Apple announced the new iPad, featuring a stunning new Retina display, new A5X processor with quad-core graphics and a 5 megapixel camera and 1080p HD video.
This could be the most amazing part of the new iPad. High-resolution screen with a 2048-by-1536-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi) is potentially the highest resolution tablet in the world.
The new iPad has roughly 1 million or a 51.7% more pixels than a normal Full HD display.
The new A5X chip with quad-core graphics processor is roughly 4 times faster than iPad 2 in order to have the same smoothness and maintain the same incredibly response in iPad 2.
The new iPad is slightly thicker (around 6.8%) and heavier (around 8.3% - 8.5%) than iPad 2 for this reason. You still get up to 10 hours of power to operate the new iPad.
The 5-megapixel iSight camera comes with autofocus, tap to focus, tap to set exposure functions, and built-in face detection. It also lets you capture HD video in full 1080p, with automatic video stabilization. Check iPad Gallery to view photos and videos taken with the new iPad.
The new iPad supports fast cellular networks up to 4G LTE, and you still get access to 3G networks. You can also make your new iPad as a personal hotspot now.
The new iPad pre-orders start today in the Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland, UK and the US and will be available on Friday, 16 March.
