Hello Geeks! Welcome to the first edition of “THE G WEEK” (You can call it as “The Gadgets Week”), your weekly Gadgets and Technology updates. This is Faz, a Gadgetic Master, from GadgeticWorld. I will get you the latest happenings in the world of Gadgets and Technology from around the world every weekend.
THE BIG STORIES
The new iPad
Starting with the biggest launch of this week, “The new iPad” from Apple is assumed to be the smartest and most advanced iPad ever made. It is basically an upgrade to their popular, iPad 2 which was released on March 2011. Amidst all speculations and hype on iPad 3, Apple launched “The new iPad” on 7th March 2012. Uh.oh. I forgot to mention, Apple actually forgot to name their product and called it as “The new iPad” or it can be assumed as “The new Apple Innings” after Steve’s demise.
Apple calls it a revolutionary product for its 2048X1536 resolution on a 9.7 inch screen. This sums up to a healthy 264 PPI. The camera is now upgraded to 5MP and the front facing cam also produces nice images. The rear cam uses the same technology as the iPhone 4s does and the cam is now able to shoot 1080p videos too. It is finally going to release on 16th of March in United States. Check out Mr. Dash’s Post: All You Need To Know About The New IPad !!! where he writes in details about the tablet.
Below is the TV Commercial which has now become viral in the web after the launch of the new iPad.
