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 2048x1536 retina display, which is 3.1 million pixels. By comparison, a 1080p display has 1920x1080 resolution. For more of the math behind retina displays, check out our post by Richard Gaywood. 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 dictation, 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.
