LONDON, March 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Since the launch of the original iPad in April 2010, Apple has sold over 55 million units, with similar tablet devices trailing far behind. With prices starting at £399 for the standard 16GB version, is the new iPad worth all the fuss?
It doesn't really look any different from the iPad 2 as the height, width and depth are almost the same and the colour choices are still limited to black and white.
General opinion however seems positive, especially about the incredible 3.1 million pixel new Retina display and the new iPad's ability to play HD videos. Powered by the new A5X chip this third generation iPad also has an exceptionally fast internal processor with quad-core graphics.
New features include iPad Dictation which makes taking notes and writing messages much easier than using the iPad touch screen. With iPad Dictation users speak their words and the iPad converts them into text. There's also a new 5 megapixel camera which also allows you to film 1080p video.
The new iPad also features a new ultra-fast 4G phone connection. However, 4G has yet to be launched in the UK and dates are currently set for the end of 2012, which will no doubt be a few months before the fourth generation iPad will be unveiled.
It's up to the individual if they choose to buy the latest Apple offering, but one thing to say is that the iPad 2 is still going to be available in stores, but at the reduced price of £329.
