Additionally, we’re hearing that Apple is now buying 7.1-inch screen components in preparation for a smaller iPad release later this year,” reads the iPad 3 news report in Venture Beat. This also builds on the growing rumor of a smaller iPad Mini (or whatever that one will be called) to be launched later this year.

The new 3rd gen iPad Retina display boasts 1 million more pixels than your HDTV
Yesterday, all eyes were on Apple when the company unveiled its new tablet which it creatively called the ‘new iPad’ and not the iPad 3 or HD. The iPad 3rd gen came with a vastly improved Retina display, better CPU, but also a marginally thicker body. Rumours were spot on
Apple is a company shrouded in secrecy and this is more true than ever when it comes to the upcoming products. The Cupertino company loves to create a huge build up before an Apple event and then surprise everyone with an incredible feature or product they weren’t expecting. As yesterday’s new iPad unveiling showed, however, it’s getting more difficult for them to pull this off. Indeed, almost all the iPad3 rumours proved true, with the iPad 3rd gen sure enough arriving with a retina 2048 x 1536 pixel display, in addition to other anticipated features like a better camera, better processor, 4G and a thicker chassis.
Some disappointing changes
Since the new iPad model was in many ways what people expected for months, and lacked Siri, some see the update as a disappointment. Moreover, the fact that the iPad 3 is actually 50g heavier than the iPad 2, not to mention 6mm thicker, is also not a welcome change. Typically, the trend for new Apple devices has been to get slimmer and lighter, not the opposite. Fortunately, the new iPad’s Retina display, even though it wasn’t exactly a surprise, does make up for these faults in a major way.
More pixels than HDTV
Apple boast that the retina display seen on the new iPad 3rd generation is the highest ever witnessed on a mobile device. Considering it does offer an incredible 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution, which incidentally gives the device four times the pixelage of the iPad 2, we’re inclined to believe Apple’s bold claim. What this means for the user is that they can now watch videos in full HD 1080p quality, and, claim Apple, the iPad 3 actually manages more pixels (1 million more) than your ordinary HDTV.
Much better screen quality than iPad 2
The retina talk isn’t just marketing boasts either, since reviewers are unanimously impressed with the iPad 3rd gen’s new display. Though the new iPad might look more or less identical to the last one, the difference in screen quality is noticeably apparent. It’s like the shift from the iPhone 3GS screen to iPhone 4, except on a larger scale. It’s not just a bonus for viewing video either, but also for reading books, playing games and editing photos. To this end, Apple introduced the iPhoto app for the iPad 3 with new features too.
Faster quad-core A5X CPU
Aside from the screen, the other positive change is definitely the Apple tablet’s new CPU. The A5X chip is not only a quad-core processor, which is expected if Apple is to keep pace, but the California tech giant also claims that it performs four times as well as Nvidia’s own mobile quad-core CPU, the Tegra 3. Without benchmarks it’s impossible to verify this claim, but the new iPad certainly performed speedily enough in demos and is at least keeping pace with its Android tablet competition.
Camera and 4G upgrade
Apple also addressed one of the iPad 2’s major weakness by beefing up its camera to 5MP. Some might want more megapixels, but the new iPad 3 camera still records video in full HD and the photos it takes look great on the model’s retina display. The addition of 4G LTE broadband to the device is also welcome news, though less so for us in the UK with our backward data infrastructure and no sign of 4G anytime soon.
Battery makes it heavier
The reason for the 3rd iPad’s additional bulk is no doubt due to its bigger battery, which now offers about 70% more capacity than the battery on board on the iPad 2. Despite the larger battery though, the new Apple iPad tablet only boasts a 10 hour battery life, and that’s coming from Apple’s official spec sheet. The true time might be even shorter. Still, we suppose that the increased weight, as well as bulk, are necessary sacrifices in order to gain the retina display.
Samsung says it’s better
Like the iPhone 4S, some consider the recent iPad update to be a minor one and perhaps even a sign that Apple is losing its lustre. Samsung was quick to point out how its Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet outperforms the new iPad in numerous areas, including touch sensitivity and on the design front too. However, the Galaxy Note 10.1 can’t touch the new iPad’s display resolution.
New iPad will cement Apple lead
In the world of tablets, Apple still holds an indomitable lead, both in terms of sales and, now as we see, in terms of hardware too. The smartphone market by contrast, is much more competitive with the iPhone dominating less despite selling millions. We’ll have to see whether the latest crop of Android tablet models can turn the tide, but the odds are certainly stacked against them.
UK price and launch details
The new iPad is launching in the UK next week on Friday, March 16th, for the same prices as the iPad 2, i.e. starting at £400 for the WiFi only 16GB new iPad version. The older iPad 2, meanwhile, will be discounted to prices starting at £329. Are you impressed by the 3rd generation Apple tablet and will you be buying one? Let us know below.
