Apple’s latest tablet isn’t called the iPad 3 or iPad HD, it turns out: just ‘the new iPad’. It was unveiled last night by CEO Tim Cook and his team. The screen is much sharper – a Retina display like the iPhone 4S – the processor is faster and the rear-facing camera is much better. In countries with 4G/LTE networks, it’ll support those too. There wasn’t much to say music-wise, although Apple’s GarageBand iPad app has been updated to add strings, iCloud support and a four-person wireless jamming mode. But the takeaway from the night was Apple’s wider business, with Cook talking about the “post-PC revolution… a world where the PC is no longer the centre of your digital world, but rather just a device”. He pointed out that Apple sold 172m of these ‘post-PC’ devices in 2011 – this is iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices – accounting for 76% of the company’s revenues. “We think that iPad is the poster child of the post-PC world… We sold more iPads in the fourth quarter of last year than any PC manufacturer sold of their entire PC line worldwide.”
