I love the iPad. It is truly the best.Posted .
I was one of those people that said "I don't need a iPad, I have a Laptop / PC Desktop / Smartphone." There wasn't a need for a tablet in my life but it would have been nice to catch up with the world in the direction technology is moving. So over the course of years I always dismissed iPad because of it's price. I bought MANY Android Tablets and taking them back because I was disappointed with Issues. Here is a list: - Elocity A7 tablet - Samsung Galaxy Tab - Dell Streak 7 - Archos (few of those) - HTC Flyer - Eee Pad Transformer - Xoom - Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0+ Now all of them wasn't bad tablets, they just wasn't working properly after a while. So after all that I gave up on tablets period. I decided that since I have a now Android phone (Samsung Galaxy Note) It was time to just save and bite the bullet on a iPad.... Now I question myself...Why did I wait so long to buy one?!?! This tablet is amazing, It truly a remarkable device. I can see why Apple get's praised for making a device this good and this fluent. While I understand both iOS and Android is different and each it's own (There are some things Android and iOS do better then one another.) but "The New iPad" is leaps and bounds over most tablets that I've tried here is why: Screen: Bright and Vibrant HD Visuals. It's crisp and sharp and reading on this thing is Phenomenal. This is eye candy (or iCandy) pure eye candy to anyone who is a fan of a HD display. Unlike the iPad 2 which I tried at the demo at store there is no way I can go back to a lower resolution tablet due to the fact I am spoiled by this screen. The games look amazing as well. Honestly its like the screen isn't there. Speed: Quick...So quick in everything it does. Web browsing is super fast, Opening apps is super fast, Doing anything is fast. I never owned a iPad 2 so I can't compare the two but I am very happy with it. Apps: Good apps are in the app store. Almost anything your looking for its almost certain its in the app store and running perfectly if they are iPad ready. You won't be disappointed. Its one of the best ecosystems on a tablet device. This was my main reason for getting the iPad and I'm sure a lot of other people too. There wasn't a hassle like "side loading" like it was on my first tablet "Elocity A7 tablet" which lead to a terrible user experience for a first timer. The iPad simply just works and I can believe if this your first time having a tablet. You will be happy. iOS 5.1.1 / Camera: It improves on what was already one of the best mobile OS out there. Notification makes it a much more enjoyable experience. unlike it was before on the first iPad. The cam on this thing is so much better then it ever have been before 1080p looks clean and clear. Recording Video is nice! What bad about it is that it takes up SO MUCH STORAGE. I don't see myself using the camera at all to take pictures it's nice that it's there though. Let's face it, I don't think many people would want to use their tablet to take Pictures / Videos. I will just use the front facing cam for face time. Build Quality: Solid and it just feels right in the hand. Just don't drop this tablet at all. it seem like it would break pretty easily. I would get a screen protector like I did and a case to cover the iPad. I notice its a little heavier then the iPad 2 which might be a problem to some people. The bad: Well, The iPad can get warm at times on the back. It's also somewhat restrictive and limited. I would like to have an SD slot to add more storage / lack of customization that iOS such as widgets / and a little bit more open in the market. I can live without these but it would be nice for Apple to open up a little more. The price is expensive but worth it (especially for that screen alone) just little too much just for 16GB of space. Overall: I just want to point out that this Tablet is not for Android junkies, its just not. If your coming from an Android and that's all you've been using. I doubt you will be 100% happy especially if your so use to customizations. I suggest you guys wait for the Nexus Tablet from Google which I will be getting as well. But for people that just want a great user experience with a tablet without any hassle. Even if your a New comer to tablets, I suggest you get the New iPad. Its a little hard to say if you have an iPad 2 to feel the need to upgrade unless you want that drop dead gorgeous screen. But trust me it improves on what the iPad 2 before it had which was a good tablet from the start. It have the best ecosystem, it still has the "just work" aspect and it still one of the best tablets out there. Buy it, enjoy, and have fun!I would recommend this to a friend

Best tablet out there for the pricePosted .
I'm no Apple fan. I'm one of those who have never bought into the iPad craze and purchased a Transformer instead because I thought it was best value for the money. But after having using Android system (4.0 now) for awhile and after having used new iPad and various other tablets out there - I can only say one thing - this new iPad puts everything in its class to shame. The Apple iOS is as fluid as it can be. I think it is a good thing that Android came out to compete with iOS but it has ways to go before the OS can be considered to be on same level as Apple. The amount of software available for iOS is astonishing, we are talking about 100 times more APPS. They are quality APPS that are mostly bug free and tailored just for your iPAD. This is unlike Android, with latest version 4.0. The problem with Android is that not ALL iterations are compatible with each other. I have devices that uses 2.1 but can't run 2.3 software and most of the Android devices I own can't support Android 4 or Android 2.3.X for that matter. So there is always a compatible issue with software for Android. There is NO standard so your experience on one Android device may not be the same on another. Apart from technical aspect, I've found APPS made for iOS are more refined and slightly better. And with the new gorgeous retina display, it just blows everything away. For those lamenting lack of SD cards or docking keyboards like Asus, just get a good bluetooth keyboard or wifi hard drive and most of your storage problems are solved. I mean why would you want a docking keyboard, that just turns it into a netbook or ultraportable which can run Widnows 7 and be more productive. I mean you might as well buy a good ultraportable if you need a keyboard/USB that bad. But that is not why we buy tablets for - they are meant to be as convenient as possible. And the new iPad serves its purpose with flying colors. So I say new iPad wins this round. It is simply the best tablet out there overall at a price no tablet can compete with. But who knows what will happen next year. Maybe Asus will come out with Infinity at a price that is lower than new iPad. That is what is great about competition, the consumer wins in the end.I would recommend this to a friend

