Apple iPad 3 Wi-Fi

Designed with BFR-free, PVC-free, recyclable aluminium and glass to reduce environmental impact.

Product Description

The three iPads look almost exactly the same but, to be fair to the new iPad, it brings a massive upgrade. The 2048 x 1536 pixel Retina display has four times the resolution of the previous model. The bar is yet again set too high for the competition. And it’s a leap worth several generations. Apple did well to make sure the monstrous screen is well covered in terms of graphic processing with some extra GPU cores too and the performance is flawless.

The 5MP camera is an improved version of the one on the iPhone 4 and the video recording is duly upgraded to 1080p. There’s Wi-Fi hotspot support too but that’s carrier-dependent and our Wi-Fi-only iPad naturally doesn’t have it.

The long list of cons shouldn’t come as a surprise. Some of them are down to Apple’s way of doing things but we’ll look closer at the screen outdoor performance and the reported overheating in gaming or video playback.
