Apple launched the new iPad this week. The main features are the new Retina screen and the faster processor. I think the Retina screen upgrade is a huge deal for a photographer such as myself as it allows an improved viewing experience of photos that are downloaded from the camera to the iPad, as well as observing of the photos that are on the iPad or online that are stored in a high resolution format. I think that the extra $100 over the regular iPad is worth the price of admission for this new iPad.
The iPad’s marketing and webpage provide good insight into the improvements in this screen. I am likely going to buy one – my first iPad, as a result of the move to this new screen.
