Is This an iPad 3 Retina Display?

rumored iPad 3 display

The part shown above (bottom) are supposedly part of the iPad 3. If the rumor is accurate, it’s the Retina display. The top-most image is said to be an iPad 2 display. Notice the wiring configuration on the one said to be from the newer tablet?

It makes sense from a technical standpoint, because the extra ribbon is due to the increased data coming through thanks to the higher-resolution display, which is said to be four times that of the current iPad at 2048×1536. Sounds like a nice screen, eh?

One thing is, if unmodified, the screen definitely isn’t an iPad 2 display. Of course, it’s always possible that the image is modified in some way and we can’t verify the legitimacy of the parts.
