"Like a glowing piece of paper". The Verge's Joshua Topolsky reviews the new iPad

The first iPad 3 reviews are starting to appear. Just as we expected, the main focus of nearly every one of these early reviews is the breathtaking quality of the display. Here's one of our favourite quotes from Joshua's thorough review at The Verge:

"You literally can't see pixels on the iPad's display when you hold it at a regular distance, and even up close you have to really inspect the thing to see dots. For rendered text or high resolution images, it just looks otherworldly; like a glowing piece of paper. There were moments when I was testing the device when I would just marvel at a single paragraph of text, or I kept zooming in and out on a particular headline to see how cleanly fonts are rendered on this screen."

We have included the video review seen above, but please be sure to read the entire review, it includes some remarkable screenshots of the Retina display and some 5MP camera samples.
