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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
