'And the resolution isn't "much" better. The wide screen can be useful when
playing Angry Birds Rio levels, but the actual DPI is only 149 versus 132.
132 is already fairly high, and unless I wear reading glasses and try to
look for differences, I wouldn't describe the extra 12% as being that much
better.'

Colin, resolution typically refers to the number of pixels on a screen, not
the density. The Acer Iconis has a 1280 x 800 screen, vs the iPad's 1024 x
768. That's 1,024,000 pixels vs the 786,432 of the I pad, which is
significant, and much more than 12%.

I turned both the Acer and I pad screen to their brightest levels and viewed
them side by side, and they looked about the same.
