Apple announces iPad 3, 1080p Apple TV, iOS 5.1

Apple is bring Siri to the Japanese in iPhone iOS 5.1
Apple TV is now 1080p interface and movies, with updated UI and photo streaming.
iPad 3 (not iPad HD as some had speculated):
  • Retina display is 2048x1536 pixels. Over 3 million pixels.
  • Dual-core A5X chip & new Quad-core GPU (claimed 3x faster than NVidia Tegra 3)
  • 5MP Camera full-HD 1080p video
  • Voice recognition & dictation (not SIRI)
  • LTE hi-speed digital wireless (Verizon and AT&T in US; Rogers, Telus & Bell in Canada)
  • Same pricing as iPad2

Biggest surprize is that a full-blown SIRI experience is NOT part of the initial iPad 3 launch. It will probably turn up in a future update.

Neither is any space-age haptic feedback feature...
Rumours were flying
, but it seems that April 1st came early this year!
