    My message flew the coop. I have to buy the new one because I only had my iPad 1 two months when they launched #2.
    you can imagine my total dismay. The price was the same but the #2 offered so much more such as cameras. Now a lot of apps require iPad 2 and I can't get them. So I feel I have to buy version 3
    I don't understand whether iCloud comes with it or not and I hate that nothing comes with Apple products, you have to buy every adaptor cover etc. It really adds up. Can I load iCloud and IOS into my iPad 1?
    Thanks to whomever replies

    iCloud only works on iOS devices with iOS 5.0 version or greater.

    I just got my iPad 2 about 2 months ago...so no the new iPad just isn't worth it for me. I have thought about buying a larger iPad 2 though now that the prices dropped. I have the 16gb & it would be nice to step up to a 32gb...at least when the iPad 4 come out (you know, the NEW new iPad ;-) I know to get a 32gb or larger. I'm so used to Android where you can just buy another SD card if you run out of space...or even use a USB flash drive...

    I am buying the new one for my wife (that's what I am telling her anyway lol), I didn't upgrade my iPad 1 for the 2 - didn't seem a big enough jump up.

    Will definitely buy the new one next time but I don't see any reason to upgrade from my trusty iPad 2 for no other reason...

    I got the iPad 3 on release day. I am sadly not impressed by it. The retina display improvement over the old screen is not as cool as I thought it would be. I also did not notice an improvement in processor speed. But all I use it for is netflix, angry birds and surfing.

    The leap from iPad 1 to iPad 2 was amazing. The jump from iPad 2 to iPad 3 is more like a step for me.

    Really, you are the first person I have heard that is disappointed with it. Did you sell / give away your 2?

    I swore I wasn't going to either, but when release day came I scooped one up. I gave my husband my 2, set of regretting it now.

    Yes. I waited for the release of iPad 2 from the 1 because I knew it would be better. I got the 3 because of the retina display but sadly am not too impressed by it. I see a very slight difference but that's about it. The voice dictation is pretty decent though. Much more accurate than google/androids software. Battery life is pretty much the same as iPad 2's. Probably due to the retina display. The Heavier weight is noticeable to me but doesn't bother me at all. Yes. I do have sensitive hands to weight. I do not notice the increase of thickness. The appearance of 2 and 3 are identical. As we have all read about.

    I lined up for about two minutes to get into the apple store. It was about 5 pm. The white ones were nearly sold out. I always get the black 16 gb with wifi only. If I need Internet, I tether it to my phone which has unlimited 4g.

    I will keep my 2 for 100% office use and my 3 to replace my office laptop almost exclusively. The VPN for apple is much better than the android phone I use.
