Apple announces fourth-generation iPad, with twice as powerful graphics

iPad Mini also announced.

Apple’s Phil Schiller, during a presentation today, announced a brand new iPad, just 7 months after the last model came out. Regarding the product, he said that the “fourth-generation iPad” will have a ten-hour battery life and significantly more powerful graphics than the iPad 3, which was released in March.

It will use an A6 chip—with double the performance of the third iPad’s A5 chip, Apple says—and the Lightning connector pin announced last month with the iPhone 5. The fourth-gen iPad will also have the same price and configurations as the third iPad. It comes in both black and white.

We also have a very informative graph for you. Take from it what you will.

iPad Mini was also announced. It boasts a 7.9-inch display, and has the same 1,024 x 768 resolution as the iPad 2. The new hardware is 7.2mm thick, .68 pounds heavy and has been manufactured with a new process with the same anodized edges as the iPhone 5. “While Phil Schiller didn’t mention the Nexus 7 or Google directly, he compared the new device against its rival in terms of its app library and screen size. He claimed that the .9-inch increase in diagonal space gives Apple’s slate 35 percent more display area than Google and ASUS’ collaboration.

    The only Vita competitor at the moment is the 3DS. A device with absolutely no buttons, not to mention dual sticks, can’t be considered a competitor to the Vita, simply because this alone screams they’re not targeted at the same audience.

    whats the point, seriously!
    apple are starting to turn into antivision!
    not only are they releasing replacements WAY too early, i mean the 3 just came out in march for crying out loud!
    but all their doing for the replacement is twice the power, i mean really is that all?
    what happened to the apple who released products every 2 years or so, and each time they did they reinvented the wheel?
    i always said the death of steve jobs would be the death of apple, but they did not have to prove it to me!
