The New iPad 2012
Posted on March 16, 2012
… came out in Tokyo today along with most parts of the globe.
All I can say is, the screen and camera is pretty nice. However, I didn’t get that “Wow” feeling. Remember going from the iPhone 3GS to the iPhone 4 and the feeling you got when you saw the Retina display for the first time? It was like, “Wow, holy xxx!”. Unfortunately, because we’ve had the Retina for a while now and knew it would eventually make it’s way into the iPad, when I saw it today my feeling was simply a “Oh, nice”. So yeah, I’m in no rush to upgrade at all – I think I can hold off until the iPad 4 comes out.
If you’re someone who reads a lot of books on the iPad 2, then I’m sure the Retina display itself in the iPad 3 is worth the upgrade. As for casual users, I’m sure the iPad 2 will do just fine for another year…
Update 2012 March 20th:
I caved in and bought one… sigh
