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...

And for the record, i own an htc desire hd and i just love it, i also have an iphone 4s and i cant live without it. Android and ios are both great oss, and i use both, each one of them has its ups and downs

yesterday I just used the new iPad for the first time it was amazing ! I used Xoom , Galaxy 10.1 & the iPad 2 .. lets be realistic there was no tablet as SMOOTH & as responsive like the iPad 2 in the market ! super smooth ! I was disspointed when i used the galaxy 10.1 .. now the New iPad is really amazing ! it got pixels more than enough & more than what you need JUST AWSOME ! use it once & do a little safari browsing then try to comment negatively!

New iPad is expensive. Guys, can you please list the tablets with similar specs and cheaper?

New iPad heats up. It only adds 10-deg more than iPad2 when you do heavy graphics oriented operations.

And, 3-million sold in 4 days. List a single other tablet sold so many in so less time. Don't tell that 3-million americans are fool and many more fools are coming in next weeks when the device will be launched in 25 other countries.

If Apple cannot provide quality, no one else can because no other company thinks from a general non-technical user perspective when design their products.

My iPad 2 sat for two months, I just had no reason to use it? At this point it is essentially three steps away from being a toy. It would not motivate my generation (born 1977) to learn or to read anymore so than traditional methods which are in fact much better. As a 16 year Apple user the iPad is the one products that I still do not understand it's success. I just don't get it? I do think the airplay make the iPad more usable, but I can do this with my iPhone 4s and I really don't think it is at the point where it could be really something amazing. That is still several years away, who knows what the technological landscape will look like. I am hoping other manufacturers aren't resting on their laurels. And something incredible must emerge from Microsoft at some point.

I tried this last night in normal use while i used iPad it charged fine, so no problem there.

The screen is really really nice I have to give it that. It really is a solid upgrade from the older ones, which is nice. I've never owned but, me and my friend are comparing my Transformer Prime to it, and out side of the insane screen they're both pretty much on par with one another. We didn't look at the rear cameras on them because that's just a dumb feature to begin with, but I will say that both are just amazing nice to use. However, living in Florida and it was kind of hot when we did this lil test, the iPad dose get uncomfortably warm which I really didn't like at all.

No Flash support in the web browser
No standard USB port
Non replaceable battery
No stereo loudspeakers
No GPS receiver in the Wi-Fi version
No memory card slot

Can get uncomfortably hot at times
No charging while in use
Lack of basic iOS apps - weather, stocks, clock, calculator, voice memos

I bought this iPad yesterday, great product. Everything works so well, no wonder why this is best tablet out there and sells millions and get's 4,5 or 5 star ratings everywhere.

Why so much hate without trying?

Screen is stunning, very sharp and great Color saturation, looks better than my samsung pc monitor.

I dont have wifi problems and Screen isn't yellow, everything works very well, device get's warm on normal use, i dont know how warm iPad 2 was.

Now i have surfed web for half hour and battery still 100%, so things are looking very good,

This is my first tablet.

" The 2048 x 1536 pixel Retina display has four times the resolution of the previous model. The bar is yet again set too high for the competition. " why? This display is made by samsung... A little bias dont u think
