The tablet takes the place of the hugely popular iPad 2 with some great new features, the highlight of which is the 5MP iSight camera. It may still be withour a flash, but its backside- illuminated sensor will greatly improve the imade quality. Apple has also introduced the impressive retina display. The new iPad has a staggering 3.1 million pixels condensed into the screen, giving a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536, which is more than any tablet and even an HDTV. The third- generation iPad starts at just $ 499 for the Wi- Fi- only version.

Along with the new tablet, Apple has released new and updated apps, key among them being iPhoto. This brings the Mac photo application to the iPad, and tailors its features to the touch screen. iPhoto is available for just $ 4.99 from the App Store, and combined with the new iPad’s camera, Apple has given us a great way to shoot, edit and share while on the move.
