IOS: The New iPad…

So, first off I’d like to apologise for the lack of posts in the last couple of days- I haven’t been keeping a descent post count up. Anyway, onto the topic of this post- the new iPad. That’s what Apple has dubbed it too. It’s not the iPad 3 or iPad HD, just ‘the new iPad’… This seems to be shying away from Apple’s traditional names and taking a new approach. To me, this really missed the mark as the creativity in naming is gone- is this setting the example for Apple products to come?

As for features, as of the Apple press conference in San Francisco, we know a whole lot about this new product. Apple have been very transparent with this release. We are currently being teased with 4G, a ultra high resolution HD Retina display, A5X CPU and a new camera. These sound rather interesting, although not aren’t revolutionising the tablet, the new features should set the bar for other manufacturers to catch up to.

Pricing is not too bad, starting at $539 for a WiFi only 16GB model in Australia, due for a February 16 release. The iPad 2 has received a huge price drop as well. We’ll keep you updated with more news and rumours here on The Gaming Aperture.
