Will you buy the new iPad? (poll)
Due out on March 16 with preorders starting today, the iPad HD ushers in a handful of improvements. As many expected, the iPad 2’s successor now features a 9.7-inch Retina Display with a 2,048×1,536-pixel resolution. With four times the pixels on the tablet’s display, you need more power, and Apple gave us just that, as its new A5X chip promises to deliver four times the graphics performance.
Also getting a boost? The iPad’s connectivity speeds. Apple touted the fact that the new iPad has the most wireless bands of any device that’s ever shipped, as it now supports HSPA+ for up to 21Mbps download speeds, dual-carrier HSDPA for up to 42Mbps, and 4G LTE for a maximum of 72Mbps.
Other goodies include an improved rear-facing 5-megapixel iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording and built-in stabilization, as well as speech-to-text capabilities.
So now that all the details are out, it’s decision time: to buy or not to buy?
