    OK, so I just wasted 30 minutes of my life going thru page by page of stuff on different threads with people guessing, arguing, asking if it's a bust, arguing about the name, etc -

    I worked all day, and missed everything !!! :mad::mad::mad:

    Can folks just post the facts of the new ipad3 on this thread so other members can come here and read what this thing has and what improvements were made over the ipad2 -
    (if you're a hater, PLEASE go back to the other threads and hate!)
    thanks

    And I missed 30 seconds of my life thinking that this was a factual, detail laden thread.

    Yeah, I'm in a pissy mood, but don't be lazy. Don't expect us to do your work for you. And please learn the joys of reading and patience :)

    So you come here thinking that you would see everything for free, and then you tell me NOT to expect "us" to do all the work for you?

    You are a real piece of work Tom, thanks for not skipping this thread. :rolleyes:

    Why would you come to a forum for facts instead of apple.com/iPad?

    I didn't want Apple's version, I wanted your guys version, (the real version).

    The iPad has a 20 core CPU that runs at 10GHz, 192GB of RAM, and has a 100MP camera.
    ------------------
    You could save yourself 15 minutes or more by going to http://www.apple.com/ipad

    EDIT: In response to what OP just posted above this:
    Anything you find us saying here is going to be the same thing you find there, since the device isn't even out and no one owns one to play around with it.

    We don't have any "version"...because it hasn't been released yet, not until the 16th. None of us will know until then.

    I thought there was a BIG announcement this morning?
    Front Page had the timer ticking down to 1h 23m when I had to leave for work.

    THAT is prolly why I couldn't find and "facts" when I got home from work?


    What was the "big announcement" if they didn't give out any spec/details?
    So what gives, I don't get it?

    Huh? Apple DID have an announcement today...and that's what on apple.com/ipad

    Those are the official specs of it. None of us know what it really is like yet because it isn't released until the 16th.

    They had a keynote announcing the product, it isn't available until March 16. The Apple website's iPad page IS for the one they announced today. If you want a detail-by-detail breakdown, look there.

    Main points:

    Retina display
    Improved cameras
    Siri-like "Dictation"
    A5X processor

    Not much else will be known until the devices actually ship in a week.

    Sounds pretty weak, (like the 4s) :eek:

    Well, on a "high note", their stock hit an all time high, so why would they give a rat's patoot about us now :D

    ----------

    Thank you sir :)

    Ram ..... TBA haha

    to be announced by the first group to tear one apart and post up what it is
    (most likely an embarassing 512 like the 4s, unsurprising no one could find a ram spec for the 4s after that keynote)

    I don't remember hearing anything about the front camera being changed at all. Just the rear.

    I can tell you that I downloaded 5.1 on my phone and it made it 4G. Wicked fast.

    All that us on here know is what has been released by Apple We have no more information then that at this time. There are lots of opinions, but no facts outside what apple has released.

    If you want a good analysis of the new iPad, a site like engadget would be a good palce to start.
