iPad 3 is almost here!

Apple yesterday made a raft of announcements regarding the release of their latest iPad. Here's a round-up of the most impressive new features:
- Breakthrough Retina display (2048x1536 pixels)
- 5 megapixel iSight camera- quad-core A5X processor
- runs on 4G where available
- Voice dictation
- updates to iMovie and GarageBand
According to Gizmodo, Apple didn't even touch upon one of the new iPad's biggest selling points:
"The single biggest benefit of the iPad: speed. It feels at least a generation faster than the iPhone 3GS. Lags and waits are gone, and the OS and apps respond just as quickly as you'd hope. Rotating between portrait and landscape modes, especially, is where this new horsepower manifests in the OS."
Prices start at £399 for the 16GB, wi-fi version, and go up to £659 for the 64GB, 4G/wi-fi version. It'll be available from 16 March, and pre-orders have already started.
Now, all I have to do is sell one of my kidneys...
