I believe it's 3GB.

"Belligerent and numerous."

SlingTV, Tablo and Plex to Roku 3s and Chromecasts on a Vizio 42" in the living room and a Toshiba 32" in my bedroom. Xbox 360 client on a Westinghouse 42" in the game room. Tablets EVERYWHERE!

 

I used to update the Dish Network FAQ but not anymore.

Hmmm. Should I order 32GB or 64GB today. How big is a true 1080p 2 hour movie?

Was always thinking 32GB, but now not sure.

Just having 4G alone is worth it for me. Will try to pre-order today.

Last year, I had planned to sell my iPad 2 and upgrade to the iPad 3. Sadly, my circumstances changed, and that won't be possible. However, I'm not really upset about it (the iPad 3... not the circumstances).

As much as I'd like to have the better resolution screen, I don't watch movies or TV on my iPad, and while I'd see the benefits on other apps, it's not enough to bother me too much. I have wi-fi only, so the 4G doesn't interest me, and while I'm glad they are upgrading the camera specs on the iPad (one of my criticisms of the iPad 2 is the camera quality), I'd come near taking a picture with my phone than with my iPad, so no complaints (though I'm disappointed they didn't mention anything about the front facing camera). All in all, a GREAT device I'd love to have, but not one that I feel pressure to go out and upgrade... not a dig at the iPad 3, but rather a huge compliment for the iPad 2. :)


I'm LUSTING after the Apple TV though... :mad:

No matter what they call it, my guess is the medical market will be a good one for Apple. I can see lots of hospitals and doctors being able to use these to better look at x-rays, MRIs, etc.


tablets in general should. already making their way to medical industry....only problem is that era of people are from the group that didn't grow up on PC's so itll take a lil longer to get that to adapt...

The 16gb is really too small for me on the iPad 2. I was planning on getting a 32gb back when I planned on getting an iPad 3. With the increased size of apps due to higher resolution graphics, as well as videos and the like, I think the 64gb would be smart for those who can afford the additional $100.

Hey guys, one quick note. All opinions are welcome but lets please watch the "thread crapping". If you don't like Apple or its products, it doesn't do anyone any good to do it here and may earn you a thread ban. Let's try to be constructive. :)

Thank you.

Verizon allows you to upgrade their phones (3G or 4G) while still keeping your unlimited plan. Hopefully they will do the same with tablets...

I wouldn't be surprised with AT&T however... :rolleyes:

If you've seen what ATT has been doing to theirs lately.....id assume so. Or theyll just stick to the throttling after XGB/month...

It does. I wonder if it handles larger originals than Photoshop Touch (1600x1600)?

Edited to Add: I now see it supports up to 19 megapixel photos. Nice!

blu ray disc's are 25GB for the single layer ones(50GB DL).

I'm pretty sure I remember "The Dark Knight" is 2.5hrs and comes in at about 35GB and that had some IMAX filmed scenes in it(dunno if that would take up more data or not but I would assume it would...)

Not all the movies on SL discs use up the 25gb... some use considerably less, but that's Blu-ray. You won't be finding anything NEAR Blu-ray quality on iTunes....

wasn't saying they did take it all up. hence the dark knight's "feature" portion only taking up 35GB of the 50GB disc space.

Can just think about it in the future. Apple letting you DL a 35GB full 1080p movie and your carrier just jumping for joy that you just blew through your monthly cap and will pay overages. lol
