Apple yesterday introduced their iPad 3 in San Francisco. The new iPad comes with a bunch of new features – Retina Display, A5X chip, iSight camera, 4G LTE and many more. The launch of the iPad 3 dropped iPad 2 to an affordable price of just $399.
The Retina Display of the new iPad delivers four times the number of pixels in iPad 2. The pixels are so dense that individual pixels are completely indistinguishable by a human eye when held at normal distance. That means delivering incredibly sharp and realistic text, photos and videos. With 3.1 million pixels iPad 3 is the device with the highest resolution ever seen on a mobile device.
The new iPad is equipped with powerful A5X chip with quad-core graphics which is twice the graphics performance of the A5 chip. A5X chip was specifically designed by Apple to deliver performance for a great user experience. The chip delivers amazing performance and power efficiency allowing users to enjoy stunning graphics, smooth multi-touch, games and entertainment.
The 5-megapixel iSight camera is capable of taking stunning photos and recording full HD videos. The camera is capable of taking great photos even in the low-light conditions with its Backside illumination and also has video image stabilization feature. With iPad 3 comes the ability to connect to the fast 4G LTE network. With Personal Hotspot you can share your fast internet connection with up to 5 devices using WiFi, Bluetooth or USB.
