Default iPad 3 (The new iPad)

.... being announced live right now!

From what's been announced so far it has a retina display that has 1 million more pixels than a 1080p HDTV. A5X quad-core processor that is twice as fast as a Tegra 3. Full 1080p video recording. Voice dictation.


All we know so far. SUPER stoked!

Makes me think I should've held off on buying my Ipad 2 back in December. I'm geeked about the new Apple TV, with 1080p support.

Looks like the same price-point as current iPads. Pre-orders start today. I'm in!

Týr,

I have been refreshing the Apple Store regularly(it is down) to see when it comes up. Was hoping they'd do pre-order today, they announced it?

Negative Ghost Rider. Not a phone.

Yes, they announced pre-orders today. Not sure when that's going live though

EDIT - they are currently displaying some of the new higher res content right now. Autodesk, Flight simulators, etc.

One of the developers just called the Retina Display "luscious". Had to chuckle at that one

Now maybe I'll get the Ipad2 if the price drops considerably. That's what I did with my iphone. When the 4S came out the price for the 4 dropped to pocket change prices so I got one.

benchmark comparisons for the processor? I mean legit ones, anything from a manufacture is always suspect.

It will probably be a little bit before we get those. They are still presenting it now. Hoping some of the attendees will get to demo them today so we can get accurate specs.

Default Re: iPad 3

that would be nice. I wont buy one as i use and like android. but a decent leap in processing tech would be cool. That being said my first android phone was clocked faster then my first desktop computer(my 2009 motorola droid1). so

I can't wait -- I am stoked about the new iPad.

Have not seen the new name yet (iPad 3, iPad HD, etc.)...

Engadget is speculating that its just going to be called the "new iPad". Interested in that as well.

LOL @ Devan. That sounds about right

They are now demo-ing the new iPhoto on the iPad. The iPad supports up to 19 megapixel photos. They are currently editing a 12 megapixel photo shot with a Nikon D300S

EDIT - they already demoed the other new iLife apps which received minor tweaks.

I'm hoping the haptic feedback rumors are true. That would really make me go out and preorder one.
