Battery life. Haven't used it long enough to tell but I only used up 20% in about 2 hours of heavy multimedia and streaming use. This is about typical for my Ipad2.
Thanks for all that great initial iPad 3 ("New iPad") info and review!
So since you are an owner of an iPad 2 & the "New iPad"...regarding heat...your saying that the new iPad gets much warmer than the iPad 2? Does the iPad 2 get warm at all?
Also...what do you think (or anyone else with the new iPad) of the new iPads camera. It's supposed to be better than the iPad 2's camera...any quality comparisons?
