Apple : Apple New iPad (Episode 3) - macmusicSome news features in brief:

The Retina display transforms the entire iPad experience. Razor-sharp text. Richer colors.
To make sure everything on the new iPad looks crystal clear, Apple engineers elevated the pixels onto a different plane — separating them from the signals.
The A5X chip with quad-core graphics drives four times the pixels (3.1 million pixels) of iPad 2 yet it delivers the same smoothness and fluidity iPad is known for. Even with all that extra oomph, the new iPad still gets an amazing 10 hours of battery life.

The 5-megapixel iSight camera features a backside illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by sunlight or candlelight. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly becomes a frameworthy gem. The iSight camera on the new iPad lets you capture all these unpredictable, beautiful, and hilarious moments. In 1080p HD, no less.

With iPhoto in the picture, the iLife family of apps for iPad — including GarageBand and iMovie — is complete.

Ok, great news, but what about musicians?
