Apple's new iPad just landed at the L.A. Times and it is sleek, slender, fast and beautiful -- not much of a surprise, really. AT&T shipped over a 4G LTE version of the third-generation iPad, which also runs on AT&T's HSPA+ network, 3G network, old 2G Edge network and, of course, Wi-Fi. As you can see in the video above, we unboxed the new iPad immediately. The packaging, what's included with the iPad and even the iPad itself are nearly indistinguishable from the iPad 2 -- at least until you turn the new iPad on.

So you have one of the 3 million -plus new iPads sold over the last week. What's not to love about it? We've got a running list: Say what, no Siri? Most people thought that Siri on the new iPad was a gimme. Nope. Instead it has a scaled back version -- dictation. The feature is quite good, but you can't tell your iPad to look anything up or schedule appointments. Matt Peckham of Time's Techland surmised that Siri just wasn't ready for the iPad. Jason D. O'Grady at ZDNet, however, thinks it comes down to making sense of dollars , that Apple may be reserving it for the phone: "If you want Siri, buy an iPhone.

With Apple expected to announce the iPad 3 on Wednesday, we're on rumor patrol here at the Technology Blog. The latest buzz is that Apple will not raise prices for the highly anticipated tablet and will keep its current pricing structure for all iPad 3 models, according to 9to5Mac . “Even better, some countries with currencies doing better than the U.S. dollar should expect to see marginal drops in prices,” the blog said. That's good news for the hordes of shoppers expected to line up for the tablet once it's released and is in line with Apple's usual approach of keeping prices the same even as it updates popular products.
