Here you are with latest iPad and
it's called , it was announced yesterday in much awaited
event. And I am sure most of Apple lovers would already sold out
their new iPad 2 to buy "The new iPad". Isn't it confusing, Apple
has done it again with people having high expectation from this
launch event, as there a few rumors about the name of new iPad
being iPad 3, iPad HD, iPad 2S. But Apple's CEO Tim Cook said in
his keynote it is simply "The new iPad". So, after a year or so you
will still call it NEW???
And now let's into the spec and see
what all new features which makes it out of the crowd again.
and foremost is the Retina Display and they are calling it stunning. Yeah
they got it in iPad after introducing it in iPhone 4 in 2010. It's
having amazing resolution of 2048 by 1536 pixels, four times more
pixels than iPad to give razor sharp text and rich colors. It's
having even more pixels than HDTV.
And all that is powered by
A5X chip with quad-core graphics.
That's powerhouse supporting that beautiful display/resolution and
many other features and mind-blowing apps. And you know what, it
doesn't hamper its battery usage. They still claim it have up
to 10 hours of power to read, watch, play, write, and create
whatever you want, all you want.
Next big thing is the iSight camera with
5-megapixels resolution which is also capable of recording
full HD video of 1080p. It also features a backside
illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by
sunlight or candlelight. The iSight camera is designed with
advanced optics having 5-element lens to produce amazing

networks ultra-fast with 4G LTE the latest in
wireless technology. Now, you can watch videos, download apps, etc
at amazingly fast speed, of course it depends on providers
supporting this technology.
And it comes with all other
features including iCloud, Dictation,
App Store with around 200, 000 apps and games designed for
iPad. And it obviously supports AirPlay to play movies directly on
HDTV using Apple TV and you can do it all wirelessly.
Despite of all new features
mentioned above and few Apple lovers will still think their good
friend Siri is missing here. And it was really
much expected here in new iPad. But let's see how it goes.
And I think Apple also agrees there
is no much change in it design-wise that's why they resist calling
it iPad 3, nobody know there is something big in near future. But I
am sure people must be waiting in long ques on its launch date
(16th March) and might have already pre-ordered it.
Now let's have look at pricing, the
Wi-Fi only iPad will cost $499
for 16GB and 32GB and
64GB will have price tag of $599
and $699 respectively. And Wi-FI +
4G version will cost $130 more for each variant. And
it will be available 16th March in following
