Well, that puts you in such a small minority bro. I purchased one just to try it out and I love mine. It works very well and the app selection is great. Being a big Android fan, I was very skeptical before I spent the money but I definitely do not regret my purchase after 2 weeks.

Of course, you could get an Android tablet and get bottom of the barrel services and apps. #pipebomb

Well I think this survey shows iPad will be THE tablet again this year. It also shows the issues reported are isolated incidents.

Honestly, it is a nice tablet, but pretty much anything with an apple logo and the letter 'i' will do well.

I would just go with the ipad 2 instead of te 3 unless your going with the lte model. A midely better camera/screen/gpu isn't worth 100 dollars in my book. People can't even tell the difference in the new and old screen.

i agree with you 100% i'm at work with my ipad 2 my coworker pulled out the "new" ipad and we compared similar apps and functions... the difference is so minimal its crazy! lol the only big difference was with viewing pictures and zooming in to text... i'm gonna stay with the ipad 2 no need to upgrade... but for a user that does not have an ipad i recommend them getting the new one... only because its an upgraded model... $100 less is basically cheating yourself... might as well get something new

gestures,that makes things easier than earlier ipads!

For 100 is gestures really worth it. Most people don't use a camera on their tablet so who cares about that. The most important camera on a tablet the one in front is no better. The screen is great but most people can't tell at all with video. Its good for text that is zoomed in but even still the iPad 2 is plenty clear. The gpu is faster but the iPad 2 doesn't have any noticeable lag and its screen is a lower res so it doesn't need the faster gpu. The storage is the same so unless your getting lte I don't see the necessity for the iPad new. Not to mention the 2 is thinner doesn't get as hot and lighter. I can understand if someone wants the iPad new if 100 dollars isn't that big of a deal too this person and they want 4g. If you have the iPad 2 definitely not worth the upgrade. Maybe if you have the iPad 1 and want the 4g model. It really pays to wait for the an iPad with an a6 in it in my opinion.

I dont' know about gestures really worth a hundred bucks or not but i definitely enjoy using that and yes the dispay does matters the only reason why i thought of given a try is the display on that walled-garden OS and also since you seem like a experienced iOS user i wanna ask if there's a way to delete photos now i'm talking about the photos that i download or taken through camera?

i forgot to put 'not' in my question

38. good2great

all you have to do is go to your camera roll or photo stream album and select the photo you want to delete then touch the trash can icon... iOS 5.1 allows you to delete saved photo stream photos now... i hope this answers your question... if not, i apologize for the confusion.
