Earlier today, Tim Cook revealed that sales of the third installment of his company’s iPad tablet were the fastest to date, although refused to disclose exactly how many of the Retina-toting devices had been sold.
By means of a press release, though, the Cupertino has posted sales figures of three million – not bad – especially considering it’s only been retailing for four days.
With the new, improved Retina-ready iPad set to hit our doormats and retailers shelves around the world in less than two days, one would imagine that there are plenty of gadget fans out there who are currently sitting on their iPad 2 which they probably want to get rid off in order to get the shiny new iPad.
After many years of neglect – struggling to shake off the “hobby” tag beset by then COO Tim Cook – the little black box has finally been shown some love. The key new feature is its ability to play 1080p movies, making full use of your HDTV which, unless it was made more than 5 years ago, will also be 1080p.
Hitherto, the device could only chug out 720p, which in a market where set top boxes accommodate 1080p as standard, meant even the bitten-apple logo couldn’t save it from relative obscurity.
Everyone is getting super excited about the third generation iPad. We might not be able to call it the iPad 3, but there is little doubting that this is fast becoming the most anticipated iPad release to date. With that huge Retina Display forming the centerpiece of what is sure to be a popular device, Apple has already seen unprecedented demand for the tablet.
With some of us sat eagerly anticipating a knock at the door on Friday morning, some people will be huddled outside an Apple Store in the hope that they are far enough down the line to be able to pick up a new iPad on release day. We knew Apple’s own stores would be popular destinations for those who chose not to order online, but the only real question was about what time those stores would be opening.
Here she is — the iPad HD! Er, new iPad. Breaking away from the numerical tracking system used before (and still used in the iPhone range), Apple has decided to highlight the most major change in its newest slate by simply dubbing it “new.” By and large, the new guy is the same as the old guy (Home button included), but with a few nice amenities that could very well convince OG iPad owners to upgrade. Upon touching the HD variant, it’s not the overall form factor that grabs us — it’s the screen. Given that we’re unashamed Pixel Density Enthusiasts ’round these parts, seeing a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution display in the same area as the prior ‘Pads is stunning. Nearly two months ago to the day, ASUS wowed our entire CES trailer with a reported 1,920 x 1,200 display on the TF700T; this, however, is something that really needs to be ogled to truly appreciate. In fact, the first viewing conjured up familiar feelings — ones that came to light when placing the iPhone 4 beside the iPhone 3G for the first time.
So, what’d you have in the office pool? iPad 3, iPad 2S, iPad HD? Doesn’t matter, really. All that matters is that it’s here! The next generation of Apple’s iOS slate and, as usual, she’s a beaut. 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. Of course, what would a new iPad be without some updated guts. 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 — we’d say dems fightin’ words.
