#674450 - 9th Mar 2012 1:24pm New iPad vs iPad 2

Apple confirmed yesterday during its press event that it would keep the iPad 2 alongside the "new iPad", pushing it down, as it did for the iPhone 4 when the iPhone 4S launched.
There are five big differences between the iPad 2 and the New iPad, all of which when considered together make for a compelling argument for the new iPad.

The screen for a start is the main selling point of the tablet. Apple crammed four times more pixels on the same surface area delivering what it calls a "retina display" experience albeit for tablets rather than smartphones. At 2,048 by 1,536 pixels, it sports by far the highest definition screen of any mobile device on the market.
Having to deliver four times more pixels means that Apple had to opt for a more powerful graphics processing subsystem and it did so by doubling the amount of cores for the GPU, from two to four. Apple has yet to confirm whether it stuck with the PowerVR SGX543 core on the iPad 2 or whether it went for something beefier.

Apple also swapped the sub-standard camera on the iPad 2 for one that can finally rival those on smartphones including the iPhone 4. The five-megapixel iSight camera includes the same improvements - such as 1080p video recording - as on the iPhone 4S with a lower pixel count.

Another significant feature added to the new iPad is the fact that it now comes with 4G LTE connectivitybut with some limitations like the fact that 4G has yet to take off in the UK and that compatibility is still an important issue.
The fifth difference is pricing; that of the iPad 2 has been slashed by 70 to 329 while the new iPad costs the same as the old one, 399.

In the UK, support of HSDPA+ (upto 41Mbps) would have been more beneficial atm, than support of LTE. Three are already rolling out HSDPA+ (dubbed 3.9g) as a cheaper and immediate solution than expensive 4G licenses, new hardware, and the wait of 2 - 4 years for consumers.

Analysts and even fans are not too impressed with the "new" iPad from the looks of things however. One of the biggest disappointments was the lack of Siri support wasn't it?
