Apple iPad 3 is a mid level iOS tablet launched in 2012, counting with a 9.7 inches multi touch capacitive screen, a quite powerful 1000 megahertz Dual-Core processing unit, and two cameras, a 5 megapixels back camera and a 0.3 MP front facing camera. But let's get into some more details.

This tablet just has 9.5 inches long, but it still manages to hold a 9.7 inches display. Being just 0.37" thick,this tablet is incredibly thin and good-looking. Apple didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 23.35 oz device. This tablet is offerred in two color options, black and white.

The iPad 3 has a very good 1536 x 2048 9.7" screen, making everything look very good. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

Apple decided to equip the iPad 3 using a fast Dual-Core processor running at 1000 megahertz, bundled in the Apple A5X chip with 1 GB RAM memory. The iPad 3 counts with anice 16 GB internal storage and while it doesn't count with an external SD slot, it should be enough to install a couple hundred applications, but it may not be suitable if you are planning to install some of the heaviest games currently available or taking tons of photos and videos.

This device offers wifi connectivity (which it can share with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G fast internet connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, a slower 4G type or fast 3G internet connection, supported by HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This tablet works with a Micro SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

The iPad 3 features two cameras, a 5 megapixels back camera and a 0.3 megapixels front-facing camera. It is capable of shooting Full HD 1920x1080 videos at 30 fps. The camera also features a few nice characteristics: face detection shooting, auto-focus and geo tagging.

The iPad 3 uses a big capacity 11560 mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery, enough to provide this tablet with a marvelous battery life. An issue to evaluate is that this tablet's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to last shorter, though with so much capacity you will probably replace this tablet before it becomes an issue.

This device also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other devices, computers and accessories), GPS Localization and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your tablet close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet is probably a little overvalued considering it is priced $ 355, and some similar tablets are being sold cheaper than that. The iPad 3 is a great option for you if you need a device for gaming, will use it mainly for social networks or will use it as a work device. This device is packed with 10W USB Power Adapter, Dock Connector to USB Cable and Documentation.
