Here’s the first look at Apple’s newest iPad, which features an improved display, among other features.

Key details:

  • Improved “Retina” display
  • A5X chip with quad-core graphics capacity
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • Supports 1080p video recording
  • Voice dictation feature
  • And, crucially, it will work with new high-speed 4G LTE networks from AT&T and Verizon. It will also work with two other new mobile networks — HSPA+ and dual-channel HSDP — which will be important outside the U.S.

    Apple says the new device will boast the same battery life as the iPad 2: Nine hours for wireless use.

    Pricing will stay the same as the iPad 2: $499 for 16 gigabytes, with $100 more for 32GB, and $200 more for 64GB. 4G wireless models cost an extra $130. The new model will be available March 16.

    One thing not included with the new model: A new name. Apple is simply referring to this device as “the new iPad.”

    More details — and photos — are available fromĀ Ina Fried’s comprehensive liveblog.
