I have an iPad 1 and skipped the iPad 2 but am upgrading to the iPad 3. I plan to buy a new screen protector for my iPad 3 but also, there are two items I'd like to use from my iPad 1 with the iPad 3.
The first is a case that's made by Monaco. It's a leather book type case that the iPad fits in and it covers it up.
The second accessory is an iPad 1 stand made by AiData. It is a stand that sits on a desk and holds the iPad.

I have read many articles today about the iPad 3 and some are talking about upgrading from the iPad 2 and if it works with the same accessories. I know from what I read the iPad 2 was said not to work with the accessories I have but does anyone know what the dimensions and size of the iPad 3 are vs. the iPad 1 and if it would work with these accessories?

Thanks,

Mark

An iPad 1-fitting accessory will probably not work well with it, but it depends a bit on how "form-fitting" something is.

But just for the record (not sure why you couldn't just google this, I found it in about six seconds):

iPad 1: 242.8mm x 189.7mm x 13.4mm
iPad 3: 241.2mm x 185.7mm x 9.4mm

So as you can see, quite a bit of difference in thickness there. I can't imagine a stand not working okay, but cases would be quite a different story (due to the width as well as the height).

Bottom line: if iPad 1 stuff worked for the iPad 3, every manufacturer would be overjoyed, as all that unsold iPad 1 stuff could just be re-tagged and sold at full price. There's a reason why that's not happening, but in some isolated cases (like, for example, Apple's own iPad stand, which has never changed) it might work.

I'm invoking the 'iTouch' rule to demand that I can call it whatever I want.

It's actually NOT called "the new iPad," in point of fact. It's called "iPad." Look on the back of one when you get one.

Personally since the iPad is updated yearly, I prefer to call all of them "iPad" and differentiate by year, so 2010 iPad, 2011 iPad etc.

Mine tends to go by 'the iPad', as its the only one in our house. That's about as elaborate a name as it needs, I think
