The new iPad is here. Apple unveiled a new version of its hit tablet on Wednesday, adding more power, an optional 4G Internet connection, and a supersharp HD display, but keeping the overall look and feel of the previous model.
Apple CEO Tim Cook and other company execs showed the device at a media event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, Calif. (Check Apple's stock price here.)
High-Resolution Retina Display
As expected, the new iPad features a screen with roughly twice the resolution of the iPad 2. The Retina display, as Apple calls it, first debuted in the iPhone 4 and quickly drew raves for its crisp, detailed images. The iPad's 2048x1536 display makes it the first Apple tablet able to show movies in full HD.
