iPad (2012) vs iPad 2 and iPad 1

Posted by mitch on March 16, 2012

Summary of my thoughts so far:

  • The screen is amazing.
  • The 2012 iPad is not noticeably thicker than the iPad 2 and is still thinner than the original iPad.
  • The 2012 iPad feels heavier. It’s not technically significantly heavier, but that weight in your hand for an extended period feels heavier. It also feels like the weight is distributed differently, though I am not sure that this is true.

Some pictures:
