What's new about the new iPad?

Apple made its first major product announcement since the death of Steve Jobs with the new iPad, writes John Breeden in a report for the GCN Lab. .

"The biggest new feature, which had been guessed by most people long before the official announcement, was the greater screen resolution. The new iPad will have a 2,047-by-1,537 display, or 3.1 million pixels. That’s much more than the iPad 2 with its 1,024-by-768 display," Breeden writes.

The newest version boasts some other improvements too, including to its network speed and camera capabilities.

"The new iPad is about what I expected," he writes. "It boils down to a new iPad with three improved features over the existing model: a better (and apparently amazing) display, the ability to work on 4G networks if you happen to be lucky enough be in an area that supports it, and a greatly improved camera, which is a nice touch to go with the display.
