Despite the recent controversy surrounding working conditions in Apple manufacturing facilities, consumers don’t seem to mind too much when it comes to the new iPad 3. March 12, 2012, the iPad 3, is due to be released on March 16. Apple had already sold out of all its inventory allotted for pre-orders. What makes the new iPad 3 so popular, we will get into that in a minute should you plan on purchasing one.
One of the first features that will make your eyes pop – perhaps literally – is the Retina display on the Apple iPad 3. The Retina display doubles the pixel count of the iPad 2, topping out at 2048 x 1536 pixels.
This makes the new iPad 3 ideal for HD gaming, HD movies, and HD reading. Although it’s still not as soft on the eyes as Amazon’s E Ink technology, in every other respect the Retina is a superior display when compared to any other mobile device.
The iPad 3 also clocks in at 4G LTE speeds making it not just more beautiful, but also much faster than the iPad 2. Plus it’s not just data speed that’s improving with the iPad 3. The new iPad also comes with the A5X chip. Although the A5X chip doesn’t seem that different from the A5 chip at first blush, the A5X processor has quad-core graphics that will offer users cutting edge graphics that will definitely make the iPad 2 seem like old technology
If you have owned previous generations of the iPad, you’ll know from first hand experience that the original iPad didn’t have a camera at all while the second generation iPad had a camera that was barely acceptable.
The new iPad has a camera that will easily out-perform cameras on most existing smartphones and cell phones. With a 5-megapixel camera and a 1080p camcorder, the new iPad has all the camera power that the average user will need.
One of the only things that doesn’t change with the new iPad is the price. As with previous versions of the iPad, the iPad 3 will start at a cool $499. If this sounds like bad news to you, there’s a silver lining to this price cloud. The iPad 2 will be dropped to $399. Unless you’re a high-def addict and can’t live without the Retina display, the iPad 2’s new price has a chance to put an iPad 2 in your hands if you don’t have one already.
To sum things up. The new iPad is head and shoulders over the older iPads when it comes to the display screen, the speed and the much better camera. Even if you don’t decide to go for the iPad three, deciding that the iPad 2 has plenty for you. You’ll still benefit from the upgrade thanks to the lower iPad 2 cost. All in all, the new iPad might be enough to make you want to give up your laptop computer and make the big switch to tablet computing.
