Seriously? Is the next generation going to be called – the New iPad? Apple just announced the new iPad which many have been anticipating to be called either iPad 3 or iPad HD. But knowing Apple, it just won’t give us what we wanted and will surely veer away from the norm. So, the new iPad is called – yes, the New iPad. We all better get used to that.
So, what’s new with the New iPad? For starters, it will have Retina Display. Imagined the transition from the iPhone 3GS to iPhone 4 and you’ll pretty much get how improved the display capability of the new iPad from the iPad 2. To be technical how about, the new iPad’s screen resolution is measured as 2048 x 1536.
The new iPad will also have a 5MP iSight Camera, faster and yet the same dual-core processor, quad-core graphics, and 4G-LTE when it is released through Verizon and AT&T.
Price range is the same as the prices of the iPad 2 when it was launched last year (starting at $499 for the base 16GB model). This bumps the price range of the iPad 2 down to $399 for the basic model. Availability will be on March 16, not only for the U.S. for also for Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland, UK and the US Virgin Islands on Friday, March 16.
In the looks department, it’s pretty much the same as the iPad 2. Although some people are saying that it’s a bit thicker than the iPad 2.
