First, the setup was smooth and was done using a backup I had stored in the iCloud. That was really neat, and it saved a lot of time — I was done in less than 5 minutes. I was up and running in just a few minutes. After the initial setup was done, I went back in and changed some sync preferences since this iPad had a little more space so I could carry some movies with me now.
The display is absolutely amazing. The HD clarity is a big improvement over the iPad 2. The dictation feature seems to work well also. The device itself looks almost identical to the predecessor. If I had to say anything, it might be a tad heavier, but if it is actually it can’t be by much.
More to come later as I use the device a little more. At this point, I say “well done, Apple!”
