It was only this march Apple launched the ‘new’ iPad or what now should be called the 3rd generation iPad but already its shown the door witht today’s launch of 4th generation iPad.
The new reboot to the iPad brings in the lightning port instead of the old 30-pin connector, and a new A6X processor with twice the graphics performance of the outgoing iPad. With the iPhone 5 sporting the new lightning port, it was natural the rest of the Apple portfolio will follow suit.
Already twitter is abuzz with tweets equating iPad 4 upgrade to iPhone 3S upgrade.
I wonder what would those ‘new’ iPad buyers (iPad 3) folks be thinking of their now phased out model’s short life!
With new processor on-board, the iPad 4 doubles the CPU and graphics performances along with a battery life of 10 hours. It also sports a 720p facetime camera. The base model with 16GB storage and WiFi is priced at $499 as before and the 16 GB cellular model comest at $629, similar to the outgoing model.
