The iPad

To probably nobody’s surprise, Apple have released the latest revision to their award winning tablet, simply named “The new iPad”.

In summary, the new advertised features are

  • “Retina Display” with a 2048 x 1536 resolution and 3.1 million pixels
  • A5X quad core processor
  • Up to 10 hours battery life
  • 5MP iSight camera
  • 4G Capable
  • Voice dictation

The new iPad starts at a price of £399 for the 16GB WiFi model, up to £659 for the 64GB WiFi and 4G.
The iPad 2 is also still on sale, now at a reduced price of £329 for the 16GB WiFi or £429 for the 16GB WiFi + 3G.
With iOS 5.1 also released yesterday (available for download now for existing iOS devices), the iPad benefits from further features such as the ability to delete photos from Photo Stream and a redesigned camera App with video stabilisation technology.
Apple have also taken this opportunity to complete the iLife suite of App’s for iOS, now making available iPhoto for iOS as well as updates to the existing applications.
Finally, an updated Apple TV was released. Retaining the £99 price point, it is now capable of playing 1080p video and has a redesigned UI that Apple claim will make it easier than ever to browse through and discover your favourite content.
