What People Are Saying About Apple's Newest iPad

Well, have you been wondering what exactly all the hype about the new iPad was all about? The latest iPad from Apple hit the retail market just recently, and only roughly a year following the debut of the iPad 2.

Many people have reviewed the iPad as a graphical delight to their eyes with all the pixels and amazing screen appearance (mainly the key point of the newest tablet by Apple). Another upside to the new iPad is the HD camera/ camcorder that allows users to capture high-definiton videos and pictures right from their tablet. A third key point that people are enjoying with their new iPad is the amazingly fast network speeds since it is 4G capable!

The only thing that I can see (very few) people complaining about with the new gadget is the hotness it gives off. This seems to be something not many people have complained about could be an issue since the item is so new. One way to check this would be to simply head out to your local technology store and feel one of their display models. Those displays run for hours and would be a great way to find out if there is much truth behind the heat issue concern. The other complaint is that besides the 4G connectivity and screen resolution being much better, the new iPad is not very different from the iPad 2.

Apple's Newest iPad

With Apple's newest iPad, generation three coming out this Friday, there are some very big differences in it and the previous two. The first thing is it is just called iPad, not iPad3 or HD like many speculated. Also, the screen resolution is going to be phenomenal. On top of that, the processor is going to be much quicker provider more rapid delivery of content to the owner/ user. The 9.7 inch screened tablet will hit stores Friday with a $499 price-tag, the same as what the iPad 2 hit stores at when it was released last year around this time. Since the tablet is compatible with 4G networks, it will be much faster for mobile browsing as well. With all the advances in technology usually comes a sacrifice of battery life; not in this case. The executives at Apple did it again, making the battery life of the iPad longer, thus giving it an edge over their competition.
Also, Apple says that the product is more targeted to people in the tablet market that currently do not own a tablet at all, or the first generation iPad owners. They realize some iPad2 owners will also upgrade but are mainly focused on the iPad1 owners. It will be interesting to see the screen, which Apple boasts contains a million more pixels than a HD television.

Improved Cell Phone Battery Model Released by Droid

Droid has finally solved the problem faced by many cell phone users; battery life. According to recent tests done on the Droid Razr Maxx, it has a battery life capable of outlasting even the lengthiest of conversations. It has a claimed talk life of 20 hours on a single charge or 14 hours of continuous video play. With a advancement like this, it is no surprise the phone retails at $300, but who wouldn't spend an extra hundred and get over double the battery life?!? Another advantage the phone comes with is over double the amount of memory compared to other standard mobile devices. Unlike the Apple iPhone which comes with 16 GB of memory, the Razr Maxx comes with 32 GB. Like the sound of that? Say goodbye to dying cell phone batteries and hello to the Razr Maxx by Droid.

Apple thought to announce new iPad March 7th

Earlier this week Apple sent out invites to reporters to attend an iPad event on March 7th. It is thought that the newest iPad made by Apple will be revealed during this conference. The new iPad, only coming out about a year after the second generation iPad is thought to have been advanced in screen resolution and wireless connectivity with 4G wireless providers. With the current second generation iPad still fetching almost $500 a piece, it will be interesting to see what price tag this new device will carry. We can only wait and see what next Wednesday will bring for Apple and their ever-changing line of technological toys and products. I am curious to see how Apple's customer base will respond to the quick turn-around in product offerings for iPads.
