The iPad 3,The new iPad, the new iPad 3… call it what you want, but
it's a device that from the outside looks remarkably like the iPad 2 but with if differ totally from i pad 2.
The question most people ask it nowadays: what's different from the old one?
in this case it's pretty easy: there's a Retina Display that makes
everything looks superbly crisp, an updated A5X processor bringing
quad-core graphics and a 5MP camera on the rear with a VGA sensor on the

Oh, and the iPad 3 is also the device that brings iOS 5.1 to the masses (well, it's also on the likes of the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 as well, but hey, we're not reviewing those today, and you don't really care unless it's a new iPad.)
The design of the new iPad 3 isn't really anything different from the
original duo from Apple's tablet range. Actually, while we're thinking
about it, it looks almost identical to the iPad 2 – to the point you'd
struggle to tell them apart when turned off.GET IT HERE
ENJOY Pick up the new iPad and suddenly, it’s clear.
You’re actually touching your photos, reading a book, playing the
piano. Nothing comes between you and what you love. To make that
hands-on experience even better, we made the fundamental elements of
iPad better — the display, the camera, the wireless connection. All of
which makes the new, third-generation iPad capable of so much more than
you ever imagine Four times more pixels than iPad 2. Razor-sharp
text. Richer colors. The Retina display transforms the entire iPad
experience. So everything looks and feels incredibly lifelike and
perfectly detailed.GET IT HERE
The new iPad The best display ever on a mobile device.
Everything you do with iPad, you do through its large,
beautiful display. And when the display is better, the entire iPad
experience is better. The Retina display on the new iPad features a
2048-by-1536 resolution, 44 percent greater color saturation, and an
astounding 3.1 million pixels — in the same 9.7-inch space. That’s four
times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an HDTV.
Those pixels are so close together, your eyes can’t discern individual
ones at a normal viewing distance. When you can’t see the pixels, you
see the whole picture. Or article. Or game. In ways you never could
The new iPad has a million more pixels than an HDTV. Breakthrough technology. For a breakthrough display.
In order to create a display with four times the pixels, we
had to design it in a completely new way. You see, every pixel in a
display has multiple signals telling it when to light up. But when you
have a lot of pixels and a lot of signals on the same plane, signals get
crossed and image quality suffers. To make sure everything on the new
iPad looks crystal clear, Apple engineers elevated the pixels onto a
different plane — separating them from the signals. It’s technology
that’s breakthrough. Just like the new iPad itself.
See how it works The A5X chip with quad-core graphics drives four
times the pixels of iPad 2 yet it delivers the same smoothness and
fluidity iPad is known for. Even with all that extra oomph, the new iPad
still gets an amazing 10 hours of battery life. More power on display.
The Retina display on the new iPad wouldn’t be possible without
the new and powerful A5X chip. It drives power to every one of the 3.1
million pixels in the display. And its quad-core graphics processing
makes everything you do on iPad feel incredibly responsive. From the
little things like swiping, scrolling, and pinching to the big things
like editing photos in the new iPhoto, applying titles and transitions
in iMovie, and, of course, playing games. Instant on. Touch and go.
You use your iPad all the time. A few minutes here, an hour or
so there. And each time you press the Home button or open the Smart
Cover, it’s ready to go. Instantly. That’s the work of flash storage.
It’s fast and reliable, so you can get to your apps and do whatever you
need to do, pronto. Battery life spared.
The new iPad features a Retina display with four times the
pixels of iPad 2 and quad-core graphics. How much of an effect does that
have on battery life? Almost none. You still get up to 10 hours of
power to read, watch, play, write, and create whatever you want, all you
want.1 The new iPad features Apple’s 5-megapixel iSight
camera. Designed with advanced optics, it lets you shoot gorgeous
photos and 1080p HD video. Shoot 5-megapixel still images.
The 5-megapixel iSight camera features a backside
illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by
sunlight or candlelight. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set
exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly becomes a
frameworthy gem. And with built-in face detection that automatically
balances focus and exposure across up to 10 faces, there’s more room for
more grins. So everyone look at iPad and say “Cheese.” Record HD video in full 1080p.
Sometimes life takes you by surprise. You’re
reading a best seller on your iPad waiting for the morning train when
you spy a gifted performer on the platform. Or you’re browsing the web
on the couch when your dog trots by wearing your daughter’s tutu. The
iSight camera on the new iPad lets you capture all these unpredictable,
beautiful, and hilarious moments. In 1080p HD, no less. And with
automatic video stabilization, your recording is free of bumps and
shakes. Which is a big advantage when you’re laughing uncontrollably. It’s all in the lenses.
Megapixels matter. But the quality of a photo is determined by
other things, too — like the camera’s optics, image signal processor,
and software. The iSight camera uses advanced optics to give you the
best picture possible. With an ƒ/2.4 aperture and a five-element lens,
it captures light efficiently to produce a sharper overall image. And
the hybrid infrared filter — typically reserved for expensive SLR
cameras — keeps out harmful IR light for more accurate, uniform colors.
