Quick Comparison: iPad 2 vs iPad 3

Well the new iPad is finally here and it has borrowed a few things from the iPhone 4S and has a few for the next generation of the iPhone (read improved processor).

To start off the new iPad retains the design of the iPad 2 and is marginally bulkier than its predecessor. Also it finally has the much awaited 4G LTE as well.

Though there is no Siri here, it has a taste of it in the Voice Dictation feature. And a host of camera improvements over the one in the iPad 2 just like it was with the iPhone 4S.

So here is a quick comparison between the iPad 2 and the new iPad to help you understand all the major feature changes or improvement that have been integrated into the latest version of the iPad.
