PaperThe Ravishing Outlook and Features of the New iPad
The new iPad was released on the 16th of March this year. It was announced in the beginning of the month and unlike other apple products, the iPad 3 or the new iPad, as it is dubbed, did not come with as much anticipation.
As expected, the new iPad keeps the same screen size as its predecessors, sporting a 9.7 inch screen with 1536 x 2048 pixels, a pixel density of almost 264 pixels per inch. While this is lower than the pixel density of the iPhone 4S, which boasts 330 ppi, it is still pretty impressive for a tablet. In contrast, the iPad’s closest rival, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 only has a pixel density of 149 ppi. This represents a massive upgrade from the 132 ppi pixel density on the old iPad which had 768 x 1024 pixels on the 9.7 inch screen. Steve Jobs famously claimed that you would need to file your fingers if you are to use a 7 inch tablet comfortably, which indicates that the iPad will continue making 9.7 inch iPads.
The iPad 3 is manufactured and accessible with three variable inbuilt storage capacities, that is of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The iPad 3 also supports a memory card of up to 64 GB, which means that you can have a maximum memory of 128GB on your iPad, more than what is available on any tablet so far.
Software and Processing
The iPad 3 is going to come boxed with the iOS 5.1 but can be upgraded to iOS 6.0 by the users. It boasts a 1GHz dual core processor along with a PowerVR SGX543MP4 GPU. The PowerVR SGX543MP4 GPU is said to be extremely powerful, with benchmarks showing that it is capable of quad-core graphic processing power, meaning that the iPad will be able to play very high graphic games, something that will have the developers licking their lips in anticipation.
Just like the old iPads, the iPad 3 comes in 2 different connectivity options; the Wi-FI only and the Wi-Fi along with 3G connectivity. This means that like most tablets these days, the iPad...
