Reports claim that Apple will give its customers the 2048×1536 resolution display spike they`re anxious for,and that LG and Samsung are on hands and knees to manufacture enough to supply Apple`s demand,but it`s not as easy as it seems.

According to CNET sources,It’s not a problem to produce one display,but when it comes to manufacturing volumes of those,then it isn`t such a walk in the park.

“They have production plans for 2,048×1,536 displays. Starting in November. But those are only plans at this point,” said the source, referring to LG and Samsung.

“It’s not a question of making just one. That, of course, can be done. The challenge is making lots of them,” the source said. “This is a quantum leap in pixel density. This hasn’t been done before.”

CNET`s source claim that in case Samsung and LG fail to meet Apple`s demands,Apple could use the backup option :a 1600×1200 resolution display which wouldn`t quite be the long-anticipated retina display but it would still be a boast from the current iPad 2.
However,a report by Macrumors kills that speculation:

Such a move would seem to run counter to Apple’s strategy for increasing display resolution, as it would not be a clean multiple of the current 1024 x 768 display and would thus cause issues for developers who have already produced apps for the current iPad models.

Apple could still postpone the Retina Display till the fourth generation and use the same display of the iPad 2 in the iPad 3 .though that would be a huge disappointment.
