Besides the updates to iWork, iMovie and GarageBand, Apple also announced iPhoto for the iPad!
iPhoto will let you browse and edit photos on the iPad, especially those nice ones you can take with the new 5-megapixel camera.
iPhoto for the iPad will include tools like crop and auto-enhance. There’s alos a variety of effects and multi-touch editing. For all your DSLR owners, it supports up to a 19-megapixel photo. As an added bonus, you can even beam photos directly between devices.
It’ll be available today from the iOS App Store for US$4.99. It’s universal so you can install it on your iPad and your iPhone. It’ll also run on the iPad 2, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
The day has finally come. Apple has finally pulled the curtain on what they are calling as the “new iPad”, and we finally know for certain what the device has in store. Some of the more sensible rumors about the iPad 2′s successor – most of which were outlined in an earlier post – have come to fruition, and we have a roundup of everything new in the third-gen iPad as announced at this morning’s San Francisco press event right here.
Price and Features
As many have anticipated, the storage tiers – and their respective cost – remains the same as the previous-generation iPad, even factoring in the new 4G LTE support; basically, there are WiFi models, and there are WiFi + 4G + 3G models. Coming in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB flavors, the new iPad starts at $499 at the base model and goes up to $829 for the 64GB WiFi + 4G + 3G model.
As rumored, the new iPad now has support for 4G LTE. 4G-enabled devices will be available
As widely rumored, the new iPad models (one for Verizon and one for AT&T) announced today will offer several varieties of high-speed cellular wireless networking.
iPads sold for use with those two carriers, plus Rogers, Bell and Telus in Canada, will work with an alphabet soup of fast connections: the 3G EVDO and HSPA standards (also on the iPad 2) plus the newer HSPA+, DC-HSDPA and LTE standards.
All three of the newer standards are speed demons when compared to the 3G technologies. HSPA+ tops out at a theoretical maximum of 21 Mbps download speeds, and DC-HSDPA can hit a screaming 42 Mbps. Neither of them can stand up to LTE, however, which (in theory) can hit a scary-fast 73 Mpbs of downlink speed. If you think the carrier networks are congested now, here’s some crystal ball forecasting: wait six months.
After months of anticipation, Apple has announced the third generation of the iPad.
Prices are (all USD) $499/$599/$699 for Wi-Fi-only models in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. Models with LTE 4G cost $629/$729/$829 respectively for the same capacities.
The new iPad has a 2048×1536 retina display, which is 3.1 million pixels. By comparison, a 1080p display has 1920×180 resolution. It also has an A5X processor and quad-core graphics, iSight Camera with a 5-megapixel backside camera, 5-element lens, IR filter and ISP built into the processor and 1080p video recording. Other features include voice recording, which isn’t quite the Siri that everyone was expecting, but does support English (US, British, Australian), French, German and Japanese.
The new iPad will be available with 4G LTE on AT&T, Verizon, Rogers, Bell and Telus in the US and Canada. It will be able to be a personal hotspot if the carrier supports it.
Earlier today at the iPad media event, Phil Schiller announced that the new iPad will feature voice dictation.
Users will find a new microphone button on the keyboard. Give it a tap and start speaking, much like you do with the iPhone 4S.
As of the announcement, voice dictation on the new iPad supports US English, British, Australian, French, German and Japanese.
