Apple’s new iPad has finally become available for review in the United States and the United Kingdom and so as expected a significant amount of reviews has begun to fill the web as tech and news sites enthusiastically test out Apple’s latest product ahead of its official mass release on the 16 March.
Most importantly all these reviews appear to have one thing in common – the third generation iPad was worth waiting for and is the tablet to get – assuming you don’t already own its predecessor.
Here are just a few of the positive reviews that have published:
The Verge: “Yes, this display is outrageous. It’s stunning. It’s incredible. I’m not being hyperbolic or exaggerative when I say it is easily the most beautiful computer display I have ever looked at. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that you hold this in your hands, or maybe it’s the technology that Apple is utilizing, or maybe it’s the responsiveness of iOS – but there’s something almost bizarre about how good this screen is.”
The Wall Street Journal: “It has the most spectacular display I have ever seen in a mobile device. The company squeezed four times the pixels into the same physical space as on the iPad 2 and claims the new iPad’s screen has a million more pixels than an HDTV. All I know is that text is much sharper, and photos look richer.”
The Telegraph: “If you have been holding off getting a tablet then this is the one to go for. In my view, it’s the best that money can buy. Existing iPad owners who are thinking of upgrading should take a look at this new device. You’ll see the difference very, very clearly indeed.”
Slash Gear: “Steve Jobs would have approved of the new iPad. With its focus on the holistic experience rather than individual boasts around its constituent parts, it’s the epitome of the Post-PC world the Apple founder envisaged. No lag or delay; no frustrating cloud settings or arcane minimum software requirements. Simply pick up, swipe, and you’re immersed in a joined-up ecosystem. Apple doesn’t need another revolution, it has already started one, and the new iPad brings a fresh degree of refinement to a segment in which it is undoubtedly the king.”
