Apple unveils iPad 3

Today, Apple unveiled the iPad 3.

The iPad 3 has:

- A better display
- 4G LTE support
- A 5MP Camera
- A5X chip (Dual core CPU, Quad core GPU)
  The quad core GPU means better gaming and greatly improved performance over the A5 chip.
- Siri Diction, but not Siri itself.

Oh yes, and the design and battery life are about the same as that of the iPad 2. It probably also has 1 GB ram.

So what are your thoughts?

Not to mention iOS 5.1 and a new version of iTunes (10.6) were unveiled.

iOS 5.1:

  • Japanese language support for Siri (availability may be limited during initial rollout)
  • Photos can now be deleted from Photo Stream
  • Camera shortcut now always visible on Lock Screen for iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch (4th generation)
  • Camera face detection now highlights all detected faces
  • Redesigned Camera app for iPad
  • Genius Mixes and Genius playlists for iTunes Match subscribers
  • Audio for TV shows and movies on iPad optimized to sound louder and clearer
  • Podcast controls for playback speed and a 30 second rewind for iPad
  • Updated AT&T network indicator
  • Addresses bugs affecting battery life
  • Fixes an issue that occasionally caused audio to drop for outgoing calls

And as usual, jailbreakers beware. 5.1 currently only has a semi-tethered jailbreak and only for A4 and earlier devices.
