The meedia event on Wednesday is expected to witness the debut of Apple's next generation tablet, dubbed iPad 3. Despite increasing competition from Android and Windows tablets, iPad 3 is expected to become a huge success as it is expected to be better than iPad 2 in every way.
Here are 5 ways in which the new Apple tablet will be better than its predecessor.
After the leak of images of alleged iPad 3 with bigger case, a larger microphone is being expected in the upcoming tablet. What is this microphone update for? If the rumors are to be believed then the bigger microphone is designed for better voice input to guide Siri through talking.
Siri and iPad will be an ideal combination giving a ‘touchless’ interaction between the tablet and user.
 Faster Processor
The original iPad had single core processor, iPad 2 has dual-core processor and now it is iPad 3’s turn to pack a quad-core processor. Or at least that’s how most of the geeks think. MWC 2012 ended up becoming a launchpad for quad-core devices. Rival manufacturers are rolling out tablets with quad-core processor. So, it is believed that Apple will load up its upcoming tablet with quad-core processor.
 Retina Display
This is one of the most wished features of iPad 3. After a device running iOS with a screen resolution of 2048 X 1536 pixels showed up on Ars servers, Apple watchers have concurred that the upcoming iPad will have a 9.7-inch screen with a pixels density of 246 ppi, making it the best tablet for graphics. Cnet reported that the new tablet may bee named iPad HD by Apple.
 Better Battery
Most probably, iPad 3 will feature quad-core processor and may even come with 4G LTE option. These features will drain a lot of charge from the battery. Hence, Apple is going to pack the tablet with a bigger battery so that it can stay away from chargers for a sufficient amount of time.
 Same Price
It is rumored that the new tablet will cost $70-80 more than iPad 2’s current price. But, we don’t think so. The upcoming tablet will cost you same as iPad 2 costs now. As for iPad 2, its price will fall after the debut of iPad 3 and it can go as low as $399-449 for the base model.
