Complete specs for the new iPad

To be honest, I excpected more from Apple,4G LTE was bound to happen, every tablet coming out right now is 4G LTE. Finally they introduced a high end camera. I excpected the processor to also be quad core,but apparently the GPU is quad core, but the actual processor isn't. This gave us a look at the new iPhone also. Not looking bright at all.

See, this is the problem with the new name for iPad. When I read your list I first thought they were new iPad specs, not New iPad specs. As in, there were new to the new iPad. But eventually I knew that they were not new to the new iPad.
