Verge score: 9.3

Successor to the popular iPad 2 and furthering Apple's push towards post-PC computing, the "new iPad" features a Retina display at the same 9.7-inch size as its predecessor but with doubled pixel density. The rear camera shares the optics system of the iPhone 4S for better photo quality. Optional 4G LTE is another addition, with theoretical download speeds of up to 72Mbps.
