Apple unveils new iPad with sharper screen, faster speeds, and new iTV


Apple's new iPad model features a sharper screen and a faster processor, the company confirmed this morning.

Apple said the new display will be sharper than the high-definition television set in the living room. The company says it will show more saturated colors than previous models.

The company said the iPad is powered by a new chip with four processing cores, for smoother graphics.

At the launch event in San Francisco, Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook said, "We are taking it to a whole new level and are redefining the category that Apple created with the original iPad."

Earlier, Cook spoke of a "post-PC" era dominated by the iPad and other Apple products.
Prices aren't changing from the previous models. They will start at $499. Versions capable of accessing cellular networks will cost $629 to $829.

The new iPads will also function as Ai-Fi portable hubs, where cellular carriers allow for such service.

The new iPad model will go on sale March 16 in the U.S.

The Apple store is off line this morning to prepare for the new products launched today.

Compared to the iPad 2, the new model features a higher-resolution camera on the back, comparable to the one in the iPhone 4S.

Apple also confirmed that the new model will come in a version that can use Verizon Wireless' and AT&T Inc.'s "LTE" wireless broadband networks. The offer speeds that are faster than the "3G" networks used by previous iPads, and current iPhones. It will also work with Sprint on the prior to LTE system standard.

 Apple also said it would start letting users store movies in its iCloud remote storage service, so they can be accessed through the Internet by PCs and Apple devices. Movies of all formats will be allowed for conversion to the iCloud standard at no cost, regardless of where they were purchased.  Apple already lets users store photos, music and documents in the service.

Apple is also upgrading its Apple TV set-top box so it can play movies in 1080p, the highest-resolution commonly used video standard. The new Apple TV, priced at $99, will be able to show video direct from your phones, iPads and computers and be compatable with any service selling 1080i or 1080p videos, not just Apple.

I do not own an iPad because I am not sure if it is feasible for me. However, I have friends who are forever dedicated to Apple, they have the newest iPhones and iPads. So I will share this with them and witness how excited they will be, spending the money for the latest Apple product. It sounds like an outstanding product, I do not have a reason to spend the money for the latest and greatest. I like my iPhone 4G but I still have a regular laptop with Windows 7.
