I changed my mind, I want universal binaries!

Nook just announced two new devices today, with yet ANOTHER resolution.(1440x900) And Ipad Mini should be out soon....

If GS would put in a feature where the device resolution could be detected, then we could build our apps to compensate for it. Universal binaries was pretty far down my list of wanted features before, but in a couple months time we have 6 new resolution types, not including Windows. Sigh, so much to think about!

    iPad Mini = the exact same thing as iPad 2 in a 7" frame.
    same processor (though on a smaller die)
    same amount of RAM
    same resolution
    So good news for Gamesalad... I think they finally get a release that doesnt require them to reinvent their process or output.
    (well a hardware release... it runs iOS6 :)
    This can be verified by digging through apples developer docs, the Hardware ID iPad2,5
    & and iPad2,6 are believed to be reserved for a Wifi and LTE iPad.
    It is said by the sources digging up this stuff that they have never had a device show up there that didn’t end up being a real, about-to-be-released Apple device.
    (like the iPhone5,1 that started showing up for the iOS 5.1 release)
