An all new iPad was released today, officially labeled as the 4th generation iPad. Itís basically a beefed up iPad 3 with an all new CPU, but itís otherwise much the same, with the same aluminum enclosure, same great 10″ retina display, and available in both black and white with the standard 16Gb, 32GB, and 64GB configurations. Both Wi-Fi and LTE models are available of course, and there is faster networking with both. The major differences from the prior generation are really the following:
A6X CPU, 2x as fast as A5X
FaceTime HD camera
Wider LTE range
Pricing continues to start at $499 for the base 16GB model, LTE adds $130 to each model as usual.
Been away for a while with a few health problems but it is good to be back!!
So here is my quandary……….I have iPad 1 and to be honest it is starting to show it’s age. What with no upgrade to iOS 6, and huge improvements in screen resolution.
I let the 2 go by and also the New iPad but now we have this 4th generation…….what to do?
The mini is not for me. Sorry but I just can’t see a true Apple fan wanting a mini as a substitute for a full size iPad. Perhaps as an extra for those that can afford it, but not a substitute!
The 4th generation seems to be what I have been waiting for. A6 chip, and retina screen + wifi upgrade etc. I have some time to make up my mind however as I have to save up the pennies to get one by which time we will have heard all the cons as well, like being able to fry eggs on it for example!!
What about the “5” though? What do you guys think may appear in the next generation? Will I end up feeling peeved like the people that bought the New iPad…….what do you “experts” think I should do?
Your question will be asked for every Release to come. Will the next release be better - Yes
Same for cars, radios, tv and athlete.. So if you want a new I-device and you have the money - Get it. But the best choice is to stick with the one you got till it breaks or is no longer is able to meet your needs. And since most iPads are used for reading, e-mail and browsing; only you can judge.
So here is something that may help you decide. Let your ipad choose; flip your iPad in the air heads or tails. If it still works then keep it, if not; well now you really need a new one.
