Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

If the new 64gb 4g is chf 859, what does that make my 9 month old 64gb 3g worth on the second hand market right now? I ask because I might consider selling it.

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

Digitec has most models in stock now, should be getting mine tomorrow. Wanted a white one but ended up getting a black one instead :-/ This afternoon, only the black ones were listed as "in stock" on Digitec's website. So I cancelled my pre-order for a white one and ordered a black one. Two hours later, the white ones pop up as well. Oh well.

Heard that the new iPad gets too hot to hold, specially on the bottom left corner. It also throws an error at times about it needing to be cooled down. Anyone facing this?
Not having either issue and as someone who just got an iPad for the first time I've been spending quite a lot of time with it! Probably depends on the processor needs of the particular app one is using.

mine arrived today - and is going to be exchanged tomorrow. Is it normal that this thing gets scorchingly hot? I used it for some basic PDF-markup in PDF Expert. After around 15 minutes it was disturbingly (and annoyingly) hot. Decided to format it and box it again. Will be in Zurich tomorrow anyway, so I'll try to get it exchanged. It also has some dust under the screen.

Good thing I haven't sold my iPad 2 yet :-/

the Retina display is awesome, though!

Which then raises the point whether it makes any sense to get it exchanged. Anyway, I'll have to see what they have to say. Perhaps it's fixable with a FW upgrade

Well we should all know by now that LiPo batteries aren't too happy about excessive heat ^^

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

Got mine on Sunday, taking the opportunity that was traveling in the US. I was debating between a (now) cheaper 2nd gen and the new one and finally opted for the latter. Here are my first impressions:
Heat: not experiencing any problem, at least so far. I have used a couple of intensive-cpu applications (LUX touch and one Business-to-Business app from my company) and no issues. Also watched a 45 mins video and works ok.
The resolution is simply great. I guess the next step would be to move to 3D!
The new camera is ok, I guess it would be nice to have a little flash to help with low light situations, but I frankly don't use the iPad for taking pictures anyway...
I bought the very entry level, a 16GB wi-fi. Disappointed with myself. Without uploading my music yet, I only have 5GB available (a bunch of magazines, and the app from the company is 5GB in itself). If anyone considering it and can afford at least the 32G model, go for it (or I guess even better, the 64 one ).

Well, I got mine exchanged today - not for the heat though. I was told that it's normal that it gets warm. They exchanged it for the dust under the screen. The new one has that, too, as I just noticed, but it's only visible when the iPad is turned off, so I don't really care. Anyway, the new one heats up just the same. Seems to be app-specific. PDF expert heats it up like crazy, even when it's idling. Penultimate, on the other hand, doesn't seem to have any kind of effect on the temperature. I'll just wait and see what the upcoming weeks will bring in terms of firmware updates. The iPad is very much usable, it's just a bit uncomfortable to hold.

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

Mine just arrived, it got delayed by customs on the friday of release, and I was on holiday for the next week so missed it, grrr....

Got back at the weekend and changed the delivery address for the office, having to contact UPS support to do so, as their website wouldn't let me, they told me I'd get it tomorrow, but now it's turned up. Can't wait to get it back home.

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

I was just reading this story on macrumours on how a lot of Chinese resellers were returning ipads in large groups. Apparently due to Apple's successful supply setup this time, the chinese reselllers could not make any profit and were returning ipads..
http://www.macrumors.com/2012/03/25/...-game-is-over/

so i was just wondering how Apple manages those returned ipads. Do you reckon they sell them back as refurbished or send them back to factory to polish/check and sell as new?

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

Played with a new one in the Swisscom shop the other day.

Personally I was a little disappointed because I could feel that it was appreciably thicker and heavier than my ipad 2.

Any other ipad 2 owners upgraded and have an opinion on whether you get used to this or not?

My totally subjective personal experience: I got one on launch day (sold my iPad 2), and was also a bit concerned about this, especially having really appreciated the lighter weight when I upgraded from the first version. However, although you notice it to start with, I've found that it actually doesn't make any practical difference to me now.

I've been using it daily since I got, mainly for reading and photos, and the better display is the difference I appreciate on a daily basis. The weight / size change is minimal, and I don't even think about it now.

i tried one in the apple store. i didn't find it comfortable to hold both from the heat and weight factor. then again, i found the galaxy tab too heavy and changed it for a galaxy note. a galaxy tab in a 7" form factor, with wider aspect ratio but weighing the same as a galaxy note would be a perfect device for me.

The weight + design of the different covers used is what makes a difference. My New Ipad is lighter than my wife's iPad2 in their covers. So choose the covers carefully...
