Dear Commons Community,
Yesterday Apple announced a new iPad with a high-definition screen, faster wireless connection and several other refinements.
The new iPad is scheduled to go on sale March 16 for a starting price of $499, unchanged from the last generation of iPads. The product has a screen that provides a comparable level of clarity to the iPhone’s “retina display,” with higher-resolution than conventional high-definition televisions, according to Apple executives.
And in a sign that Apple intends to more seriously protect its market share in the tablet market, the company said it would continue to sell its second generation iPad, dropping the price to $399 from $499.
