A resolution and aspect ratio like that would be awesome - it would be simply vast! I've seen that resolution on my old CRT monitors and it was fantastic. I wish it was still possible to buy 2048x1536 desktop LCD monitors.

This news is from Fudzilla and unfortunately has no links, so I don't know how true it is.

Ice Cream Sandwich in 4:3 format

We got confirmation that Motorola is working on 4:3 format tablet for a while. It gets better, the prototypes are out and our sources who have actually played with one of them claim that it’s a 4:3 format device with a 2048x1536 screen.

The sources continue that the tablet is significantly thinner than Xoom and that it was powered by Ice Cream Sandwich. We have confirmed that this version of OS will finally unite the good things of Gingerbread Android 2.3 and Honeycomb Android 3.0 and merge them both.

The tablet might be out even this year and the source didn’t knew what kind of chip is inside, but he had reminded us that Motorola works closely with Nvidia, so this tablet might end up with Tegra 3, Kal-El inside.

I hate anything 4:3.

Whats the point in having anything at that high a resolution on a 10inch screen? Its just a battery and cpu drain.
Ice Cream Sandwich Android sounds great, i never saw the point in having 2 separate operating systems for the tablets and phones. Also Tegra 3 sounds nice.

(Copy pasta from wikipedia)
Tegra 3 (Kal-El) series
Processor: Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore, up to 1.5 GHz
12-Core Nvidia GPU with support for 3D stereo
Ultra Low Power GPU mode
40 nm by TSMC
Video output up to 2560x1600
NEON instruction sets from ARM
1080p H.264 High Profile video decode
The Kal-El chip (CPU and GPU) is to be about 5 times faster than Tegra 2[15]
To be released in the second half of 2011

Its just so much more detailed then 1920x1080. seriously ?
Yes it is. Multiply out the numbers and you'll see.

You get extremely detailed graphics with that res. Characters don't have to look tiny either. They can be rendered larger and benefit from looking well rounded and having no visible jaggies at all. The smudged look that Cleartype seems to create can be much reduced with a high resolution. And the battery problem may be solved, we'll just have to wait and see for the final product.

My beef is whether this thing is really on the cards at all.

if it does come out, I bet it will be used in the medical field where such resolution is a requirement... (think hand held xray/mri display)

I'm fairly sure there were pics of this at E3. I remember reading about this back then.
