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...
Ipad is nonsense..i was about to like mac..but now how am i going to give a play to my 2yrs old son??

Android tablets on the other hand become obsolete after a few months. Android table owners have to pray to god or relay on android community for an update. Android tablets have fewer apps and no resale value.
The problem with apple haters that they are so blind with anger (why I don't know) that they can't see the fact that iPads give the best value on the market.
No charging while in use??!!!
Lack of basic iOS apps - weather, stocks, clock, calculator, voice memos.. :O
This iPad is a failure, it is cooking it self...better call it the iCook. it reaches 48 degrees celcius.
Also when playing a game the battery cannot be charged only when you stop the game otherwise it will keep draining your battery until stop the game.
Also the charger can't keep up with the power drainage!
This iCook is a true FAILURE!
Why benchmark is with iphone for performance. we need benchmark with ipad2.it's really suspicious that new ipad performance is lower than ipad2. In this review GSM arena used ipad2 as benchmark for most comparison except for performance,why? Whether GSM arena is honest with their review?.
Oh God!! the biggest disadvantage in the new IPad is the 15-64 GB Internal Memory with no external storage device to connect to..Apple is also very smart and charges a bomb to upgrade your memory. (with your 1080p HD videos storing upto GBs of memory, there is no alternative to transfer them to external Hard Drives.. except deleting them on the iPAD.. When the world's 70% online apps are using the Adobe Flash Player, this gets the tablet a huge setback for surfing on the Internet.

Why i need quad-code graphics, if after i play graphics demanding games my ipad becomes hot as **** :) or you think quad-core is made for browsing??? :)) Better camera? For me it's still mystical...why the hell i need good camera in tablet (i need only secondary, for video calls). I'm not a hater (i have ipad2 at home), but this apple upgrade is misunderstanding.

It sounds like, based on your comment, you are a close-minded human being. Before you judge, you have to do research, compare and then criticize with sense accompanied by citations based on what have learned; if not, then you are just a Troller.
Are you sure about the music payer part? Is it not already the loser music player they issued with iOS 5?
Unicorn, 23 Mar 2012I'm surprised that at the end of your review you bring the Samsung tabs and Asus autobot as co... moreYour rationale is absolutely ludicrous.
First of all, having less software than iOS does not mean that Android has no software.
Second, saying that Android tablets are not reasonable alternatives to the iPad because they don't have all of iOS's apps is like saying that Macs should never have been considered as alternatives to PCs because at the time, there were many popular Windows apps that didn't have Mac variants. If everyone thought like you do, Mac OS wouldn't have the rich selection of apps that they do today.
Lastly, looking at market share is of little consequence when making a decision about which tablet to buy. Conversely, it's what people decide to buy that affects the market.
Having said that, I'm still probably going to buy an iPad. I just wish that people would have a little tact. Promoting a product doesn't have to involve slandering another.
First of all, Kodus to gsmarena for giving a neutral review on the New Ipad 3. They did some consumer research first before doing the review. And that's basically the trend nowadays.
So what's up for the New Ipad? Better Resolution, quad-code graphics, and better camera...It helps consumers usage for everday tasks.
Heat issues are no-brainer here. Since we are takling of a 4-core graphics processor and bigger resolution...if you play graphics-demanding games, it will generate heat as any processors are. I'm not sure how the New Ipad handles to dissipate the heat on their components, maybe not like desktop systems with their liquid-cooling or better airflow fans. But if they try to match performance of truly eye-candy desktop systems, they may have to do some software updates on their IOS to cope up with the hardware installed. Apple are good (not better) at fixing things up, either by marketing/suggesting a better alternative or by software updates.
I think iPad is not very user-friendly. The Retina display, improved camera and new GPU are yes i can say awesome. But come to think of it, you'll buy a tablet with limited features? For me, I don't think so. I'm a very heavy user for gadgets so I need a broad world in my tab to do my needs for it.
Go for the one where you can do lot of things..feel free.
I don't want restrictions coz I paid for it.
Sorry apple, i'm disappointed with the new iPad.
I'm surprised that at the end of your review you bring the Samsung tabs and Asus autobot as competing alternatives to the iPad. Most people who use or are interested in using good apps would probably prefer an iPad 1 from 2010 over the useless droid tablets.
You obviously don't understand the whole tablet market at all.
iPads are good at running ios apps in much the same way as MS windows is good at running windows software.
Android on the other hand has no software so it is only good at running its own OS. So in other words Android based Tablets are gadgets.
iPad market share is the proof of that.
