Finally the New iPad is available for purchase, with yours truly receiving his via trundling delivery van earlier this morning. With the rush of a new retina display dissipating, I pulled out my trusty iPhone and began snapping some obligatory unboxing photos that are expected of every new iPad or tablet review.
Because I believe that “unboxing” photos are becoming a bit cliché, I decided to justify my snap-happy fun and compare the new iPad with older models by way of a few side-by-side shots. These side-by-side pictures help show the “evolution of the iPad” from first to latest iteration.
On a related note, the photo of the iPads turned face-down best illustrates the differences in thickness between the three generations of the device.
