iPad 2 vs new iPad (iPad 3)

Ok, Apple fans out there… so there is no iPad3 right? The guys called it the New iPad. :D Like what we mentioned last night, it could be properly called the 3rd Gen. iPad.

So, let get down to the important specs since like the iPhone 4s – there were no change in the physical look. There were upgrade in the engine but not the body.

Here are my quick comparison of the 2 tablets.

Specs iPad2 New iPad3
Processor 1GHz Apple A5 chip dual-core processor Dual-core Apple A5X custom-designed, high-performance, low-power system-on-a-chip with quad-core graphics



9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology

1024-by-768-pixel resolution at 132 pixels per inch (ppi)

Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating

Support for display of multiple languages and characters simultaneously


Retina display

9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology

2048-by-1536-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi)

Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating

Support for display of multiple languages and characters simultaneously


Camera 720p Back Camera @ 30fps video recording
VGA front-facing camera 
5-megapixel iSight camera
Price USD399 (16G) USD499(16G)

Oh by the way, a Siri-sort of was also introduced here. It has 4G LTE, perfect for the Philippines since both Telcos are LTE ready now.

So there you go. Is it worth the upgrade? Are you keeping your iPad2 or start the Pre-order process now for the “New Ipad”?

Yay! Thank you so much for your support! Mabuhay!

    I think they did a great job in making the resolution bigger for the latest model. And as I’ve pointed out in similar posts out there, I would prefer a much higher-res camera with it, like 8mp or something in that range. That is one quick but concise table of comparison.. thanks!

    Hehe, trending na ang iPad 3. The latest ipad will definitely conquer the market once again. Baka mawala na nang tuluyan sa eksena ang PC kahit na anong upgrades pa gawin ng Microsoft.
