Apple today announced a new iPad, available March 16. The device (in Apple's fashion named simply "iPad") costs the same as the current iPad 2. Key features include:

  • A new 2048 x 1536 display, with four times the pixels of the current iPad
  • 4G LTE data, over multiple carriers
  • Hotspot capability (if allowed by carrier)
  • Siri dictation, as an alternative to keyboard input
  • 10 hours of battery life, 9 hours when on LTE
  • Quad-core A4X processor

The iPad 2 will remain available at a discount: $399 for the 16GB WiFi model, and $529 for the 16GB 3G.

Apple also announced iOS 5.1, which should be available today, over the air.

We'll add more when we know more. Please post comments and observations below.
