March 7, 2012 - PRLog -- The speculations finally ended. Apple released the details of its new iPad 3. Many of the speculations proved to be correct and a few did not. The true column contains a higher resolution retina screen, a faster processor, better connectivity, bigger battery, better cameras and Siri. However, no A6 processor or tactile touch screen.
The new processor is called A5X. It is a dual core with quad core graphics processor.
The iPad 3 has a better resolution, retina display screen than HD TV sets at 1080P. The higher resolution makes pictures and text look better as long as the source is in high enough resolution.
The connectivity improved as well. Some of the new models include LTE and 4G (HSDPA+, DC-HSDPA) capability as well. Of course Wi-Fi is included on all models. The LTE and 4G capability means much faster data rates but at the price of increased strain on the battery. The mobil wireless options also require a contract with a service provider like AT&T or Verizon.
The new iPad looks similar to the previous iPad 2 models. It is 9.4 mm thick and weighs 1.5 lb.
The price is structured similar to what consumers are used to. The iPad 2 models will get a $50 to $100 discount.
The iPad 3 is available in stores on March 16, 2012, Friday. The countries initially are US, Canada, UK, Germany, Germany, Switzerland, and Japan. In order to avoid camping out in front of the store a preorder from Apple at the Apple Store might be the best option.
