With a design which is more or less the same as that of iPad 2, and the awesome high-definition Retina Display, the new Apple iPad is a wonderful device which marks a notable mix of the familiar and the futuristic.
Despite the fact that the most expected changes coming aboard the new iPad, vis-à-vis its predecessor, include improvements in the tablet’s internal components and its wireless capabilities, the twofold increase in the new iPad's screen resolution to an unprecedented 2,048x1,536 pixels is apparently the biggest selling point of the new tablet.
That the Retina Display of the new iPad, starting at $499, is a highly impressive achievement for the device is evident from the fact that none of the screens of the other devices – including desktops, laptops, or even 1080p TVs – are anywhere close to the new tablet’s screen resolution.
Apple is apparently betting that the best-thus-far screen of the new iPad will probably more than cover up the fact that the tablets is slightly thicker, at 0.37 inches, and a tad heavier, at 1.44 pounds, than the iPad 2.
Meanwhile, other than the notably improved screen, some of the other attractive features of the tablet include its upgraded A5X processor; iOS 5.1 version; 4G LTE capability; voice dictation functionality; updated 5-megapixel rear camera; and Apple-designed apps for e-mail, Web browsing, maps, photos, music, video, and YouTube.
