After months of speculation, rumours and raw hope, Apple have finally announced the brand new iPad in all its glory. The third generation model arrives with the expected Retina screen and full HD support, including iSight camera, revamped iLife applications and quad-core A5X processor to make sure it all runs smooth. The new screen is a welcomed addition, and certainly a due one considering the technology was available almost two years ago. With four times as many pixels as last year's iPad 2, the display is quite incredible, squeezing in resolution of 2048x1536, that's 3.1 million pixels in a 9.7 inch area.

It goes on sale March 16th worldwide, along side the iPad 2 which gets a new cheaper price as the 'low end' version. The naming ditches the numbering system, following suit of their iPods and iMacs, which makes more sense really, distinguishing models with generation and year. I am so tempted. Don't be surprised if you see it on my PURCHASES Page soon.

Other announcements at yesterday's event from San Francisco included new Apple TV with 1080p HD support, iTunes 10.6 equipped with full iCloud features, and Japanese Siri. Cool.
