    Apple Announces New iPad Complete With Retina Display




    Apple has today launched its new iPad in San Francisco, and we’ve got all the details for you here, hot off the press, courtesy of Engadget’s live blog. First of all, the new iPad will have a Retina Display, with a resolution of 2048x1536 ,or 3.1 million pixels, “the most ever in a mobile device.” It will have 40% better colour saturation. The new processor will be a quad-core A5X processor, which Apple says will have four times the performance of a Tegra 3.


    As far as the camera goes, the iSight rear camera will be a 5-megapixel, backside illuminated sensor model with a 5-element lens, IR filter, and ISP built into the A5X chip. Basically this is the same set up as the iPhone 4S.
    The new iPad will also have 1080p video recording, complete with software stabilization.

    The next new feature for the iPad is voice dictation, with the iPad’s keyboard now having a microphone added to it. It supports US English, British, Australian, French and Japanese.

    Now onto LTE, which the new iPad will most definitely have, at 73Mbps. Verizon, Rogers, Bell, Telus and AT&T will all be Apple’s LTE partners for the new iPad.

    You will also now be able to use your iPad as a personal Wi-Fi hotspot, carrier permitting.

    The new iPad is slightly heavier than the iPad 2, coming in at 1.4lbs.

    It will have a battery life of 10 hours, same as the iPad 2.

    The new iPad will cost exactly the same as the old iPad, but the LTE versions will cost $629 for the 16GB version, $729 for the 32GB version, and $829 for the 64GB version.

    It will be released on March 16, and is available to pre-order starting from now, in 10 countries, including the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Switzerland and Japan, marking Apple’s biggest roll-out ever. It will roll out to many more countries on March 23.

    Sounds like it's pretty much what we expected. The name is my main disappointment I wish they would have chosen something new, because I can already see the confusion it's going to lead to just here in the forums alone

    The big downside for me is the lack of unlimited data plans for 4G. Sure, I'll be able to stream my (already purchased) video content from the cloud, but I'll pay dearly for the privilege. Until reasonably price unlimited data is a reality, more storage space would do more for me than cloud-based content.

    My main disappointment is no 128 Gig. When will they up the memory? I'm out of room on my 64.
