Apple announced the new, third generation of the iPad this week to much fanfare.
Oddly enough Apple isn’t calling it the iPad 3… just “the new iPad”.
It’s just iPad?
That goes against Apple’s naming convention. That plus the debut of a color splashed version of the Apple logo have some tech journalists wondering if Apple is going to change things up again on the logo side.
iPads are expensive devices. Well built and entertaining, but other than a sharper display is there that much difference between the original iPad, the iPad 2, and now the iPad 3?
Not significantly. Will you be buying one?
Before you run off to spend $500 on the new device, make sure your finances are in good shape. These great reads can help you on that end:
