Comparison of iPad 3 with iPad 2

While the exterior of the latest iPad doesn’t look much different from the iPad 2, it does offer numerous improvements. The new iPad has a super-sharp Retina Display, with a resolution of 2048 pixels × 1536 pixels. The display also claims up to 44% better color saturation than the iPad 2?s screen.

It’s powered by a new chip called the A5X, a quad-core CPU/GPU to help push all those pixels in the display.

The main camera now offers 5 megapixel resolution, backside illumination and a hybrid IR filter, just like the camera in the iPhone 4S. It supports auto-focus, auto-white-balance and face detection. Video can be shot at up to 1080p resolution, with software image stabilization.

The iPad HD also is the first Apple device to support 4G LTE – which means super-fast network speeds wherever you go (not available in Australia). One other bonus feature is that the iPad will also support tethering, so it can act as a mobile hot-spot.

The battery is larger, but battery life is rated as the same as the iPad 2. At 9.4mm thick and 650g, it weighs a bit more than the iPad 2 (600g).
