This only seems to be an incremental upgrade over the iPad 2. I reckon the iPhone 5 (or 6) will be completely overhauled. Read this article (http://gadgetimate.com/why-2012-will-be-a-big-year-for-iphone/) to see what I mean...
I've bought and been using the new ipad for a few days now and the heat issue is really bothering me now. I live in a tropical country so the heat from the gpu is more pronounced. Did a test with an electronic thermometer after playing for more than an hour...the temperature was a whopping 49.5 degrees Celcius!
To all male owners: Try to avoid placing your new ipads on your lap to avoid sterility problems in the future. lol!

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
i will try to post my oponion as accurate as possible so my fellow collegue could understand it.
i believe that the new ipad better than the ipad 2 only because me and dolez took a picture from it
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!
Try it first before you judge it. Oh wait you can't afford that's why you hate it.
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.
AnonD-1825, 24 Mar 2012I bought this iPad yesterday, great product. Everything works so well, no wonder why this is b... moreThe problem is that the device is useless and people are inconveniencing themselves into using it. 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.
AnonD-8850, 24 Mar 2012no charging while in use! major flaw!It's not true, when you play very agressive graphical games you feel that it doesn't charge because it takes battery faster than charge.
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.
