24 March 2013
Conclusion: The iPad 4 has been out for a while, of course, and you can buy it online on Apple’s website or in stores around the world. The pricing is very similar to the iPad 3 when it was launched – you can get the most affordable model for $499, with the most expensive 4G+Wifi 64GB model running you a whole $829 – that’s the price you pay for the perceived king of tablets.
Apple iPad 4 – disappointing, but an upgrade nonetheless
13 January 2013
Conclusion: The pricing of the iPad 4 is the same as the iPad 3 when it came out, which is good news – if you want to get an iPad 3 , that is. Yes, the previous model is now cheaper, and it’s a better purchase in my opinion. The iPad 4’s only improvements are a new port that is incompatible with any accessories you might already have and a marginally better front facing camera – it’s technically an upgrade, but I’d say you should save the money and go with the iPad 3 or the iPad...
Excerpt: Apple's new seventh generation iPod nano changes the model's direction from being a square, wearable, audio-only faux-iOS device to being a sort of mini iPod touch, but lacking any cameras, mic, WiFi or apps beyond the typical iPod features bundled with it.
Pros: Thin, compact, sturdy construction, Larger 2.5 inch multitouch widescreen display, Very easy to setup and use, Simple step counter in addition to Nike+; FM radio features
Cons: Doesn't include iPhone-style headphones with integrated mic, Missing video output, camera, mic and speaker of previous generations, No clip for attaching the workout-oriented device, Will not work with 720p HD iTunes or iPhone-captured videos, No apps nor any built-in games or iTunes visuals
Conclusion: The fourth generation iPad feels more of a refinement. If you invested in the third-generation tablet don’t feel too hard done by. 4G is still at early adopter level in the UK and will be until there are more compatible phones and greater network choice. The processor boost will appeal to 3D gamers and although the iPad 4 is faster, in day to day use for email, apps and browsing, it’s not dramatically different and the new connector and front-facing camera boost aren’t...
Excerpt: During the event where the iPad Mini was announced, Apple also introduced a new normal-sized iPad. We compared this new iPad 'Retina' with the last iPad. Then referred to as the 'new' iPad, we will now call it iPad 3, and the Retina will be called the iPad 4. This article will discuss the differences between the two.
Excerpt: Engadget - Tim Stevens : "Twice as fast, better battery life, same cost. What more do we need to say? The new iPad is a hit on all fronts -- but it of course won't be received that way by all. Those who just made the investment in an old, new iPad are likely going to feel a bit burned, and we feel for you.
Summary: Many would argue that the iPad 4 came out sooner than it should have, or criticize that there really isn't any difference between this and the third gen iPad... both statements aren't too far from the truth.
The fact of the matter is however, with a newer faster processor on what already was one of the best tablets out there makes this a first choice for those who are in the market for one.
Pros: Beautiful Screen, Great performance, Light weight, Tremendous amount of third-party software
Cons: Not a huge difference between it and iPad 3, No expandable memory
Conclusion: The iPad was not the first tablet but it can claim sole responsibility for the explosive growth of the tablet market. Then the iPad 2 came to drastically cut the weight and double the processing power, and the iPad 3 crowned the collection with the gorgeous Retina display. With these jumps between generations in mind, the iPad 4 feels more like a 3S. That's not entirely fair though - the new chipset offers a greatly enhanced performance.
