On the off chance that they’d have them for sale, I stopped by my local Best Buy today. I saw the new iPad and while the new screen does make the screen on the iPad 2 look pixelated, I had to have them side by side before I could tell.
I played a couple games, watched some clips, and played around with the camera. Yes, “the new iPad” does have all round better specs, so I’d get one over any other tablet. But I already have an iPad 2. I don’t see a reason to replace it. If I still had my original iPad, it would have been boxed up on launch day, but “the new iPad” is only an evolutionary step over the iPad 2.
P.S. Yes, I do have the funds to buy “the new iPad”; I just don’t see a reason to do so.
