Apple iPad 3
30 May 2013
Excerpt: The new iPad (aka iPad 3) comes with an improved 9.7-inch 2048x1536 pixels Retina display, 5-megapixel iSight camera on the back, front-facing camera for video calls, and 16, 32 or 64 GB of built-in storage. Additionally, you will be able to choose between Wi-Fi only model, 3G (CDMA or GSM-based) and 4G (LTE) one.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Excerpt: Right on schedule, Apple has announced their latest iteration of the new iPad . Yes, that’s its official name and it was the biggest surprise of the entire announcement. You can guess that the most important upgrade to the third generation of Cupertino’s market-dominating tablet lies in the ridiculous 2048 x 1536 retina display packed with 3.1 million pixels — the most ever in a mobile device – and a 40% boost in color saturation.
Conclusion: Anyone waiting for "The iPad HD" as it was also rumored to be named need wait no longer, as Apple has tendered a high-definition monolith that goes beyond 1080p to bring us unprecedented video quality in a consumer portable media player. With an upgraded iSight camera, 4G LTE for internet access almost anywhere, and Apple's well-entrenched service iNfrastructure, the new iPad once again succeeds in making the best better.
Pros: Jaw-dropping, knee-shaking, better-than-1080p video quality, Still/Video camera greatly improved, Fast 4G LTE data access (optional, requires monthly service)
Cons: STILL no Flash video support, Slightly more sluggish power-up/-down than before
Conclusion: The iPad is without doubt the best tablet you can buy. Yes, it’s a little fatter and heavier than the last generation, but not so much as you’d notice, and the payoff – that incredible Retina Display – is well worth the extra heft. Add in the best selection of apps this side of the iPhone, a camera that captures 1080p video you might actually use, at a price that undercuts most of the competition, and you’re on to a winner. But what if you have an iPad 2?
Excerpt: We get our hands on Apple’s latest toy, the iPad 3… First thing’s first: whether or not Apple want us too, we’re all calling the latest iPad the ‘iPad 3′, aren’t we? It is, after all, the third incarnation of the best-selling tablet – so why wouldn’t we?
Excerpt: Where do I begin? On the launch day of Apple's third-generation iPad launch, I ran down to my local retailer and picked up a couple of them. I then did a video unboxing of the device and a few little spiels of how it's changed, etc. But now we have the juicy review, where you'll find out just what I think of the new iPad. I'm not much of a tablet gamer, but for the purpose of the review I purchased and downloaded a bunch of games.
Excerpt: An Apple review is an often tense battle between pride, momentum and fairness. The new iPad is an important product for Apple, for two main reasons: it brings Retina to all three of its main “post-PC” product lines, the iPad, iPhone and iPod.
Excerpt: The iPad has earned its reputation. While there is strong competition from the likes of Samsung and Asus, neither of these companies have (yet) been able to rival the iPad in terms of screen resolution and software experience. Granted, 2012 will be the year where we see an all-out arms race between tablet purveyors to bring screen resolution, battery life, speed, and form factor to unseen levels, but as of today, in many areas, the iPad still has a tremendous shadow cast...
Pros: + Screen transforms the way you consume digital content
Cons: - Noticeably heavier and thicker than iPad 2
Summary: Apple just made the new iPad official and it comes with a Retina Display that goes up to 2048 x 1536 resolution with a pixel density of 264ppi. Apple’s existing apps will be scaled up to the high-res display and will be encouraging developers to do the same
Pros: + Retina Display, + Tried and true design, + Good Battery life
Cons: - No LTE for most of us, - No major changes, - Apple iPad, - USB Dock Connector, - Charger, - 3.5mm headphone
