Apple has finally released its third-gen iPad, dubbed the new iPad (Yes, and not iPad HD or iPad 3 as rumours claimed!). And for what it does, it’s definitely a PC killer! Looking pretty similar to iPad 2, the changes are very subtle on the outside – only when it’s powered on, the differences are evident.
Here are the specs in brief:
- 9.7″ HD Retina Display at 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution (at 264 pixels per inch (ppi))
- Dual-core A5X CPU
- 1GB RAM (rumoured!)
- PowerVR SGX543MP4 GPU
- Sizes of 16GB to 64GB (same as iPad 2)
- iOS 5.1
- WiFi and WiFi+4G models
- 9.4mm thick and weighs 652-662g
- 5 megapixel iSight rear camera with 1080p recording (and VGA secondary camera)
- 10 hours of battery with 42.5Wh battery
- AssistiveTouch and other accessibility options (not Siri!)
