Apple iPad: A World of Fun, Information, and Productivity at Your Fingertips
The Apple iPad – 3rd generation
It’s the ultimate eye candy. The Apple iPad features Retina display, which boosts the screen resolution to 2048 x 1536 resolution and 3.1 million pixels – four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and over a million more pixels than a 1080p HDTV. An upgraded A5X processor with quad-core graphics provides the extra power needed to drive this incredible visual display, while keeping the iPad’s performance quick and snappy. Even with all this new, more powerful hardware, you still get the 10-hour battery life you’ve come to enjoy with the iPad.
The rear iSight camera on the new iPad has been boosted to 5 megapixels, with a backside illumination sensor, autofocus, face detection, and software image stabilization. Now you can take gorgeous, vibrant photos or stunning 1080p HD video, then show them off to family and friends, right on the tablet.
The iPad 3rd generation takes everything you loved about iPad 2 and takes it to the next level.
iPad 2 is a multimedia entertainment device, an information portal, a communication hub, and a work tool, all packaged in a sleek, gorgeous, ultra-portable design. Sometimes referred to as “iPad II,” this all-in-one tablet runs the latest version of the iOS operating system, giving you access to over 700,000 apps, with over 275,000 of them built specifically for iPad. iOS also ties iPad into iCloud, the online cloud service that distributes your photos, music, documents, and more across all your devices and backs up your valuable data – automatically.
The hardware of iPad 2 (or iPad II, if you prefer) is just as impressive as the software. Packed into the slim, sleek, and lightweight form factor (33% thinner and up to 15% lighter than the original iPad) are a powerful dual-core A5 processor, a 10-hour battery, and two cameras for taking photos, videos, or doing video chats through FaceTime. iPad 2’s brilliant 9.7” (measured diagonally) LED-backlit display is not only gorgeous, it’s also irresistible to your fingers – you won’t be able to keep your hands off the smooth, super-responsive multi-touch display.
