Is “The New iPad/iPad 3” what I want?


For all fans of Apple products releae of  iPad 3 or “The new iPad” how it was officially called it was a moment of joy.

But perhaps an iPad price made a part of those interested to wonder if iPad 3 is realy needed and if iPad 2 can handle for a while the user needs.

What iPad 3 configuration is?

  • Display 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel;
  • CPU Apple A5X, dual core, 1 GHz;
  • GPU PowerVR, quad core;
  • 1 GB RAM;
  • Internal Storage 16 / 32 / 64 GB;
  • 5MP camera with iSight, autofocus, IR filter, Full HD video
  • VGA frontal camera;
  • HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11n, optional 4G
  • Bluetooth 4.0;
  • 9,4 mm thich; 652 de grame;
  • Li-Po Battery, 45 Wh.

Apple A5X is a new processor, but unfortunatly is a dual core not a quad core. However the video capability of this processor  is very improved. The processor contain an aditional 4 cores of video and the performance is similar with nVidia GPU from the Playstation Vita.

This will make from the iPad 3 a great video gaming tool.

Next best thing is the display resolution. the display is still 9.7 inch but with a monster resolution of 2048 x 1536. This think make the pixels so small that the human eye could not see them and the image is improved .

A joke about iPad 3 display said that the reality look pixelated after you use iPad 3.

Connectivity is the next great improvement. The new iPad have 4G speeds but be careful not everyvhere 4G is availble. Fortunately the US have 4G from AT&T and from Verizon.

The new iPad price:

On amazon the price is starting from 575.98 $ for the cheapest version (Wi-fi and 16Gb storage) and go to 958.99 $ for a Wi-fi + 4G + 64 Gb storage.
