iPad3 Specifications and Pricing information released

Today, held their iPad event to introduce the new device being released March 16th. The iPad3 has a bunch of great new features as well as being the first Apple device to support 4G LTE speeds! The A5X dual-core processor that we reported earlier this week has also been confirmed. The new iPad will also contain the dictation portion of Siri, although the rest of the Siri functionality is still limited to the iPhone4S.

For the photographers and videographers, I think you will be pleased to learn that the new iPad also totes a 5mp camera, meaning you can now record up to 1080P for video. This will be great for those who like to shoot, edit and publish their videos all from the same device. The iPad3 is now available for pre-order from the Apple website. Pricing is indicated below:
