iPad Look and Feel
For the fashion conscious the iPad 3 is available in two colours; black and white - whereas the iPad was only ever available in black. With this being the case, a lot of new iPad users protect their piece of kit with a Smart Cover, which comes in a variety of colours.
Whilst all iPad's share some of the same characteristics such as 10 hour battery life and a 9.7" LED screen, the iPad 3 does have some unique qualities. The iPad 3 now has Retina display which means the picture or text on your screen is less pixelated. Also included on the iPad 3 is a three-axis gyroscope which senses how the iPad is moving, meaning game play will be more precise and realistic. See the table below for the key differences:
|iPad||iPad 2||iPad 3|
|Height||9.56 inches||9.50 inches||9.50 inches|
|Width||7.47 inches||7.31 inches||7.31 inches|
|Depth||0.5 inch||0.34 inch||0.37 inch|
|Weight||1.5-1.6 pounds||1.33 - 1.35 pounds||1.44 – 1.46 pounds|

iPad vs. iPad 2 Features
One feature that was lacking from the original iPad was a built-in camera. Although the iPad tablet might not be the easiest device to take a picture with, it's ideal to video chat on. The iPad 2 supersedes this by having not one, but two cameras; one on the front and one on the back. The back camera enables you to shoot HD video (720p).
iPad vs. iPad 3 Features
It’s very hard to see the differences when looking at them both but the iPad 3 includes added value with improved screen quality and a faster processor. Although 4G isn’t available in the UK yet, when it is, iPad 3 users will experience faster network speeds meaning streaming videos through the internet will be smoother.
