The New iPad is cool!
New iPad introduces new chips impressing all market players. Enhancing for the third time the processor power, video subsystem, memory, and the main console furnished with a super screen the New iPad is again number one in the Tablet market and clearly ahead of any competitor. There’s no doubt about it.
Competitors are expected to have a series of changes and announcements on their attempts to supersede the power of the new iPad. However release of their products expected much later and in many aspects already loosing competition even though they offer unique and powerful solutions. Android is close to getting up to full competition with iOS and therefore the choice for consumers becomes more interesting but no less complicated. In addition, Windows 8 devices are coming into scene.
HD display of iPad was anticipated and expected long time ago since iPad 2. At that time manufacturers were not ready to start the mass production of HD smart screens. Later it become clear that high-definition screens in future tablets must be a standard for any manufacturer. Companies producing displays such as Samsung, LG and Sharp announce their High definition updates which usually leads to mass production in a couple of years and therefore announcements of new gadgets.
Retina screen provides unprecedented image quality and clarity. Awesome resolution of 2048×1536 pixels is now not only on the iPhone, but on the iPad 3. Many of us know limitations of a small screen of the new iPhone. But its screen resolution is better than the majority of large monitors currently have. Graphic designers are shocked by the fact that “non-professional” device could possibly have similar image quality comparing with expensive professional hi-end class monitors. The naked eye is unable to recognize the pixel on the Retina screen and the picture looks like in a glossy magazine. In fact increasing the number of pixels per inch does not make sense anymore. Enhancements may go to different directions improving color, contrast, 3D image processing and so on and so forth. Obviously, the next step in the production of matrices, it is OLED / AMOLED and other technology based on organic light-emitting diodes.
The power of A5X – dual-core and four graphic core processors is quite sufficient to manage large HD images and videos on Retina display. The memory increased to one gigabyte from the previous 512 MB. Because of all of the innovations the energy consumption of new iPad has been increased.
While the old iPad2 battery had capacity of 25 watts per hour, the new battery has almost 43.
Increased battery capacity results in proportional increase of charging time. However classic 10 hours work on the battery did not change and you can still enjoy the power of iPad while connected to the network.
New iPad comes with iSight camera proven to work perfect with the iPhone 4S. This is an excellent camera. The camera comes with image stabilizer and auto focus, white balance and face detection. Of course there is a possibility of video recording in the format of 1080p (and also with stabilizer).It’s good to know that the new iPad has improved photo and video quality providing full HD 1080p and competing with latest camcorders and cameras.
An important feature of the new iPad is the support of network 4G LTE. Nevertheless new iPad 3 supports older standard 3G also and of course Wi-Fi.
Design of the new iPad is almost unchanged. There is almost no change to shape and size and no difference that could catch the eye. No need for new design, no need for other materials. Why? Because it is very good!
The new iPad is the coolest and most wanted gadgets available at the moment. It is far ahead from competitors in many technological aspects. Long battery life, Retina display resolution as well as the new iPad ability to handle HD photo and video is especially impressive for a number of travelers.
