In my earlier post I had reviewed Apple MacBook Air as well as iMac. Today I will be reviewing Apple’s new Tablet PC i.e. iPad 4. iPad is really an amazing device that you must have as it can serve you the purpose of both i.e. Laptop PC as well as a mobile phone. Compared to laptops, tablets are the clear winners due to the accessibility and easy portability provided by them.
So without wasting any time, let’s find out more about the new Apple iPad 4 which was launched merely few months after launching of iPad 3.

Apple iPad 4 Features:
iPad 4 is really very much same to the old iPad 2 and I think it would be difficult for you to distinguish between the both when switched off. Before we get on the other features of iPad 4, one of the most important feature worth discussing is: The Retina Display. Now you must be thinking that what is this Retina Display?
Actually Retina Display is a brand name used by Apple for liquid crystal displays in which they claim that have an enough pixel and resolution density – roughly 300 or more pixels per inch that the human eye is unable to notice pixilation at a typical viewing distance. This typical distance varies in case of each device. For iPhone and iPod it is 10 inches and in case of iPad it is nearly 15 inches.

The new iPad 4 has a wide 9.7 inch LED-backlit Multi-Touch Diagonal display with IPS technology. iPad 4 is a little heavier (60 gm) than iPad 2. This version of iPad has 1536 X 2080 resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi). It also has a Fingerprint-resistant oleo-phobic coating to protect the screen.
The new iPad, as I already told you is a bit thicker and heavier than the iPad 2. The new iPad 4 comes in two models : One is with WiFi and the latter is WiFi + Cellular. The weight of both is 652 gm and 662 gm respectively. There is also the new lightening dock connector, curved edges and the oleo-phobic scratch-proof glass. One the whole it greatly resembles iPad 2.
Hardware and Software
iPad 4 still has only 4 buttons on it. The home button and the power button are on the same location as before. Also there are two buttons on the right side of the iPad 4, one is for Silent/Screen rotation lock and the other one is for Volume up and down.
The new iPad 4 is loaded up with the latest iOS 6 and is loaded with many new features. It is powered up by Dual-core A6X processor with quad-core graphics.
Storage and Other Features
The new iPad 4 is available in storage capacity of 16, 32 and 64 GB.
One notable change that had occurred is that the Camera has been replaced from 0.7 MP to 5 MP iSight Camera. The new Camera includes many features like Auto-focus, Face detection, Backside illumination, Photo and Video Geo-tagging.

Other features include Three-axis gyro, Acceleration, Ambient light sensor, Digital compass and Assisted GPS and GLONASS.
We have got iPad 4 only few months after launching of iPad 3. At the whole, the new iPad is really a great device. The thing that we liked most is Retina Display, SD card add-on facility and of-course its design despite of being a bit heavier than the previous one. The immense number of features offered by iPad 4 which make it a highly recommended device.
