Yes,it’s just simply called as ‘the new iPad’,not ‘iPad 3′ or ‘iPad HD’.There are some great improvements,but some Apple fans may feel disappointed as the changes are not so significant.
Retina Display will be one of the greatest improvements.As an iPad 2 user,I’m never satisfied with the display quality on iPad 2,I think many iPad 2 users think it in the same way.Well,now on the new iPad,four times more pixels means much sharper texts and colorful pictures can be shown on the screen.The experience of watching HD movie or playing HD games on iPad will also raise to another level.
The A5X chip is working on the new iPad.It’s a dual-core CPU with quad-core graphics which is able to drive the new iPad running smoothly with 4 times more pixels and still have more than 10 hours battery time.
A 5MP iSight camera is equipped on the back of the new iPad.It’s designed with advance optics and no doubt that nicer photos and videos could be shot by it.By the way,the new iPad can shoot 1080P video.
The new iPad is a world-ready device as it could support GSM,UMTS,21.1Mbps HSPA+,42Mbps DC-HSDPA and the latest wireless technology-4G LTE.
On the new iPad,dictation is also a way of input.We can’t see Siri working on this device up to day,but only a part of it-the voice input function.Well,it’s better than nothing.
Oops,forget to mention that the new iPad supports Personal Hotspot as well just like iPhone.
The prices of the new iPad are just same as before.
Therefore,iPad 2 has been revised its selling prices:
16GB WIFI: $399 16GB WIFI+3G=$529
The sales of the new iPad will start on 16 March 2012 in first batch countries:US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore & Australia.According to the past experience,the second batch countries will be announced by the end of March.
