In itunes under "store", "view my account", "manage devices", what does it show your new ipad listed as? Mine is showing up as an iPad 2. Is this right or because I restore from my iPad 2 backup?

Yeah, when I sync'd my new iPad from my iPad 2 it renamed it "so and so's" iPad 2. No biggie.. Interesting though!

I set mine up as a new device and mine shows "iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G"
Same thing here. this is my first ipad and it popped up as that as well. Pretty funny to me. As long as i know its the new one i dont care what apple calls it ;)

I am seeing the same issue. I originally restored from my iPad 2's iCloud backup... so I thought that maybe a setting carried over.

I tried the "reset all settings" and that didn't work. So I ended up erasing it and setting up as a new iPad.

Still seeing iPad 2 under the iTunes "Manage Devices". It hasn't caused any issues with downloading apps/music, just annoying to see it not say "The New iPad". Hopefully it'll get fixed in an iTunes update.

Yep, just checked mine...Glad I did, still showing the old two and underneath it a new two...:D If I go to the Apple products page it says third generation though...Somebody just screwed up...Good heads up, I removed the old one as a buddy has it now.

I believe there have been a few threads where this was brought up previously so it's widespread...doesn't really mean anything AFAIK though.
