Apple announces new iPad with 3.1M-pixel Retina Display, 4G LTE, voice dictation


Apple announces new iPad with 3.1M-pixel Retina Display, 4G LTE, voice dictation: "Apple on Wednesday officially took the wraps off of its next iPad, featuring a 2,048-by-1,536-pixel resolution Retina Display that packs 3.1 million pixels into its 9.7-inch display, along with voice dictation and LTE 4G, coming on March 16 to 10 countries.


The new iPad has more pixels than a 1080p television. Packing in 264 pixels per inch, the pixels cannot be distinguished by human eye at a distance of 15 inches. The new iPad also has a much improved, 5 megapixel camera.

The new device, named "new iPad", has what Apple calls a "Retina" display, which displays 3.1 million pixels - a higher screen resolution than an HDTV.It also has a 5-megapixel rear camera, which features the same lens technology as Apple's iPhone 4S, and is capable of recording full 1080p HD video.
Key Features
  • High-definition Retina Display
  • New A5X chip with quad-core graphics
  • 5-megapixel iSight camera with advanced optics, shoots 1080p video
  • 4G LTE models allow for connections to faster wireless networks
  • The third-generation iPad has voice dictation, allowing users to input text by speaking rather than typing
  • Retina screen will have s 3.1 million pixels - a higher screen resolution than an HDTV.
  • Still offers the same 10-hour battery life.
Apple's ability to increase the screen resolution, graphics capabilities, and integrate 4G LTE without compromising battery life on the new iPad will be a key differentiator versus the competition and a tough act to follow


Also launched during the event was Apple's new Apple TV set-top box, which offers full HD films, television and web channels such as YouTube.The new iPad and Apple TV devices will be available on store shelves on March 16.

Tablet Sales To Exceed PC Sales by 2013





When would  Tablets start showing higher sales than PC ? According to Horace Dediu of  Symco that day  when the tablet market (by units) will exceed that of traditional PCs will come sometime in the fall of 2013.


 However in order to achieve this by 2012,  depends on other factors as well, some of the underlying assumptions  are: Mac growth continues at 25% as it has on average for a few years Windows grows slightly in 2012 with the introduction of Windows 8 late in the year. 


Horace anticipates that Windows 8, including tablet versions, would be  mostly upgrades with slow enterprise take-up within this time frame. 


The tablet versions of Windows begin shipping in Q4 2012 with 7% of total Windows shipped. The ratio reaches 20% by end of 2013.


 iPad growth will flatten for ’12 and ’13 at 100%, similar to iPhone’s historic performance. Android tablet growth will be significant in the current year and follow iPad growth pattern though settling at 80% during ’13. Amazon growth will be approximately 80%.

Apple’s next iPad will be called iPad HD, to be available on March 16th

According to a Apple Store source preparations are being made for a big Apple Store event which will culminate on Friday, March 16th,” Seth Weintraub reports for 9to5Mac.

Apple's next iPad will break with its traditional numbering scheme in order to promote its big new feature: the high-definition screen.According to CNET Apple's next tablet will be called the iPad HD instead of the iPad 3. Apple's next iPad will break with its traditional numbering scheme in order to promote its big new feature: the high-definition screen.

Apple owns the rights to the iPad name in the U.S. and other countries (though that's being debated in courts in China right now)The owner of iPadHD.com told CNET earlier today that he registered the domain before the original iPad was announced in 2010 and has never been contacted by Apple about the domain in the years he's held onto it. and that   includes the last few weeks.Separately, iPadHD.biz is already taken, and is currently parked through a domain company that offers a way to bid on the name. And iPadHD.co.uk has been registered since February 26, 2010 (a month after the iPad's unveiling), and is also parked.




according to a new report by Taiwanese publication Digitimes, Apple will likely launch two iPad 3 models — a 16GB edition and 32GB version. While those hard drive capacities aren’t new, it would be surprising for Apple to no longer offer its 64GB capacity, which it offered for both the iPad and iPad 2. The only reason Apple would discontinue making a 64GB model is if only a minuscule number of consumers picked up that model.

Yesterday, two simultaneous reports came out stating the name of Apple’s new product would be the ‘iPad HD’ and recently more and (iM)ore evidence points to an LTE version being announced. Today, Verizon began teasing a “Something is Coming” campaign.


Apple recently announced on Monday that it has now passed the 25 billion app download mark (including free and paid iOS apps)

iPad 3 Coming To Stores Nearest To You in Early 2012

Apple has reportedly begun trial production on its next-generation iPad tablet device and it’s scheduled to launch in early 2012.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple has begun ordering chips, display panels and other key components for the iPad 3. The next generation iPad is expected to feature a high resolution display - 2048 by 1536 compared with 1024 by 768 in the iPad 2 - and Apple's suppliers have already shipped small quantities of components for the sampling of the iPad 3. Suppliers said Apple has placed orders for a 9.7-inch screen device.The report didn’t say anything about the iPad 3s rumored OLED screen, however.)

Apple Inc. is working with component suppliers and its assembler in Asia for the trial production of its next generation iPad from October, people familiar with the situation say, as it looks to stay ahead of the competition in the fast-growing tablet computer market.

Apple  has ordered key components such as display panels and chips for a new iPad it is aiming to launch in early 2012,  according to sources close to Apple.Like many other big personal-computer and consumer-electronics brands, doesn't actually make most of its products. It hires manufacturing specialists - mainly companies from Taiwan that have extensive operations in China - to assemble its gadgets based on Apple's designs. They use parts from other outside suppliers, many of which also are from Taiwan and elsewhere in Asia. The arrangement frees Apple and its fellow vendors from running complicated, labor-intensive production lines, while the ability of Taiwanese companies to slash manufacturing costs helps cut product prices over time.One supplier claimed that Apple has already placed orders to develop 1.5 million iPad 3s in the fourth quarter.
