So, the new iPad is finally here. The whole web had gone gaga over the rumors that surrounded the much-anticipated launch of the new iPad. In this article, we will do a cross-analysis of exactly what were the rumors speculating and how the reality turned out to be.


The name for the new iPad:
Was it to be called iPad 3? Or perhaps Apple was contemplating a total shift in the naming convention of the new tablet. Some even went on to suggest that the new iPad will be called iPad HD owing to the expected high-res display. At the end of the day, Apple was indeed able to trump all these rumors by naming the new iPad just that – ‘the new iPad.’

Pricing of the new iPad:
First, the rumors had it that the new iPad will have its prices $70 – $80 above the standard costs of iPad 2. Eventually, a very reliable source told 9to5mac that the pricing of the new iPad will be the same as iPad 2. As it turns out, 9to5mac’s source proved out to be accurate, yet again, as the pricing of the new iPad is identical to prices iPad 2 was earlier offered on.

Addition of LTE (4G) and Siri in the new iPad:
The speculations were abound that the next-generation iPad will be available with support for both LTE and Siri. This has proved true since the new iPad comes with support for 4G networks. It also comes with Siri albeit not in a way iPhone 4S comes with Siri. Rather, Siri will be used as a voice dictation tool on the new iPad.

The design and camera of the new iPad:
This is where the rumor got it clearly wrong. It was reported by multiple sources, with quite an air of confidence, that the new iPad will feature an 8-megapixel camera. As it turned out, the new tablet came with a 5-megapixel camera. It was also being said that the new tablet comes with tapered edges, a rumor which did prove out to be spot-on.

Retina display:
Again, Apple was able to reveal no surprises here as it had been guessed pretty accurately by analysts. The rumors were able to predict that the new iPad will feature a new Retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536, a speculation which was absolutely accurate when Apple did finally reveal the specs of the new iPad.

The processor:
Most off us were expecting the new iPad to come with a quad-core processor. The rumors did their rounds on the web predicting a similar future. But Apple decided to take a step back on this one, launching an A5X processor, although with quad-core graphics. The Verge did predict that Apple may launch a lower-than-full-quad-core processor but with powered up graphics.

1080p content on new iPad and a new Apple TV with 1080p iTunes:
I must say this one proved to be strangely, bit too accurately, true. I almost feels like we have a few oracles in the midst of the tech world. It exactly happened as the rumors predicted. The launch of the new iPad coincided with the launch of a 1080p Apple TV and 1080p content on iTunes.
