week in review Apple unveiled a new iPad, resetting the goal line again even as competitors scramble to catch up in the burgeoning market for tablets.
The new iPad--not the "iPad HD" or "iPad 3" as previously rumored--offers a higher-resolution Retina Display similar to that of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. It offers a resolution of 2,048x1,536--or 3.1 million pixels. It also features an updated processor--which the company boasted was four times as fast as the nearest competition--as well as a 4G connection.
Apple also cut the price of two models of the iPad 2 in an effort to stay competitive with lower-priced options.
The company is also bringing iPhoto, already found on MacBooks, to the iPad. Apple executives showed off the editing capabilities of the new iPhoto app and said it would work with photos up to 19 megapixels.
As expected, the company unveiled a new Apple TV set-top box. While the exterior hardware looks nearly identical to the old model's, several new features were announced, including the addition of 1080p movies and TV shows from iTunes Store and a redesigned 1080p user interface.
