    People who have got/are getting their delivery/shipment of the New iPad/iPad-3 today can you guys please put your first impressions on the following points.

    • If you still have or owned the iPad-2 and sold it to get the iPad-3 can you guys put both the iPad’s side by side and compare how thick and bulKy the new iPad is compared to the iPad-2 ? Does the new iPad-3 feel really heavy when holding both the iPad’s in hand iPad-2 & iPad-3 ? Any other cosmetic changes noticeable ?
    • When you received your shipment, which ever shipping company they delivered it with USPS or Fedex or whatever the shipping company is used in U.K for the U.K customers, was there a Fedex Packaging on top of the iPad-3 Box or did they just directly gave you an iPad-3 Box?
    Enjoy Your New Toy ! :D

    Mine just arrived - UK delivery.

    Turned up in a TNT lorry, told me it was full of them.

    Arrives in a cardboard box with device in it's proper packaging inside!

    Fantastic to get a pre - 9 delivery! :D

    When you say arrives in Cardboard box, you mean there is a shipping company packaging on top of the Apple iPad Box right ?

    Oh so there is a shipping box along with a apple box, thats what I wanted to know...Wanted to gift it to someone and din't want the surprise element to be disclosed by directly getting the iPad box in hand rather than having a shipping box inside which there is a iPad Box ! I hope I have understood correctly !

    what about the Bulk and Thickness factor did you ever have a iPad-2 before this, what do you think how does the thickness and bulk of the new iPad vary from the iPad-2 ?

    Well physically I can't feel any difference.

    However, it fits better into my original Tuff Luv IPAD1 case then the same make, IPAD2 case.

    I don't care for the camera at the back so that is no issue for me that this is covered up. I don't have the IPAD2 to compare as that sold yesterday, but if sitting in it's case turned off, I would not able to tell you the difference to be honest.
