Apple's new iPad officially launches in India, prices start at Rs. 30,500

If you’ve been diligently waiting for the new iPad to arrive in India, then your wait has finally ended. Today, Apple launches their third generation iPad or simply, new iPad in India and it will be available across the country in all Apple authorized outlets. The new iPad brings with it a host of new features like the Retina Display, a much better camera and faster quad-core graphics. The pricing hasn’t changed since the last time we reported it and here it is once more, in case you missed it the first time. The brand has also dropped the prices of the iPad 2 in India with the 16GB Wi-Fi version available for Indian Rupee symbol.svg 24,500 and Indian Rupee symbol.svg 32,900 for the 16GB Wi-Fi + 3G model.

The Retina display on the new iPad features a 2048x1536 resolution, 44 per cent greater colour saturation and about 3.1 million pixels, in the same 9.7-inch space. That’s four times the number of pixels in iPad 2. Those pixels are so close together; your eyes can’t discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance. This makes the picture appear a lot more natural and it’s also a lot easier on the eyes. The Retina display on the new iPad wouldn’t be possible without the new and powerful A5X chip. Its quad-core graphics processing makes everything you do on the iPad feel incredibly responsive. From the little things like swiping, scrolling and pinching to the big things like editing photos in the new iPhoto, applying titles and transitions in iMovie and, of course, playing games. Finally we come to the camera – a 5MP iSight shooter that features a backside illumination sensor. This gives it the ability to capture great-looking pictures whether by sunlight or candlelight. Autofocus, tap to focus and tap to set exposure functions are present and there’s built-in face detection that automatically balances focus and exposure across up to 10 faces.

We’ve had a crack at the new iPad and compared it to the iPad 2. It may not be a huge upgrade if you already have an iPad 2 but if you’re looking to invest in a tablet, then the new iPad is definitely one of the best in the market.
