Good news for Apple fans – there’s a new iPad being released next week.
I’m sure it’s going to be awesome. The most touted improvements are a much higher res screen, faster processor, and better camera.
But for me, especially since I’m in a new job not earning as much money, I don’t think I will be upgrading any time soon, unless Apple unveils some other killer feature that compels me to want one. And I can’t imagine what this sort of feature will be. I’m very happy with my iPad 2. It’s become an essential tool in my daily life. But I never find myself sitting wishing the screen was better (last time I did that was my iPhone 3Gs), I rarely use the camera except for the occasional skype or Facetime (but use my 4S camera all the time for snaps), and the iPad 2 speed is pretty zippy as it is. The only thing I regularly wish was different with my iPad was more storage capacity – but that’s just my silly fault for going for the cheapest 16Gig model instead of splashing out for a larger one. I’m continually having to delete stuff to free up more space on my iPad.
So iPad 3 sounds exciting – I’m sure it will maintain Apple’s dominance in the tablet market. But unless they have a big surprise in store it’s probably not for me… at least not just yet.
