its called 'The new iPad'

not iPad HD or iPad 3 - which is pretty smart in the long run but still a tad confusing for the consumer in the long run, especially since iPad 2's will still be for sale at a discounted priceā€¦.

lil' bit annoyed they've upped the cam to 5 megapixels and have it recording in 1080p, now we'll see even more people taking pictures/videos with all 7.3inches of it Puzzled

What feature has it gained as to why you would purchase now? Not sure any of the hardware upgrades make it a more attractive purchase over when then 1 or 2 came on sale.

the screen, far better processor and RAM, apps are basically how every program / utilities is delivered now.

In the last 12months everyone is into mags / apps etc.

iphone 5 due out later in the year with a radical redesign. Anyone reckon this iPad update is a short stint to a completely new design soon after the iPhone 5? Not that that matters much, it's a big step up and worth buying pin it's new form.

All the above would be true when the iPad 2 came out apart from the screen.

It does nothing more than the 2 can albeit a little quicker.

Can't believe people want it enough to be sitting refreshing the site? It's hardly a rare and limited release

This:

The screen is way higher res than my 17" macbook pro (1920 x 1200) on a 10" screen (2048 x 1536), pictures and stuff are going to look great.

Plus I travel more now, so it has more use.

Pretty clueless about the iPad. If I've got a load of films/TV shows on my laptop will I be able to stream them wirelessly off an iPad?

Yup, use air video to stream anything over wifi or 3g
