iLounge Editor Says He Got Touchy Feely with the iPad 3 Yesterday
On Tuesday we learned that iLounge editor Jeremy Horwitz got to lay his eyes - and even his hands - on the most eagerly anticipated device of early 2012 - the third generation Apple iPad.
Horwitz says he beheld the iPad 3 yesterday at the CES 2012 show in Las Vegas, Nevada. His response? Not much to write home about, as it turns out.
"I’d show you a picture," Horwitz wrote today, "but there’s honestly nothing to be seen. Think iPhone 4 to iPhone 4S: this device so resembles the iPad 2 that differences are only obvious when they’re placed next to each other. From the back, you could walk past this new iPad on display and have no idea that anything had changed."
The new iPad’s body is so slightly thicker than the iPad 2 that the change is unnoticeable on first inspection; a roughly 1mm increase will barely be perceptible to users... these changes are so modest that Apple could easily call this device the “iPad 2S” or “iPad 2HD” if it wanted to start the lettering game with its tablets.
"All I can tell you is that every company I’ve asked about the next iPad seems to think what I’ve told you above is correct," Horwitz concludes, "apart from the possible screen size tweak, which remains uncertain."

Well it is hard to redesign something that is already a good device

What people are not considering is that Apple is a business and have to take into account the market factors and competition. Why released a totally new crazy iPad when there isn't competition to squash it? Wait for the competitors to drop their latest fancy 'iPad killers' and then released the awesomeness of a totally new insane iPad... duh...

Are Apple even at CES? I call the highest amount of bullish*t on this guy.
"I’d show you a picture," Horwitz wrote today, "but there’s honestly nothing to be seen.
Horwitz believes the iPad 3 he checked out was at least six months old.

I'm sorry you can't seem to understand that but please do us all a favor and don't go call other people idiots because they decide to upgrade, not when you don't even know their reasons to do so.
As an iPad 2 user myself I don't really expect many changes. I'd think one of the most important ones would be the front facing camera though. Retina display isn't THAT needed. The iPad's display looks pretty good to me. And yes I do love my iPhone 4's retina display. And I'd probably love to have one on my iPad as well but I don't feel it is required in order to improve the user experience, however since some tablets will be featuring 1080p screens and all soon enough, maybe it is indeed coming to the iPad as well.

A retina display and a good camera are more than enough for me.<br><br>First, I read books on my iPad 2 and often read on my iPhone 4s just because the retina display makes the fonts sooo much crisper and cleaner.<br><br>Second, I waited for the 4s mainly for the camera and taking pics of the kids. The same camera would be great for my weekly Skype or Dacetime sessions. ( I live in Japan and often call family)

So WOW YES OMG those new features are simply AMAZING!! I really don't understand why I didn't go and stand in line for 867 hours to get one on release day
Crapples idea of a "new device" is one that looks exactly like the last one, has maybe a couple of new things internally, and the majority of changes are in the software which can be put on last years device as well. Whooptie doo

You should check your standards, they seem to be way too high.

Also you prove my point exactly when you said "the hardware is pretty different as far as I know", so clearly YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW FOR SURE WTF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT!! Just another trendy person who donated to Crapple's stock!
Also just for the record I'm not saying that the 4S is a sh.itty phone, well it kinda is because there is no jailbreak and IMO an iDevice WITHOUT a Jailbreak = COMPLETELY WORTHLESS! I'm simply laughing at all the toolbags who own an iPhone 4 and ran out on release day and waited hours and hours in line only to buy basically EXACTLY THE SAME THING they already got in their pocket! It's sad and pathetic!
So now were talking about another iPad that once again is gonna basically be the same as last year yet people will make a fuss and be like "OMFG DID YOU GUYS SEE THE NEW IPAD OMG IT'S SO EFFIN COOL!!!! Yeah it's exactly like last years model but the new iPad has a toothpick holder on the side now so if I get something stuck in my teeth BLAM just bust out my iPad and BAM got my toothpick right there in the new toothpick holder. OMFG I CAN'T WAIT I'm gonna go camp out at the Crapple store 2 weeks in advance just to make sure I get one!!!!"
Yeah that about sums it up

The only people that care about the outside being drastically different are the ones that want everyone to know they have the newest one. Its the "If it looks the same, how will people know I upgraded" mentality. I have no issues with my 4S looking like my 4. I don't plan to upgrade my iPad 2 to the iPad 3 but perhaps I will buy my wife one. Either way, I won't care if they look the same. The design is fine how it is.
