The third generation of iPad i.e. iPad 3 has been launched in more than 90 countries since its introduction on March 16.

It is very surprising that in China, the iPad 2 is still being promoted. The ‘iPad 3’ that is available in China runs on Google Android, features double the storage space of the real iPad 3 and even allows the user to plug in a memory card. The best thing is that it is listed at just US $100. You must be thinking of buying one each for all your family members, but you really should not.

Features of iPad 3

The real iPad 3 comes with Retina display, the new Apple A5X chip with a quad-core GPU, full HD 1080p video recording camera with 5MP, voice dictation, and a battery backup of up to 720 hours in standby mode and in talk time up to 9 hours. There is no card slot available and it comes with 16 GB, 32 Gb, or 64 GB of storage.

To avoid getting into legal trouble, Apple in Australia and in other countries was launched after dropping the branding of the iPad 3 as 4G capable and replacing it with the term ‘Wi-Fi + Cellular’. The change was made after complaints were filed by consumers from Australia and UK claiming that the Wi-Fi + 4G feature of iPad 3 does not work.
