New iPad announced: quad-core, 2048 x 1536 resolution


1:00 PM on 03.07.2012



Apple's unnamed new iPad was unveiled today in San Francisco at a morning press event. As expected, this new iPad will sport a Retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536, coming in at 264ppi, the highest in a mobile device yet. The size and shape haven't changed much, with the whole kit coming in at 1.4 lbs, and the battery still pumping out 10 hours.

Under the hood it comes with a A5X processor and quad-core graphics that are supposed to spit out four times the performance of the Tegra 3. On the connectivity front, Apple's latest tablet has an 4G LTE radio. The camera has been upgraded to 5MP, with autofocus features and and 1080p video. 

Game developers are already hard at work scaling up their current games to use that shiny new screen and crazy resolution. Porn is going to be nuts on this thing.

Pricing for the March 16 release of iPad 3 is as follows: 16GB for $500, 32GB for $599, 64GB for $699. Add $130 for 4G. Pre-orders start today.
