Quadruples. Each pixel becomes a 4 pixel grid. But the x and y are each double. If something is vector, like text, then it looks sharper. If something is bitmap, at the old resolution, then it's being blown up 200% essentially to remain the same physical size. So it does't look any better or different, but if a bitmap item has more resolution to draw on, it looks pretty amazing.

However, I hear from the rumor that they don't actually have the ability to quadruple it yet, so you'd actually be looking at LESS real estate, on the same size screen, with higher resolution.

It's neat on the iPad. Text is amazingly sharp. You can't see any pixels. It would be great for working in print graphics for sure. But I'm not sure what it does for our business, since we're not usually working in retina resolutions.
