As if the iPad 2 didn’t already redefine the tablet game, Apple has done it again with the release of the iPad 3. Below in detail you will find a description outlining all the wonderful features and specifications of this device.
Display, Display, Display – Retina Display
Retina HD Display. And that’s how the new iPad is introduced to you today. The prime feature out of so many new iPad features that turned the tables towards the device is 3.1 Retina Display feature.
With the new iPad, resolution is all that matters. And frankly, they said it’s only felt. Of course, 2048x1536px, 3.1 Million pixels and apps specifically designed for this monster resolution describe it all perfectly well.
The new iPad has a resolution that will blow your imagination and bring clarity like never before. It’s better than 1080p HD.
- It delivers almost four times the number of pixels as compared to iPad 2
- It makes it impossible for bare human eye to distinguish between individual pixels from a certain normal distance.
A5X Is the Key | Quad-Core GPU
The processor is A5X (and not A6). It’s dual-core as before, but there’s a quad-core GPU which explains the support behind all the stunning display qualities of the new iPad. The new processor is also a powerhouse, which comes with some excellent features that support the camera.
The battery life is amazing!
- It comes with a 42.5 watt-hour battery
- Made up of lithium polymer
- Lasts up to 10 hours while surfing web on Wi-Fi, listening music and watching videos.
- The built-in speaker gives a brilliant stereo effect
- New iPad comes with a 30-pin dock connector port
The new iPad has an amazing sound impact:
- 3.5 mm stereo headphone
- User configurable sound adjustment.
- Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound feature
- Apple Digital AV Adapter gives theatre like feeling.
- Includes accelerometer and gyroscope.
- Ambient light sensor
iOS 5.1 Finally
With the launch of the new iPad, another long-awaited update is released. The iOS 5.1 is now out and will be available in sometime. The new iPad will ship with the iOS 5.1 bringing several changes and updates to the OS. Apps are going to get a huge shot in the arm.
No Siri, Unforunately
There’s voice dictation when you type but that’s how far it goes. There’s no Siri. Sorry, folks. That’s very disappointing.
iMovie and iPhoto
Of the best things that were talked about and shown at the event, iPhoto comes as the best. Updates to iMovie bring new features like Storyboard and new editing chops. Making movies on the new iPad will be amazing.
The iPhoto is a world of its own. It brings awesome changes to the way you edit photos, share them and perform intelligent actions on the photos. To call the app as amazing would be an understatement.
Loads of changes to iWork. Many updates available free of cost for those who have already purchased the apps and available for $9.99 for those who haven’t.
Apple seems to have a good focus set on the camera for the iPad. This time, with the new iPad, you will get what is termed the iSight. Needless to say, with processor’s backing and IR filters, the new camera comes at a 5 MP resolution, capable of capturing crisp images – which look amazing on the Retina HD display – and also of 1080p movie captures!
There’s a white iPad too!
iCloud gets quite a lot of clout with the new iPad. You can, as before, save and shareyour documents, photos, videos, contacts, bookmarks and almost everything on the iCloud. Some new features also include Garage Band across four devices connecting via iCloud and helping in a jamming session which can be recorded!!
Check all the new iPad specifications before purchasing. Whether you are touching a photo, reading a book or playing a piano, the difference can be seen and felt!
