I didn’t get to make this point on yesterday’s episode of “Tech News Today,” but I’d like to get this out of my head. I purchased the iPad (3rd generation) on the first day of orders back in March. It was the first iPad I had bought for myself. It had everything I wanted at the time — LTE, Retina Display, and servicible cameras.
At first, I felt burned by Apple’s announcment of the 4th generation with its new A6X procesor. However, after an hour or so, I realized I wasn’t burned. I got to use my iPad as much as I wanted during that time. It is a great device.
However, the spec bump is enough for me to switch devices. I’ve sold my iPad 3 and will likely order the iPad 4 (which I plan to sell for the iPad 5).
