Still thinking it might have "one more thing" Haptic for "HD", but just guessing.

guess retina display is a relative term they can toss on anything they wish in the end...?

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.

I believe it's 3GB.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

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:

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.
