Summary: Ordered refurbished iPad 3rd generation. Product was noticeably refurbished but so far it works as it is supposed to. It arrived one week after the order was placed. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase.
Excerpt: I used to own the iPad 3 but I found the UI very limiting so sold it and bought a Nexus 7 I must say , the Nexus 7 the best tablet i have owned to date and it is much better than the new iPad. The iPad is a good tablet , but its not the best tablet .
Pros: Great build quality and premium choice of materials., Best tablet display currently available, Healthy ecosystem of third party iPad optimized apps, Decent rear camera
Cons: Very limiting and outdated looking OS., Average battery life, Quite an expensive tablet
Summary: I was a little deceived by the phrase "The new iPad". I thought that meant the iPad 4 but it doesn't. It is just a different model of the 3 released after "iPad 3".. As far as I can see from research the iPad 4 isn't much different. Overall I love it, ditching my laptop.
Summary: If your buying IPAD or any other pad please note that 3G or other "G" does not mean a sim slot. I just bough IPAD from Apply noted 3G etc and though it came with Sim slot via the statement is based on provided not unlocked sim.
