The all new iPad!!!

Hello Readers,

Today I would like to talk about Apple's new announcement, the all-new iPad. Yes, that is the name, "The all new iPad". After seeing that name, I wondered how it was possible for Apple to give this new device such a generic name. Maybe a new name will come along with time? At this point we may only speculate this trivial matter. I will be covering all the changed aspects of the new iPad, starting with the display. 

The new iPad's QXGA display now has a resolution of 2,048x1,536 pixels. That's an important change given that it exceeds any current tablet or laptop currently on the market. 
Sure, the new resolution is substantially higher than the current Retina Display on the iPhone 4 and 4S (960x640 pixels), but that's largely to be expected given the iPad's larger screen size (9.7 inches vs, 3.5 inches). Yet, if Apple does what is should and increases the display size in the iPhone 5 I'd look for the resolution to improve, as well. It likely won't be a big jump, and I think that Apple will stick with the "Retina Display" concept, but a change would be in order. Apple, after all, continues to bank its mobile devices partly on display resolution so there's no reason to expect that it's going to stand still.
Form factor, and design
Some users my gripe that the new iPad sports the same design as its predecessors, but that's fine with me. And outside of adding the aforementioned larger display, I'd say the same about the iPhone. We've heard a lot of rumors about a thinner iPhone or handset with a tapered profile, but I'm not aching for either. A thinner iPhone is a possibility, I guess, but Apple will trim it down only if it can still fit a long-lasting battery.

By all accounts, the presence of LTE in the new iPad foretells real 4G in the next iPhone. That will mean, of course, significantly faster data speeds beyond what current iPhones offer (and that includes the HSPA+ network on AT&T's "4G" iPhone 4S). Though it's not surprising that Apple is late to the LTE party--typically, the company waits to implement a new technology until it can offer the user experience it really wants--but given the flood of LTE handsets over the last few months it is lagging quite behind its rivals. So in other words, it's overdue.
A big question, though, is whether all carriers will get an LTE iPhone. Verizon Wireless and AT&T will have it for sure, but Sprint is uncertain at this point.

More battery life
Apple made a pretty bold promise when it said that the new iPads will deliver 9 hours of battery life on 4G. As any LTE smartphone owner can tell you, the faster data networks don't do wonders for battery life. The Motorola Razr Maxx, however, changed that equation so Apple will have to keep up. Hopefully, the LTE iPad is a sign of long LTE battery life to come.

The new iPad's processor remains dual-core, but Apple upgraded it to an A5X and ramped up the graphics processor to quad-core. The iPhone 4S already has a dual-core CPU so I don't expect a big change there. Yes, we just saw a slew of new quad-core phones at Mobile World Congress, but for the reason stated above (Apple wanting the "right" experience before adding a new technology), I don't see a quad-core chip ending up in the iPhone 5. On the other hand, better graphics are a possibility so that may follow.
As with any Apple device, we'll have to wait until the actual unveiling to see what wonders the next iPhone will hold. But after this week's news we we can tell that the company is heading for a faster, longer, and more vibrant iPhone future.
P.S: My local GameStop is sold out of Mass Effect 3, that article may take a while to come.

What do you guys think?
