Ipad V3 – First Impressions
Posted 16 March 2012 - 09:49 AM
Just got the iPad delivered ... after the truck was involved in a minor collision just outside!
First thoughts are (and nothing new here) that it looks just like the old one and the screen is bloomin' fantastic. You can blow screens up as far as they'll go, with minimal, if no, pixellation.
Because it's a bit thicker than the 2 – though less than a millimetre – I've tried it out with a number of cases and it fits every one so far. So it looks like you can keep most, if not all, of your iPad 2 accessories. Not sure about super-fitted shall cases yet.

Yep, putting it side by side with the original iPad is just amazing.
Yep, works well with the original iPad keyboard, and don't appear to have any issues with the camera connector either...

I'm upgrading from iPad 1, so I notice the sleekness and less weight of the new one. And the screen, wow, nice. Just charging and syncing my stuff to it now.
Got $200 a week ago at 'Regadget' for my 16GB WiFi iPad 1 (I was iPad-less for a week). Happy about that! Another reason to buy Apple products, they hold their value amazingly. Be quick though, I see today it is already down to $180 for that model with them.

If you are going from an iPad 1 to the New iPad then that would be amazing, but going from a 2 to a 3, the only real benefit is the screen... Which does look incredible.
What I'm hanging out for is the next iPhone!

Ken (iPad 3rd gen) is power hungry, it gets hot, these are the only two differences I have found since my purchase.
I also have managed to sell off my iPad 2, 32 gb, white, for $400.00 so that leaves some cash spare for the new iMac 27", no little bag for that one, will start the process of "psychological enhanced need" (I need a new Apple product) to my good wife Lisa now, this will lessen the shock at delivery time.
A happy Apple customer.....yet again, Apple have failed to disappoint.........
