4G LTE in the U.S. only from AT & T and Verizon telecommunications network covered; Canada covered by the telecommunications network from Bell, Rogers and Telus. For more information, please contact your carrier.


No wonder Apple is getting in trouble in other countries.


oh sure!!! of course if you go in blind and think that you will get 4G because " Apple says so ", then the blame does not lie with Apple alone...not defending Apple here, just being logical.

You know China Unicom has these big hoarding saying " 14.4Mpbs "..okay I knew they were kidding but still went in and said " I want it, here is my phone please insert the new sim card and give me 14.4 Mbps ...ooh no sir, what we meant was that the Ihpone 4S can download at speeds upto to 14.4Mbps, we top off at 7.2 Mbps!!!

PS: by you I meany anyone in general and not specifically YOU!!

Verizon's 4G is blazing fast here in the US. I spent a week of vacation last month in western N Carolina, no wifi, so I bought 10gb of data for my ipad (after all, what are the Blue Ridge mountains if a guy can't watch GoT or MLB). Speedtest regularly clocked my download speeds at just over 33mbps, up at nearly 20. No issues whatsoever, even in bumfuck Appalachia.

Played with some iPad 3's at the store today. Screen was nice, but they felt noticeably heavier, thicker and hotter than the iPad 2's they had there.

I think they are heavier from a larger battery? I heard the faster processor needs more juice.

Re: iPad 3 (Screen Protector Anti Glare)

Postby ceevee369 » 12 May 2012, 16:49

Whatever iDevice Apple launches- it ends up being Owned.
I did some real-time comparisons with my iPad 3 vs the 2 and it is indeed remarkably faster in Graphic calculation on HD games.
Yes a bit heavier - but not a concern as the battery tends to hold on despite the new CPU.

I got one advice to share (and await recognizes if proven right):
If buying an anti-glare screen protector, you might mostly be disappointed with the pixelation, reducing the HD Retina clarity. (even on an iPhone or Android phone)
I tested Moshi, Screenguard and a few others but removed them each time not being satisfied.
not so long ago, i stumbled upon a local brand. Their technology seemed better then other so I had a meeting with the owner / manufacturer.
NEVER EVER - I saw an anti-glare screen protector quality as such. Highly recommendable and finally a keeper.

Why anti-glare? For reasons of reflection yes, but gamers on iPads will be more satisfied being able to move fingers quickens.
Why Solid : if you don't play fast pace games and prefer reading the www news, not feeling annoyed with the mirror effect, go Solid - anti-scratch

The brand and its new "HAG" technology I truly endorse:
