To demonstrate the new appliance, with retina screen, more powerful graphics processor and compatibility with 4 g networks, the company's CEO, Tim Cook, He has recorded a doubt in the mind of most aficionados by brand and also wanting to venture into the world of tablets: the new iPad is worth?

As it is impossible to give a single answer to this question, because there are different needs and desires completely in each consumer, the INFO separated the main reasons for the adoption of favourable and unfavourable new gadget.

4 reasons why the new iPad is worth

1 – A5X Processor – During the presentation of the new iPad, Tim Cook noted that the tablet brings together the most advanced to the category. There Are, However, a “trick question” in this assertion. The new processor A5X maintains the same two cores of previous version. Its main difference are the four graphics processing units.

The tablet Transformer Prime, from Asus, for example, already have a quad-core processor 1,3 GHz and 12 graphics processing cores. Ken Brown, Nvidia's spokesperson, criticized the presentation of Apple not to provide the criteria for the comparison and the Tegra A5X 3. During the presentation, Tim Cook stated that the new processor is A5X 4 times faster graphics processing in that its competitor Tegra 3. Even with these controversial data, the processor represents an evolution in relation to the iPad 2. Para os fãs de games e vídeos em alta definição, the update is more than welcome.

2 – Retina screenA tela retina é a principal innovation do iPad. With the impressive density of 264 pixels per inch, the image quality is higher than presented in most TV sets available on the market, working with images Full HD (1.920 by 1.080 pixels). This means that a video in high-definition would be displayed with black outlines on the screen of the new iPad. In addition to the high amount of pixels, Apple promises a higher contrast ratio (in practice this brings blacker blacks) and higher fidelity color.

3 – iSight – Critical point in previous version, the camera has gone through a major update. Com 5 megapixels, the new iSight camera allows you to record videos in 1,080 p 30 frames per second, relies on detection of faces and image stabilizatWith. Commegapixelsixels, iPad camera 2 offered an negligible quality.
4 – LTE Network – Compatibility with the 4 g network is another strong point. Unlike HSPA , some Brazilian operators treat it as 4 g, the Long Term Evolution (LTE) is settling as the primary standard for high-speed wireless internet. With a large mesh of coverage in countries that will receive the iPad on the day 16 March, If Apple puts on the front line of high-performance navigation.
4 reasons why the new iPad is not worthy due
1 – Availability – The new iPad arrives in stores on the day 16 March in the United States, Germany, France, Japan, Canada, England, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia. A week later, on the day 23, more 26 countries will receive the tablet. Still no information about the beginning of sales in Brazil. The new device can be benefited with the provisional measure 534, that reduced the zero rates PIS and Cofins incidents about selling tablets produced in Brazil. This is the Park of the Foxconn plant in jundia is capable of producing the apparatus. For this reason, who wants to wait for the tablet produced in Brazil hit the shops, You can have advantages, How to buy it at a lower price on your own and have all the guarantees offered by the retailer.
2 – Storage and cloud – The retina screen can bring headaches while delivering great quality. The new resolution requires a higher quality of content producers. Any video with a resolution of less than 1.080 pixels can transform into a real disaster in the new screen. The same happens with images. An electronic magazine file can greatly increase. So that the 16, 32 or 64 GB does not fill up fast, the user must trust the iCloud and transfer with the PC so that the new iPad don't get clogged. With the speed of the 3 g connection in Brazil, transferring a video or magazine won't be well received heavier. Ainda não sabemos como será feita a conversão de applications em baixa resolução (made for iPad 2). Even with an ingenious solution, This can bring discomfort to users while developers don't fit.
3 – Brazil does not have 4 g – Invest in a device with 4 g LTE support connection will be an expense with little advantage. After All, According to Anatel, There's only LTE networks prediction function in the country at the end of 2013. Even so, they should exist only in big cities, as São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro or Brasília. Until 2013, probably will be in the fourth or fifth generation of iPad. It is worth remembering, However, the new iPad supports HSPA networks. These Yes already exist in Brazil and offer quality superior to the 3 g connection and traditional.
4 – Connectivity failures – The iPad does not have a simple USB port, does not have a SD card reader and, para ser conectado à TV ou other monitores precisa de um adaptador HDMI. Todos estes recursos que facilitam a vida do usuário já existem em tablets Android com preços bem melhores que os do iPad.
