The third-generation iPad, announced last week, will be sold through Apple's retail stores and the Apple Online Store on Friday 16 March 16 from 8am local time. In addition to Australia, the new iPad will go on sale tomorrow in the US, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland, the UK, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

Along with Apple's retail stores, the new iPad will also be sold though Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, Dick Smith (DSE), Big W, JB Hi-Fi and Target from tomorrow.

The new iPad looks identical to the iPad 2, but boasts a high resolution "retina" display, has an upgraded 5-megapixel camera and is powered by a dual-core A5X processor with quad-core GPU. It also has 4G capability, but this isn't compatible in Australia as it doesn't support the 1800MHz 4G network band used by Telstra.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
