A New, High-Definition iPad From Apple Is Unveiled

That iPad you bought last year is now officially a piece of crap!  Apple has rolled out the brand new iPad and pre-orders are already being taken.

 

Apple rolled out a high-definition iPad on Wednesday with a display screen that promises to be dramatically sharper than the current model, the iPad 2.

“It is amazing,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said at a San Francisco unveiling. “We’ve taken it to a whole new level, and we are redefining the category that Apple created with the original iPad.”

The new 9.7-inch display screen will feature a “retina display” of 2047 by 1536 pixels, compared with the current model’s 1024 by 768 pixels.

To break it down, that’s a total of 3.1 million pixels on the display screen.

“Your retina in your eye cannot discern those individual pixels,” said Apple Senior Vice President Phil Schiller. “The images on it look stunning.”

The new iPad will be available March 16 and cost the same as the iPad 2 — from $499 to $829 based on storage capacity and Wi-Fi capacity. Pre-orders were opened at Apple’s online store on Wednesday.

The new version will be available in the United States on AT&T and Verizon and will be the first iPad to connect to 4G networks (a fact that, at least for now, remains academic in most cities).

“This new iPad has the most wireless bands of any device that has ever shipped, and it is truly revolutionary,” Schiller said.

And the new iPad will be the first to run on 4G wireless networks, a source familiar with the device’s specifications told CNNMoney on Wednesday.
