Apple Attempting to Move to *Much* Higher Res on Screen in iPad 3

Word has it that Apple is readying the iPad 3 and that the latest tablet will have a stunning display.  Of course the display is all about the number of pixels that can be squeezed onto a screen and Apple has continued to do a good job of squeezing with every iPad generation.
The latest may very well have 264 pixels per inch which would be double the number that the iPad 2 comes in with at 132 pixels per inch.
Apple has been pushing what they are calling Retina display which is 300 pixels per inch.  Supposedly that is the pixel density where the human eye can no longer discern the individual pixels.  While the iPad 3 doesn't look like it will reach quite that boundary, the new display should definitely be amazing.
My question is that "once we get to a point that we can no longer see pixels, is resolution then a moot point?"  Time will tell.
