this is not apple iPad 3, apple name it "The New iPad" or people said "iPad HD"
I'm sure had Jobs been alive, this product wouldn't have seen the light of the day in its present form.
Seems like Apple is trying to fool us. Giving us everything we want EXCEPT the processing power. The 4th gen iPad will without doubt have a much more powerful CPU, and therefore kinda forcing us to buy that one when released.
Apple refuses to launch a product that is up-to-date for more than 6 months. The A5X chip is already outdated though.
apple is truly the king of touch tech. they prove this with the ipa3, just lay ur hands on ipad3 and u will know what touch means. its currently the best available screen in the world, i cud pay any price to get this
AnonD-4420, 08 Mar 2012Li-Po 42.5 Wh = (3816 mAh) has ONLY 10 Hour Talk time ??? HOW ?they mean using time... i think!
The only things I'm disappointed about is that they didn't upgrade the front camera... no faster cpu (supposedly, the only thing official is that it's dc not qc which i wish had)... the ram might be the same... and battery doesn't last longer then the 2... but I could live with that
[deleted post]Would never bother with Windows 8, microsoft has alot of catching up to do to be as secure as iOS. Some good androids out there, but have not found one yet as good as the 4s or the ipad.
Not for me...........wastage of money........they made it like a brick thicker and Heavier.....this happens when Job is not around. The thickness is due to LTE which will not work in Singapore as here it runs in different frequency of LTE here......will wait for next itteration......till then I am happy with tab 7.7 as primary phone and tablet. My iPhone 4 is now secondary phone for local sim when I travel. Hope iPhone 5 will bring me back to Apple or may be with window 8 around who knows I will ditch both iOS and Andriod......it was in news that Job spend most of his last days on iPhone 5 rather then iPad3.........so can understand the technology without soul in iPad3....... hoping to grab a the last iPhone influenced by Job this summer.......unless someone brings a metalic case sub 8mm window 8 phone and tablet.
AnonD-4420, 08 Mar 2012Li-Po 42.5 Wh = (3816 mAh) has ONLY 10 Hour Talk time ??? HOW ?Probably something to do with the massive resolution on the display. That kind of resolution needs a decent amount of power to drive, both in processing and battery power. 10 hours is still good, considering that's what the iPad 2 gets out of its battery.
As mentioned previously, 14 commercial networks operating LTE in the 1800MHz spectrum across the globe are not supported by the new iPad. Why not. This is hardly rocket science. Remember there is a real world out there and not everything revolves around just the USA.
The reason I have never bought an iPad or Android device is simply because I dont need it. They plays games, check emails, plays video. So what! They are no where near being a netbook replacement in terms of software relevance. Apps you say. 99% are rubbish.
The Processor(CPU)is not the Quad core it's the Graphic Processing Unit(GPU) don't be confuse... the Cortex-A9 still Dual Core.
As I can see and know about technology, I don't see any purpose of 2GB or quad-core procesors on mobile phones or tablets, or a good camera on tablets because they are big, a front camera for videocals only is needed.
I have an iPhone 3GS and it runs everything just fine and very good. Up to 1GB and a dual-core proc of 1GHz is more than enough in a phone, and 3,5"-4" screen size, everything else is just showing off and unnecessary
The iPad 3 has 1 gigabyte of RAM. It was specified at the San Francisco unveiling.
