Enjoying the 4G service with Apple’s much robust and well created iPad, technology seekers did not need to wait because the newly crisper iPad with LTE has launched yesterday by Apple to replace iPad2.
At an event for March 7 in San Francisco, Apple announced launching its iPad 3 as a boosting entry with its newly amazing improved version of iPad to beat its rival like Samsung and Amazon.com Inc in tablets market.
However the tablet supports LTE connectivity (4G), a more power-hungry technology but in India, only 3G is supported at the moment.
Apple said the iPad would still offer at least nine hours of battery life and will go on sale on March 16 with price starting from $499 in the US and nine other countries.
Catchy features of this new iPad will have a much-improved display so-called a 9.7-inch ‘retina display‘ with 2047 x 1536 pixels with a camera of 5 mega pixels and powered by A5X, a processor with two CPU cores and four GPU cores.
It sports full 1080p HD and that’s why the new iPad will be called the iPad HD, rather than iPad 3 or even, as others have suggested, the iPad 2S.
Despite its name issue, a faster processor than the iPad 2 has included in this new iPad that will be powered by Apple‘s A6 chip, a quad-core processor. But some sources suggest that it will be a dual-core chip like the A5 that powered iPad 2.
However one fact is that the most targeted points for an upgrade is of the screen and processor. And Apple’s manufacturing partners in the Far East tried to make all both into one.
Calling new iPad 3 as a “substantial” upgrade, Sterne Agee analyst Shaw Wu said, “We continue to believe this significant refresh will likely help drive higher iPad sales and help further differentiate from Amazon’s Kindle Fire and the myriad of Google Android offerings out there.”
Beside this, Apple also confirmed availability of iOS 5.1, an updated version of the OS that powers iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, along with updated Apple TV that would be able to play 1080P videos. This upgraded Apple TV will be available on March 16 in the US for a suggested retail price of $99.
