Interestingly, my new iPad 3 loads the same level slower than the iPad 2. This was a very short test so not extremely conclusive. New iPad has nothing else loaded on it yet, has the exact same game build as the other iPad.

The 3D scenes look great, nice and sharp. I'm going to up the anti-aliasing and see how that goes. Graphics are nice and sharp in general on the new iPad. I'd throw up a screenshot, but what's the point. It's huge!

I had to use Windows to get to the provisioning portal, couldn't get to it on the mac.

So for the iPhone I just refer to texture.png, but on the iPad I explicitly refer to texture@2x.png, so that the Retina iPad will append @2x onto the filename (which just so happens to already be in the filename) and magically find texture@2x@2x.png. I'll report back if it doesn't work
I guess that should work like a charm. Nice idea!

You can still tell they're not native res though. To see what I mean look at the Twitter icon - the bird looks kind of feathery due to the scaling.
Yes, I think such icons would all look blurry.

The next weeks will be interesting. I expect a lot of updates

I am satisfied with the new iPad. But I have to say that I am not "very satisfied". There is one thing that is not so nice: my iMac does not pump enough juice for the iPad. Thus "charging while developing" went out of the window...

I have the small hope that a powered USB-hub could help. Any experiences?
