I am so glad I waited

Apple iPad Hero, the New Ipad
Today March 7th 2001 is another historic day for bloggers and technophiles, such as the Segbwema blogger, Sheku Sheriff, who have been waiting patiently for the release of the much anticipated iPad 3, dubbed by apple as the The New iPad or by enthusiasts as the Ipad HD. The iPad HD will make blogging fun and a breeze.

As someone who has been an apple watcher for a long time, I told a few of my friends that I would never by an initial apple product, as it was always an experimental product that was aimed at finding out what people really desired in a product and later coming out with a 3rd or 4th generation product that would meet the expectations of the buying public.

Most people wonder why Apple is such a successful firm. The simple reason is that Apple makes what people want through regular yearly releases of totally reworked products. Where other firm re-wrap old products in new skins with minor enhancements, Apple releases, though frequent,  are usually a marked improvement upon earlier generations and concentrate on those things consumers complain were lacking in the old versions.

iPhone 4S
The New iPad has a screen resolution of  2048 x1536-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi), while the iPad 2 had a screen resolution of  1024-by-768-pixel resolution at 132 pixels per inch (ppi). This gives the New iPad a picture and video display quality that is simply mind blowing to the viewer. In essence the retina display on the iPhone 4, which makes picture and video so crisp and clear on the iPhone 4 has been brought to the New iPad. The amazing technological breakthrough is that Apple has been able to achieve this feat without any loss of power or compromise in battery life. Apple has also managed to keep the price of the New iPad within the old price range of the iPad 2. 

The New iPad is more powerful. Games and apps run smoother and faster with graphics that are simply unparalleled. Those firms who have been playing catch up to the highly successful iPad 2 must be heaving sighs of despair. It is like being continually unable to defeat the fastest hundred meters sprinter in Freetown, Sierra Leone and suddenly facing the prospect of being put on the tracks against Usain Bolt, the fastest sprinter in the whole wide world.

When the first generation iPad came out, I remember the secretary general of Tegloma International Federation, Jeneba Bangura, famously saying that there were no women at Apple for naming the tablet the iPad, a name similar to a popular female product. She had little enthusiasm about the success of the device. I know that Jeneba would not make the same statement today. 

If ever there was a laptop killer, this is simply it and unless Microsoft comes up with some quick answer they are in serious trouble. Specifications about the New iPad can be obtained on Apple's website at
