CNET has a good article that has links to everything you need to know about the iPad. The new retina display is a great enhancement for the iPad3 and now gives the iPad the same viewing quality that we love on the iPhone. The iPad is definitely a great mobile device. But be warned, many app developers still develop apps exclusively for the iPhone and not the iPad and vice versa. So, make sure when you download an app from the App Store that you check if an app is developed exclusively for the iPhone or iPad. iPhone exclusive apps run on the iPad but shows up only as the size of the iPhone screen. To develop an app that works on both devices requires additional coding to make the program run on various sizes. You can learn about this at Start Code's advanced lab.
