Are You Tempted To Upgrade To The iPad 3?

Apple have, once again, managed to create a frenzy around their latest tablet device – the iPad 3. Smart manufacturers will always remind people who own electronic devices that they’re using the old version by assigning a number to it – Microsoft famously started this trend with Windows 95. After all if the iPad 3 was called “The Excelsior” you might not feel as motivated to upgrade but the fact that you’re currently using an iPad 2 and you know, and have seen, that the iPad 3 is available leaves you in zombie mode with one single thought in your head “…upgrade to iPad 3…” It’s like an episode of The Walking Dead but all the “walkers” want an iPad instead of wanting to eat your brains.

But you’ve only just bought the iPad 2 so how are you going to get the cash together to upgrade to iPad 3? The quickest way to solve your dilemma is to just head over to and use their online valuation form to find out how much your iPad 2 is worth to them. You could sell your old iPad (see it’s already old in your mind) to a buddy but then what do you do if anything goes wrong with it and it causes tension between you and a friend? No, it makes far more sense to just use to generate the quick cash you need to get that shiny new iPad 3 that you’ve, quite literally, been dreaming about.

The neat thing is that an upgrade to an iPad 3 with is a painless process. You complete a mailing form, they send you a postpaid mailing package to send your iPad back to them in and then a few days later you get a check in the post or cash straight into your Paypal account. Then it’s only a matter of you choosing where you’re going to buy your iPad 3 and bug your buddies with it by showing them what they don’t have themselves….a swanky new iPad.

I don’t have iPad 2 even! The price is too high for Asians……

Not a bit! I have the iPad2 and I’m very happy with it. Not much of a difference to me between the iPad2 and the iPad3. A big no! 🙂

Of course i am! Everything Apple develops is a new milestone for me. iPad3 is an awesome device and it is also very modern.

I am so happy with my iPad 2 and people upgrade only for being an Apple fan as the iPad 3 has hardware upgrades that many dont need. We should wait and experience the iPad 2 totally before trying out a device that is needed in future.

3G or 4G, i hate this Internet Service providers totally for not giving a proper unlimited plan to experience it fully.

iPad 3 has two selling points, its retina display and 4G support. If someone doesn’t require these two new things then iPad 2 is the best choice.

I guess everyone wants the latest iPad and the seeling point must be the Retina Display. Still, I could settle for the iPad 2 even but I don’t have much use for a tablet right now.

The new iPad is undoubtedly one of the best tablet available in the market. I was expecting it to be a quad core devices but it has dual core processor. Current iPad 2 owners can skip iPad 3 and wait for newer generation.

Hello! I am a happy owner of Ipad 2.
I mainly use it for the ibooks app.
I read pdfs both technical books and some literature.
Why on earth should I buy the new ipad if ipad 2 satisfies my needs to a great extend?
Just to be trendy? No thank you!
I also currently use an iphone 3GS and have changed its battery by myself, twice…
You get the point.

I just recently bought my iPad2 and there again, they just released the iPad3. Does hellototem accept international shipping? I’m from Asia and I am thinking about a trade for my iPad2. I just love the Retina Display of iPad3 and I badly need it because I have eye problem, and iPad2 is a pain in the eye.

HelloTotem is good source for selling iPhone only from home. I haven’t heard for it before but glad to hear about it from this post.
