The new iPad is available today and is expected to break sales records.
Analysts predict that Apple will sell at least 55 million iPads by the end of 2012, bringing total iPad sales up to 100 million, Hayley Tsukayama writes in the Washington Post.
The reviews of Apple’s newest product are glowing.
Jason Snell with MacWorld writes that the retina display on the new iPad eclipses its predecessors.
“Of course, the display on previous iPads was no slouch,” he writes. “But the moment you pick up a third-generation iPad, you can tell the difference. All the slight jagginess and oddly misshappen characters we take for granted on lower-resolution displays just vanish on the retina display, and you’re left with the same sort of typographic excellence you’d expect in a printed book.”
“The new iPad doesn’t introduce anything that we haven’t seen before, either in the iPhone or in rival tablets,” New York Times reporter David Pogue notes in his review. “Apple just took its white-hot iPad and added the latest screen, battery and cellular technologies. For the same price as before, you can now get an updated iPad that’s still better-looking, better integrated and more consistently designed than any of its rivals.”
If you’re lucky enough to score a new iPad today, you can keep its screen clean, shiny and fingerprint-free by using it with a pair of Agloves.
