Apple claims its new iPad 3 is ‘the best iPad ever’ and that its flurry of amenities include ‘the best display ever on a mobile device’ and that its design is ‘resolutionary’ and that overall the tablet is, well, ‘It’s brilliant. In every sense of the word.’
While Apple’s hype of the product is grand and thrilling, does the actual product live up to the bevy of hyperboles bestowed on the gadget?
Well for starters, the Retina display is something entirely unique to the visual technology market. If you have not seen Apple’s new Retina display products which include the new 15 inch Macbook Pro, go check them out – your Retina’s will be BLOWN.
If you are a buyer who appreciates superior visual indulgence, then the Retina display on the iPad 3 is bound to bring you supreme satisfaction. Also, the new iPad’s camera is an amazing upgrade in comparison to the iPad 2. Jumping from .7 mega pixel/5 mega pixels the new iPad’s camera is over four times clearer and powerful than its predecessor, it also offers over a million more pixels than a standard HD television.
This display makes working on the new iPad absolutely exhilarating, and I believe it must be much better on the health of the eye because your eye can rest and take in the realistic image naturally without having to strain.
The iPad third generation also has a ‘dictation only’ version of Siri, and the capacity to connect to a 4G network. However it is a tad heftier than the iPad 2 weighing a hundredth of a pound more…geesh, what a fatty.
All in all the iPad 3 is totally amazing and worth the money, however I am kind of growing tired of Apple’s current system of releasing a new fancy gadget every couple of months, and thus leaving their loyal legions of fans dually satisfied and unsatisfied. I did not have my Macbook Pro 13 inch more than a week before the iPad 2 came out leaving my now dinosaur laptop in the archaic past. I question how long we will all continue to remain enthusiastic about products that are engineered to outdo themselves every six months. Especially considering these are not petty purchases, a grand every six months over a lifetime could be equated to a child’s college tuition.
That being said, go ahead and call me a hypocrite sucker, because I am going to buy the iPad 3 today. Its elite specifications are just too glorious to ignore!
