Rumor: Apple Working on iPad 'HD' With Retina

Apple's made a pretty big deal about its Retina Display for the iPhone 4 when it launched a year ago, but its 300+ dpi (326 dpi on the iPhone 4, to be exact) technology has yet to hit anything else other than the corresponding iPod touch.

It was a little disappointing when the iPad 2 featured the same 1024x768 resolution as the original iPad, but now word is that Apple is prepping an iPad "HD" that will feature four times the resolution at 2048 x 1536.

This is My Next's source says that the iPad HD may launch this fall alongside a professional app such as Final Cut or Aperture. This iPad HD is not supposed to be the iPad 3, but rather a separate class, such as the MacBook Pro to the original MacBook.
