Anyone having rather choppy scrolling in safari and news reader apps? I haven't used a previous iPad to compare but I assumed it would be nice and smooth like my iPhone 4s..
I played with them I'm the apple store today and they all do this. It seems like the refresh rate on the display is too low or something. I guess they need to leave something broken so they can sell us an iPad 4. To be fair, I think the 2 does this as well, but with the lower resollution it comes off more as a motion blur than a choppiness.
Does the user experience suffer. I am still using my iPad 1 and it is working fine. Is it similar to the refresh rates on the first generation?
It is silky smooth, just like every i-device I've ever owned, currently iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and now 3. I am extremely sensitive (as in picky) about a smooth UI. There is simply nothing else out there that gives you the consistently silky smooth UI experience, iPad 3 (expectedly) included.
Not sure what trance fusion was seeing... I had the iPad 1. It's still the same silky smoothness when scrolling in Safari, except now it's vastly sharper.

It's not that it's jerky or laggy, it's like the display updates slowly or something and the text seems to jump rather than slide. It seems to cause me eye strain when using it for more than a few minutes to web/news browse.
