Got the above in my email from Apple last night – all around the world, this morning, thousands of people will be in lines or checking the front window every five minutes, waiting for couriers to arrive so that they can unbox their brand new iPads. It’ll almost be like Christmas in March for many. Big kids and their toys…
This will be most successful iPad to date
I believe that this new iPad will outsell the previous versions as there will be many upgrading from the first iPad and those who have been wise to wait for a retina-screen and decent camera, will take the plunge and finally make the transaction.
If you have an iPad 2, it’s not a must-upgrade-to option unless you intend to spend copious amounts of time editing photos on the move or take photos and videos with the new vastly improved camera (from less than 1 megapixel to 5 megapixels).
Unfortunately, I was too late to pre-order a new iPad in Hong Kong and will have to wait for the second batch to be available. I can’t wait to get my hands on it though!
Based on the new slightly thicker design, I submitted plans for a new Aranez iPad 3 Leather Case to my workshop. It should be available in a couple of weeks. Perfect for professionals.
So my last question is…did you get one?
