The new iPad: which feature do you like the most?

The new iPad: which feature do you like the most?
Now that the so-called "new iPad" has been announced, we are curious to check with you what new feature do you like most in Apple's third generation slate.

It sports the long-rumored high-res 2048x1356 pixels Retina Display, a new A5X processor coupled with quad-core GPU, probably of the mighty PowerVR SGX543MP4 variety, which can give the Vita a run for its money, a 5MP BSI camera sensor with 1080p video recording capabilities, and Siri for the iPad.

Not to mention that the new iPad is equipped with 4G LTE connectivity and a combined radio that supports the most bands out of all gadgets currently on the market, mentioned Apple - probably one of Qualcomm's new LTE radio chips that have everything and the kitchen sink inside.

So which one tickles your fancy the most? Check our poll and sound off in the comments below.

Other than the screen resolution and 4G that will be amazing for streaming stuff like Onlive and Netflix, this is more Apple crap. I would get an OG Transformer before I get this...

Everybody likes free stuff, are you trying to say jailbreaked iPhone users don't download free stuff on Cydia? More than 50% of the iPhone users that I know has a jailbreaked iPhone and downloads free stuff all the time. Android or iPhone, it really doesn't matter, we would all like things free.

As much as I like the resolution of the new iPad, but it still doesn't top ASUS Transformer Prime overall... iPad 3 more like iFailed on the 3rd one...

One thing to remember folks the incredible screen that everyone is gussing about is Samsung/LG made...... so what are these two, especially Samsung, OLED TiTains holding out from Apple that their upcoming Tablets will sport. I feel we are going to see a Super AMOLED HD RGB matrix screen form Samsung on the Upcoming Galaxy Tab.

Typical Apple marketing, making significant, but not major improvements, may be except for the screen resolution. Otherwise, a better 5MP camera, with 4G LTE??? I'm not sold...

There should be a voting option above for "None of the Above".

Yeah Apple just adds a few features to each device then either add a S to the name or a So Called Next Version. Not actually next gen It's just a big iPhone 4S that doesn't fit in your pocket. Already new Apple drops the ball every other year. Ha not bolding to well for the supposed iPhone 5 or 4SS whatever they want to call it. Just like Antenna Gate will probably be some flaw in it that Apple will some how say they didn't know about even though every manufacture test their products several thousand time before It's released. Hopefully consumers catch on to what Apple is doing and wise up. If there's Apple fans just hold on to your device of choice for 2yrs and you'll somewhat get an actual upgrade.

It's a product from Apple. That's all that needs to known for their to be massive hype surrounding the product.

hmmm better? as in what.. specs?... quality.. performance.. ??? why dont let the consumers decided..opps they already did...

Well, yes, theoretically it is better in specs. Quality: I like the Prime better in my own opinion. Performance: I would rather have the complexity of Android, with a little lag here and there, than the simplicity and smoothness of iOS. Even though with the new quad-core CPUs there is virtually no lag in Android. However, that is my own opinion. And the consumer's say that the iPad is better because of the Apple logo stamped on the back of it. They are so blinded by the brand name, they refuse to see the problems with the device; or that is with most cases, you seeming to be one of those consumers.

Noticed how Apple stock dropped when the so-called iPad 3 announced?

Wall street wanted them to raise the price.

It's all right. It'll sell like crazy anyway, so it's nice that Apple actually improved it.

I expect much more ownage from Samsung showing inept "creative" baristas and stupid blondie girls all standing in line questioning how will they recognize the new version from the old. And then a dude with a T-Mobile G1 (a 2008 phone) comes up - and does many many many things one still can't do with even a 2012 tablet lol.

I say the screen is a win, viva the HD screen :D

2. ilia1986 unregistered

I like the fact that it's iPad 2S. Nothing to get excited about. Honestly almost everything except Siri and LTE was already known. Oh and please don't start with the whole "The most amazing display ever". It's still 264ppi. That's not bad - but the world has already seen much higher pixel density. Even from them iPhone 4 (2010 lol). Also pay attention that only the graphics are quad core - while we don't know whether or not the actual CPU is.

Awww shutup

10. ilia1986 unregistered

lol umad, bro? I don't care how many features Apple put inside it. It has the same functionality as a digital picture frame with wifi and a browser. It's not really a PC.

I care enough to post my opinion. I certainly do not care enough to even consider buying it.

the a5x is cortex-A9 dual-core, it only has quad-core graphics. on the flipside the tegra 3 is cortex A9 quadcore with 8 core graphics. i dont see how apple is claiming that the a5x is more powerful than the tegra 3.

11. ilia1986 unregistered

Aw that's okay. You see, Apple is claiming that they invented the "Slide to unlock" mechanism, the rectangle shape, and the known universe. They also claim that Steve Jobs is the son of Jesus.
