The next generation iPad was released on March 7th, 2012 at a special event in the Yerba Buena Center for that Arts in Bay area. This is actually the same venue that Steve Jobs introduced the Apple iPad 2 in March 2011. The new Ipad has great new features and thus will increase the competition in the already competitive tablet market. Here is a brief look at a number of the tablet's features.
Improved Retina Display
Named PC features an improved version of Retina display than that found on the Ipad 2. This gives the unit a crisp clear HD display and a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536 over a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 found on the 2nd generation iPad.
The unit has a processor update from the current A5 to the new A5X. The new A5X processor has a quad-core GPU but a dual-core CPU. The brand new iPad is thus not a true quad-core tablet once we had anticipated. However, the maker says the brand new processor is two times as Nvidia's new quad-core processor (Tegra 3 ), found on a number of top Android tablet pc's.
The apple ipad 2 received lots of bad reviews because of the poor cameras that are not able to produce satisfying video but still shots. With the latest Apple tablet, you can now take quality video but still shots, because it has 5-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording quality of 30 fps.

The new operating system is sleek and easy to use and brings iCloud streaming for movies. iPhoto has been delivered to the iPad and supports a max resolution of 19-megapixel, giving you pin sharp images. iWorks and iLife have obtained a lift to take advantage of the brand new Retina display.
On the wireless front the new iPad offers support for every wireless standard conceivable including Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, 4G mobile broadband, and Bluetooth 4.0. The device supports AirPlay mirroring up to 1080p on the new Apple TV.
For anyone who desired to purchase an iPad 2, but were not able due to the high price. The development of the 3rd generation iPad should be a welcome move, because it has caused the iPad 2 prices to be came by $100.
