DISCUSSION

I'm beginning to think Apple may have many surprises at this event. Think about it:

- There's a huge amount of competition launching this year (Honeycomb, Playbook, Palm, etc.)

- Apple made a very bold move with the subscription pricing. They need the awesome hardware to give them enough backing to do that, so they can tell the publishers "see, we're still on top, even with the competition, so you definitely want to publish on our devices"

- The invite above implies 2011 will be the "year of the iPad". Well, that would take some big leaps forward to make this year different than last.

Now I'm still leaning away from a Retina Display simply because of the technical hurdles, but that would be the greatest way for them to "kick things up a notch". And recent rumors of parts supply chain production difficulties make me wonder if they DID actually take the leap forward with a retina display. It would certainly explain the difficulties with parts production.

I can tell you this: if the iPad 2 does have a retina display, I'm SO getting one!
