Apple new iPad Overview

  • 1Description

The 16GB iPad with Wi-Fi (3rd Gen, Black) from Apple features an incredibly thin design and even more power than its predecessors. The improved Retina display contains 4 times more pixels than the iPad 2 for outstanding clarity and sharpness with both text and images. A newly designed dual-core A5X chip with quad-core graphics provides a great deal of processing power and speed to compensate for the increase in resolution and delivers the same responsive feeling of the former models. This increase in power and resolution all come without the cost of lessened battery life; the iPad still features up to 10 hours of power between charging.

The rear-facing iSight camera incorporates a 5 megapixel backside illuminated sensor for increased lowlight sensitivity as well as great performance in bright situations. Autofocus, tap-to-focus, and tap to set exposure settings provide a range of functions that allow you to achieve the best exposure possible in a quick and intuitive manner. Face detection is also supported and recognizes up to 10 different faces for improved exposure and focus settings when photographing people. In addition to improved still imaging capabilities, the iSight camera also supports full HD 1080p video recording with automatic image stabilization. The camera utilizes a 5-element f/2.4 lens for sharpness and integrates a hybrid infrared filter for greater color fidelity.

All of the internal features function via the robust iOS operating system for extremely fluid navigation and multi-touch use. iCloud support is maintained and allows you to wirelessly sync all of your information and data between multiple devices. And for even greater functionality with your iOS devices, dictation is now supported allowing you to simply talk in order to type. You can speak your emails, texts, notes, or web searches and have the written words automatically appear. A plethora of apps designed specifically for the iPad are also available, easily attained from the App Store. These apps are formatted especially for the vivid 9.7" display and support the integral functions of the device.

Retina Display
Improved Retina display provides 4 times more pixels and 44% greater color saturation than the iPad 2. Within the 9.7" LED, 2048 x 1536 pixels render text and images with extreme sharpness. The display also features a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating for increased resolution during use.
Dual-Core A5X Chip
The dual-core A5X chip with quad-core graphics support provides a great deal of smoothness while powering substantially more technology. The new chip is able to easily render all of the 3.1-million pixels within the retina display while still retaining a substantial 10 hour battery life. The chip also functions in a way that allows you to touch and go with limited power-up times.
iSight Camera
The rear-facing camera now features a 5MP backside illuminated sensor for increased lowlight sensitivity and greater resolution for printable images. While this increase in resolution definitely allows for higher quality imagery, a newly designed 5-element f/2.4 lens also renders images with greater sharpness and definition. A hybrid infrared filter is incorporated as well, for limiting color aberrations and providing greater fidelity when photographing in mixed light situations.

Autofocus, tap-to-focus, and tap to set exposure settings provide a range of functions that allow you to achieve the best exposure possible in a quick and intuitive manner. Face detection is also supported and recognizes up to 10 different faces for improved exposure and focus settings when photographing people. In addition to improved still imaging capabilities, the iSight camera also supports full HD 1080p video recording with automatic image stabilization.
iOS and iCloud
iOS and iCloud provide the robust backbone for this device to run off of and support the seamless multi-touch interface. Within the iOS system, App Store hosts a plethora of iPad-specific apps designed for the vivid 9.7" Retina display. iCloud functions as a wireless service for you to keep all of your devices synced and maintain the content throughout them.
Dictation
Dictation is a new service that allows you to simply speak the text you wish to write. By enabling this mode, you can speak into the microphone and have the iPad automatically compute the text within a given field. Dictate is compatible across all text-rich applications, including 3rd party apps.
AirPlay
AirPlay functions off of the wireless capabilities of the iPad and allows you to seamlessly watch or listen to your content on your HDTV. When connected to the same wireless network, content can be controlled from the iPad and ported through or watched on auxiliary devices.

