One more screen comparison

I noticed that compared to the iPad 3, the screen on the iPad two has an odd, micro-grainy, shimmering effect on flat backgrounds, surely due to the pixels being (just) visible. The screen on the iPad three, when compared, is just flat and sharp and dead-calm, like a high-quality book print. (And I mean really high quality, much better than a cheap paperback.)
I think this visual "uneasiness" of the iPad 2 screen was one of the reasons I was so much looking forward to a big Retina display.

Well, it turned out that I can't capture it on camera. But at least here is one more close-up text comparison.

(Both clickable. The resolution difference really becomes clear then.)
