Re: High resolution reproduction
You are not looking at it right. Resolution is not measured in PPI. It's measured in straight up pixel count for the most part. There are some exceptions. One is where pixel count is actually higher than the detail in the picture. That's not doing anything here. Another is when each pixel is not fully resolving it's detail. This is what's happening on the Note. Due to the pentile display, the Note is resolving at something like 80% of what it should or so. Depends on whose math you use.

The iPad has approximately 3x the number of pixels and nearly twice the resolution. That means that if you full screen a picture on both, the iPad has a huge resolution advantage and can display nearly twice the intricate detail. This is not compression. If you want to make it fairer, hold both devices in portrait mode. Then zoom in on the note so that it is showing half image horizontally. That would let you compare how they displayed the images. Again, this would not work with the note, since the screen has a built in disadvantage with it's pentile display.
Android used to do some funky things with images, but I believe that was all squashed in 2.3. They used to only support 16bits. Here's a read on it for those interested.
100% agree. I loved that the iPad came with an IPS display. I've used them on my desktop for years. Thanks to the iPad, I've enjoyed them on various tablets as well.
