So, the moment us Apple fans have been waiting for, the new iPad has now been announced!
Here’s a quick run down of the main new features (in no particular order):
1. 5MP iSight camera (same camera lens as iPhone 4S – backside illuminated sensor with a five element lens)
2. Retina display (2048×1536 pixels – that’s 3.1 million pixels or 264 pixels per inch!)
3. A5X quad-core chip, but still 10 hours battery life (so they claim)
4. Ultra-fast wireless (4G)
5. iLife and iWork will now be available for the iPad
6. HD video recording (1080p)
It will be priced at £399 for the entry level model (so no price increase which is nice).
iPad 2 will now drop to £329 for the basic 16GB model.
So, maybe nothing that groundbreaking at face value, but the retina display at 264PPI is going to be truly amazing, and the quad-core chip should make for sensational graphics power.
Available in store from March the 16th or pre-order online now.
