New iPad 3 Spec & Price - Retina Display iSight Camera & 4G

[Note: The new generation iPad was not named "iPad 3" but "The New iPad" doesn't fit it well too. So I temporarily named it iPad 3]

On 2AM Malaysia Time (GMT+8) the new Apple iPad3 has been released and people stay awake just to know about the features. So what's new about iPad New Generation 3? The main new features that attracted me is iPad3's Retina Display, iPhoto and 4G LTE capability. of course, new upgrade of A5x Chip that maintain the smooth fluid Graphic Interface and Battery Life.

When compared with iPad 2, iPad 3 now equipped with High-resolution Retina display [2048-by-1536-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi)] Which has a million more pixels than an HDTV. It is good to view High resolution video especially images.

iPad3 5-megapixel iSight Camera now with Face Detection on still images, video recording with HD (1080p) up to 30 frames per second with audio. Including video stabilization too.

With iPad3 larger f/2.4 aperture you can have brighter and better image at night. Getting closer to create the bokeh effects. With the five-element lens, it captures light efficiently to produce a sharper overall image. And the hybrid infrared filter will keeps out harmful IR light for more accurate, uniform colors.

According to Apple, the A5X Chip is the one that made Retina Display possible (higher resolutuion) while preserving 10 hours of battery life in iPad 2.

I guess the next generation of iPad will have the A6 Chip? or A5SX?

Comparison of iPad 3 with iPad 2:
No doubt iPad 3 is better than iPad2 from the spec of hardware for screen display, camera and wireless connectivity. The screen size has been maintained and it's just a little bit heavier. The thickness of iPad 3 has been increased from 8.8mm to 9.4mm. With an additional 50g on weight. iPad3 iSight Camera definitely is a good news for people who like to take photos and video and I can't wait to test it out when it arrive in Malaysia's apple store.

Currently the price for iPad 3 is $100 more expensive than iPad 2 (currently selling at USD $399).

iPad 3 +Wi-Fi 16GB $499 [RM 1500++]
iPad 3 +Wi-Fi 32GB $599 [RM1800++]
iPad 3 +Wi-Fi 64GB $699 [RM2100++]

iPad 3 with Wi-Fi + 4G 16GB $629 [RM1890]
iPad 3 with Wi-Fi + 4G 32GB $729 [RM2190]
iPad 3 with Wi-Fi + 4G 64GB $829 [RM2790]

If you are a vivid apple fans I am sure you wont read my opinion about iPad3. However, now you can have new gadget to compare with iPad 3. For example Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 with smaller screen size but with Super AMOLED Display. I personally like a gadget where I can hold using both hand and type freely on the screen and of course it is a lot lighter than iPad 3. Now it all depends on what kind of tablet you like to have. A tablet with larger screen, heavier or smaller screen and lighter with different OS but similar capability.

Now you can choose, a tablet with larger resolutions, better camera, bulkier, heavier or a tablet with smaller size, ordinary camera, lighter but with Super AMOLED Display. I can't do final justification until I get my hands on BOTH gadgets. Now I have Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 with be but will need some time to get an iPad3 for comparison.

Between, what's your opinion on iPad3? Is it worth to ungrade from iPad2? Comment below!
