Apple launches the new iPad featuring Retina display and a 5-Megapixel camera.

 

SAN FRANCISCO. Apple has introduced the third generation of iPad, featuring a new Retina display, Apple’s new A5X chip with quad-core graphics and a 5-megapixel camera with advanced optics and 1080p HD video. iPad with Wi-Fi + 4G connects to fast networks worldwide, including AT&T’s and Verizon’s 4G LTE networks, and still delivers the same all-day 10 hour battery life.

The good news is that iPad 2 will now be offered at at just $399. The best time to own one!

The new iPad’s Retina display delivers four times the number of pixels of iPad 2, making web pages, text, images and video look sharp and realistic. The 3.1 million pixels in the Retina display are more than one million more pixels than an HD TV. Movies are now capable of playing at full 1080p HD-resolution, delivering a better viewing experience on a mobile device.

The powerful new A5X chip with quad-core graphics was specifically designed by Apple to deliver a fast, responsive user experience while supporting the Retina display. The A5X doubles the graphics performance of the A5 chip.

A new video image stabilization feature removes the bumps and shakes typically seen when filming with a hand-held device.

The new iPad comes with iOS 5.1, the latest update to Apple's mobile operating system.

The new iPad also supports dictation. Instead of typing, you can tap the microphone icon on the keyboard and then say what you want to say, the iPad listens.

The new iPad Wi-Fi models will be available in black or white on Friday, March 16 for a suggested retail price of $499 (US) for the 16GB model, $599 (US) for the 32GB model and $699 (US) for the 64GB model.
