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...

except the display, same old.

Good Review. But why does every reviewer have such inconsistencies with the comparison devices...?

In this articel you compared the sound of the new iPad to a Samuncg Galaxy S phone .. the original almost over 2 yrs old. I want to see how it matches to the 10.1, or 7.7. TODAYS DEVICES....

I lose total interest when sites do this - stick with the latest from each competitor and show the real data not pick and choose to suit your case.

I need Advice please: I am in Africa, Zambia and I want to buy the new ipad 3 + wifi + 4G from Amazon. But what is offered is either 4G with AT&T or Verizon. Are these sim locked to these carriers, in other words, will it work on any network in Zambia, if I bought any of these .

It's the same case with the iPhones as well, I can confirm.

Hi people, dont you think that the screen of the ipad 3 is kind of pinkish.... I mean the screen of ipad 2 is much better. I agree in the tech specs section, ipad 3 has a better resolution, but check out the screen difference of ipad 2 and ipad 3, you would def find that in the ipad 3, the screen is kind of pinkish.....

If Steve Jobs was alive, he would have looked into getting this fixed at the earliest.

Let's hope sooner or latter, Tim Cook realizes this.

um, i think the "no charging while using" thing is a feature, not a bug. seeing how hot the thing gets running on battery, using it AND charging will make it even hotter still. probably a security feature.

Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 doesnt have ics (android 4.0)
the new ipad is the best tablet with 3G (because the only tablet with quad core cpu is the prime and doesnt have 3G
witch makes it not usefull )
quad core + 3G Tablets aren't coming in the next few month
and most of them doesn't have a Full USB port only Acer's (and samsung tabs +prime with adapter :(
samsung's Note 10.1 isn't a breakthrough just a tab with an s pen (expecting more from sammy )
and to put you in the picture apple did a lot to make that screen happen (battery 11.666 mH(70% more) +thicker +heaveir +strongest Gpu available+ hotter)
correct me if i'm wrong and i'am happy to hear your responses :)

Apple better be innovative with iPad 4. iPad 3 is another rip-off. Not much improvement over iPad 2 and isn't worth the upgrade. I would rather spent my hard-earned $$$ on a Galaxy Tab. Kudos to Samsung.

Ahhh the trolls (Unicorn) come out to play... and people are daft enough to bite!!

Personally I see the tablet market as a bit of an extravagance... to my mind it simply can't replace a laptop because a) it doesn't have the storage, b) it doesn't have the performance, c) certainly with ipads, it doesn't have the flexibility needed to make it a useful workhorse as well as a luxury web browser...

Having said that, there is no doubt that the app store is carrying this tablet - Apple have spawned the ultimate cash-in - apps, it's no longer about the Apple product itself or its specs - it's about the apps available on it... and to this end, it has no competition, Android tablet apps are woefully short in quantity and quality... but... they are much more flexible, and to my mind more useful as a result... but nowhere near as much fun...

It's horses for courses really... I see ipads as the ultimate luxury tool to use your apps and maybe a bit of browsing... I see Windows tables and Android offering a much more complete solution to laptop replacement...
