This — well, I did not expect this. In fact, no one has. Perhaps? Whatever.
Microsoft has made (or will make, rather) the upcoming Windows 8 Retina display ready, or at least ready for a screen that’s 2560 x 1440 resolution and as small as 10.1 inches. That translates to a deliciously detailed 291 pixels per-inch. Keep in mind however that graphical elements have to be meticulously scaled and detailed to fit the size, so what Microsoft has done is use 100 percent of available pixels for standard density displays, 140 for HD and 180 for quad-XGA panels. Best of all, there are SVG files as UI elements, meaning that density and resolution independence is pretty close for devs.
