GET­AWAY GAD­GETS

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - CONTENTS -

Hol­i­days are sup­posed to be about re­laxed times, not the chaos that comes out of hav­ing a thou­sand things to do for travel and fun. For­tu­nately, there are gad­gets that can ease the process for peo­ple with a hol­i­day in their minds. So fill your pic­nic bas­ket with gad­gets and en­joy your­self.

STUN­NING DIS­PLAY THE BIG­GEST HIGH ON THE NEW iPAD IS ITS STUN­NING RETINA DIS­PLAY. ONE LOOK AT THE HOME­SCREEN AND YOU KNOW THAT THIS DIS­PLAY IS MUCH SU­PE­RIOR TO THE ONE ON THE iPAD 2—AP­PLE CLAIMS A 2048 X 1536 RES­O­LU­TION, FOUR TIMES THE PIXEL COUNT OF THE EAR­LIER VER­SION. WATCH­ING HD MOVIES IS AMAZ­ING, AND FOR THOSE WHOM THE iPAD IS AN EBOOK READER, THE TEXT IS CRISPIER THAN EVER.

WHY WE FELL FOR IT THE NEW FEA­TURES MAKE THIS THE BEST TABLET IN THE MAR­KET. THE iPAD 2 IS NOW REL­E­GATED TO NO 2.

REAR CAM­ERA THE FIRST iPAD DID NOT HAVE A REAR CAM­ERA, iPAD 2 HAD ONE FOR 720P VIDEOS (AND AV­ER­AGE STILL IMAGES). THE NEW iPAD HAS A 5MP iSIGHT CAM­ERA WITH FEA­TURES SUCH AS AUT­O­FO­CUS, TAPS TO FO­CUS AND F/2.4 APER­TURE. THE STILL IMAGES CAP­TURED IN NAT­U­RAL LIGHT LOOK IM­PRES­SIVE ON THE RETINA DIS­PLAY. THE LOW LIGHT IMAGES WERE NOT ALL THAT GOOD THOUGH. THE VIDEO RECORD­ING IS NOW AT 1080P, BUT THERE IS NO HIGH DY­NAMIC RANGE (HDR) FEA­TURE AS IN THE iPHONE.

SOUND AP­PLE DID NOT LIST SOUND AS ONE OF THE NEW FEA­TURES, BUT THERE IS DEF­I­NITELY AN IM­PROVE­MENT IN THE SOUND OUT­PUT. IT IS NOT HARD TO MISS THIS WHILE WATCH­ING MOVIES OR PLAY­ING GAMES.
