New iPad (3) Review: Q&A

New iPad (3) Review: Q&A
Alright, people, the moment has come - the new iPad is here, and we've given it a good, personal, in-depth look. In short, our iPad (3) review is now published, answering pretty much every question that you may have about the tablet. Oh, wait - this just isn't possible! There's no way we've said absolutely everything that can be said about the device. We're fully aware that our review will be read by many different users out there, each one with their own needs and interests. And as hard as we may try, we simply cannot delve that deeply into the device's offerings.

That's why we've come up with this sweet Q&A post, where you can ask all the questions you have about the device, that remained unanswered even after reading the review. Of course, we'll have to ask the most passionate fans out there to withhold from commenting (in case they don't have a specific question, that is), because that could make the experience of everybody else somewhat frustrating, and our goal here is to actually be of use to someone.

In order to ask questions, simply post them in the comment section below. We'll do the needed research (if needed) and answer them in a new post in the beginning of next week.

So, what would you like to know?

what is the ratio of the app sizes between the apps optimized for the new ipad and the ipad 2?

Is it really worth the upgrade from the 2nd gen iPad? Because I don't find a screen, a graphics card upgrade and a camera upgrade (which I don't really care for) worth upgrading; and would whether wait for the next iPad that should have an all new design and better specs, such as having a quad core processor.

How comfortable is watching widescreen movies on it? I know the resolution is not an issue, but don't black bars ruin the experience?

For some of the graphically heavy games and 3D tours/ the graphics keep up? I remember seeing some skipping at times on the iPad 2. I'm wondering how well it does. Also...a simple question...what's the start up time comparison for the iPad, iPad 2, and the 3rd generation iPad?

Does the extra space needed now for apps for higher resolution content take up that much more space to warrant stepping up a size (16GB to 32GB for example), or does it not make that much of a difference?

I was actually wondering the same thing. For Apps that are updated for the higher resolution...what's the differences in file size?

Does it do Flash? Kidding :) I am interested in the battery life. I know the new one is like 70% bigger or something (2500mAh I think) but does using the device at full throttle last the promised amount?

Is it worth the money?

Why was there no video in the review. I saw the unboxing and the pic but I never got to see the display in action in any of the reviews.

A smug sense of superiority and the admiration of dirty, dirty hipsters.

If you have the option, can you compare a white color with the previous iPad 2. I think in 90% cases white on the The new iPad(3.) looks much more yellow or red than the white on iPad 2. Please prove me wrong.

How many more touch sensors does the new iPad have compared to the iPad 2 (or if you can throw this in there, the HP Touchpad)?
