Also comes with rather unimpressive cameras. 5 megapixels and 0.3 megapixels is what manufacturers put into kid's toys these days. Paying top dollar for some fancy Apple gizmo should include something better.

re: New iPad: What Apple Left Out
I'm completely underwhelmed with "the new iPad". I was hoping for a design change on a par with the scope of design changes we saw between the iPad and iPad2, I was hoping for a borderless screen and I was hoping for the A6 processor.

A better quality screen on a device of that size isn't going to be enough for me to buy in.

How about a better camera in front, instead of the measly 0.3 megapixel 99 cent store camera it has now. 2 MP in front and 5 MP in back have been standard in tablets for over a year, yet Apple glosses over this limitation, calling it a "VGA resolution" camera, just like it still calls the camera on the iPad 2 "720p resolution" instead of the miserable 0.7 MP it really is.

I had read one pundit (I forget who) who was the only one saying that they wouldn't include a Retina display because they wouldn't be able to do it without sacrificing weight and size, especially if the processor also got an upgrade. Looks like he was partially right, but that they (correctly) chose the screen and graphics performance over a little weight.

re: New iPad: What Apple Left Out
For me the only disappointment is the size and weight of the new iPad. I was expecting more thinner and lighter product. As far as Siri and new iOS is concern, it is only a matter of time. Don't really care about Quadcore as long as it's fast, responsive and good with battery life. Over all I am pleased with the product. Good logical upgrade.
