Read Kelly Hockey’s great review of the iPad3.
I was so excited to receive confirmation that I had been one of the extremely lucky ones to review and test the iPad 3, altho I didn’t think it would arrive due to not believing that this could be real.
Then to receive a knock at the door at 8am 7 days ago with a very wet post man holding a package for me, then excitement over come me and I realised it wasn’t a hoax it is 100% real.
So after like a little excited child at Christmas I set upon to open this package to find a brand spanking new iPad 3, which was fully charged thankfully as I just wanted to play with this new toy
It feels a bit daunting when you first turn it on to set it up but it was so easy to do and took a matter of a few minutes and away I went.
The wifi speed is amazing I was expecting it to be a little slow but it was the complete opposite I was very impressed with this.
The screen resolution on the ipad3 is superb and defiantly is a good point to this device.
It feels heavy for how small it is but you soon get used to the weight and you don’t realise after a few days of using it, it is a little on the strange side to hold but once I got a leather case it made it feel easier to hold!
The sensitivity on the screen is amazing I thought I’d have trouble with it but it is very responsive with no delay
You also have the option to either use your existing apple account (if you have one) or setting up a new apple account is simple and easy to do.
Once you are up and running there are a lot of excellent apps to down load which if you are already an apple user you will know the free apps altho on the iPads the free apps do not show up all the time but they are there, they are also there to buy which isn’t expensive and buying them allowed you to have full use of the app and not a demo like app with the free ones.
It is quick easy and simple to down load the apps, I had down loaded lots more with in a short space of time these added to the ones.
With a device like this I was expecting the battery life to be shockingly short lived but I was truly knocked back at how well the battery lasts, the only down fall I have with the battery is how long it takes to charge!
One thing I am really impressed with is you can swipe the screen and it takes you through what other pages/apps you’ve been on, this is a really good idea because there is nothing worse than being in one app weather it be social network or games ect and one swift swipe of the screen and it takes you to another page, a bit like a book!
The text is superb and the picture and video quality are totally amazing, so sharp and crisp something you wouldn’t expect from such a small device but it’s truly amazing I am totally blown away by it.
Id personally like to thank product testing for giving me the chance and opportunity to review and own the latest gadget out on the market, I’d also like to tell people not to give up it is real and not a hoax! This is a brilliant piece of machine if you don’t already own one get out there and get one!
