    Predictably Remarkable. The best tablet in its 10″ class., March 16, 2012

    I was able to secure the new iPad at our local Apple store, but I also got to spend some time with a review model beforehand. In any case, I’ll take you hands-on with the new model, plus I’ll share my experience from my past two years of iPad ownership altogether, especially for those who haven’t yet had an iPad to call their own. I’ll also reveal a treasure trove of info on how you can legitimately download tons of quality apps and games for free, in hopes of making this the most helpful iPad review on Amazon!

    For those interested, I’ve also compiled two iPad listmania lists:

    Must-Have iPad Accessories: http://www.amazon.com/lm/R1M3AJDBR2BCA7?tag=1pad-20&ie=UTF8
    iPad vs. Other Tablets: http://www.amazon.com/lm/R3QLZ307253XU6?tag=1pad-20&ie=UTF8

    My review tends to run long, so I’ve organized information by section, with headings, to make it more helpful for those just looking for specific info. For example, see the heading “Downloading Apps and Games” for the info on obtaining free apps and games!

    First, let’s quickly cover what’s new, and what each means for you:
    + Retina Display – twice the resolution of the iPad 2, at 2048 x 1536 pixels (264px/in)
    + 5 megapixel rear-facing camera – take photos with over 8x higher resolution and quality than the iPad 2 (but still no flash)
    + Dual-core 1GHz A5X processor with quad-core graphics – better multitasking and flawless high-res graphics performance
    + 4G LTE capable – faster mobile connections on AT&T and Verizon when in 4G-LTE-covered network area

    If you’re considering the now-cheaper iPad 2, here’s a quick recap of what was new last year:
    + Dual-core 1GHz A5 Processor – better multitasking, 9-times faster graphics
    + 3-Axis Gyroscope – allows for higher precision and more motion gestures
    + Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound pass-through with Apple Digital AV Adapter (sold separately)
    + Rear-facing camera – supports 960 x 720 sized photos (0.6 megapixels), plus 720p HD videos
    + Front-facing VGA-quality camera – VGA-quality is a resolution of 640 x 480 (0.3 megapixels)
    + Verizon 3G model now available – no longer limited to just AT&T for the WiFi+3G model
    + Thinner, lighter and smoother with contoured back – feels more comfortable in your hands

    The iPad 2 brought a lot more new features to the iPad lineup, but the 3rd generation iPad still brings us some welcome new features. First, it sports the new A5X processor. Don’t be confused though, it’s not really that much better than the iPad 2’s, and it’s not technically a quad-core processor. The CPU itself remains dual-core, but the graphics processor built-into the CPU chip can compute 4 streams of graphics information, thus making the graphics aspect of the A5X processor quad-core. It’s confusing, I know. To be honest, there was no noticeable improvement in performance over the iPad 2, except maybe behind the scenes where it handles 4x more pixels. In general, everything on the new iPad runs just as smooth as it always has, which is as to be expected from Apple! But I imagine the new processor has particularly been used to speed up image processing for the new 5 megapixel camera, making photography just about as snappy as it is on the iPhone 4S, which I own as well. 4G support was also a nice surprise that had been rumored.

    On the other hand, other rumors didn’t exactly pan-out, including an SD card slot for photos and file storage, nor the possibility of a smaller, more manageable 7″ iPad model, but I’m still holding out hope for one in the future (UPDATE: a 7.9″ iPad Mini has now been released, and you can now read my review of it too: http://www.amazon.com/review/R18KRNCDSS963I?tag=1pad-20&ie=UTF8). Thankfully, the price stays the same for these new models, but that is as to be expected. As a boon for those who don’t really plan to use the new high-res camera nor need the Retina display or 4G speed, the iPad 2 is going to stick around for a while longer, with a new lower price for those in the market!

    ===== My Background =====

    I’m a website and mobile app developer who’s created a few apps and games for iOS devices, including the iPad. I also develop websites, so I like to ensure that those sites look and perform well on the device too, since it’s continually growing in popularity for surfing the Web with over the past two years. I’ve spent lots of time with both the iPad and various Android-based tablets, and I have to be honest… apps are what make the iPad (and other iDevices) so great. Android tablets have the benefit of price and size, but Android apps available for tablets are terribly mediocre! They’re also not as responsive as the iPad, at least not after you load them up with apps, games and other junk.

    I’m no Apple fanboy, but I can recognize quality hardware and software when I see it, and as far as 10″ tablets are concerned, the new…

    This review is from: Apple iPad MD328LL/A (16GB, Wi-Fi, White) 3rd Generation (Personal Computers)

    I’ve been a big iPad fan and was waiting anxiously for the third generation to come out. I bought the original iPad, and when the 2 came out, I happily sold the 1 and upgraded. I was thrilled with the thinner, lighter and improved iPad 2. So naturally, when word came out that the third one was about to be released in March 2012, I was right on board to buy one. Sold my 2 and preordered the 3 from Apple the day it was released.

    I was hoping the third gen wouldn’t be noticibly thicker and heavier than the 2, but unfortunately it was. I could definitely tell the difference when reading ebooks, which I do a lot. I couldn’t really tell any difference between the speed and clarity of the 3, but to be fair, I didn’t compare the two models side by side. I’ve no doubt the 3 is superior in this regard. I don’t use the cameras, so don’t care about this since I have a very nice digital camera for that.

