CNET Hands on with iPad 3
Here are the highlights as I see them.
- New Retina display. Twice the resolution of before.
- 2 core cpu, 4 core GPU. Should improve the performance, which was already good on the 2.
- Support for 4G LTE networks from Verizon and AT&T. No contract required. Pay as you go.
- The base Wifi model is the same price, $499.
- Built in support for your iPad as a Wifi HotSpot. No need for separate device like a MiFi. Checked with Apple sales and the hotspot feature is available on both Verizon and AT&T.
Another important note, the iPad 2 is still available at a reduced price of $399. That is a great deal for that device.
Last I checked if you order from the Apple Store, your iPad should arrive on March 16 when the device is available in the Apple Stores. So if you want one, order quick.
