iPad 2 vs new iPad (iPad 3)

Ok, Apple fans out there… so there is no iPad3 right? The guys called it the New iPad. 😀 Like what we mentioned last night, it could be properly called the 3rd Gen. iPad.

So, let get down to the important specs since like the iPhone 4s – there were no change in the physical look. There were upgrade in the engine but not the body.


Here are my quick comparison of the 2 tablets.

Oh by the way, a Siri-sort of was also introduced here. It has 4G LTE, perfect for the Philippines since both Telcos are LTE ready now.

So there you go. Is it worth the upgrade? Are you keeping your iPad2 or start the Pre-order process now for the “New Ipad”?
