With the help of the iFixYouri iPhone 4 repair shop, we have been able to acquire what we believe is an iPad 2 LCD, fresh out of China. At this point, we cannot tell if the resolution is higher (or “Retina”) but it is definitely higher quality in terms of its build. The iPad 2’s display is also lighter, and over a mm thinner than the current iPad’s display with a smaller surrounding frame. This is a dream for a product designer like Jony Ive who now has some more tapering options for what looks to be a significantly lighter iPad 2.

After the break, we have pictures comparing the LCD of the iPad 1 and iPad 2 in addition to several close up shots.

LP097X02-SLA3 is the old iPad part

LP097X02-SLN1 is new

From commenter King below(unverified):

I checked it:
(LP)097×02 SLN1= LG Phillips
LP(097)x02 SLN1= 9.7 inch display
LP097x(02) SLN1= used on displays with xga,sxga,wsxga
LP097x02 (SL)N1= H-IPS
LP097x02 SL (N1)= Not sure

So Lg Phillips 9.7in XGA 1024×768 H-IPS display
