Round-up of iPad coverage

Apple announced its new iPad at a company event in San Francisco a few hours ago. The new tablet doesn't come with any seriously whiz-bang new features, but it's dramatically improved its display, boosted its processors (to power that display), added 1080p video capture and provided access to LTE cell networks. 

Here's what everybody's saying about it: 

Wired: The tech mag live-blogged CEO Tim Cook's whole presentation.

Boing Boing: "More exciting to iPad-toting photographers is mobile iPhoto, which has a swipe-driven interface, photo journals, editing brushes, filters, and a tool to "beam" pictures between devices."

CNET: "Doubling the iPad's screen resolution to 2,048x1,536 pixels that exceeds any current tablet or laptop--that's a move only Apple has the scale and industry muscle to pull off. At this point, if Apple decides that the next iPad will be made from unicorn tears, I wouldn't bet against it."

Slate: "The way they presented it, it's not that there's a "tablet" market dominated by the iPad. Instead, there's a PC market in which the iPad is a major player but by no means a dominant one."

Huffington Post: Where and how to trade in your old, now-useless and embarrassingly un-hip iPad 3.
