    I have Snapseed and Photoforge on mine. It's surprisingly useful :)

    It appears one still needs the camera connector kit?

    I am really tempted as my laptop is getting old. This would make a great replacement but it's a shame there's still no SD car slot!!! From what i have seen it still looks an impressive but of kit. They will still be selling the iPad2 at a reduced price but by the looks of things i would still go for the 3!!!

    The new photography apps (or are they aps?) are so good and getting better all the time. I believe Karen/Briar processes all of her photos on her iPad... I've used the Snapseed for Mac on my MacBook Pro but I think the tactile version on the iPad must be much more satisfying... I'm afraid that I am going to bit the bullet on this new version for my first iPad. Next step is figuring out how large I need to go.

    I like the idea of the better display, my iPhone is awesome! I think the old Apple is dearer is just a no deal now.

    I think I might recycle something and get one again, love doing photo editing on the iPad as the apps are just so cool!

    And the new iPhoto for it looks amazing!

    That 2048x1536 display is beyond impressive. The thing is, I wonder how a, let's say, 1024x768 image will look on that thing, will it be tiny? I mean, I have an old 19-inch screen with 1440x900 resolution and this iPad has more than twice as many pixels in like a third of the space. I'm really curious.

    That's a lot of pixels in a little screen. I'm already complaining about the latest iMac 27's screen. At full resolution on that 27" screen, a photo with its long edge of 1024 pixels looks tiny on the 27" screen.

    As I feared, still no SD card slot on the iPad. Bummer.

    Let's see if I can hold out for one more generation ... must hold out ....

    I'm so glad it's a relatively minor upgrade (current screen is good enough for me). It's also slightly larger and heavier. I would shave bought a 7 or 8 inch version instantly. That means more money toward the OMD and eventually the 75 1.8. Sounds like a good buy for new users though.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    There's nothing in this iPad to make me want to upgrade from the iPad 2. But I'm actually pretty happy that iPhoto is coming to the iPad. I don't use iPhoto on the Mac, but it should beat the pants off of the iPad's native photo program as a photo management tool. Uploading from a camera into the base iPad photo app doesn't leave you many organizational options. Hopefully the iPad will. This could be really useful to me next month. Not as an editor, but as an organizer before I can move everything over to Aperture on the Mac.

    Coolest thing for me about this announcement was the price drop to $399 on the iPad2.

    Bought iPhoto for the iPad, and it doesn't do much of anything you can't do with the underlying photo app in terms of photo-management. It's mostly an editor. It has some options for displaying images, but in terms of sorting and deleting photos and stuff, it doesn't really add anything.

    Yeah, but it's only for photos and one more thing to carry.

    Interesting Ray...I wonder but it seems that iPhoto on the newer iPad may work differently? I just read this piece by David Pogue: The New iPad: It's in the Apps - NYTimes.com
    This is not a review by him, just his first reactions.
