Apple has announced its new iPad with a Retina display screen.

The new screen features a 2048x1536 pixel resolution (that's 264ppi to you and me).

Phil Schiller, Senior VP of worldwide marketing Apple's demonstrated the stunning screen. Here are some of the quotes expressing his joy:

'Until you see it you can't understand how amazing it is.'

'To this day no-one has yet matched that display technology.'

'Photos are just going to look amazing on that gorgeous high-resolution display.'

Certainly looks good in comparison to the iPad 2 and iPhone. Slight nightmare for game developers though, as Ben discussed earlier.

Other features on the new iPad includes an ARM A5X processor with quad core graphics and a 5-megapixel iSight camera.

For those countries that support it, there's 4G LTE bundled in. This is specifically for AT&T customers (sorry UK).

Update: Verizon has also announce dit will ship the new iPad.
