Apple has announced the new iPad. First up is the new retina display, kicking out a 2048 x 1536 resolution with 3.1 million pixels and 264 pixels per inch. Existing apps will be scaled up, with text getting a higher resolution.
Under the hood is the A5X processor with quad core graphics. Also new is the iSight camera, which features auto-focus, 5 megapixel backside-illuminated sensor with 1080p stabilized video. The front camera is still VGA, which is going to look awful on that lovely new screen.
The new iPad will also support 4G, although the UK won’t be able to use that feature yet.
Now for the prices:
- £399 16GB
- £479 32GB
- £559 64GB
Wi-Fi + 4G:

- £579 32GB

The iPad 2 will still be on sale in 16GB form for £329 (WiFi) and £429 (WiFi and 3G).
