iPad tablet is currently having the highest resolution in the market. In the second half of the year, however, its position can be shaken. Cnet.com said that the upcoming Tablet with Windows 8 will have a resolution similar to that of the tablet from Apple. In fact, some say, their resolution may even exceed that of the iPad.
According to Steven Sinofsky from Microsoft, the average density of pixels in the tablet with Windows 8 will be 135DPI. However, it will be presented with the devices with much higher density. Sinofsky states that will be presented in “HD tablets” with resolution of 1920 x 1080 11.6-inch screen and pixel density of 190DPI. There will be a quad core tablet with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 11.6-inch screen and a pixel density 253DPI. Higher resolution will allow developers to fit more content into applications for Windows 8. Of course, Sinofsky states that such a possibility exists that do not necessarily mean it will be widely used. He says some applications for Windows 8 will have a fixed size and is quite likely if they are open on a larger screen, are lined with empty field. Will refer to the minimum resolution for Windows 8, it will be 1024 x 768. This resolution will support Metro interface without problems.
The good news is that most mobile sites today support this particular resolution, so that the operating system will not need to be simplified, or at least not in most devices. Sinofsky noted that only 1.2% of the owners of devices with Windows 7 now enjoy lower resolution of 1024 x 768.
