So, after months of speculations and waiting, Apple has finally revealed the latest spawn of its tablet line. Dear Techies, we introduce you to the slightly bigger (yes it is, we'll get to that in a bit) and better 3rd-gen iPad.
As expected, the new iPad comes with a 9.7-inch Retina Display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536. That's a huge, huge jump from the iPad 2's 1024 x 768 screen with Apple also boasting improved color saturation. And it looks like previous reports were spot on with the processor as the new iPad has an A5X chip under the hood. Nope, it's not a quad-core system although it also has a quad-core graphics chip. In comparison with the competition, Tim Cook and co. claims their new slate offers up to 4x the performance of the Tegra 3. Whoa! This we gotta see!
As expected, Apple again decided to hide the amount of RAM the 3rd-gen iPad has so we could be looking at 512MB (like its predecessor) or 1GB (like the competition). The imaging department also underwent a major improvement as a 5-megapixel iSight camera that can capture 1080p HD vids is now part of the mix. There's also a new dictation feature that lets you dictate words instead of typing text on the virtual keyboard, something that can already be found on Android devices. The new iPad can be used as a WiFi hotspot, too, depending on your network's terms.
