Apple iPad 4 9.7” 64 GB Tablet with Wi-Fi and 4G


The iPad 4 was released a mere 7 months after its predecessor, the iPad 3, which begs the question, has Apple developed a tab that is the pinnacle of innovation, or is it a power-play move to test Android? Well, let’s take another bite out of this apple.

Quite surprisingly, the iPad 4 doesn’t have significant upgrades compared to the iPad 3; the display, design and the primary camera are identical.

However, it does boast a new, more powerful A6X chipset (2x faster than the iPad 3’s chipset) and a Lightning port, which if you have an iPhone 5, makes this tab the perfect partner, allowing for seamless compatibility.

The screen and resolution (1536 x 2048 pixels) and video capabilities are fantastic, although the same as the iPad 3.

It’s also important to mention that the tab supports 4G/LTE network speed, which is a big plus. So, the question is, is it better than the iPad 3? In the end, even though there aren’t significant upgrades, the iPad 4 does – slightly – edge out its predecessor.
