    amazing device... as always...

    the 8" size really makes it more "mobile" and easier to bring along... at a really incredible .6 lbs? and as thick as a pencil? grabe...

    will definitely get one as an upgrade for my ipad2

    Just a bigger Ipod touch. They should lower down the price of ipad2 then. It sucks cause I just bought an ipad2 last month haha. I'll be getting this one though for my dad since mom is complaining about dad using her ipad always haha.

    Such a beautiful device especially since my 3rd gen iPad's only advantage now is the retina display.

    Two models:


    • Model A1454*
      • GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
      • UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)
      • LTE* (Bands 4 and 17)
    • Model A1455*
      • CDMA EV-DO Rev. A and Rev. B (800, 1900, 2100 MHz)
      • GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
      • UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)
      • LTE* (Bands 1, 3, 5, 13, 25)

    Which one will we get?



    We have bands 1, 3, 5 here... so, A1455 model it is... But will we also have CDMA? Not that it'll work but... but will there be a A1455 GSM version (like the iPhone 5's A1429 divide)? Or they're putting the CDMA chips in every A1455 model...

    This is insane! I just got my white iPhone 5 and I thought I would be happy with my iPad 2 until next year. I have to pre order n the 26th while i am still in Singapore.

    This is gonna be a tablet killer. I shall handover my iPad 2 to next in line. Good move I didn't upgrade to the 3rd gen.

    $329??? kill me now. This is the death of droid tab.

    Thinking of ordering from the US. Hmmmm does iPad carry a global warranty? like Macs/MBP?
