Apple unveils ‘The new iPad’ [New Features & Pricing]
Apple has eventually announced the most anticipated device ‘The new iPad’, which surprisingly isn’t termed iPad 3 or iPad HD as speculated by the entire blogosphere. The new iPad has taken a major uplift when comparing it with the original iPad and iPad 2. The new iPad features the stunning and gorgeous Retina Display with an extremely high-resolution of 2048×1536 (3.1 million pixels). That’s double the resolution of former iPads and over 1 million more pixels when compared to a Full HD 1080p display. Also integrated is a re-designed faster A5X chip with dual-core CPU and Quad-core graphics.
The new iPad comes with a 5-megapixel iSight camera, features auto-exposure, auto-focus, auto-face detection, great edge-to-edge detail, AF-lock. Designed with advanced optics, it lets you shoot gorgeous photos and supports 1080p HD video recording.
Additionally, it includes Voice Dictation (converts words into text) and 4G LTE to deliver blazing download and upload speeds. The new iPad delivers the same 10-hour battery life as in iPad 2. However, these new features has posed a slight increase in its thickness and weight which is not an issue. Comes with iOS 5.1, available for download now!
