the New iPad. If you buy the iPad2, then you know you have the iPad2.

Granted;but for someone buying a used,unboxed iPad,he should know how to tell the difference.

I'd you find yourself using it as a hand warmer, then you have the new iPad. ;)

If you hear a sucking sound from your wallet as you exceed your 4g data limit you definitely have an iPad 3.

Or if you have your iPad 3 Wi-Fi version tethered to your iPhone for 4S on a grandfathered AT&T "unlimited" 3G plan you not only hear the sucking sound but you get a message from AT&T that says the following:

ATT Free Msg: Your data usage has reached 3GB this month. Using more than 3GB in future billing cycles will result in reduced speeds. You can use Wi-Fi to help avoid reduced speeds. Visit www.att.com/datainfo or call 866-344-7584 for more info.

At least they didn't charge me for the message!

We just bought my husband an ipad2 yesterday. There are no differences on the box compared to my new iPad box (other the info on the back). Also what I thought was very weird is the back of his iPad just says "iPad" not "ipad2"

And the background picture on the iPad itself. On the iPad 2 it's a grey background with a light blue top and the new iPad has a picture of the sea.

That is a new iPad wifi only, forget the number on the box though, if you are unsure check to see if the same number is on the back of your iPad.
