As we reported earlier this morning, the iPad 2 rumour mill has already churned out the possibility of smaller, 5.6-inch and 7-inch model Apple tablet with latest mumblings leaving these mini iPads touting more expensive, power friendly high definition OLED displays.

Whilst OLED screens do add more depth of colour than their LCD counterparts, Apple has recently demonstrated with the iPhone 4’s Retina display that there is still life in the older LCD technology yet.

The OLED screens, joined by a healthy update to the tablet’s graphics card could see the iPad’s visual capabilities rivalling those of the gaming quality seen on the Xbox 360. If this graphical update comes to fruition, it will be an update that will not only please hardcore and casual gamers alike but make the iPad even more desirable than it is already.