Same as my iPad 2Posted .
I loved my iPad 2 but this is an improved version that I'm happy to have purchased. I sold my iPad 2 for 350.00 and got "The New iPad". I did try the ASUS Prime, the top Android Tablet, and I spent more time googling errors and trying to fix it than actually using it. I also purchased the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and it was the same thing. On top of that the exact same apps I had on my iPad 2 were either non-existent on these two tablets or stretched versions of the phone app. I will say that I enjoyed the upgrade of ICS on the ASUS but what's the point if you get errors and the apps are blown up versions of the phone apps. If Google can fix the experience and get developers to take them seriously I will be more than happy to switch in two years. Until than I will be fine with this wonderful device.I would recommend this to a friend

Nice screenPosted .
Retina screen alone worth $100 more. I have an iPad 2, bought an iPad 3 yesterday for my wife. I have compared them side to side, all I can tell you is, if you don't have an iPad 2 dont even think twice to get an iPad 3, if you have one already, i suggest you don't waste your money, unless u can sell the old one with fair price. Other than Retina screen and better back cam, nothing really worth upgrade. For the case, I have a extra yoobao case for iPad 2 but works great on new one too. I guess most old case would work for the new one.I would recommend this to a friend

Great TabletPosted .
I bought this product because my Dell laptop crashed on me and it was my second one through Dell. I wanted something reliable and made with great quality so I decided to buy an Apple iPad plus the Apple computer. You can sync the two if you wanted to. I like the iPad because they are very hard to get any kind of virus. It's very easy to navigate through. My 6 year old had it all figured out before I did! It is very easy to use, especially if you're a beginner. Overall, love the product! I'm glad I bought an Apple tablet. You get what you pay for and it's well worth it!I would recommend this to a friend

Great devicePosted .
I purchased this for my 5 year old to play games and watch movies while traveling to see family. When I first got the iPad set up; we had minimal movies downloaded. I rented 2 movies and purchased 1 for the road. We were only able to download 2 movies because we ran out of space. When I went to purchase this, I specifically asked about space and if we had games downloaded, how many movies could we download. The sales guy told me we should be able to download at least 4 to 5. It's still a great buy but I did go upgrade to the 32 mb and it's been great!I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect for the 90 year old beginner!Posted .
This iPad was purchased for my 90 year old Mother in law, who really has not used a computer. She is just loving the iPad. The logic of the Apple products has allowed her to migrate about the the desktop top especially delightful has been her ability to interact with her family via text messaging and FaceTime. Since most of grandchildren and children have Apple products, she has appreciated the ease of communication by leaving messages for the GrandKids. Her biggest frustration is that the send button and the erase button are next to each other on the keyboard (too close). On occasion she erases her message while tapping the send button. Those buttons might be better spaced in future keyboards. She is still in the learning phase. But is having fun.I would recommend this to a friend

Best toy everPosted .
I got an iPhone because I needed a phone/PDA combo that would sync with my Outlook contacts and calendar. The iPhone does that, but how splendid that so does the iPad - the wireless iCloud sync is nearly perfec.t Somehow "groups" aren't supported any more in my email, but I've found ways to cope, and how nice that I can make calendar updates on any device and have it reflected in moments on the other two. The iPad's retina display is so crisp and clear, it's a pleasure to watch videos or read books -- though not in sunlight, too much glare. I mainly wanted the tablet so I could take notes at meetings without dragging my laptop. I had tried another tablet and bought a bluetooth keyboard for it. That worked when it wasn't important but the connection was tricky to establish AND it would disconnect if I was writing something important. With the iPad, once I introduced the tablet and the keyboard, they connect immediately when I turn on the keyboard and the connection never drops til I turn it off. Bonus: I bought a VGA adapter, and I can run my multimedia projector off the iPad. Works like a charm, absolutely no problem. Battery life is so far quite satisfactory. I haven't bought screen protector film for it (it's glass -- why does it need anti scratch protector?); but I did get one of those rubber covers to save it when I'm not using it. I spilled orange juice all over it (and my seatmate) on a recent plane trip. Both got rather sticky, but the iPad, at least, still works perfectly. The Mail app presents the mail in a very easy to use format. The tabbed Safari browser is quite sophisticated. I can't think of anything I don't like. I said it's a little heavier and larger than I wanted - I was looking at 7" tablets so I could just stick it in my purse, but the iPad so outperformed everything else, I succumbed and bought a larger purse. That's the closest I can come to something I don't like about it.I would recommend this to a friend
