Amazon is readying the successor to the Kindle Fire tablet, and AllThingsD is reporting that the device will have a nice, crisp, high-resolution display when it arrives. The display resolution will purportedly be boosted to 1280 x 800. This is the same display resolution (and possibly even the same panels) you'll find in the Google Nexus 7 tablet as well. Interestingly, this means that the Kindle Fire aspect ratio will change, as the current model has a 1.71 ratio while a 1280 x 800 display is 1.60.

We open up the brand new iPad (3rd generation) in this episode. The new iPad (or iPad 3, as some call it) from Apple features an amazing Retina display, A5X processor with quad-core graphics, and optional 4G LTE from Verizon or AT&T. It's a nice upgrade from the previous iPad 2, and is the best tablet for the money that you can get today. In fact, you can get one right now from Apple. All you'll find in the box is the iPad tablet itself, along with a sync cable and AC adapter for charging, and that's really it. Not much to this one, but not to worry, we'll have plenty more iPad (3rd Generation) videos for you soon, including some LTE speed tests.
At tomorrow's Apple iPad event, the next iPad will be revealed to the world. We've been tipped on the fact that it'll have a ridiculously high resolution display, and that it will likely pack in 4G LTE for the AT&T and Verizon models, both of which are exciting prospects. Now we're hearing that what we've been referring to as the iPad 3 all along will likely be given a different moniker: iPad HD. It kind of makes sense, and it kind of doesn't. I mean, the display is going to be a ridiculous 2048x1536 in resolution. That is way better than 720p or 1080p, something other tablets have yet to achieve. Further, since this iPad will sport a super high resolution display, that means future iPad will, too. Whatever though--the point is that Apple has settled on a name for the next iPad, and it's iPad HD. We'll have all the details from the announcement tomorrow!
