The New iPad Review With A Million More Pixels Than HDTV [Roundup]
Apple with its latest model dramatically upgrades to the display screen and speed, the new iPad offers other significant improvements reviewed over the iPad 2 without sacrificing battery life. The new iPad could be described as a personal display through which you see and manipulate text, graphics, phographs and videos often delivered via the Internet. Today we decided to make a small review of the widely popular Apple tablet, making the delivery of content dramatically faster than ever.
No number, but other cahnges in the new, third-generation iPad – called simply “New iPad” without a number goes for sale on Friday at the same price tag as its predecessor, $499. The battery life slightly underperforms that of the iPad 2, but only by a matter of minutes — a considerable achievement when you think about all the extra 4G and Retina Display technology, as well as the new graphics chip.
Here’s some of the choosen quotes from other early reviewers
All Thing Digital: The company squeezed four times the pixels into the same physical space as on the iPad 2 and claims the new iPad’s screen has a million more pixels than an HDTV. All I know is that text is much sharper, and photos look richer.
If you already own an iPad 2, and like it, you shouldn’t feel like you have to rush out to buy the new one. However, for those who use their iPads as their main e-readers, and those who use it frequently while away from Wi-Fi coverage, this new model could make a big difference. The optional, extra-cost, 4G LTE cellular-data capability made it feel like I was always on a fast Wi-Fi connection.
MacWorld: In a little less than two years, Apple has sold roughly 60 million iPads, dominating the market it created.
Maintaining Apple’s lead in tablet devices is the job of the third-generation iPad, a product that doesn’t mess with success. Like the iPad 2 before it, this new iPad is not a re-thinking of the original concept. Instead, Apple has chosen to focus on a few areas of improvement while keeping the overall package the same. Though it’s an approach that can frustrate people who are disappointed by anything that’s not a quantum leap
Slashgear: “Steve Jobs would have approved of the new iPad. With its focus on the holistic experience rather than individual boasts around its constituent parts, it’s the epitome of the Post-PC world the Apple founder envisaged. No lag or delay; no frustrating cloud settings or arcane minimum software requirements. Simply pick up, swipe, and you’re immersed in a joined-up ecosystem.”
Pocket Lint: “To squeeze in this many pixels could easily have resulted in image noise, crosstalk or any number of visual artefacts, but Apple has pulled it off. Not once have we seen the display look blurry or anything less than stable and pin-sharp … Let’s note, this is an expensive component. It’s hard to believe that rival tablet makers will be able to match, let alone undercut, Apple’s prices.”
The Verge: “Minor gripes aside, the iPad remains best in breed when it comes to design and materials. Other tablets may have more ports or larger screens, but few can match the elegance, sleekness, or solidness of this device … The new iPad is the most functional, usable, and beautiful tablet that any company has ever produced.”
TechCrunch: “You know when you go in for an eye exam and you’re asked to look at a combination of letters and numbers on a chart against a far wall? You read the first few lines, then realize you actually can’t go any further. Then you get prescribed glasses (or contacts) and you can all of a sudden read every letter and number … that’s what it’s like looking at the new iPad versus the older iPads.”
