The Third Generation iPad
March 9, 2012 § Leave a comment
As I’m sure everyone is aware, the third generation iPad was released on March 7th, and no it’s not called the iPad 3, just the iPad. There have been a lot of media outlets saying that there were very few improvements made to the new iPad, but I disagree. Apple, as always, made some ground-breaking technological improvements, creating yet another amazing device. Here are my top three improvements for the iPad.
The first big improvement is the retina display. The 2048-by-1536 resolution is better than your 50-inch flat screen TV, with a million more pixels and 44 percent greater color saturation. The most amazing part is that it’s on a screen that isn’t even 10-inches. That seems like over-kill if you ask me, but I’m still looking forward to seeing it once it hits stores.
The second big improvement is the addition of 4g LTE. Apple is known for adopting new technology a little later than the rest of the industry, but that’s because it’s always good to make sure the technology is going to be reliable and will stick around before putting it in your products.
The third biggest improvement is the 5-megapixel camera. I must say, although this is an upgrade I was expecting more. The ability to record video with 1080p is great, but I was hoping for a camera with at least 8-megapixels, not 5.
Those are my top three favorite changes. I’m still undecided if I’ll purchase one, but it’s definitely on my wish list.
