The new iPad is here! And yes, that seems to be its official name. After months of speculation over its name (iPad 3 or iPad HD), Apple decided to throw the public a curveball and leave the new iPad, well…nameless.
Despite its lack of fancy title, Apple’s newest tablet has some pretty nice upgrades from the iPad2, including retina display, which means higher resolution, more accurate colors and sharper images. The new iPad also has a new rear camera upgraded from a 1 megapixel to a 5, shoots 1080p high definition video, and it’s 4G compatible for a faster connection.
The 16 GB Wi-Fi only version is $499, and if you’re looking for the 4G option, that starts at $629.
Monthly data plans for the new iPad start at $14.99 for a 250 MB plan at AT&T Wireless and $20 for a 1 GB plan at Verizon Wireless. If you don’t even have the iPad 2 yet and looking to upgrade from the original iPad, the price of the iPad2 has dropped to $399.
