Tech Minute: What Sets The iPad 3 Apart

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Apple’s new iPad is having perhaps the strongest launch yet, with 3 million sold right off the bat.

Peter Vossler, with Best Buy, says there are plenty of new features that Apple fans really love.

One of the biggest new features is that is can work on a 4G signal.

The new and improved screen is also driving sales. Vossler showed off some ultra-high definition video he downloaded from NASA, to better show off the screen resolution.

Vossler said there are a million more pixels on the new iPad screen than there are on your HDTV at home. There isn’t any hand held device in the world with more pixels, Vossler said.

The camera that comes with the new iPad can also take video in 1080p resolution.

The iOS 5 operating system has the most apps as well, Vossler said, showing off an app that takes dictation from spoken word.

It can do this all with the same battery life as the iPad before it. Apple says it’ll last 10 hours.
