The much anticipated iPad3 was introduced today. Except Appel is not calling it the iPad3. In fact, it’s not clear what they are calling it. They’re just referring to it as the “new iPad.”
Regardless of what they are calling it, it does have some upgrades. The most obvious one is a higher resolution screen, a so-called “retina” display. I’m sure it will be an eye-popper.
The new iPad also has a higher resolution camera, 5 megapixel, that can take 1080p video. Personally, I can’t see myself holding up a tablet to take video.
The new iPad will also support 4G LTE wireless protocol, which means it will be a lot faster in a wireless environment. Verizon and AT&T will be offering the new iPads.
There are a few other internal changes, but that is mostly it. The new iPad doesn’t even look any different that its predecessor, iPad2, except for the higher resolution screen.
The good news … the new iPad will be selling for the same price as iPad2 … NO PRICE INCREASE. Your iPad2 just depreciated big time.
