Hit: Released in March 2012, less than six months Jobs' death, the 3rd-generation iPad featured several enhancements, most notably a Retina display with 2048- by 1536-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch--twice the resolution and four times the number of pixels as the iPad 2. The new iPad was the first Apple product to offer 4G LTE connectivity (but only in North America), beating the iPhone 5 by six months. The iPad remains one of Apple's biggest success stories. The company sold 17 million iPads in its 2012 fiscal 3rd quarter, which ended June 30. Apple reportedly is ready to launch a smaller iPad with a 7- to 8-inch screen next month. Ironically, Jobs dissed the 7-inch tablet form factor in a fall 2010 earnings call. Tim Cook must think different(ly).
