I just don't think Apple will be so quick to adopt a technology that nobody even understands or would be able to use anywhere yet. It's useless right now.
Also, "cats in a box" is a saying. If you put 2 cats in a box together who don't know eachother they will likely start hissing and scratching at each other for no reason.

Neither, the iPhone 4 is great and I don't need an iPad.
I don't get all this NFC talk for any phone. Is NFC the new jargon for RFID? Does any place use it outside of Japan? My debit card has it but I've never used it.
Unless the iPhone 5 comes with a brain implant it can't have that much over the 4 at this time. A 2MP pixel facetime camera, more RAM, and a new antenna are probably it.

But your right. People will be throwing a fit. They threw a fit when I worked form Target and asked for their ID since I couldnt sell them that M rated game, cough meds or the wine. Its like, Target doesn't give a damn about you. Its just a system set up so we can sell these things legally. (ie; sell the wine to 21+)

But it would definitely be pretty sweet and a must buy (for me) when or if it does happen.

Whether its a marketing term or not, apple created and sort of defined it. Basically, it's when you have such a high resolution that you can't see the pixels. 330ppi for a 3.5" screen held a foot away qualifies according to Apple.
It's not simply "high resolution" as your "indrestery" calls it. No other phone meets this mark.
Any bump in resolution for the ipad would likely have to be 2048x1536. There's a reason why Apple went with 960x640 for iphone 4. The ppi for the ipad then would be 263. Still not quite "retina" as apple defined it but i'm sure they could squeeze the definition (after all, its Apple's creation) a bit and say you don't hold the ipad as close to face.
According to Block, http://gdgt.com/discuss/if-ipad-2nd-...a-display-bcj/, to be true retina (as defined by apple for iphone), it'd have to be "2560 x 1920 pixels, or the same 330 PPI as in the iPhone 4." I'd have to agree with him that we're nowhere close to seeing that yet.

"True retina" is a silly idea. The point of retina display was simply to go above 300, not to hit 330. iPhone 4 is 326.

OK, then misunderstanding. My thought was what was the res needed to equal the iPhone 4 in the iPad 2's display which would be a bit higher. It makes little difference. If the iPad 2 were to have 300+ ppi, I'd upgrade for sure unless there was some drawback. I really enjoy reading on my iPhone.

I'm looking to replace my droid and the Verizon iPhone is at the top of the list, right now there really isn't anything new on the Verizon Android side- and android evolves even faster; less than a year in and the droid felt old.
Now if Apple and Verizon fubar it yet again, then I'll tough it out with the droid another year so I can qualify for the 2 yr dealio. And if the iPhone still isn't on Verizon, well then I'm staying with Android. I have my iPad and macbook to keep me happy with Apple products.

The incredible HD will be coming to Verizon soon. Think of it as the EVO on Verizon. Great if you like the large screen. Hopefully battery life will be better then the EVO.
Granted I think we will see a iPhone on Verizon in 2011, but for me at least, it will have to have some pretty killer features for me to cancel my two year and switch. Plus my area does not have LTE yet, but we do have wimax. I don't see be switching if its just an iPhone 4 with a CDMA chip, and a speed bump, plus iOS 5 will need to have something worth switching.
