A new iPad has also officially been announced, this is what Apple CEO Tim Cook had to say about it: “We think that iPad is the poster child of the post-PC world. The momentum behind iPad has been incredible and it has surprised virtually everyone. When we set out to create the iPad we set out to create not just a new product but a new category. In order to do that, the iPad had to be the best device for doing some of the things that you do most often. This is remarkable for a device that has been on the market for less than two years.”
The new tablet which has a higher resolution of 2048 x 1536 and contains a total of 3.1 million pixels and can be held at 15 inches with 44% better color saturation. It contains a A5X processor with quad-core graphics. The pad contains the iSight camera which contains 1080p video recording, 5-megapixel backside illuminated sensor, 5-element lens, IR filter, and ISP built into the A5X chip – basically the same set-up as iPhone 4S. It also contains a microphone which supports US English, British, Australian, French, German and Japanese. Another feature announced was AT&T 4G LTE and it now has 21Mbps HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA at 42Mbps, with LTE at 73Mbps. Verizon LTE was announced as well and Vimeo was shown running in order for folks to gauge the speed. Rogers, Bell, and Telus will also be LTE partners in the US and other carriers around the world will partner with Apple as well. The various bands of LTE put there will mean separate devices for AT&T and Verizon – of course – and 3G is still enabled so no worries there and if the carrier supports it, the new iPad can be used as a personal hotspot. It also has Home button. It boasts 10 hours of battery life and 9 hours on 4G, is 9.4mm thin, weighs 1.4lbs, doesn’t contain a new Dock Connector, and will run you $499 for 16GB, 32GB for $599 and 64GB for $699.
