Apple announces new iPad with 3.1M-pixel Retina Display, 4G LTE, voice dictation - Page 3

Underwhelmed. I'll wait for the next one. No surprises either and what about larger storage space. Can't edit high quality film and photos with only 16GB of storage.

Well looks like LTE battery life still sucks. New iPad is 42.5W vs 25w in iPad 2. That's a pretty big jump. Still no word on RAM increase either.

From Apple's tech specs page:

What sort of horrible accident left your brain this damaged?

3D isn't a gimmick. The studios are investing highly in it. 3D blu rays are selling well, and so are the displays. Nintendo even has a glasses-less 3D device, something Apple could easily do given this device is focused on a single person holding it just like the Nintendo device.

What the hell are you gonna say next year if Apple introduces the iPad 3D?

Oh and as far as facetime HD goes, thanks for looking at up for me. I guess this will be just another thing to wait for next year.

For the life of me I can't figure out why Apple doesn't include a miniSD. Oh well, this is a really nice hardware though. Here's hoping that other tablet manufactures play catch up real fast.

Because they know people would end up just buying the base model and expanding the storage space on their own.

Also, maybe there's some proprietary file system they don't want microSD cards to be capable of...

Until they have a holographic display, 3D is just a gimmick. Have you played with the Nintendo? It's a piece of crap and it's not selling well.

Looks like they decided to avoid a numbers race and just stick with plain ol' "iPad". Which makes sense to me. Too bad that will moot about 1/3rd of the discussions on AppleInsider!

Very disappointed there is no 128GB version and I really hate that home button.

We don't have a 4G network in the UK yet so that feature is wasted here for this year.

I'm sure the screen is very good and the faster processor is welcome but it's not enough to make me want to upgrade.

The new animations on the iPad page on Apple.com are AMAZING. I love that stuff. Just the little HINTS of stuff.

And they start when you scroll down to that part of the page where they are. So subtle.

I don't like how the iPad moves down slightly on the Features page, though. I don't get that.

Time flies. 15 months ago we were foreseeing and praising this very move on this board and now it's real product.
BTW, kinda hint about Apple's production cycle timeframe.

If you come to that conclusion you also have to say the '3G' in the new iiPad sucks worse than the last year's chips because it's only gone up by 11% despite the battery going up 70%.

I think the better conclusion is that the display and associated components are to blame. We'll have to see some exhaustive testing from AnandTech but that MDM9615 is looking pretty impressive.

I love how you crop off all my comments to cherry pick and troll me. I already explained in this thread it doesn't really matter how Apple got there. My point is Apple didn't do anything magical with the chipset. You take everything I say as an offense. Chill out. Motorola crammed a enormous battery in the Razr Maxx, does that mean they are awesome too? Apple battery stuffed their way to an (alleged) 9hr LTE life. Ok? So? fine. Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE is rated for 12hrs and most tests put it at about 8. :shrug:

No flash on the camera.

No T-Mobile service?
I have been very impressed with T-Mobile. I find they offer that most diverse plan options (Right now I am on the 1500 text/ minute and 30GB web plan for $30/ month) and also the best coverage. In my apartment MetroPCS, AT&T, and Verizon do not pick up signals, but T-Mobile does, even on a cheap entry level Samsung flip phone.
Now with the 4GLTE service, I expect T-Mobile to be announced when the iPhone 5 is released, which I will gladly purchase.

Oh that makes sense not very nice of Apple to do that.. I think I'll stick with my iPad2 until such time they come out with a music creation app that needs the higher resolution. In the mean time I'm saving my pennies for the new Asus Transformer Prime with 1920x1080 rez. Not as fancy as a iPod3 but I really the keyboard with the extra battery and Android 4.03 is a lot more flexible when it comes to running Linux apps.

As a package, with improved hardware and software, a great improvement over the existing model. The screen performance looks fantastic. As for the camera, I'd rather have improved optics over a greater number of pixels. Seems to me that the lens/package redesign is significant and understated. Five elements in the space seems pretty good. I have designed lenses, though some time a go but think that camera performance will be rated quite highly - time will tell.

We still have zero indication that's what's actually being used.

So, regarding pre-ordering "The new iPad"... I have a question. If I pre-order today, can I designate an Apple Store to pick it up at on launch day or do I only have the option to have it shipped to my home?

I would like to pre-order an iPad to guarantee that I get one on launch day, but would actually enjoy the experience of going to the (very nice) mall nearby, where the Apple Store is located, to pick it up. I actually enjoyed the line wait (and company) when I "reserved" and then picked up the first-generation iPad back in 2010. Would love to be able to do that again, but am willing to pay up-front, online, to do so.

They did mention that the new iPad has more memory than either the PS3 or Xbox 360. Each of those has 512MB so it's possible to say this has 1GB in it.

That sounds a lot like last year when there were erroneous reports that the iPad 2 only had 256MB just because of a lowly person saying so.

I also for some reason thought we would see them do something like a touch screen bezel with dynamic buttons.

Maybe ipad 4

Interesting, since none of these features were ever even being speculated about in the rumor mill.

When the 2012 iPad gets replaced by a newer one in 2013, what are they going to call the 2012 model? They can't refer to it as "the new iPad" anymore.
