Remember that iPad 2 screen from yesterday?  Some of you were after some more details.  We had iPhone repair specialists at measure up the iPad 2 display in their office and compare it to the current repair part.  Here are the results:

iPad 1 display : Weight: 153.2 grams.  Length: 20.1 cm x 15.2 cm

iPad 2 display:  Weight: 143.9 grams   Length:20.1 cm x 15.2 cm

So 10 grams lighter and a mm thinner from before.  Let’s see what Jony Ive can do with that?

Oh, if we told you that the dots on the display matched up with the current display, would you be upset?
