Apple unveils new 10.2-inch iPad for $329

 

It will replace the entry-level 9.7-inch iPad

As for other specs, Apple says the device weighs at just over 1 pound (483 grams) for the Wi-Fi model, starts at 32GB of storage and can be expanded to 128GB for $100 more, and comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera...

Apple iPad (Wi-Fi + 3G)

 

The Apple iPad 3G brings universal, always-on connectivity with AT&T, but for many potential iPad users, the added utility won't justify the premium price.

Sleek design. Gorgeous, sharp, accurate touch screen. Improved iPod, Safari browser, photo, and e-mail apps. A plethora of downloadable apps. Flexible and affordable 3G service plans.

Costs $130 more than the Wi-Fi-only version. Some applications don't work over 3G. AT&T is the only U.S. carrier with 3G support. ; Watch our Apple iPad video review

Review: Apple iPad 3G

 

The addition of 3G to the iPad may be a mini-revolution for mobile computing — provided you can actually pick up a signal.

Impressive power management: Battery chugged along for more than 8 hours on a 3G connection before going kaput. iPad Maps + GPS is absolutely stellar. Unlocked, it will work with any Micro SIM card (if you can find one). Finally an excuse to wear a man...

Limited to AT&T’s spotty 3G network in the U.S. Typing is a chore on the on-screen keyboard. Restrictive App Store policies may limit your access to porn and political cartoons (though there’s always Safari)

Apple iPad with Wi-Fi 32GB Tablet

 

Best-in-class touch interface

No way to manage files, no camera, no multitasking

Apple looks set to shake up casual computing with a tablet that offers clever design and ease of use. But that streamlined approach may also be the iPad's weakness.

Apple iPad review

 

Of course, we come to you with a standard list of complaints. The absence of an integrated video camera puts the kibosh on any hope of using the iPad for video chats, and without Flash video support, many Web pages look like Swiss cheese. But the...

In an act of aggressive tech convergence, Apple has consolidated your Netbook, e-reader, gaming device, photo frame, and iPod into an elegant, affordable supergadget. Features such as Bluetooth, 802.11n Wi-Fi, movie rentals, 10 hours of battery life,...

The iPad's large size is as much a hindrance as it is an advantage. As a jack-of-all-trades and a master of few, the iPad can't entirely mimic many of the specialized products it seeks to replace. The iPad's lack of front or rear cameras, Flash...

The Apple iPad is the first affordable tablet computer worth owning, but it won't (yet) replace your laptop.

Apple iPad (Wi-Fi)

 

After it was announced back in January, the unfortunately named Apple iPad ($699 direct, 64GB Wi-Fi) seemed like it could be the company's first major clunker in a long time: An expensive niche product that would inhabit a nebulous region between...

Sleek design. Gorgeous, sharp, accurate touch screen. Improved iPod, Safari browser, photo and e-mail apps. iBooks look fantastic and titles are easy to purchase and download. A plethora of downloadable apps

Lacks Flash support. No camera or video recorder. No multitasking capability. Cover Flow is missing from the iPod app. Doesn't ship with a case. Earbuds aren't included ; Watch our Apple iPad video review

A difficult-to-pinpoint target customer and a few pesky omissions are overshadowed by the excellent overall experience you get with Apple's iPad. And it sets the bar high for competing products in this nascent Internet tablet category.

Best iPhone 11 deals: Contracts are starting to drop in price

 

Itching to get your hands on the iPhone 11, Pro or Pro Max? Here are the best contract deals we've found

Once again it's Sky who comes out best for the monthly cost of the 11 Pro Max. And that overall bill of £1,128 is rather astounding, but yet again the only caveat is the measly one gigabyte of data.

Apple's iPad - The AnandTech Review

 

It's one of the most polarizing devices I've ever seen launch. It generated more hype, more attention and more emotion (both positive and negative) from those who witnessed it. It's a product that doesn't really replace anything in your life today, but...

Apple drew a line in the sand with the iPad. It set expectations for performance, price point, usability, ergonomics, display and quality of apps. It's rare that Apple does this. Normally Apple capitalizes on the mistakes of those who came before it by...

Review Apple iPad 3G 64GB

 

Entertainment Tablet. Is the iPad the heralded revolution? Can it

Precise touchscreen use; Outstanding IPS screen; Silent; Good battery life; Appstore and iPhone compatibility

Arrow keys are missing (virtual and hardware); Only Apple Apps permitted (no alternative browser); Few expansion options; iOS4 not yet available

At the moment, there aren't any serious ones, soonest the iPhone4, upcoming: Samsung Galaxy Pad and MSI tablets.
