What should we call this new amazing gadget, iPad 3 or just a new iPad. Probably apple want their iPad to be named just like that a new “iPad” and they don’t want to number them any more. But I am sure most of you had waited a long for a new Apple launch like i did.

Well apple fans had a lot of expectation from this launch which did not seem to be met. The list of features are not a surprise or rather these are once we all expected to see.(well every thing has a reason.. isn’t it .. 😉 ) Lets quickly get into the main highlight feature list.

Retina display

When it comes to display, Apple iPhone 4 + have the best display ever for mobile platforms, they called it Retina display and they brought it on new iPad too. Everything you do with iPad, you do through its large, beautiful display. And when the display is better, the entire iPad experience is better. The Retina display on the new iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution, 44 percent greater color saturation, and an astounding 3.1 million pixels — in the same 9.7-inch space. That’s four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an HDTV. Those pixels are so close together, your eyes can’t discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance. When you can’t see the pixels, you see the whole picture. Or article. Or game. In ways you never could before.

A5x Processor

The A5X chip with quad-core graphics drives four times the pixels of iPad 2 yet it delivers the same smoothness and fluidity iPad is known for. It is apples first device to powered by a quad core processor. Though hi processing speed means more power consumption the new iPad still gets an amazing 10 hours of battery life.

iSight Camera and HD video recording

5-mpx iSight camera of new iPad features a backside illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by sunlight or candlelight. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly becomes a frameworthy gem. And it also has an built-in face detection that automatically balances focus.

The iSight camera on the new iPad lets you capture all these unpredictable, beautiful, and hilarious moments. In 1080p HD, no less. And with automatic video stabilization, your recording is free of bumps and shakes. Which is a big advantage when you’re laughing uncontrollably.

4G LTE

This new iPad is the first apple product powered by LTE or the so called 4G technology. So you can browse the web, stream content, or download a movie at blazing-fast speeds. It also works on GSM/UMTS worldwide network technologies including HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA — the fastest 3G networks out there. You’ll see downlink speeds up to 42 Mbps with DC-HSDPA and up to 21.1 Mbps with HSPA+

Apple AirPlay

All the great stuff on your iPad — your music, photos, and videos — can now stream wirelessly to your HDTV and speakers via Apple TV7 or to AirPlay-enabled speakers over a Wi-Fi network. With just a tap on the AirPlay icon, you can rock the house with your favorite album, have a movie night, or show off some photos. And go big.

The new iPad would be available from 16 March and is priced at $499 . It is not yet know that this new iPad would be available in India on the same day not don we know the pricing of new iPad in India but i am sure you can go for the iPad 2 since its price would be surely going down.
