New iPad Camera Is A Major Upgrade, Photos Confirm
Yesterday we reported on the first unboxing video for Apple’s new iPad. Somehow Vietnamese site Tinhte.vn got their hands on a White 16GB WiFi + 4G several days before the planned release date, and posted some video and images of the device.
Thanks to the video and some benchmark testing they did on the iPad, we learned several interesting things, including the speed of the new A5X processor (1.00 GHz), and the amount of RAM the new iPad would have (1 GB, double that of the iPad 2).
Now it seems that the good folks of Tinhte.vn are giving us even more information about the new iPad. Late yesterday they posted images taken with the new 5 megapixel iSight camera. Since the iPad 2 got a fairly piddly 1 megapixel camera, the new iSight camera represents a significant upgrade. If Tinhte.vn’s images are genuine (and they obviously have a real iPad, so why post fake photos?), then the iSight really is vastly superior to the iPad 2’s camera. Check out some of the images below, then let us know what you think in the comments.
