New iPad to feel different

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Apple's new iPad will be thicker and heavier than the iPad 2 because it features a bigger, more powerful battery.

Even with a bigger battery, the battery life of the device stays the same: about 10 hours. That's because Apple has quadrupled the screen resolution, which in turn requires more computing power.

Apple revealed the device Wednesday at an event in San Francisco.

The new iPad will be 9.4 millimeters thick, or 0.37 inches. That compares with 8.8 millimeters, or 0.34 inches, for the iPad 2.

The weight of the Wi-Fi-only model is going up from 1.33 pounds to 1.44 pounds. Models equipped with modems for cellular data access are slightly heavier.

The new iPad will go on sale on March 16 in the U.S. and selected markets.
