Well, well, Apple still had a surprise in its sleeve today; ‘everyone’ knew that the company would release a new iPad today, and most of the specs where ‘guessed’ (=leaked) correct.
The one thing that no one had correct was the name; iPad 3 sounded most logical as the successor of last years iPad 2, iPad HD was a possibility because of the high resolution display (‘Resolutionary’ as Apple calls it), but no, the name of Apple’s latest and greatest iPad is simply: ‘The new iPad‘…uhhh, HUH?!?
Specs for the device make it another iWant! :
- Retina display with 2048 x 1536 resolution (the best display ever on a mobile device)
- Dual-core CPU, Quad-core graphics…so it is FAST!
- iSight (HD) front camera and 5MP rear camera
- Voice dictation
- support for 4G/LTE (HSPA+) networks, 73 Mbps (!) max
Besides everything iPad / ‘The new iPad’, Apple also announced a new AppleTV and iOS 5.1…enough goodies for one day!
