The Apple iPad 3, or simply iPad, as it is officially called, is Apple's latest foray in the contemporary tablet market - a market the company single-handedly started about two years ago. Although the third-generation iPad remains the same on the outside (not a bad thing), it does bring a lot of improvements on the inside. First of all, it has a new screen resolution of 2048x1536 pixels, delivering an amazing for a tablet pixel density of 264 ppi. Another major improvement has to do with the processor of the device, which is now the so-called A5X - still a dual-core processor, but with a new quad-core GPU for outstanding graphics performance. The camera has also been given a boost and is now much more capable in terms of both photo- and video-taking.
