Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

This isn't really the topic of this thread, but aren't you confirming that the warranty might not be valid world wide and restricted to where it was bought? :

IMPORTANT RESTRICTION
Apple may restrict warranty service to the country where Apple or its Authorized Distributors originally sold the Apple Product.
or am I missing something?

1. Based on your experience you cannot simply say "the warranty is not worldwide".
2. I just called Apple Geneva...told them I have an Iphone bought from US with a broken display...do I have international warranty? They said yes...
3. I do not proclaim what I read on the net. The links were from Apple US when you travel to EU or Switzerland...
Well, isn't that what people are saying, even the Apple "people" thought the warranty was valid worldwide, but when they went to actually fill out the paperwork with the individual serial number, it didn't work?

But again, this is supposed to be about the new iPad, and not warranty issues...

Had it been Steve Jobs, it would have been announced with a lot more razzmatazz but the product would have been the same. I think this is a decent upgrade, but not a necessary one for iPad 2 owners.

It's what was expected, more or less. I don't see a reason to be let down. We're getting higher than HD quality screen on a pad, it must be very impressive in person.

And I can understand them wanting to nip the whole the number thing in the bud. Just call it the new model, people are smart enough to understand. The Ipod was like that for years, people just called it the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. generation.

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

I was reading that Apple intends to have just updates of a product without having names like Iphone 3, 4 or whatever...so we will not have ipad 3 and then 4 but just new versions of a product...has anybody else read about this?

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

I agree that it is not an upgrade for ipad 2 owners...right now I have no reason to update...but it depends what one uses the ipad for....

This seems to be the strategy. Officially numbering them starts to get silly once you get past 4 or 5. Plus, there's less built in obsolescence that makes people feel gypped. "I just bought an Ipad 2, they're coming out with the 3 now?!" If it's just the "new Ipad", everyone has an "Ipad" and it's somewhat easier to swallow. Like with the Ipods, people who really care will bother to find out which generation it is anyway.

I have not read about this, but thinking about it now, it makes sense. It is not like they have the MacBook Pro 7 or the MacBook Air 2 or similar, only with their iOS devices...

May be a good thing to just call it the iPad and iPhone, but punters (like me) may get duped when buying them second hand...

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

It makes so much sense to drop the numbering. You refer to it like a car. "I have a 2012 model". Works fine for computers...why not portables?

Moving to Switzerland from US in a month. We are going to buy our daughter an IPAD. Besides price is there a reason to buy one in US vs Switzerland? For example does the wifi matter depending on area?
Nope. Depending where you would like to buy your music, shows, etc, what atters is where you have setup your iTunes account. If you have the US one (my guess) then I understand you need either a credit card from the US or pre-paid iTunes cards from USA, but you can still access the content from Switzerland.
Ah, the wifi is not dependent on the area, so an iPad bought here or there would work in both continents.. :-)

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

I received a 'Shipped' email on Saturday with a dispatch date of 19 - 21 March. I'm guessing that its been impounded by TNT at their warehouse and will only be delivered on the official release day.... unless I go to there with my order number, passport etc.. and try blag an early release

I too received a shipped email on Saturday and the tracking number doesn't show anything on the tnt website. Could be that TNT are yet to update their system as the last two days were weekend. The wait continues....

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

Is it a good idea to buy the Ipad 2 (old one) now, considering the prices are slashed? I dont see too much of a difference for a relatively non fussy user

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

I am thinking the same myself, as saw the prices in mediamarkt below the 400 chf threshold for the 16GB one... I believe it still makes sense to buy an iPad 2 if you don't have one.

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

I'm wondering the same... Anyone got any experience or an educated guess? I need a new one urgently. I killed my iPad 1 with coffee a few day ago. The question is, should I risk trying to get one on Friday or should I go to Media Markt and get a iPad2?
