Introducing the ‘Resolutionary’ New iPad with Retina Display
Posted on March 7, 2012 by eli courey
Apple introduced the next-generation iPad today with a 2048×1536 Retina display, A5X chip with quad-core graphics, 5-megapixel iSight camera with 1080p HD video and 4G LTE ultrafast wireless technology. Once again, Apple has introduced a product that is years ahead of the competition.
The new iPad’s Retina display has four times more pixels than iPad 2 for razor-sharp text. It’s the best display ever on a mobile device, actually, it’s even a higher resolution than on any laptop I’ve seen before. The new iPad has 1 million more pixels than a 1080p TV. The pixels are so close together that your eyes can’t discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance.
The new iPad has an A5X chip with quad-core graphics, letting it drive four times the pixels of the iPad 2 at the same smoothness the iPad is known for, but even a little faster. It still gets 10 hours of battery life, 9 hours using 4G LTE.
The new iPad features a 5-megapixel iSight camera, letting you take much higher quality pictures than on the iPad 2. Besides having more megapixels, the camera also features advanced optics, a backside illumination sensor, autofocus, tap to focus and more. It also records HD video in full 1080p.
Another new feature in the iPad is 4G LTE technology, giving you faster internet speeds. And the iPad can also be used as a personal hotspot, but I’m sure AT&T will charge a lot extra to enable this feature.
The new iPad doesn’t feature Siri, but it does have dictation. You can write an email, send a text or search the web using your voice. Just like on the iPhone 4S, tap the microphone icon on the keyboard to use dictation instead of typing. So you can do things like update your Facebook status or share a thought on Twitter by just speaking.
Pre-orders of the new iPad start today, and it will be available in stores on Friday, March 16. Check out some videos of the new iPad and pre-order online at Apple’s website.
