Re: Not much comment on display quality?

In addition to a reported "leak" of the LED back light around edges of the screen, there have also been some comments concerning black level and contrast in comparison to first revision (and some other tablets as well). The screens are also very glossy, and can be a problem in some light.

Display quality, color rendition, contrast, and reflectivity would all certainly would impact the device's usefulness as a photographer's tool. Perhaps that could be an addendum to the article?

Sure, I'll add something tomorrow. But this isn't meant to be a review, as such. I had no problems with my iPad's screen whatsoever. Even illumination, good color and decent contrast. I do share a previous poster's frustration that the screen is so highly reflective, but you get used to it, and in general, this is an indoor device.
