New iPad 'miles ahead' of other tablets - [Video]

Apple’s new iPad is ahead of other Tablets …

Apple on Wednesday unveiled a new iPad, the third iteration of its best-selling tablet. The gadget will land in stores on March 16, with its entry-level price remaining the same as the current model: $499 for a version with 16 GB of storage.

The new iPad’s flashiest feature is that it will sport a “retina display” previously only available on the iPhone. The pixels on retina display are so tiny that they’re imperceptible to the human eye, Apple claims. The new iPad screen has 3.1 million pixels, one million more than a 1080p high-definition screen of that size would.

Nearly 13.2% of the U.S. population will use an iPad at least once per month this year, according to an eMarketer forecast.
