I'm new here.
I work in IT but have never used an Apple product before, however I happen to be in the market for a tablet...
At first I was only considering Android devices, as I was told there were many limitations with iPads, but then I realized most Android tablets were low quality, especially when it comes to the screen.
I could recently compare an iPad 2 with an iPad 3 (new iPad, I know...) and the latter is so much better in terms of readability of text (e.g. magazines).
I would use the iPad for many purposes, like watching tv series, reading magazines, surfing the web, playing the occasional game (no FPS probably), possibly using maps offline.
Now, the iPad 3 price puts me off buying it but, having read about some tricks to expand its storage, I might go for the 16GB, wi-fi only, version (this would be as much as my wallet can afford).
- My main doubt is:
if I buy an iPad 3 now, assuming it comes with ios 6, will I be able to downgrade it and then jailbreak it?
- Also, what do you think the iPad 4 will bring to the table next year? is it worth waiting for upcoming announcements from Apple? I tend to believe the iPad 3 is a good choice, future proof wise, but I'm no expert!
thanks in advance
