The imaginatively named ‘new iPad’ launches

New iPad © David PhelanThe most highly anticipated product launch of the year took place last night. Time Out’s gadgets editor, David Phelan got his hands on the new Apple iPad and here’s what he thought…

‘The new tablet looks almost identical to last year’s, though it’s fractionally heavier and a hair thicker. But the real difference is the screen – the new one has a display with four times higher resolution which has to be seen to be believed. It’s great for reading text, for instance, which is pin-sharp and video looks amazing. A more powerful processor means games can be faster, with richer graphics. And the new apps like iPhoto mean the new iPad, (not the iPad 3, you’ll note) is a great creativity tool, too. Prices start from £399 and it’s out on Friday March 16.’

Will you be queuing for one?
