iPad3 with 'Retina Display' Coming in March

 Apple is holding an event in March where the company will introduce its latest iPad 3. The next generation iPad will have faster chips and better graphics, Xinhua reported quoting the technology news site AllThingsD. The report states, “Sources say the company has chosen the first week in March to debut the successor to the iPad 2, and will do so at one of its trademark special events. The event will be held in San Francisco, presumably at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Apple’s preferred location for big announcements like these”.

The new tablet, which will probably be named iPad 3, will feature a Retina Display or something close to it. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S have Retina Display. As the human eye can only see around 300 pixels per inch, the screen of these smartphones have 326 pixels per inch, making texts and images look more similar to a high quality printed version.

The AllThingsD report adds, the device will be similar in form factor to the iPad 2, but will be running a much faster chip, sporting an improved graphics processing unit, and featuring a 2048×1536 Retina Display. The Apple spoke person has not commented anything about the timing of the event and the availability of this new device in stores.

It expected that the device will follow the same schedule as that of the iPad 2, which was available in stores about a week after the event. All Indian Apple fans can hope that iPad3 will be released soon in India.
