Original by Thomas. The new iPad is the third and current generation of the iPad, a tablet computer designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc. It serves primarily as a platform for audio-visual media including books, periodicals, movies, music, games, presentations and web content, and is available in black or white. Like all previous models, the new iPad has two models, a Wi-Fi only model and a Wi-Fi + 4G model. Both models have a lithium-ion polymer battery that lasts up to 10 hours, a new dual core Apple A5X processor, a VGA front-facing and 5 megapixel 1080p rear-facing camera designed for FaceTime video calling. The device boasts a QXGA (2048×1536) display, four times the resolution of the iPad 2. Found the previous text on Wikipedia; not to plagarize or anything. The reason why it looks no different is because it looks exactly the same, I mean EXACTLY the same (as same as the iPhone 4 looks to the iPhone 4S) as the iPad 2. All they did is a little to the iOS and the camera (made it 5MP) and the screen resolution and called it an iPad 3. I think I might get one. Not the 4G model, of course. I'm not a billionaire and I know I just got a SMART Board, but that was home money. I have bank money. And also, you're probably thinking, "Didn't you spend some of that bank money on your Failure in Italian Automotive Technology (FIAT) vehicle? Yes. I put a thousand dollars twords it and now i have about six hundred in that bank account.
