[Apple] iPad 3/HD Roundup thread - Page 14

post #131 of 388
I still dont have an official usage for my Touchpad... XD soooo new Paddy doesn't really effect me much, but kinda sad that Apple Enthusiast Fan will be WILLING to cough ~1k (just rounded off big number, because they'll be buying accessories and other stuff) to buy another tablet just cus is the next best things... is like I brought 2012 BMW, and 2013 BMW is coming out and i want that too.


But on the serious note, their upgrade from paddy 2 to 3 is pretty significant, that high res pixel will be great for artist/graphic designer/drawing on-to-go

Apple also is offering AppleCare Plus, which covers free two cases of accidental damage for a $49 fee each incident. (It may in fact be a replacement to the standard AppleCare they used to offer, not sure.)

I was talking about slates/smartphones, not dedicated portable consoles. The processor in the Vita is more powerful, the graphics may not be, it depends on clock speed, but the iPad 3 is powering a resolution 6 times higher than the Vita, so performance will of course be less than what the Vita can muster.

iOS sharing framework is pretty pathetic, pretty sad how he touted that with such a sorry feature set.

No, you said MOBILE device, and then you said smartphone or otherwise, so clearly the Vita would have been included.

4G might be an nice option for some, but I don't find myself interested in paying for another data plan-- the wi-fi version is the better value in my opinion.

My own answer: Nothing. I have used an iPad 2 several times and it's very snappy. Same thing with a Transformer Prime, hardly noticed any difference between that and the iPad in terms of speed, from a user standpoint. Benchmarks may show something different, but that's a benchmark, uses the hardware to its maximum.

My answer to your question: I already have IPAD 2 and it's dual core. I WANT A QUAD CORE IPAD! lachen.gif

No, it doesn't. The Tegra 3 is in the Prime, and coming to more devices soon.

Apple's become a bit more of a spec warrior lately. The SGX543MP2 was a real power house, and the most powerful in any mobile device, smartphone or otherwise, until now. Quad-core graphics are impressive.
The Nexus/Prime? Wait...how did they get Tegra 3 to work with LTE? I thought there were limitations. (Off topic now, I know, but I'm curious)

Ah did I? My mistake. I was referring specifically to smartphones and slates.

The camera quality should be the same as the 4S. It's only 5MP but remember that's more than enough to fill up the iPad 3's display, and it still has 1080p video recording.

No idea, I wasn't aware it doesn't work with LTE. (Are you sure, I don't think a processor would not be able to work with a cellular technology?)
