    Well, no I haven't, but I still don't think 3D is a gimmick. The studios definitely are getting behind it.



    I mean games like nintendo's is what I was talking about. Nintendo's technology applied to movies is impossible, so glasses would still be required with movies.



    But again, a single person watching at a single viewing angle is ideal for 3D. I don't think 3D on tablets is that far off, and may even deliver a better experience than with televisions. I mean heck, the resolution is high enough on this thing that it would look amazing. It's the refresh rate that would be a necessity.

    How are you going to hold it when you use it?

    You have to use some sort of qualifier if you only mean "one dimension". For example, the display has a vertical resolution of 1536 pixels.

    Not wrong at all. Resolution is routinely expressed in one or two dimensions. To be non-ambiguous though, either way requires more than just numeric characters.



    Ironically, other people here were arguing that "resolution" can only refer to density per area. That just goes to show that language can be imprecise and that it is pointless to try and deny that words are used in multiple ways.

    Yeah. YOU. LOL



    Nothing I've said has been trollish. I'm a guy who said the iPad 3 is great, but there were some features (that I saw from the rumor mill to begin with) I was hoping for.



    What's the problem?



    You people are so damn sensitive, and so quick to call someone a troll, you come off as completely disingenuous. I mean for God's sake, we're talking about a tablet here. This isn't some intense topic that has an impact on any of our lives, like politics or something.



    Seriously, grow up and stop calling everyone who has the slightest difference in point of view a troll. Learn to address what people say instead of mentally escaping with that.

    Aaah, okay that makes sense, so Apple is saying what is and isn't good for us. Even though I have never had a malware or virus in the last ten years of owning Apple products. Pretty lame Apple!

    The 3DS is crap and not selling well, eh? I've got a bridge for sale!

    You really believe 3D adds enough to the movie going experience that justifies the studios charging extra for it?

    So no iPad 3 or iPad HD, just "the new iPad." I like that just calling it iPad. I hope they start doing that with the iPhone, too.



    DId anyone guess "Resolutionary" as the tag line?

    Nope if anything I need to give them a bill after my kid got so sick he pucked on me. Damn Lion King in 3D.

    I think you missed basic economics class. When a company cannot keep a product on store shelves, their is little reason why they need to lower the price. Especially if they keep improving the functionality of the product.

    3D - it's the future, it's here, it's not implausible that a tablet be 3D. If anything, it's MORE plausible given that a single person tends to watch movies on these things, and it's far easier to deliver a rich 3D experience when one viewing angle is considered.



    This is just dumb.

    Unlike someone who shall remain nameless Chronster didn't state his wishes as demands or claim Apple was doomed or such nonsense. I don't think his requests are sound, especially when taken all at once, but he's certainly not trolling.

    It was speculation since I simply never heard of anyone formatting a microSD card using HFSX.



    You didn't even address the initial point, which was most likely the correct one. Oh and hey aren't you the one who said my expectations, which all stemmed from the rumor mill, never actually existed in the rumor mill?



    Talk about being an asshole.

    I was really looking forward to a holographic display oh well maybe next year.

    1920*1200 = 2304000

    ipad = 3145728



    36%

    I hope it's the same lens, at least. It's obviously not the same sensor. I'd imagine it'd be cheaper to have the same optics between the two.

    And now we return to my original question, "Are there other devices that allow for 9 hours of LTE?" And since you've given none, your point is clear. Next, indeed.

    1. It will be called 'iPhone'. No number. THANK YOU, Apple.

    2. Come off it. Stock drops after every keynote ever. This is a phenomenal update, better than most were expecting. It will sell 50 million devices.

    Last time I checked, I can have an ipad pretty much any place they sell it. What do you mean they can't keep it on store shelves? Where do you live that you have this problem? Come to northern VA, they're everywhere.



    "This is just dumb." is a dumb retort. At least give me something to go on rather than your opinion of what's dumb and what isn't. The studios getting behind 3D, that's dumb? The tablet having a single person viewing and a single viewing angle, and now a high resolution, making the potential 3D experience better than that of a TV, that's dumb? Again, what is wrong with you?
