The New iPad launched today in the UK and London saw queues that have been a common sight across the world as people wait to get their hands on the latest piece of kit from Apple. The major new improvement in this iteration of the iPad is the screen resolution which has been upped to 2480×1536 and provides a retina display which is wowing users.
People are very fanatical when it comes to Apple products and the first person to buy one at the London Regent Street stored queued for five days to ensure he’d be the first to get his hands on one. Not everyone queuing to simply own their own iPad though. A woman in America was queuing with the intention of selling her space for $1000. The gadget site ifixit.com flew to Australia to take advantage of the difference in time zones and get their very own iPad. Their purpose was different to others though as they didn’t even turn it on. Straight away they took a screwdriver to it to have a look at the insides and view the processors, circuit board surface mount technology and all the other parts that make up the New iPad.
For those who are using the product the way it was intended, the improved screen is getting rave reviews with it being described as “It’s stunning. It’s incredible” and “It has the most spectacular display I have ever seen in a mobile device”. I’m looking forward to setting my eyes on one soon.
