3:43: http://www.apple.com/ipad/#video (Resolutionary...)

We see a guy enjoying the incredibily crisp images of his new beautiful iGadget, on the beach, taking phot...Wait, what?! On the beach? In reality that display would be hardly readable, it'd appear from dark as coffee to almost unusable.

(the picture is from an article where the author meant to show how actually usable is the iPad2 in outdoors, I could have linked far worse pictures than this)


Why faking reality? After some years of tablet use, the potential buyers of the iPad will be generally aware of its characteristics , they've accustomed to it. After all, there aren't many alternatives if you're after a tablet to use in outdoors: Pixel Qi displays didnt convince enough the big market, and all the other tablets just have the same handicap.

So again, of what use is this roughly faking reality? Of what use is this misleading advertising? Is that a kind of narcisism? Maybe someone at Apple thinks that iPad owners couldn't accept it for what it really is, like they slept for years, and they could suddenly get up?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Du3WfTYPVA
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3L28eA5n5fw

EDIT 02/17/12
will add vids of the new ipad in outdoors:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaqEE8zsC_o (skip to 3:30)

a late winter sun in Germany kisses ipad 2 and 3

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCLUD85fxfM
Another outdoor visibility test from Germany (skip to 0:55)

Result:
New ipad's readability in outdoors seems exaclty the same of the previous iPad2. Unreadable with direct sunlight, from very dark to dark screen in the shade.

That photo and article doesn't count at all. In fact, it's 100% meaningless.

We are not talking about the iPad or iPad 2. We are talking the iPad 3. Unless you have pictures of the iPad 3 outdoors in the sun, don't bother.

That is the ipad 2. So you think the new iPad will look as in the spot, perfectly able to work in bright light conditions? Really?

To be honest, I don't know. So unless you know, don't go saying Apple lied. That's slander.

Lol. Who cares. I'd never take any gadget to the beach. Only I am considering for an upcoming cruise, I bought a waterproof case for my kindle touch. Not that I'll be in the ater with it. Just to protect it from any droplets or sand particles.

Anyway, join that guy suing apple for Siri.

Apple do not fake reality; they distort it.

Fandom. Fandom everywhere.

Probably the 'narcissism' hypotesis is the right one.

Do you really think that increasing the resolution will improve or reduce the glare?

The New iPad will have same glare issues outdoor than 1st one. Is still an LCD screen.

This is NOT an iPhone screen.

An iPhone is not an iPad 3. An iPad 2 is not an iPad 3. So please, drop this until you have proof that an iPad 3 screen doesn't work well outdoors.

It doesn't matter what I think. It doesn't matter what you think. It matters what is. And we don't know what is until there is proof one way or the other and for now, there is no proof. Nobody has yet gotten an iPad 3.
