Apple's iPad HD is one of the speculated names, along with iPad 3, for the new third-generation iPad that debuted in March 2012 as simply "the new iPad." The iPad HD retains the 9.7" size screen of the original iPad and iPad 2, but the device gets its nickname from a new ultra high definition Retina display with support for 2048-by-1536 resolution and 3.1 million pixels.
Additional new features in the iPad HD include an A5X chip with quad-core graphics support, a 5 megapixel iSight camera with the ability to record HD video in full 1080p, 4G LTE support on both Verizon and AT&T networks and AirPlay integration with the new Apple TV device. The iPad HD retains the iPad 2's weight of 1.5 lbs and battery power of up to 10 hours.
