This release will have a pretty big impact as it will be the 1st LCD less than 23" to feature XD resolution.
The next ipad maybe called iPad XD and not HD since XD is higher than HD.
Processor will be the A5X higher clock and a faster GPU as Graphical performance is more important than CPU with the XD resolution.
A lot of Android folks will say the Tegra 3 with quad core is more powerful, the reality is the Tegra 3 is a joke. The upcoming Snapdragon 4 dualcore already best it in many benchmarks. So a quadcore isn't necessarily faster. Nvidia failed to include a more potent GPU.
It will take some serious GPU to run games at XD resolutions.
New AppleTV, does 1080p. $99 on March 16th.
New iPad is 2048x1536. Has over 1million more pixels than standard 1080p (1920x1080)
A5X quad-core graphics. Comparing to a Tegra 3, Apple says the A5 is "twice as fast" and the A5X offers "four times the performance." Not sure of the benchmark here, folks.
Same prices as before. It's slightly thicker and heavier than the iPad2.

Around the office, more folks are talking about buying the new iPad without even looking over the specs. This is crazy. People who 1st doubted the iPad as being an useless device is now talking about ordering one and asking about what are some good apps.
My guess is there will be some ridiculous wait times and shortages.
