  • Meet "The new iPad", Details Inside



    Rumors be gone, the new iPad is here. Albeit, without an official name yet. Seriously, it's called "The new iPad." *facepalm* It appears Apple is dropping the numerical naming system from the iPad line and will adopt an iMac and MacBook like naming system with each subsequent release simply going by "iPad." All of that naming hoopla has been cleared up. Which is still incredibly confusing, because Apple is still selling the iPad 2, which when positioned right next to the new "iPad" looks like the superior device to the average person.

    Display

    The device features the rumored Retina Display with 264 pixels per inch for a total resolution of 2048 x 1536. Pixels become indistinguishable when held 15 inches from the user. Apple expected users to hold the was expected to be held at 10 inches from the user.

    Processor and Camera

    All of this is powered by an A5X dual-core cpu and quad-core graphics processor. According to Apple the A5X is four times faster than the Tegra 3. The new iPad also sports an improved iSight camera, with a 5-megapixel backside illuminated sensor for the rear camera, with a 5-element lens, hybrid IR filter, auto-exposure, and auto-focus and Apple designed ISP. So, it’s essentially the same setup as the iPhone 4S minus the 8 megapixel rear camera. The camera has 1080p video recording as well, with video stabilization, and temporal noise reduction.

    Limited Siri Functionality

    The new iPad is Siri capable as well, kind of. It is only capable of voice dictation and comes with support for US English, British, Australian, French, German and Japanese. Expect the jailbreak community to change this in the coming weeks and months.

    4G LTE Capable

    But, the big announcement, it has 4G LTE capability. Performance is amazing with 21Mbps HSPA+, DC-HSDPA at 42Mbps, and LTE rounding out the top with speeds of 73Mbps. Whether or not you get these speeds in the real world depends on your location and the crapiness of your network. The device is 3G world ready and Tim Stevens is claiming that the device has “the most bands ever.”

    Battery Life

    The iPad will sport 10 hours of battery life on 3G and 9 hours on 4G (so much for a big dip there). With all that new tech crammed inside the new iPad is 9.4mm thin, and 1.4lbs. Slightly heavier, but barely noticeable.

    Price and Avalability

    The new iPad will maintain the same price points for the current Wi-Fi models and the 3G/4G capable models will adopt the tradition 3G pricing of before. Apple is launching the device simultaneously in the U.S., Canada, UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, and Japan on March 16th. Also, the iPad 2 will continue to be around and drop by $100 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model, the only model that will presumably be available after current stock sells through.

    Apple and company showed off an incredible amount of games, inviting Epic Studios on stage, amongst others, to show off the increased graphics power of the new iPad.Apple’s Tim Stevens claims the new iPad has more screen resolution and memory than both the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3. Guess the PSP Vita just got served.

      So is this a real retina Display?

      I thought Apple said It needed to be at Least 300 Pixels Per Inch for something to be considered retina.

      No surprise another failure by apple, is it seriously that hard to add AWS for GSM in an iPad? Oh well I'm happy with my Galaxy 10.1 4G tablet and it gets HSPDA+ on both TMO and AT&T along with my Galaxy Nexus plus I don't have to wait for jailbreak it to do what I want with my own device. I also figured this site would have been fixed by now but it still only works in IE which is very slow. In firefox you can only see the first 3-4 articles unless going through the forums. I'll go hide now because I'll be getting flammed by the apple fanboys.

      Not gonna flame you. Not my style. But I do wonder why you would even bother making such a post to this site other than to provoke flaming.

      Just to stay my opinion basically. If Apple would have added AWS to either the iPhone or iPad I would have stayed with their products. It's just disappointing to not be able to use them on T-Mobile service but yet they add LTE to accommodate ATT and VZW. I just heard about it so I figured I'd come on this site and read about it and the site still doesn't work right either so just basically ranting about the site also. Yes it works with IE just fine but still does not work right on firefox.

      Fair enough. I think Apple has something against T Mobile.

      Didn't expect this sort of craap to start rearing its head so soon after Jobs departed.
      Virtually anything would have been better than 'The New iPad'.
      But that's governance by committee and consensus for you.

      I suspect we'll be seeing a lot more of the sort of retarded insanity you typically get from overpaid marketing 'creatives' ... whose output is embarrassing and ill-considered.

      Jobs' parting gift should have been the appointment of a strong successor - probably not easy in the corporate world.
      It would be nice if someone with a passion for the product rather than a professional career-monkey took over the reins.

      This site works just fine for me in Firefox, at least all articles show up anyway. Still having issues with certain articles not displaying all the comments.

      I was too, I had the PlayBook for a couple days and even liked those features. They may be saving that option for future devices though, which is smart considering this iPad seems to only be a improvement on the iPad 2
