The display is moderately bright and readable from any angle so long as glare doesn't get in the way, and responds to touch as quickly as any of its Honeycomb peers, though still well behind the likes of Apple's iPad 2.

As far as the battery life of the new iPad is concerned, I can say that the device pretty much lives up to Apple's ambitious claims.

The new iPad is also equipped with a greatly improved camera on its back (a 5 megapixel shooter, not unlike the one featured on the iPhone 4), new 4G LTE options (for both Verizon and AT&T), and a considerably more powerful processor.
