new iPad 3The new iPad (not iPad 3, not iPad HD - now it's just "iPad") went on sale just after midnight this morning Sydney time, being one of the first places in the world for customers to get hold of the new tablet.

People queued for hours to buy one, but there was not the same mania as there was for the iPad 2 when it was released as the new iPad is a more incremental improvement. It boasts better screen resolution, better 5MP camera, and faster processor, but the 4G LTE connectivity is wasted in Australia as it uses a frequency that is not supported by Australian carriers.

Pricing at the Apple store for the iPad 3 is:

Wi-Fi
A$539 16GB
A$649 32GB
A$759 64GB

Wi-Fi + 4G 
A$679 16GB
A$789 32GB
A$899 64GB
