Real Racing 2 HD for iPad Retina DisplayApple’s new iPad with its retina display is, er, well… um… “resolutionary.” But don’t take my word for it. Take industry tech review tycoon Walt Mossberg’s word for it… “It has the most spectacular display I have ever seen in a mobile device.” So now that we all know how great it is, here’s the Top 10 Must-Have iPad Retina Display Apps 2012 that shine.

This wouldn’t be a legit list if we didn’t include Infinity Blade II ($6.99). C’mon, the game has more awards than users. The God King has been defeated, an unlikely hero has emerged and now you must discover the truth behind the secrets of the Infinity Blade. The continuing journey of young Siris unfolds as you delve deeper into the world of the Deathless tyrants and their legion of Titans. Basically, slay the crap out of some bad guys.

Optimized for the new iPad, Solar Walk ($2.99) is quite possibly one of the most interesting apps available. Have you ever built a Solar system model? Cups, bowls, and papier-mache balls are in the past, because Solar Walk is a time-sensitive accurate information-packed interactive model of the Solar system and the Milky Way galaxy. And don’t forget your 3D glasses.

Reports are in – New iPad has Jaw-Dropping Retina Display

iPad Retina DisplayWhile there might not be a large amount of new features, the new iPad retina display is getting quite a bit of buzz. And rightly so as early reviews are glowing about how beautiful and “resolutionary” it is and how crisp text and images look on the 3.1 million pixel screen. That’s a lot of pixels.

So how did it stack up in reviews?

Well, David Phelan over at Pocketline mentions “..text which had previously seemed perfectly readable is suddenly sharper, with a crispness that rivals print. No more jagged edges on curved lines, no matter how much you squint. It’s hard to convey what a major, but also subtle, change this is. Stare at it in the right light and it looks like it could be a printed photograph, not an electronic display.”

Walt Mossberg at AllThingsD had some very nice takeaways, including ” ..its key improvements strengthen its position as the best tablet on the market.” Most poignantly, Mossberg goes onto say “It has the most spectacular display I have ever seen in a mobile device.” WOW! That’s a compliment from the tech review tycoon.

And it’s not just the magnificent retina display that is getting high praise. Macworld’s Jason Snell exclaims “And on nearly every front, the third-generation iPad is markedly better than its predecessor.”

But overall, it’s all about the display. Just ask SlashGear’s Vincent Nguyen who sums it up nicely with “The new iPad’s Retina Display does to the tablet segment what the iPhone 4′s Retina Display did to smartphones: in short, shakes it up entirely. Where the iPad 2 runs at 1024 x 768 resolution, the new iPad comes in at 2048 x 1536, meaning four times more pixels in the same 9.7-inch space. In fact, at 3.1m pixels, that’s 1m more than a Full HD television.”

So what do you think? Are you getting one?
