    Default New iPad is Here, 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.

    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.

    guess I need to take my iPad 2 back to Tescos for a refund (within 6month) & get the new one, since I only bought the iPad 2 less than a month ago

    I would have thought 'The New iPad would have featured SIRI and not just voice dictation.

    Okay why would that be terrible?

    So the next iPad will be called "The Amazing iPad" and the next one will be "The iPad that Transforms Reality"

    I was hoping till the last moment for it to be named to something other than 'the new iPad'.
    How would it be going to the store and asking for a new iPad?
    "Excuse me, I am here for a new iPad."

    Looks quite a deal to me especially with the price being the same. Would love to go for a 64gb LTE.
    The front facing camera sadly seems to be the same as that on the iPad 2 though!!

    At $499 I'll take one. This is the first tablet computer I'm excited about.

    "The New iPad" name is sooo lame. Is it the last new iPad, ever? What do you ask for next year when a new New iPad comes out? The heck were they thinking?

    This seems weird to me. It can't be "the NEW iPad" forever, and if you're comparing it to the iPad 2 using just the name "iPad", it will make it sound like the iPad 2's predecessor. This would work if they just called them all iPad and used generations like they do with the iPods, but they already went and screwed that up by releasing iPad 2. No like.

    How dissapointing. I was hoping for something more substantial. Granted, the 4G is nice for those who use it, but otherwise, I basically say "big deal".

    This thing has all the awesome features it was rumored to have and people are hung up by the name? I wouldn't care if this thing was called the iPad crapstain edition, it doesn't take away from what it is. I am sure the next one won;t also be called "the new iPad". Relax people. Buy something for what it is, not for what the company decided to name it...

    Some of you dopes crack me up. No matter what the upgrade, you are never happy.

    People have been crying for retina display since the iPhone 4 came out and now its out and you still complain.
