When something this exciting comes along, we know that information is one of the most important services we can offer consumers.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 07, 2012
Earlier today at a press conference hosted in San Francisco, CA, Apple, Inc., unveiled the iPad 3, the much-discussed next generation tablet from the technology industry giant. The iPad 3 will retail at $499 for basic, and $599/$699 for the 4G versions (that’s right-4G LTE!), incredibly competitive prices in the tablet industry – especially considering the powerful capabilities and stunning innovations jam-packed into this sleek new kid on the block.
Apple, Inc. CEO Tim Cook began the event by summarizing the astonishing success of the iPad 2, which sold 15.4 million in the last quarter, more than any PCs sold by any PC manufacturer. Apple has 362 retail stores and saw 110 million visitors in Q4 of 2011 alone. The number of Apps downloaded has reached the mindboggling number of 25 billion. After concluding his review of the impressive stats, Cook said with a smile “Everyone has been wondering who will come out with a better tablet than the iPad 2, well, stop wondering – we are!”
Perhaps the most touted accomplishment of the new iPad 3 is its new screen, or ‘Retina display.’ The screen boasts incredibly high resolution, 2048 x 1536, which is double that of the current iPad 2. At 3.1 million megapixels, the most ever in a mobile device, the iPad 3 Retina display has over a million more pixels than 1080p full HD TVs. A new processor, the Apple A5X makes the iPad 3 even faster than its predecessor, the X standing for quad-core graphics. The A5X claims to deliver 4x the performance of NVIDIA’s Tegra 3. In addition, added image stabilization feature in the iPad 3 makes gaming and watching video clips that much easier on the go.
The theme of the innovations and design changes for the iPad 3 seems to be enhanced visual capacity and graphics, and increased diversity of features that are guaranteed to deliver the ‘Wow!’ factor. The iPad 3 incorporates a brand new camera, dramatically increased from the 1.0 megapixel in the iPad 2 to a 5.0 megapixel camera. Referred to as the iSight, the new camera enables the iPad 3 to have even more of the same functions of a digital camera. For example, the new camera is capable of shooting 1080p full HD video.
For those interested in speed and connectivity, the iPad 3 does indeed offer 4G LTE, and boasts 21Mbps HSPA, DC-HSPA for 42Mbps, together with LTE for 72Mbps. The 4G LTE will be available from AT&T and Verizon carriers. Also new on the iPad 3 is a dictation feature with an incredibly simple on/off switch that allows users to have the iPad 3 take notes from their dictation. Incredibly useful for students and presenters, this new feature is a sure-fire draw for the education and business communities.
Believe it or not, the iPad 3 runs all of its impressive new features with 10 hours of battery life, 9 hrs if 4G LTE is turned on. And if all of the new tech specs weren’t enough to grab consumers’ attention, Apps like Sketchbook Pro and Garageband and have exciting updates that take full advantage of the new Retina Display. And the things the latest version of iPhoto is capable of make it fully drool-worthy for every photographer alive, amateur and professional.
