The new iPad launched today. It's not called the iPad 3, even though that's probably what everyone is going to call it. As expected, it has a retina display, which gives developers four times as many pixels to play with.
It also functions as a personal hotspot which means that you can share your internet connection with your other devices over Wi-Fi. This is possible on the iPhone 4, but this is the first time Apple has let users do it from a tablet.
Aside from that, there is not a great deal to set it apart from the more sensibly named iPad 2. Notably missing is Siri, but a dictation button has been added to the keyboard, so third-party apps get to take advantage of Apple's voice recognition software.
