ne of the first thing’s to run through your mind after picking up a brand-new iPad is: “Wow! Look at that screen”. That’s because the new iPad sports Apple’s incredible Retina display (that first appeared on the iPhone 4). This powerful screen packs more pixelsper-inch (264 to be exact) than the human eye can determine between. The result is incredibly sharp text that’s delightfully easy on the eye, perfect for reading long books and surfing web pages; and as for photos, videos and gaming… well to say it’s never looked better is an understatement of no small magnitude. If this is the first iPad you’ve ever owned, you’ll soon discover plenty more to delight you as you start to use it. Never before has any device made it so easy to browse the web, send emails, show off photos, use Facebook, and perform all the myriad computer tasks that we do daily. No longer do you have to put up with a cranky mundane computer that throws up errors, and seems set to make life difficult. The iPad makes things fun. Mark Hattersley, Editor in Chief

LTE is also much more ﬂexible than the two dominant 3G standards that are part of CDMA and GSM networks. in the US. The technology also reduces latency. Germany is using 800MHz for LTE. in January 2012 Ofcom said that they would only grant the spectrum on the condition that at least one of the new licence holders achieved 98 per cent coverage across the country. that will allow this. as well as have enough to go around in cities. 800MHz is better for rural areas. Less latency means better buﬀering. which can travel further.Double frequency The reason why 4G needs to be able to use two diﬀerent frequencies is so that it can get to people in the depths of the countryside. It’s this 800MHz band. which is the lag time usually measured as being the time from initiating a request to a network and receiving the response.

If a carrier can only obtain licences in a given geographical area or even an entire country for ranges of frequencies that don’t precisely match up with those fixed widths. LTE has yet another trick up its sleeve: the use of multiple antennas with multiple-in.