    Apple new iPad Reviews

    16GB iPad with Wi-Fi (3rd Gen, Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 129.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Stunning resolution! I got this as a gift for my fiancee as a birthday present, and she loved it. She wanted something she can take with her while on the road to check emails and for entertainment to kill time. I'm very happy and pleased about it. The picture quality and the screen resolution is stunning! Everything is so much clearer than the previous ipad generations. The only thing I am worried about, and I haven't tested, are the overheating issues I've heard some users experienced with this new ipad 3. As well, I've heard about wifi issues others have experienced. Although I have used it lightly, I haven't had any issues connecting to my router and downloading and web surfing as of yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Upgrade for Original iPad Owners I upgraded from the original iPad and it was definitely worth it. When the iPad 2 came out, I couldn't justify the upgrade. With the New iPad, it was definitely worth the wait. First off, the increased screen resolution is noticeably better. The graphics are cleaner and text is so much easier to read. This is by far the best upgrade from the original iPad. The better processor is also a huge upgrade. I noticed on my iPad 1 that some programs would hang or lag, but not on the new one. The GPU alone makes games come alive. If you own the original iPad and are asking if you should upgrade, the answer is a resounding YES! It is worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Nicest Gift Although this item was backordered for almost a month (being sold out on the first day of release and B&H was closed for the Lenten & Passover observance), it was worth the wait. The iPad arrived in a well-protected package and I gave it to my daughter as a Birthday gift. I may not be the one who's using it, but I could see that my daughter likes it very much because of the smiles in her face whenever she uses it. Likewise, her contentment with it was very obvious when she bought an expensive, but very nice case that complemented the mostly-sought Apple product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Tablet on the Market I highly recommend the new iPad. If you're looking for a great tablet to act like a cross between a pad of paper and a laptop, look no further. The screen in breathtakingly crisp. The touch screen is by far the best on the market. Apple was right when they said the battery can last for up to 10 hours. There is truly an app for just about anything. Easy to operate, and I don't have to carry around my massive laptop in order to do meanial things, like checking something on the internet. It's a beautiful suppliment to a computer. It's NOT A LAPTOP REPLACEMENT, but if you would like to take notes, become even more productive outside the office, show off your portfolio, play games, and/or consolidate files, the iPad (specifically, the new iPad) is the way to go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What more can I add? There are contenders and posers, still the I PAD is still the standard those are compared against. It has improved my productivity, I use it to check my g mail on the go. And I use it hooked up to my Nikon D700 to view the photos as I take them. The retina screen is razor sharp and shows me thr detail necessary to evaluate the pictures and I can see right away if I need to tweak the image.I also use it as a portable portfolio, the clear, large screen is great to showcase my work.finally, It is truly the friend of artists, photographers and business people on the go. of course I it is quite fun during down time as well.The fact that there are so many apps are availble helps to increase the I Pad's usefulness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I am very pleased with my brand new iPad (3rd Generation). Super fast, brilliant display and very convenient and user friendly! I use it to check E-Mail, surf the web and even word prcocessing. Nothing is more convenient than popping open the iPad while watching TV and accomplishing everything you would normaly do sitting in front of a big computer or laptop. I'm hooked. B and H was awesome and shipped the item in no time. I think I had it three days after ordering it with standard shipping! Thank you B and H and I look forward to doing business with you again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd recoment buy.Ether for pro or not. I am a photographer. And I would recommend this product to people who are work with photos. It is easy to show your photos to customers for example when you are in a cafe where agreed to meet. Or just met a friend and learned that he doing to have wedding and he is looking for a good photographer, and you have ipad with you and you can easily display yours photos to him and this person will be your customer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product Hi, I use my IPad for everything. Oh my goodness there's so much I can do on this unit, it's unbelievable. I'm having so much fun experimenting with all the different features. The apple guide is the best, any question I have I just type it into the search area and my question(s) are answered immediately. The best thing is it's written so I can understand what they're saying. They don't use a lot of technical stuff to answer the question. That's great! I haven't found anything that isn't GREAT yet! From what I can tell, I won't.
