iPad “3”: Just iPad, no real changes

After weeks of speculation on tech blogs, Apple unveiled the new iPad and revealed, well, that’s just it. It’s “The New iPad.” Yes, that is actually what they’re calling it. A breakdown:

-The New iPad has LTE (an international standard for 3G and 4G devices, to put it simply, the iPad can now transmit and receive data faster).

-A much improved HD screen. Text and images are clearer and sharper.

-A faster processor.

-A five megapixel camera.

-Voice dictation, but no Siri for the iPad yet.

And that’s it. If I had an iPad already, I wouldn’t spend another couple hundred dollars for the upgrades it’s offering. This seems a lot like the iPhone 5; sure, it’s a noticeable improvement over the iPhone 4, but you’re not really missing anything world changing by using an iPhone 4.
