Apple's new iPad: 5 'unique' features

As with any new Apple product launch, rumours and sightings of an upcoming device fuelled many online debates, spawned several websites and filled many inboxes. This time, however, most of the predictions about the third-generation iPad were spot-on. The four major upgrades to the iPad are a super high-resolution screen (higher than even a full HD TV), a better camera for stills and full HD video, a faster processor with upgraded graphics capabilities and support for even faster 4G/ LTE wireless networks. 

The only unexpected change is that it's not called the iPad 3 or iPad HD, just the new iPad. But the name is not what the competition has to fear. After selling 55 million units in just 20 months and capturing over 73% of the tablet market, the iPad is now all set for its next innings . These are some things unique to the new iPad: 

Make beautiful music The GarageBand app lets four users connect their iPads together for a quick jam session. You can quickly record a song, add different tracks with various instruments, edit and export or upload it once done -- all on the device itself. 

A complete video studio in your hand The new camera and upgraded processor gives thenew iPad the ability to record 1080p (full HD) video. With the iMovie app, you can edit, package together professional transitions/effects and upload finished movies without external devices. 

Numerous connectivity options The new iPad includes support for 4G/LTE networks. If you're lucky enough to have a 4G/LTE network around, you can stream HD videos without buffering, upload 1080p videos effortlessly and share/stream large amounts of data to the cloud with ease. 

Enhance photography skills The iSight camera has a backit image sensor (for higher light sensitivity) and IR filter (for more accurate colours). And thanks to the new iPhoto app, you can apply effects like vignetting and adjust saturation with just a touch. Once you're done, you can create slideshows and upload or share them instantly. 

See better and clearer The new iPad gets a retina display. Individual pixels on the screen are smaller than the human eye can perceive. The display actually packs in more pixels than a full HD TV. All those pixels are crammed into a 9.7-inch display, giving it the highest pixel density screen on a mobile device. 

Why rivals should still fear iPad 2 The iPad 2 is no slouch: it has a blazing fast dual-core processor, dual cameras and a great 9.7-inch capacitive screen. There are literally hundreds of different accessories you can get for it. There are lakhs of fantastic apps that take advantage of the screen and the device's power. 

Besides, Apple has cut iPad 2 prices in India. The new starting price for the base 16GB Wi-Fi version is Rs 24,500 which can go down to an incredible Rs 20,000 ($399) if you can procure it from abroad.
