packaged in a brown box. The iPad is the best way to experience the web email photos and video. All on a big beautiful Multi-Touch screen. With just the touch of a finger.The high-resolution 9.7-inch LED-backlit IPS display on iPad is remarkably crisp and vivid. Which makes it perfect for web browsing watching movies or viewing photos. With iPad there is no up or down. It’s designed to show off your content in portrait or landscape orientation with every turn. And because it uses a display technology called IPS (in-plane switching) it has a wide 178° viewing angle. So you can hold it almost any way you want and still get a brilliant picture with excellent color and contrast.The Multi-Touch screen on iPad is based on the same revolutionary technology on iPhone. But the technology has been completely reengineered for the larger iPad surface making it extremely precise and responsive. So whether you’re zooming in on a map flicking through your photos or deleting an email iPad responds with incredible accuracy. And it does just what you want it to.One of the first things you’ll notice about iPad is how thin and light it is. The screen is 9.7 inches measured diagonally. So overall it’s slightly smaller than a magazine. At just 1.5 pounds and 0.5 inch thin 1 you can use it anywhere. And a slight curve to the back makes it easy to pick up and comfortable to hold.To maximize battery life Apple engineers took the same lithium-polymer battery technology they developed for Mac notebook computers and applied it to the iPad. As a result you can use iPad for up to 10 hours while surfing the web on Wi-Fi watching videos or listening to music. While surfing the web on a 3G data network you can get up to 9 hours of battery life.With built-in 802.11n iPad takes advantage of the fastest Wi-Fi networks. It automatically locates available Wi-Fi networks which you can join with a

"...and averts of the new Apple iPad, I decided that enough was enough and I did it, I pressed the ‘Buy’ button on the Network 3 website. It was a hard decision due to the high monthly costs but I knew from that moment that I would not regret the decision. Initially I could not decide whether to order the WiFi model or the 3G model (Or 4G as the new version is known), I fly light aircraft as a hobby and I already knew of many pilots using their iPads ..."

"...that are available on the Apple website but the key ones for this review are that it has 32 GB of Hard Drive, 2 cameras (one on the front and one on the back), 4G cellular capability (more on that later), Bluetooth functionality and GPS.
==What's in the Box ?==
A USB cable to connect to your Ipad
An AC Adaptor (that uses the USB cable mentioned above as the lead to charge your ipad)
A pin-like device to open the Sim card holder

Responsive, high compatibility, good build quality
"...of this product line, the Apple iPad 2. I upgraded to this model a few months ago. Although I do not regret the upgrade, I feel more could have been done in the produce development.
Although I am generally against Apple, I feel their products are over prices and lack customisability, the iPad is different. In comparison to pretty much all other tablet on the market, the iPad is far more responsive, has better compatibility (if we ignore the flash ..."

in app games purchases are hard to turn off for some apps and allow my son to make in app purchase
"...and the app store for apple wins hands down, lots more free content and apps seem to have more stability.
ipad is durable. i have a 3 yr old who uses it a lot, but also drops it and bashes it a fair bit, so far so good my ipad has survived!
the ipad 3 is very fast to upload/download, syncs really easily with my sky drive and my google drive. there are some great productivity apps and it copes really well with cross platform editing.

Product Information for "Apple iPad 3 32GB WiFi + 4G" »
Manufacturer's product description
The iPad supports fast cellular networks around the world. You can download content, stream video, and browse the web at amazing speeds.The iPad offers the most comprehensive support for fast networks around the world. It's designed with two cellular antennas tuned to 12 different bands that access a larger frequency spectrum. That means you can travel almost anywhere in the world and get online. And your connection is always fast.For the first time, you can share the high-speed data connection on your iPad. If your carrier supports it, set up iPad as a personal hotspot to connect up to five devices - such as a MacBook Air, an iPod touch, or another iPad.Everything you do with iPad, you do through its large, beautiful display. And when the display is better, the entire iPad experience is better. The Retina display on the new iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution, 44 percent greater color saturation, and an astounding 3.1 million pixels - in the same 9.7-inch space. That's four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an HDTV. Those pixels are so close together, your eyes can't discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance. When you can't see the pixels, you see the whole picture. Or article. Or game. In ways you never could before.The Retina display on the new iPad wouldn't be possible without the powerful A5X chip. It drives power to every one of the 3.1 million pixels in the display. And its quad-core graphics processing makes everything you do on iPad feel incredibly responsive. From the little things like swiping, scrolling, and pinching to the big things like editing photos in the iPhoto, applying titles and transitions in iMovie, and, of course, playing games.The 5-megapixel iSight camera features a backside illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by sunlight or candlelight. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly becomes a frameworthy gem. And with built-in face detection that automatically balances focus and exposure across up to 10 faces, there's more room for more grins. So everyone look at iPad and say "Cheese."
