Lilbits (5-28-2013): Acer Bulgari tablet with Retina-like display?

Higher-than-1080p displays are becoming almost commonplace in Android and iOS tablets and even some Windows notebooks. But what about Windows tablets?

It looks like they might be next. There’s a rumor that Acer is getting ready to launch a Windows 8 tablet with an 11.6 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, an Intel Haswell processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

Full-screen Windows 8 apps should look great on a high-resolution IPS display. I’m a little concerned that old fashioned desktop-style apps will look less impressive. But with a growing number of high-res Windows 8 devices hitting the market, software developers should have a little more incentive to update their Windows programs with resolution-independent graphics.
