So the dust has settled on the launch of the . There were some surprises (the name), and some features were as expected (the retina display), but all in all it looks like a cracking device. And still the top tablet in town.
We've got all the official pictures right here, so click through to see it in all its glory.
To recap, the new iPad comes packing a retina display with a resolution of twice the iPad 2, a new A5X quad-core processor, and a 5-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording. But perhaps the biggest surprise was the name -- new iPad. That's it. Not iPad 3, or .
That screen is the main selling point though: with a resolution of 2,048x1,536-pixels, games and movies should look awesome on the 9.7-inch display. But the device has improved in almost every way, with boosted imaging skills along with image stabilisation software for improved snaps and HD movies.
Inside, the new A5X quad-core processor promises to be twice as fast as the Tegra 3, with four times the performance. We'll be the judge of that, just as soon as we get our hands on a review sample.
LTE is on board for 4G speeds, which is a bit sooner than Apple usually adopts new technologies. Usually it waits until the tech is established before implementing and making it more consumer-friendly, but LTE is still relatively new. And we won't be seeing it in the UK until the end of the year at the earliest, but in the meantime we should be able to take advantage of the souped-up DC-HSDPA.
But anyway, enough from us. Let the picture show commence.
