Apple iPad 3 is an impressive iOS tablet launched in March 2012, which counts with a fast 1 GHz Dual-Core processing unit, a 9.7-inches display, and two cameras, a 5 MP back side camera and a 0.3 mega-pixels front side camera. We will get a better understanding of this tablet's advantages when we get into specific details.

This time, it seems like Apple forgot about optimizing the weight in this 23 ounces tablet. The iPad 3 just has 9.5 inches long and 7.31 inches wide, but it still manages to hold a 9.7 inches display. The iPad 3 is just 0.37 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest tablet devices out there. Apple offers the iPad 3 in two different color options: black and white.

Apple packed this device with a very good 9.7" display, and a resolution of 1536 x 2048 , giving this tablet a very nice graphic quality. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

Apple ships the iPad 3 with a good performance 1000 MHz Dual-Core CPU, bundled in an Apple A5X chip with 1 GB of RAM memory. The iPad 3 has a great 32 GB internal memory and while it doesn't come with a slot for an external memory card, it it is more than enough to store tons of apps, games, photos and videos without thinking about running out of space at all.

This tablet features two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 0.3 megapixels front-facing camera. This tablet can also capture videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second. Additionally, the camera includes a couple of useful characteristics like auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization and geo tagging.

This tablet features a 11560 mAh big capacity Li-Polymer non-removable battery that provides the iPad 3 a great battery life. An issue to evaluate is that this tablet's battery isn't replaceable so you can't change it when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, even though with its 11560 mAh you will probably replace this tablet before that becomes a real problem.

This device features wifi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot). This device doesn't have a SIM card, because it doesn't work with GSM networks.

The iPad 3 also includes a handful of interesting characteristics as Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS Navigation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

Apple sells this tablet for 675 dollars, which is a high price for comparing with similar tablets. This device is probably a great option for you no matter whether you will use it as a social device, need a work tablet, will use this tablet to play games or want this tablet to take lots of photos. When you buy this tablet you also get 10W USB Power Adapter, Dock Connector to USB Cable and Documentation.
