Apple’s new iPad is due to be launched this Friday but those opting to avoid the queues will face a longer wait for their shiny new gadget.
The third generation iPad was announced last week and has been available to pre-order since starting at £399. However, the Apple Store states a wait of two to three weeks before the device is dispatched. This applies to all six different models of the new iPad.
The main feature of new iPad sports a retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536. Apple billed it as the best ever screen on a mobile device.
It also has enhanced cameras, a better processor and 4G LTE connectivity. However, the iPad is a little heavier and thicker than the iPad 2.
If waiting a few weeks or braving the crowds for the new iPad sounds like too much then the iPad 2 is a better option. Apple has decided to keep it on sale and reduced the price from £399 to £329 for the 16GB model with WiFi only.
