The new iPad

Being an iOS developer, I got an iPad as soon as they became available in the UK. For about three months it had the best screen I'd ever seen - then I got an iPhone 4 and suddenly the iPad pixels became very visible.

About that time I also ran out of space - I could no longer put everything I wanted on the device. This problem has only got worse, as apps (including mine) get bigger.

So that set one of my criteria for upgrading my iPad. Any upgrade had to have either

  • A Retina Display
  • More than 64GB of storage

and ideally both!

Apple's announcement yesterday means I'll be upgrading to that lovely retina display - but the lack of a 128GB storage option is rather disappointing. I guess this time next year I'll be debating the need to upgrade for that extra space.
