At a Glance

Apple's third-gen iPad is defined by its amazingly sharp and crisp high-resolution display, as well as its option for 4G. The heavier weight is a disappointment; but the display, coupled with Apple's solid app ecosystem, makes this tablet the one to beat.


  • Vivid, high-resolution display
  • 4G LTE option via Verizon


  • Slightly increased weight
  • iOS 5.1 still lacks large-screen optimizations
