    'The New iPad'...Retina Display, A5X Chip, LTE, 5MP Rear Cam..

    Apple today introduced "the next iPad", the latest generation of the company's popular tablet device. Offering a Retina display measuring in at 2048 x 1536 pixels, Apple claims that it is "redefining the category Apple created" with the original iPad. At 264 pixels per inch, the new display is considered Retina quality with indistinguishable pixels when held at the typical viewing distance of 15 inches.

    Featuring an A5X system-on-chip with quad-core graphics, the Retina display offer 44% greater color saturation than its predecessor. All of Apple's stock apps have been optimized for the new ultra-high resolution display and existing apps from third-party developers will be automatically scaled up with text rendered for the new resolution. With additional work, developers can also optimize their entire apps for the new display.

    On the camera front, the updated iPad features a 5-megapixel rear camera with advanced optics very similar to those found in the 8-megapixel camera on the iPhone 4S. 1080p video recording is also supported. Voice dictation as found on the iPhone 4S is also included.

    Cellular-capable models of the new iPad also support 4G LTE as had been rumored by multiple sources. Supporting data speeds of up to 21 Mbps on HSPA+, 42 Mbps on dual-carrier HSPA+, and 73 Mbps on LTE, the new iPad offers a significant improvement in cellular data capabilities. LTE partners include AT&T and Verizon in the United States and Rogers, Telus, and Bell in Canada. Due to differences in frequency bands, AT&T and Verizon support will require separate models.

    On the battery life front, the new iPad offers the same levels as before: 10 hours on Wi-Fi or 9 hours on 4G LTE. As for the device's size, it comes it a scant 0.6 mm thicker than the iPad 2 at 9.4 mm thick, and weighs 1.4 pounds versus the 1.33-pound iPad 2.

    Pricing remains as before at $499/$599/$699 for Wi-Fi models and $629/$729/$829 for 4G LTE models, with capacities coming in at 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB. The new iPad launches on March 16 in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia.

    Apple will also continue to offer the 16 GB iPad 2 in both Wi-Fi ($399) and Wi-Fi + 3G ($529) models.

    Need to get one of these for my mom. Tired of fixing her computer because she opens every attachment sent to her.

    Why aren't they calling it Ipad 3?

    No idea. They also chose to add dictation that is NOT Siri. Shrug.

    No external sd cards, nothing new, no innovation what so ever. Company that is too busy suing everybody else.

    According to the WSJ....
    Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of world-wide marketing, simply said that Apple broke from the convention "because we don't want to be predictable."

    What's the point of it really? You can't put it in your pocket and go out with it, same as a laptop.

    My brother had the original one and it was fun to play with...because the games on my iphone were too small. That's about it.

    How does this iPad fall short in the innovation department compared to other tablets?

    Have you tried the mirror feature to play your games on a TV? It's pretty cool!

    I wonder when Apple will make a major change to the operating system?

    Holding out to see what the Windows 8 tablets are all about.

    I'm so glad I sold my iPad 2 before they announced this thing. You can't give those things away right now if you wanted!

    Hahaha oh I'm not hating, just joking around.

    Wanna know the truth? I'm typing this from my MBP. I have another MBP sitting on my desk inches away from this one (it's not on). I just sent a text from my iphone (yes, I do have and use the Starbucks app as well). There's an ipod touch somewhere in my room. And I'm listening to music with my beats by dre. Haha I'm the last person to talk $#@!.
