Apple's New IPad Tops Consumer Reports' Tablet Ratings

Apple Inc's (AAPL) new iPad topped Consumer Reports' new tablet ratings, as the high-resolution screen of the new iPad sets a new benchmark in excellence, providing the best rendering of detail and color accuracy ever seen on a tablet display, the world's largest independent consumer-product testing organization said Monday.

"Performance on the new iPad was superb in virtually every other way as well. The 5-megapixel camera took very good photos. Verizon's 4G network yielded very fast, dependable connectivity to a 4G-compatible version of the iPad in our informal tests. And despite the energy-intensive display and graphics, the iPad still has longer battery life than all other tablets," Consumer Reports noted.

Consumer Reports also said that it carried out further tests that confirmed the new iPad is warmer in its hottest spots than the iPad 2, but that it didn't find those temperatures to be cause for concern.
