      A late present for those who bought the ipad 2 at Xmas for $399. How’s that screen?

    iPad 2 does not use the single-core A4, but the dual-core A5. When iPad 2 was first released, Steve Jobs claimed that iPad 2 would be the “first dual core tablet to ship in volume”.

    Regardless, iPad 2 should have been retired (and retained iPad 4) with the iPad Air/Mini Retina launch last year. I guess they don’t want the iPad 4 to undercut the sales of iPad Air.

      Hey Daniel, Can you confirm if this new iPad 4 / iPad with Retina Display LTE will be compatible with WIND here in our nation? Like the new iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina are. I heard this is gonna work with T-Mobile in the states.

      No Wind on iPad 4, as it does not support HSPA AWS. TMo may work at certain major cities not because of HSPA AWS, but because they re-farmed their 1900 frequency to HSPA in those areas, thus the iPad picks up on HSPA 1900 at locations that TMo did the re-farming.

      The iPad 2 was kept around for schools.

    Nothing new to see here. Typical overpriced Apple products.

    I still think MS releasing Office on iOS is a mistake. Unless they are charging for it.
