New iPad: 8 reasons not to call it iPad 3

Do not call more iPad 3, but the new iPad. 2012 version of the tablet from Apple unveiled last night by TIm Cook is nothing really revolutionary, but offers some nice changes especially as its Retina display. Here are the main novelties.
Not so new that?

Everyone expected the iPad 3 and there were new iPad. But the first big surprise of the evening for the name of the new Apple tablet. There will be no iPad 3 or iPad HD, but a "New iPad". A name that could plunge users into confusion, especially in stores. Aesthetics are identical, although New iPad is 0.6 mm thicker and heavier than 51 grams. The radius of novelties, surprises are few. A new screen Retina Display, a new 5 megapixel sensor, a new faster processors and faster and compatibility with the 4G. No feature particularly impressive, but Apple took the opportunity to unveil iOS 5.1 and iPhoto, a new application for managing the photos on the shelf of the U.S. firm. Overview of this new "New iPad" in pictures.

Retina Display screen

Expected for several months, the new third screen iPad name is passed to the "Retina Display". An impressive resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, 264 pixels per inch, since the size of the screen is 9.7 inches. 3.1 million pixels, nearly a million more pixels than the Full HD 1080p! Add for completeness that saturation was improved by 44% according to Apple.

iPad Siri

Siri was previously only available on iPhone 4S, the latest smartphone from the Cupertino company. If the new iPad boasts many a voice command function, it is not a Siri itself. Indeed, this is a system of "Dictation" as indicated by Apple, which will write an email, send a text message, search the Web or take notes using voice. Twitter will also be compatible with the Siri-like, accessible from the keyboard of the iPad via a dedicated icon. Note that third-party applications can use futures Dictation.
