The new model has an A5X processor and quad-core graphics chip. Apple even claims its newest sliver of silicon can deliver four times the performance of a Tegra 3.
As was rumored this thing is packing a Retina display, potentially making this the most pixel-packed slate on the market. The 9.7-inch screen plays host to 3.1 million pixels in a 2048 x 1536 arrangement, that’s 264ppi. It’s not just a higher resolution though, the screen also boasts improved color saturation
Siri sort-of comes to the new iPad, does voice dictation only:
It’s not the full voice assistant, but the new tablet does have voice dictation software that supports US English, British, Australian, French, German and Japanese. Not only that, but the dictation feature is available in third-party apps as well, so you’ll be able to speak your tweets and status updates on Apple’s new slate.
New iPad puts the camera back in focus: 5 MP sensor, AF lens, 1080p video:
The new iPad packs a five megapixel backside illuminated sensor, five element f/2.4 autofocus lens with IR filter and captures video at 1080p, slightly better specs than the iPhone 4. Apple’s built the ISP (Image Signal Processor) right into the new A5X chip, enabling features like face detection and image stabilization, just like the iPhone 4S.
