A Sharper, Faster iPad *// Apple’s newest tablet touts modest updates to screen, processor
Suits: $550, Shirts: $65
IWd<hWdY_iYe Apple gave the new iPad a bunch of new features, but no new name. When it goes on sale March 16 in the U.S. and several other countries, it will be “the iPad” or perhaps “the new iPad” — not “iPad 3” or “iPad HD,” as some had speculated. The lack of a new name could cause confusion for buyers, particularly since the older model, the “iPad 2,” will still be sold. But the naming practice is consistent with Apple’s practices for the iPod. New models were simply called “iPod,” and consumers were left to ﬁgure out which generation they were looking for. The new iPad revealed Wednesday has, as expected, a sharper screen and a faster processor. Apple
The current starting price of the new iPad; the previous generation will remain available starting at $399. Cellular-capable models will cost $629 to $829.
Battery life: 10 hours of use Features: Sharper display, high resolution, more saturated colors than previous models, compatible with 4G LTE networks, higher-resolution camera on the back. One downside: New features will make it thicker and heavier than the iPad 2, because the screen requires a more powerful battery. (AP)
said the new display will be sharper than the high-deﬁnition television set in the living room and will show more saturated colors than previous models. A graphics chip with four processing “cores” will drive the screen. Apple is updating some of the software on the tablet to take advantage of the new features. For example, it’s introducing a version of the Mac’s iPhoto photo organization and manipulation program for the iPad. At the launch event in San Francisco, Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook said, “We are taking it to a whole new level.” PETER SVENSSON (AP)
