新iPad - 它是“决定性的”

+$Apple has just announced the newIPad的+$- no number this time, just the 'new' bit - and it largely lives up to+$the speculation we told you about earlier+$. It doesn't have the haptic feedback that, frankly, we were more than a little sceptical about, but much of the other speculation was right on the money. It's a fine-looking piece of kit but nothing revolutionary; instead, Apple suggests, it's "resolutionary".

+$That's down to the much-anticipated Retina display, packing a ludicrous 2048 x 1536 pixels that makes it impossible, we understand, to distinguish individual pixels at more than around 15 inches away. Madness; it's a higher resolution than the desktop PC we're writing this up on and the HDTV we'll be settling down to watch once we've posted this story.

+$Another headline is a new iSight camera replacing the not-especially good rear camera on the iPad 2. It'll record 1080p video and take 5 megapixel images, has a five-element lens, auto-face detection, auto focus lock and image stabilisation. Plus the new iPad features voice dictation for those of you who enjoy talking to your tech.

+$It's roughly the same size as the iPad 2 with the same battery life, and we anticipate similar complaints to the iPad 4S launch, in that it's not the massive advance over the iPad 2 that some people dreamed of. Just look at the resolution, though. Bigger than the maximum resolution of a

New iPad

+$Especially since Apple also showed off the new iPad version ofIPhoto中,一个应用+$that seems to do most of what Photoshop Touch does and a lot more besides. Available now for £2.99, it features multi-touch editing and plenty of effects, as well as effects brushes. It doesn't have Photoshop Touch's selection tools, however.

+$Also shown was a new vector app from Autodesk: Sketchbook Ink. Available from April, details are sparse at the moment but it looks intuitive and powerful; could it be the Illustrator surrogate that we've been waiting for? We can't wait to have a go on it and let you know.

+$So, the price? For the basic wi-fi model you're starting at £399 for 16GB, up to £559 for 64GB, and if you want the fancy 4G model it's £100 more across the board.+$You can pre-order now+$(although the store seems to be a little overloaded at the moment), and it goes on sale on 16 March. See you in the queue.
