So it was the iPad 3 / iPad HD / “the new iPad” launch yesterday… what, you weren’t in San Francisco? Well, the 755 seats at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts were all filled with journalists. Fortunately for you, they had cameras.
The press has been speculating about the device for months — everything from the name to the display and the release date has been rumoured and then passionately debated. Yesterday was the day, and the journalists wasted no time photographing every detail — and when they got to play with a real life iPad, they yfroged and instagrammed it to pieces. Here’s what you would have probably tweeted if you were lucky enough to be blessed with an invite.
