Just when we thought they couldn’t, they did. Apple, the leader in state-of-the-art tablets and smartphones, has bettered itself once again. They have given us features that we didn’t think we craved, but once we see them in full effect the world is, quite literally, much brighter and crisper.
Available in Mexico on March 23, the new iPad, or more commonly known as iPad3, boasts various new features that will dazzle and delight.
Chief among these features is the “retina display”, a superb new screen that ups the ante by adding more pixels into its 9.7-inch screen. With more than four times the resolution as its predecessors, the new iPad packs a serious punch.
Technically-speaking the screen’s resolution is 2048×1536 pixels, up from 1024×768. Text, high-resolution images and high-definition movies are the real standouts on the new iPad with incredible detail and crispness.
The screen also has the added benefit of dimming further than its predecessor, making it easier on the eyes for bedtime readers. The new iPhoto app showcases the screen enhancements extremely well with a slew of Photoshop-type benefits that allow you to edit, tweak and enhance your photos without leaving the new iPad.
Of course, this bright new screen has its cost, namely a bigger battery to compensate for the higher power consumption. Despite the bigger battery, Apple has managed to keep battery life virtually the same, though it is slightly heavier and needs to charge longer.
The meatier battery also beefed up the thickness of the new iPad slightly (from 8.8mm to 9.4 mm). Some iPad3 buyers have noted that it runs hotter than the old one, perhaps because of the larger battery.
Other notable improvements include the rear camera that now matches the newest iPhone’s camera with 5 megapixels of resolution. Apple also promises faster wireless connectivity.
Once again, Apple has taken their evolutionary approach to products we didn’t know we needed, but actually did.
