Guess, what tablet will be the killer of Apple's iPad? Our geeks say - next New iPad. Surprised? OK, whether Apple's competitors like it or do not, we face the iPad's world. Every next generation of this iconic tablet brings changes to physical and technical characteristics of this remarkable device, the only device that deserves to be called tablet at the moment, we are bold to say. There is nothing more "tablettitan" other than next new iPad. However should you have an itch for the newest one? We think that you should answer this question by yourself. Anyway, our geeks have build an iPad technical specs matrix to help you to find differences between all generations of Apple tablet.
Using Geekbench 2 our geeks has benchmarked iPad 4 against iPad 3. In a nutshell, iPad 4 shows roughly 2x performance at the same battery life. Significant difference, that comes from the new A6X CPU. When running, iPad3 is noticeably hotter. This "overheating" is not critical and may be mitigated by decreasing the brightness of iPad3 display. We would recommend to run iPad3 at about 30 - 40 % of its full brightness.
So, what's the most remarkable thing about new iPad 4? Do you still think about its retina display? We can argue it is not. No doubt HD-quality display makes iPad more attractive to look at, say, than iPad 2 but not iPad 3. But, it requires considerably heavier files pertaining to graphics in all apps adapted to this display. The real streak of Apple tablet is A6X chip that improves performance against iPad 3, let alone ipad 2 / original iPad. Also worth a highlight the Bluetooth 4.0 Smart Ready connectivity feature of both iPad 4 and ipad 3 that adds value for remote-monitoring medical apps that can communicate with relevant sensors.
Owners of the iPad 2 may decide to upgrade from their older model. As to ipad 3 the difference in speed compared to iPad 4 is noticeable. So, for those who were only dreaming about tablets we would certainly recommend to take steps into this post-PC territory and buy iPad 4.
