Just got new Apple New iPad (3rd Generation)
Just purchased a new Apple New iPad (3rd generation). Excellent screen I must say. There is a big improvement from iPad 2 to iPad 3, especially to the back facing camera – from 0.7 MP to a 5MP camera.
Screen resolution has jumped from 1024-by-768-pixel (0.768 million pixels) to 2048-by-1536-pixel resolution (3.14 million pixels), which means twice the density per inch. That amount of graphical resources was matched with a dual-core Apple A5X custom-designed, high-performance, low-power system-on-a-chip with quad-core graphics, which means power consumption would go up, but Apple has cleverly tweaked the design to put in a huge 11,666 mAh battery under the hood of iPad 3, while the iPad 2 has just a 6,944 mAh battery. So go figure out how much longer it will take to charge up an iPad 3. I was told the normal iPad 2 would take 2-3 hours, but now iPad3 would need 4-5 hours for a full charge.
