The last 6 months have been quite revolutionary for the display technology with the new iPad & Retina Macbook Pro and their 200+ ppi displays that double the typical pixel densities. I have seen them both in action and compared them side by side with their predecessors, and found that the image sharpness is in a different league. They have certainly taken display technology closer to the print medium quality. This also means that the displays are finally closer in pixel density to the camera LCDs that we use to view the images. Smartphones are already on this path, and other hardware makers also seem to be following suit with full HD displays becoming options for tablets & laptops.
I was wondering what impact this will have on photography, as most of the time we spend viewing and editing the images are on laptops\desktops. I'm sure photo editing for printing will be positively affected. In addition, we will need to start using higher resolution images with the displays themselves coming in the 3-5MP range.
