The new iPad will be available to the public starting March 16, 2012. Its main draw to the consumers is its high-resolution graphics and its ability to play HD video content.

The new iPad features better pixel density than the 1080p (1920×1080) widescreen displays use for creative content design. It is even better than HD television when playing Blu-Ray DVDs at 1080p content. Television stations in the U.S. broadcasts to limited 1080i or the more common 720p resolution.

The new iPad screen gives detailed mobile visualization that was impossible not so long ago. Can other competing devices running in other operating systems such as Android and Windows be able to match or even surpass this feature?

Several announcements have been made regarding the upcoming 1080p (1920×1080) on Android devices such as the quad-core Asus Transformer Infinity Pad 700 and the Huawei Mediapad 10 FHD. However, Apple shows off better performance in GPU of the nVidia Tegra 3 (Kal-El) SoC that major tablet devices will be basing in the future.

Additionally, there is no word yet from Apple’s major competitors, such as Android and Windows, regarding what battery technology and life they will use. One thing that is certain now, Apple will be bringing first the high-resolution mobile apps expected to appear on the new iPad.

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

The new model of iPad is simply called “new iPad.”Many speculated that the latest model of iPad would be called iPad 2 HD, the iPad HD or the iPad 3. It is quite strange that the company will call the future of its post-PC drive simply “new iPad.”

It can be concluded that maybe the company decided not to number its new iPad because there are no major changes to it. The iPad’s A5X, for instance, does not look like it is much stronger graphics performer than the previous model.

There is an ongoing concern for consumers outside the U.S. and Canada. It is said that the new iPad’s radio frequencies are not compatible with to other countries’ 4G frequencies. The device will support the 700MHz and 2100MHz LTE bands, according to info page of Apple UK. However, Europe used 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz LTE bands which clearly do not match the new iPad radio frequencies. Europe is using MDM9600 baseband chip of Qualcomm. Other countries such as Japan do not even have LTE support.

Meanwhile, many interested consumers experience difficulty buying the new Ipad online. They reported that they experienced hang up on processing orders online. Many also reported about the delayed shipping in ordering the device.