    The one thing about the third generation iPad that concerned me was the heat issue. Shortly after receiving it, I was reading an ebook and noticed the left side was warm. Not hot, but definitely warm enough for me to notice it. This reminded me of laptops I’ve had that have overheated and shut down, and here I was only reading a book. My iPad 2 never had this problem and I used it a lot. I also had some difficulty backing up the 3 to the cloud, again, something that wasn’t ever a problem with the 2.

    After reading some reviews of others experiencing the heating problem with the latest iPad, and really missing the thinner and lighter iPad 2 , I decided to return the iPad 3 to my local Apple store and buy a new iPad 2. They had no problem taking it back and I was glad to see the 2 had come down in price. When the sales associate asked me why I was returning the 3, I told him about the heat problem. He didn’t seem surprised and said it was because the 3 has a larger battery.

    The third gen has a faster CPU and retina dsplay, but I never thought the 2 had any problems with speed, and the clarity of the display has always seemed fine to me. But I’m certainly no expert. I’m very happy I made the exchange and enjoying using my iPad 2 again. For my uses–books, internet, email and games, the cooler, thinner and lighter iPad 2 is a better choice for me.

    By the way, I just want to add that I think it’s unfair to compare the Kindle Fire and Nook to the iPad. These devices are just ebook readers and they’re fine for that–I’ve tried them both. Rather like saying, okay, you can buy this Mercedes or you can get the Volkswagen. Once you’ve used an iPad, you’re totally spoiled and trying to browse the Internet with a Kindle or Nook is an exercise in frustration after using an iPad.

    Should you upgrade from iPad 2? Should you buy a new 4th-gen iPad instead?, March 17, 2012

    UPDATE November 2012

    As you know, Apple has just discontinued this 3rd-generation model and replaced it with a 4th generation iPad. This is good news if you’re a buyer. You have the option of buying the newest iPad. But you have another option that I think is pretty attractive: buying a used 3rd-generation iPad at a much reduced price.

    The differences between the 3rd and 4th generation iPads are mostly minor and won’t affect the actual experience of using the device for many folks. The 3rd and 4th gen iPads have the same wonderful retina display, they are the same size and weight, and they have the same battery life.

    So what’s different? The 4th gen iPad has a faster chip and Apple tweaked the wifi and cellular connectivity. But as an owner, I can tell you that the 3rd-gen iPad is plenty fast and the internet connectivity via wifi or 3G/4G cellular is excellent. Really excellent.

    The 4th gen iPad has a different type of connector, so if you have previously invested in speaker docks and other accessories designed for the old connector, it’ll be harder to use them with the new iPad (you’ll need to buy adapters, and even they don’t solve all compatibility problems). I have a new iPhone 5 that has this new type of connector, and while I love the phone, the incompatibility problems with my existing accessories are frustrating.

    The introduction of the latest iPad last week is already causing the prices of 3rd-gen iPads to drop–even though they are at most 7 months old. It should be very possible to find a like-new 3rd gen iPad that’s maybe 5-6 months old at a much lower price. This is an option worth considering.

    As for me, I’m still very happy with my 3rd-gen iPad and I plan to keep it for a couple more years.

    My original review follows, with a few minor edits and updates to reflect new information.

    —-

    This review is for iPad 2 owners trying to decide whether to upgrade to the 3rd generation iPad. It also might be helpful for people deciding between buying a 3rd-gen iPad the now-cheaper iPad 2.

    I was perfectly happy with my iPad 2, a wifi-only model with 32gb. When Apple announced the 3rd generation iPad, I typed up a long list of reasons why I shouldn’t buy it. And then I bought one anyway. (I’ll be giving my iPad 2 to my parents.)

    You’ve probably already know what features the 3rd-gen iPad has, and how the specs compare to the iPad 2’s specs. But comparing specs on paper is different than comparing the actual experience of using the two products, and the experience matters more than the specs. I can tell you which of those features, at least to me, really makes the experience of using the new iPad better. And there’s only one: the display.

    I do a lot of reading on the iPad, and this is where the retina display really matters. Text is very sharp, even for very small fonts, and this makes reading on iPad much more comfortable. I’ve been reading Steve Jobs on my iPad 2 (using the Kindle app); I read the next chapter on the retina iPad and then tried to read the following chapter on the iPad 2 again, and going back to the iPad 2 was unpleasant. I had similar results when I compared reading articles on websites using Safari and when reading a few pages of War and Peace in the iBooks app on the retina iPad vs. iPad 2. After reading on the new iPad, you just won’t want to go back to reading on iPad 2.

    If you read a lot on your iPad, this to me is a compelling reason to upgrade, and perhaps the only compelling reason.

    What about photos? Videos? Games? Here, you can tell the difference, and the retina display is better. But in terms of how much the retina display increases my enjoyment of viewing pictures, video, and games, it is not enough to justify the cost of upgrading.

    On both iPads, I compared hi-res pictures I took at the Chicago Botanic Gardens using a DSLR with a good lens. On iPad 2, your eye can indeed discern individual pixels if you look closely enough, whereas on the retina iPad, it’s like looking at a real print of the photo. But after looking at the pictures on the retina iPad, and even noticing the differences, it was still quite nice to view them again on the iPad 2. Similarly for video: I watched a scene from the Breaking Bad season 4 finale on both devices, and while it looked a bit better on the retina iPad, it still looked great on iPad 2. Streaming hi-res movie trailers looked better on the retina iPad, but still looked great on iPad 2. For streaming video from Netflix, I could not tell any difference, most likely because the resolution of the source material isn’t any higher than the iPad 2’s display.

    I’m less of a gamer than most iPad users, but I did try Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy (a game supposedly optimized for the retina display) and Plants vs. Zombies HD (an older game). PvZ looks…
