And here is Galley Cat's report:
Apple unveiled a new iPad today with a high-resolution retina display. Pricing for the new device starts at $499.
Overall, the new display should make eBooks easier to read. The new iPad also includes an updated version of iPhoto, complete with journal-writing tools for writers to create detailed records of a trip or experience. Do you use a digital journal?
Check it out: “Select a group of photos and iPhoto automatically flows them into a beautiful journal that’s fun to personalize and share online. Touch a photo to make it bigger or smaller. Or drag it to a different spot on the screen. iPhoto adjusts the page around whatever you’re doing, so your journal always looks great. You can even add captions, maps, dates, and weather — giving family and friends the big picture at a glance.”
In addition, this new device will make it easier to explore iTunes U courses. Below, we’ve collected ten free courses that writers and readers can take through Apple’s online program. These courses can be accessed on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
