Apple iPad (3rd Generation)

 

Apple new iPad review: A truly outstanding display makes the third-generation iPad the best yet

4G capable in Australia ; Improved front-facing camera ; Quality app ecosystem

Only a minor upgrade over 3rd Gen ; Lightning accessories are expensive ; Gets warm with regular use

The 4th Generation iPad is only a minor improvement over its predecessor but still remains the tablet to beat. An upgraded A6X processor, Apple's new Lightning connector and a better front facing camera are the main differences. All in all this is an...

Apple iPad March 2012 review: Apple iPad March 2012

 

Apple iPad March 2012

Apple's ; includes a stunning new screen, matched by a quad-core graphic processor and the world's largest app and media store to feed it content. There's a proper 5-megapixel rear camera now, with 1080p recording quality. Optional 4G data from AT&T...

The new iPad is slightly heavier than last year's model; apps and movies optimized for the screen might take up more space; and ports for HDMI, USB, and SD require adapters.

With a host of improvements--faster graphics, 4G wireless options, a better camera, and a gorgeous high-res screen--the latest iPad cements its position at the head of the tablet pack.

When the original iPad bounded out of the starting gate, it took a huge lead before its competitors figured out what was going on. With the iPad 2, Apple lapped the competition once more by setting design expectations that were nearly impossible to...

Apple iPad 03

 

If you own an iPad 2 should you upgrade to the new iPad 3? The answer is no, unless you have more money than sense, but there is a case for upgrading from the first model to Apple's latest offering.

This is a classic Apple piece of work, sleek smart and highly practicle. It hits all the right buttons which is what Apple is famous for

It is not 4G and Apple with all their $97 Billion in the bank should have had a little respect for all the devotion that Australian consumers have given them in the past and gone out and delivered a 4G model that actually worked in Country. Samsung and...

That has NOTHING to do with my original comment. The article placed on Cnet Australia was a disgrace in that it completely ignored the HUGE downfall of the ipad in Australia.

I can't believe it. You didn't even write a review. this is one that you copied off the ameican cnet. Disgraceful Donald Bell. You couldn't even edit it so that 4g was removed. It's obvious that it's incompatible with Australia's 4g network.
