iPad 3 vs iPad 2
iPad 3 vs iPad 2 – Verdict
OK, first time tablet buyers – we'll deal with you first. The new iPad 3 is now the best tablet on the planet, thanks to its eye-boggling Retina Display, enviable App Store selection and impressive performance and battery life.
So, ask us which tablet we want right now and we'd say the iPad 3. It's even competitively priced, when compared to the £500 (with dock) Asus Transformer Prime and £365 Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
But if you own an iPad 2 right now and are loath to chop and change so soon, we have two words for you: hang on. In a year's time, we expect to see an iPad 4 (aka iPad fourth generation or iPad 2013) packing the same incredible Retina Display – but with a whole load of new features and quad-core processing power. So the iPad 3's an enticing – but not absolutely essential – upgrade.
