Sources turned in a mixed performance on third-gen Apple iPad information
would come with an 8MP camera instead of the 5MP that will be on the tablet. Also way off was the information that the tablet would be called the Apple iPad HD. On the other hand, it is not the Apple iPad 3 either, it is simply called The new iPad. While the Apple iPad 2 will stay on as a lower priced model to compete with tablets like the Amazon Kindle Fire, Apple did not introduce a lower priced 7 inch model at this time although some of the speculation centered on such a device coming later this year. The jury is still out on that call.
Now that the introduction of The New iPad has been made, the rumors and speculation can be retired until we get closer to the introduction of the next-gen Apple iPhone.

lol. the apple ipad 2 starts at $399. twice the price of the kindle fire.
a more fair comparison would be the ipad 2 is a direct competitor with the new asus transformer.

yeah, better screen, improved GPU, camera (of which you don't get HD quality from the more important front camera)..
hhmm, already waiting for the Newer iPad to see what other slight specs increments they can offer..
