It may just be a different side. like the right side of the ipad 2 is touching the left side of the ipad 3.

but what i hope what happens and its what ive been saying since day 1.
a) put the speakers in the bezel so the sound is coming towards you, or
2) make the apple logo be the speaker

I still don't see what I would do with a big paperweight that can't do crap without connecting it to iTunes on a real computer.

I agree your Iphone should be your remote shutter and your ipad for live view and review.

Imagine the shoots when you have a customer watching over your shoulder. You can sit them in the corner and say here watch the ipad.. lol

You might want to check out iOS 5. I never connect my devices to iTunes on the computer anymore.

I wish they did a smart cover comparison to see if they still worked/fit.

I sure hope they add a second speaker like the one on my Galaxy. Music sounds so much better on it than my ipad. One of those small things that drive my crazy about my ipad. All the other improvements will need more space so slightly thicker is ok.

I always find it funny. when people are always wanting it Sleeker, thinner and lighter.. but when they get it, they end up covering it in a thick protective case

Hopefully the new 24hr battery

Before firing off an ignorant comment like that, you may want to get the facts. In iOS 5 you can use an iPad without a computer or iTunes at all.

Thanks for paying attention.

I hope it is thicker, the iPad 2 was just so ugly because it was overly thin. Why couldn't they make it a bit thicker and pack in some more battery? The iPad 2 was just anorexic.

Then again, I think the MBA is one of the ugliest laptops on the market (and the MBP I own is one of the prettiest).

Am I the only one who finds the iPad 3 actually thinner in the second picture?
For me it looks like they used the new Gorilla Glass to achieve the same strength with reduced thickness. That would allow them to make the rest a bit thicker, which is bonkers

If the battery is larger, which I believe to be true based on what they were saying with the logic board placement in the casing, I wonder how heavy it will be.

Slightly thicker shouldn't bother anyone, especially if it allows the next iPad to retain the amazing battery life of the current iPad (while upgrading the screen).

I hope its thicker.. I wished the iPhone was thicker. With such huge hands, it makes it hard to hold such tiny things.

Though, I said they would do something to force people to by new cases, and it looks like they did do just that. But that's good news for iPad2 owners... stores like Five Below will be loaded with iPad2 stuff soon

Just spent a week-long shoot, for a major U.S. retailer, using this nifty little app for iPhone & iPad viewing (amongst other things). No more huddling around the Mac.

True. Also, I love your avatar. Case Closed is the best.

Yes. They usually send out the invites about a week in advance.

I don't think most people give a **** about a slightly thicker iPad. The biggest issue I have with the iPad 2 is how sharp the edges are. For a company that prides itself on R&D, they make horribly sharp products that you are supposed to hold in your hands. The edges dig into the creases of your fingers when holding it for an extended period of time. Rounding the edge of the iPad 3 would go a long way to improving usability of the product IMHO.
