Despite preorders being available, the Apple Store is not updated to accept iPad 3 orders as of this posting.

Kind of makes sense not to have Siri. Siri needs a constant connection to work. iPhones have that. iPads do not. If you are in a situation where you have no WiFi and no 3G/4G service initiated, Siri will not work.

The "much more memory then a PS3" is a bit misleading; I mean, you're talking about a disc with 30-45Gb of Data (see: Uncharted) ... I get what they mean, but it's not really apples/apples, but it's a great point of how far things have come in the years since, and how cutting edge they've come with texture capabilities.

Quote:True for a wifi iPad but a 4G iPad would have the same opportunities to be connected that an iPhone 4S would. Personally, I don't believe Siri is ready for a "wide" roll out just yet and that is why Apple is holding it back from other products. They are still getting the bugs out. On another note...I wonder what the size difference between a 2hr 720P movie and 1080P movie will be? I would imagine downloading either over 3G/4G would take up a significant, if not all in the case of 1080P, of the plans data allotment. -Keith P.S. And what is up with the name? We now have "iPad 2" and "The new iPad". Sorry, that seems dumb to me.

As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity. - Hunter S. Thompson, 1958, from cover letter he wrote for a newspaper job.

I wonder how much I can get for my iPad 2 now
Posted March 07 2012 - 11:34 AM
I won't camp out overnight at the local Apple store, but I will pick one up later this year, I think. Should extend the life of my MacBook Pro as I can reduce my non-work related usage of it by using the iPad instead.

2:50pm EST Just talked to Apple rep. Store still down. Expecting to be up within the hour. Apple not taking preorders over the phone until website store is active. Again, store not up yet for preorders.
Posted March 07 2012 - 11:58 AM
The store is up but it's slooooooow. Edit: Nevermind.
Posted March 07 2012 - 12:20 PM
3:20pm EST Update. Just got through to Apple rep. Store still not up. Apple employees have no ordering information so you cannot order over phone or web. Still expecting store to be up soon.
Posted March 07 2012 - 12:30 PM
The store was up briefly within the last hour, but then it crashed when going to the shopping cart. I think it is overwhelmed by demand. (I'm in this for the Apple TV....can't afford the new iPad just yet.)
