Apple iPad 3 review: Hotter than ever

Apple iPad 3 review: Hotter than ever - read the full textSo, the iPad is dead, long live the iPad. That's also part of the deal. The retirement of the first-generation of the Apple tablet is nothing out of the ordinary. There used to be the iPad and the iPad 2. Now, we have the iPad and the iPad 2 is the backup, the second choice...

For example let's 2 pieces of gold (both same weight and quality) one piece is in form of a block and second piece is in form of a ring.which piece is more 'usable' ? Of course answer is ring because u can wear it while cube is useless , can only be stored.
That same thing applies to designs and usability of electronic products. There are many brands just like u said who are involved in making/manufacturing things.
Take sharp just now u said they invented it , that's why apple is asking to make displays for them !! Because just now u stated they researched and has thesis (since they have a patent)

Sony makes best sensors ( even found on latest s3). Apple only makes things they can handle on their own. They make nice software. So they don't depend on others for tools like adobe flash which is cross platform. But hardware they are not really good. So they are choosing best company to make their hardware. Yesterday LG and today sharp. That's why u see google maps (android is google's platform competing with apple) because they can write maps software but cannot offer good service as google so they chose google so that people have maximum positive experience as google does job well in providing maps service. Because they deliver good service.

Thing about chips is bs because they are custom designed and mobile chips are different from computers. In computers we use slots for RAM , optical drives etc later we can upgrade ram and change inputs and install drivers for them like removing old USB ports and installing new ones as replacement to old ones. In mobile chips , there are layers of silicon added and each layer has a function , for example apple A4 chip on iPad is 25% faster on iPad 1 compared to iPhone 4 but has only 256 MB ram but iPhone 4 has 512 MB RAM. If u take iPod touch it has same speed as iPhone 4 but carries only 256 MB RAM and no no access to 3G or gps because each chip has different software , different buttons , different features and different hardware. So they have modify it and reconstruct the chip but basic architecture is same. In this entire world u take any chip and almost all of them have same basic things but vary lot with architecture and software. Android is based on Linux but does Linux look like android ? No way. This is also same case. So by ur definition apple is taking best from every company's offerings like camera sensor from Sony , display from sharp , chipsets from Samsung. Which delivers great experience. Just look at galaxy s2 quality of photos and s3 photo quality both offer 8 MP but s3 looks a bit better because design and architecture is different even though basic modules are same.

I've bought it and using it for last one month, very very happy with the performance and as a first tablet user I'm glad to own it, no problem found so far.

Looking at the ipad3 and you could be forced to say wow. The ipad3 I play with is far from desirable. Te os is very unstable and this made me to want something else.

Apple (USA) is JUST a BRAND - NOTHING else..!! NEITHER did they invent any CORE Technology ( all the technologies they are using are been developed by Japanese tech GIANTS i.e. HITACHI, SONY, SHARP, Panasonic, NEC.. & the likes..) NOR even they manufacture their products ( ..Taiwanese FOXCONN Group does the job for them.. Be sure!!)..>>
Apple's "NEW i Pad or i Pad 3" uses ultra-high resolution (currently of NO USE though in practice..) display INVENTED, MADE & SUPPLIED by SHARP Corporation, Japan..!! Previously they (Apple, Inc.) used IPS displays (for i Phone & i Pad) manufactured by LG Display (Korea) under license from HITACHI, Japan with HITACHI, Japan invented IPS (In Plain Switching) technology (1997) Later HITACHI Display transferred the blueprint of the technology to Japanese Panasonic Corporation (Panasonic integrates this IPS technology in there CCFL back-lit LCD TVs & in LED back-lit LCD TVs..) & HITACHI also granted license to LG Display, Korea to remake LCMs (Liquid Crystal Modules) based on IPS Technology ....
Moreover, Apple, Inc. uses Camera Sensors & Lenses + Sound Chips developed, made & supplied by SONY Corporation, Japan.. Besides, Apple's A4 / A5 processors are been made by Korean copy-cat Samsung in Sammy's plant WITH THE TECHNOLOGY & CPU ARCHITECTURE of "ARM Cortex family Mobile Processors".. Only i OS & Mac OS belong to Apple, Inc. of USA..

... so Apple have finally released their upgraded hardware for their inspirational products - iPhone and iPad. Unfortunately the future is staring them in the face and it's only 3 months away - quad core Android with huge retinal screens.

A year down the line we will all know the truth. Was there ever any more inspirational production from Apple? So many companies have lost their leads by resting on their laurels: IBM, Sony, Microsoft, RIM

It will only take someone with a bright idea to change everything. Miss you Steve...

Want to be able to navigate those 30% or more sites not fully navigable with a device that does not support flash or java. No stereo speakers is a bummer, and the retina display is useless. Who needs all those pixels when not even movies can benefit from it. No micro sd slot? Are you crazy! Even the lack of replaceable battery can be forgiven. Thanks but not thanks. There are a lot of better and more useful tablets out in the market.
