With a name that was once mocked as Apple’s entry into “feminine hygiene products,” the iPad has become yet another of the brand’s ubiquitous, can’t-live-without-it devices. Just a couple hours ago, Apple announced the release of their third-generation iPad. Apple’s website is calling it simply the New iPad. The greatest advancements in this new version are in the display. Driven by a smoking new A5X chip, powering 3.1 million pixels, it is hands down the sharpest, most high definition display ever. It is literally four-times better than the iPad2. The new iSight camera is also a major upgrade. We could go on but we know you just want to see the video. It’s all pretty awesome, try not to hemorrhage.
