While the whole world is expecting iPad 3’s release on Mar 07th, 2012, they are not disappointed, and actually, people are more kind of surprised because it is New iPad, officially the 3rd-generation of iPad, but just not iPad 3, sounds like a word puzzle, I know!
In New iPad, what you can see is the splendid and superior display effect, it makes a new way to see everything like never before: four times more pixels than iPad 2, razor-sharp text, richer colors, lifelike and detailed details.
What you can not see is the advanced technology behind the scenes, which Apple called it Retina display. The Retina display on the new iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution, 44 percent greater color saturation, and an astounding 3.1 million pixels — in the same 9.7-inch space. That’s four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an HDTV.
To achieve this crystal clear display effect, Apple engineers have made a breakthrough technology to separate the pixels from signals, which will not cause the crossover of the two, and therefore, the picture quality does not have to be sacrificed.
As usual, you can see millions of iBooks, photos, emails and videos in a variety of formats on New iPad, to be specific, the New iPad supports the following audio and video formats:
|Audio Formats Supported||HE-AAC (V1 and V2), AAC (8 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Store), MP3 (8 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, and 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, and AAX+), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV|
