Sure you can. What would you like to talk about? Or we cn just make senseless posts.

Btw, my iPad 2 is shit in the sun. That's why I have my kindle. But we'll see how the iPad "3".

I'm not sure that's the case (look at the bookmark symbol), but even if it were, why does it matter, as long as it's an accurate representation of the difference? (which IMO it is)

As for the display itself, the video shows images/footage from Apple of the pad being used on the beach in bright daylight. Although the reviewer is holding one as she speaks, she is indoors. There is no review of the display in the daylight.

If it is as easily viewable as the pictures imply, it will be a big step forward. Of course I have my doubts but I will believe it when I see it, and good for Apple and users if it does.

Even if the display is easily viewable in bright daylight, e-ink displays will still have the advantages of vastly superior battery life and reduced eyestrain.

For now, I will sit on the wait-and-see side of the bench.

It is the bookmark symbol that gives it away.
On an iPad 1 the bookmark has distinct horizontal lines, not the uniform grey that the example 'screenshot' has.

You didn't address my main point though. If the comparison accurately reflects the difference, why does it matter? I believe it to be a very accurate way of representing the real difference that the user will experience, so what's the problem?

Shrug.
Do I think it is huge deal? No,
Do I think it is misleading, yes. I think it is clearly implied that these are screenshots of an iPad 2 and 3 for comparison, and they aren't.
It is, in the language of the title of the thread, a 'fake' screenshot.

Edit: It is also a little odd. They clearly have the ability to create real comparison screens, so why didn't they?

Maybe the took a queue from Verizon's iPad2 commercial. Since nobody complained about Big Red's false advertisement I guess they figured why not join them .






I think most of us know that watching any backlit screen in direct sunlight is painful and near impossible but there are many folks that don't.

Below is an iMore user's comment asking about the iPad2

Quote:
Ok, I am admittedly a complete tablet newbie and I’m considering the iPad, but I have a question about the commercial. Is the iPad really that easy to read in the sunlight at the beach? (more....)

While I don't think an LCD screen will be that clear under direct sunlight, I do believe there was some mention in the keynote that the new iPad would have wider viewing angles, higher saturation and will fare better under the sun compared to the iPad 2. How much better? We'll know on Friday.
