New iPad details officially announced

Geez. We got all excited about an “iPad HD” and all we got is the “new” iPad. What’s in a name anyhow? Today Apple announced details of the new iPad in San Francisco. Tagged as “resolutionary,” the new iPad does bring a whole new level of sharpness to the tablet’s 9.7″ display. This new iPad houses 3.1 million pixels powered by the new dual-core Apple A5X chip. The resolution has been improved to 2048×1536 (from 1024×768) and uses “Retina Display” technology. Apple boasts the new iPad has a million more pixels than a standard HDTV (see graphic below). The rear camera on the new iPad (now called the iSight Camera) has also been improved to 5-megapixels from 0.7-megapixels. And, HD video recording has been increased to 1080p from 720p. Storage capacities on the new iPad will be available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB configurations. There will also be two networking models available: a Wi-Fi model, and Wi-Fi with 4G LTE model. Battery life (even with the higher performing display) is still rated at 10 hours. Get more specs and photos at Apple.com.
