What's inside the new iPad

Culture
It's Wednesday, March 7th, 2012 and word shocked full of iPad announcement news. I'm Bridget Carey on CNET.com and it's time to get loaded. Apple's newest iPad is just called the new iPad. It looks the same as the iPad 2 but the big update is in the hardware. The screen has been updated to a Retina display, which doubles the iPad's screen resolution. It's a better screen that any current tablet or laptop. It also has a better camera on the back, with 5 Megapixels and the camera can take video in 1080p HD. It's also a faster quad-core processor, and that means, better gaming graphics. The Wi-Fi only model starts at the same price, 499, and now, there's a version for a 4G LTE connection with Verizon or AT&T, starting at $629. Apple is taking pre-sale orders online and the New iPad hit stores on Friday, March 16th. Also, note worthy with the New iPad. Apple says, the battery can still last for 10 hours and on 4G, it can last for 9 hours and that's impressive, considering most gadgets suffer a battery drain when tapping into 4G connection speeds. But it does wages slightly more than the iPad 2, and what about Siri? The voice command personal assistant, will not be in the New iPad. Instead, there's a simple voice dictation App that will turn speech to text. In typical Apple style, most the presentation folks around the software and what users can create. Apple has brought a $5 photo editing application to iPad, called iPhoto, which has features like a multi-touch editing of the picture. There's also updates to the video editing app, iMovie, and the music creation App, Garage Band. In Garage Band, players connect to iCloud and can have a jam session with 4 other IOS Device users, and... So, what about the iPad 2? Well, all models have dropped in price by a 100 bucks. Apple also announced a new version of it's Apple TV. The Streaming Video Box. It will support 1080p HD video and will cost the same, as the previous version for $99. Available also on March 16th. Movies and TV Shows in iTunes will now be playable in 1080p and users can redownload their purchases to the higher resolutions. Now, there is other tech news besides the iPad. Let's turn to a nemesis of Apple, Samsung. At a spring product launch event in New York, Samsung showed off its Smart Interaction Televisions, which respond to hand gestures and voice commands to change the channels or browse the web and these TVs will come with the remote control, that has a touch pad, and no number keypad. The remote also has a built in microphone to listen to spoken commands. Samsung is also coming out with a bluetooth keyboard, that works with Smart TVs and it's Galaxy line of tablets. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Bridget Carey for CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
