  • It looks more like an iPad S than and iPad 2 to me. Bit of a spec bump but nothing that exciting. That’s not to say it isn’t a great product.

  • Speedy

    Does it have any USB ports?

    Does it have Bluetooth?

    I agree, its not a whole new “must have”, but for those who held off, it sounds good. For those wanting to upgrade, it might be viable to wait. Effectively, its almost at the same spec as an iPhone 4 with camera, facetime, apps, weight, size, ect. Yes iPad has Bluetooth.

  • The original iPad is now only £329 which sounds like a bargain to me. I can definitely live without the new features.
