Google Nexus 7 vs. Apple iPad

 

We all know the Apple iPad sits atop the 10-inch tablet market like an MMA fighter straddling the octagon fence after a first-round TKO. That fight is over, for now, but the battle for 7-inch supremacy is still going strong and our new favorite...

Review Apple iPad 3rd Gen. 2012 4G Tablet

 

Improved? The launch of the new iPad 3 is probably one of the hig

The now price-reduced iPad 2 with a lower screen resolution, Asus Transformer Prime quad core tablet and the upcoming Full HD Android tablets from Acer and Asus.

New Apple iPad

 

Breathtaking display. The best app selection of any tablet. Excellent 3G and 4G network compatibility

No camera settings. 4G data usage is difficult to monitor. Apps are starting to strain the processor

With a gorgeous ultra-high-resolution display and the widest selection of apps you can get, the new iPad is the best large-screen tablet around.

Apple iPad 3 review: Hotter than ever

 

So, the iPad is dead, long live the iPad. That's also part of the deal. The retirement of the first-generation of the Apple tablet is nothing out of the ordinary. There used to be the iPad and the iPad 2. Now, we have the iPad and the iPad 2 is the...

9.7" LED-backlit IPS LCD touchscreen, 2048 x 1536 pixels; scratch-resistant, oleophobic coating ; Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity, carrier-dependent hotspot support ; Optional LTE connectivity (data only) ; Optional GPS with A-GPS support (for the 3G...

iTunes still required for uploading most of the content ; Reflective screen struggles outdoors ; Same CPU as the iPad 2 ; Heavier and thicker than the iPad 2 ; No Flash support in the web browser ; No standard USB port ; Non replaceable battery ; No...

New iPad - same question - is it worth the upgrade? Well, depends who's asking. It seems the customers who gave Apple another record-breaking debut weekend had the answer already. For anyone coming from the original iPad, the latest Apple tablet is a...

New iPad: The Skeptic’s Review

 

I sent back the iPad 2 , but I'm keeping the new iPad . Two years ago I wrote my first iPad skeptic's review , a more oblique - and personal - opinion on Apple's tablet than the traditional SlashGear review. A year later I did the same for the iPad 2 ,...

Apple iPad (2012) Verizon Wireless

 

Fantastic Retina display; Sharp 5-MP camera with 1080p video; Speedy 4G LTE data; Improved AirPlay functionality; Best tablet app selection

Bottom left side gets warm; Can't FaceTime over 4G; 50MB limit for iTunes downloads over 4G; Front camera doesn't do HD

A jaw-dropping Retina display, fast 4G LTE speeds, improved camera and an unbeatable selection of apps make the new iPad the best tablet, period.

iPad review (2012)

 

What's in a name? Or, more importantly, what's in a digit? Would that which we call an iPad by any number less than 2 be less sweet? That's the question

Amazing display ; LTE speeds ; Improved camera ; Comparable battery life with LTE

No 128GB option ; Slightly larger and heavier

Apple's new iPad offers neither a massive improvement in performance nor functionality, but the new display alone makes it a great update.

Apple iPad (2012)

 

The iPad 2 corrected some of the biggest problems and omissions of the first iPad, but with the third model, Apple is done fixing holes. Instead, it's beefing up all of the internals of its signature tablet to attempt to deliver on the experience Steve...

Screen actually is 'Resolutionary ; Great battery life ; Powerful graphics processor ; Responsive screen ; 200,000+ optimized tablet apps ; Excellent rear camera ; 4G LTE capability rocks

iOS showing some age ; 4G models split (AT&T or Verizon) ; Front-facing camera still VGA ; Slightly thicker and heavier than iPad 2 ; No Siri

For the first time, the new iPad feels like the device Steve Jobs promised two years ago. This is a capable post-PC device and should usher in another great year for tablets.

Apple iPad (March 2012, 32GB, Wi-Fi, white)

 

Editors' note: This review was updated March 18, 2012, with CNET Labs battery test results. Also, we made correction to the new iPad's screen brightness.

Apple's new iPad includes a stunning new screen, matched by a quad-core graphic processor and the world's largest app and media store to feed it content. There's a proper 5-megapixel rear camera now, with 1080p recording quality. Optional 4G data from...

The new iPad is slightly heavier than last year's model; apps and movies optimized for the screen might take up more space; and ports for HDMI, USB, and SD require adapters.

With a host of improvements--faster graphics, 4G wireless options, a better camera, and a gorgeous high-res screen--the latest iPad cements its position at the head of the tablet pack.
