|Sharper, smarter, and better, the Bluetooth-enabled 3rd Generation Apple iPad is nothing short of a technological breakthrough. The Retina display of The new iPad, with 2048-by-1536 resolution (that’s four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an 1080P HDTV) and 44 percent greater color saturation, yields amazingly detailed and sharp images. Featuring a 5 MP iSight camera with a backside illumination sensor, this Apple iPad will delight you with its exceptionally rich photos and the ability to take 1080p HD videos. The built-in Apple A5X chip with quad-core graphics powers the 3.1 million pixels contained in the 9.7-inch display and generates an unfaltering response for all sorts of operations on this Apple iPad. Your voice will be its command - the Dictation feature in the 3rd Generation Apple iPad types as you speak, be it e-mails or status updates on social networking sites. What’s more, the AirPlay feature in The new iPad lets you wirelessly stream your favorite stuff to your speakers or an HDTV.|

Upgrade from the iPad 2. Sold it for £320 and paid the difference. A worth while investment for any iPad lovers.
First thing that impresses when compared to the 2 is the screen. At first I didn't notice it as much but after a month I have really got used to the retina image. I played a 2 the other day and the screen wasn't as crisp. It really has to be seen to be believed.
Only downside about the screen being that not all applications run at full retina display. Obviously all the apple ones and standard are retina. Noticeably safari is brilliant. My pick of the retina apps:
-weather pro hd
In terms of accessories compatibility they all work fine, even the hard shell skin that was only advertised as iPad 2 compatable working with the 3
Altogether a good product. Worth the £150 upgrade for a keen iPad 2 user. New to iPad it may be better to get the entry iPad 2 and save the money.
Excellent tablet, bought for wife who was not computer savy.
Found I-Pad very easy to use and with confidence.
Enjoys ability to e-mail and send messages. Surfing the net a delight.
Good value for money and no hesitation to purchase again. The
resoultion on screen excellent.
This purchase is my first excursion into the tablet market. For the first few days, I thought I'd made a big, and quite expensive, mistake. Coming from an IT background and used to a PC that does "serious" computing (complex spreadsheets, formatted word documents etc), the iPad seemed very underwhelming. But after a week or so, when I'd downloaded some usefull aps - eBay for instance, I began to realise it's strength's as well as weaknesses. Then I downloaded my first adventure game and after a few 3am sessions on that I realised I was hooked.
Pros: great graphics, some useful aps, addictive gaming aps.
Cons: lack of control (I still haven't been able to delete the first album of pictures I synced to it), lack of function for business use.
Conclusion: the iPad will never replace my PC but once I got my head around that fact, forgot about how much they cost new (the same as a good spec laptop), I chilled out and started to enjoy it for what it is for me - a sophisticated toy.
I BOUGHT THE APPLE IPAD AS A SURPRISE CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR MY WIFE. NEEDLESS TO SAY, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, MY WIFE WAS SPEECHLESS ON CHRISTMAS DAY!
SHE'S A BIT OF A TECHNOPHOBE, AND WAS WORRIED SHE WOULDNT BE ABLE TO USE IT. BUT WITHIN A FEW MINUTES, AND WITH A LITTLE HELP, SHE WAS SURFING THE INTERNET LIKE A PRO!IT CAME WITH ALMOST 100% CHARGE ON THE BATTERY, SO COULD GET STRAIGHT INTO IT.
AS FOR ME, I RESISTED THE HYPE OF APPLE PRODUCTS FOR MANY YEARS, UNTIL I FINALLY SUCCOMBED TO AN IPHONE. NOW IM HOOKED!
SO, THE IPAD IS BASICALLY A LARGER SCALE IPHONE, SO I WAS ABLE TO GET ONTO IT STRAIGHT AWAY.
SO.......NOW IM HOPING FORLORNLY, THAT SHE'LL REALLY DISLIKE THE IPAD, AND I'LL BE ABLE TO TAKE IT ON!
ITS FAST, INTUITIVE, DEAD EASY TO USE. I LOVE IT!
well, i wanted an iPad for quite some time and will be traveling a fair bit this year. so it was time to buy one. I know there are many other tablets on the market and many cost a lot less.
the thing with Apple and its products is they are just EASY to use. Apple has really thought about the end user rather than just produce a product that's not so easy to use.... I'd not be buying an PC or laptop from apple.. easy to use to not they cost WAY to much.....
