Mssimo: When did 1024 x 768 8" screen become "low-res." This article needs a new title. It may suck for photographers but for other reasons like its crap 5MP camera and low storage.
its not designed for photography. It is aimed for web browsing, reading and occasional gameplay.It is also a "cheap" Apple tablet. So the lower resolution is the trade-off. If it had the high resolution of the 3rd generation iPad then it would be more expensive and not be placed in the lineup as it is.
this makes me smile, knowing that its not just my local area that fails with its cycle routes
