iPad 2 Screen Crosses Pacific: Thinner & Lighter Than Before

Pixel density, resolution, and microscopic Steve Jobs amoebas aside, 9 to 5 Mac and iFixYouri have tag teamed to deliver exclusive nude coverage of the much anticipated iPad 2 display from China. The initial overview suggests a lighter, thinner panel with a skinnier frame, suggesting Apple is looking to shave as much weight off the next iPad as they can for this update. We're awaiting some pro-style magnification shots so we can get a good estimate on the pixel count, but in the meantime we suggest heading over to 9 to 5 Mac for a sneak peek at the next generation display.
