We find out if you can tell the difference between the new and old iPads
We're only on the edge of Summer and already the rumors are heating up around hot new smartphones and tablets coming this Fall.

We've got tech rumors! Like there's ever a lack of tech rumors to report on, right? This week: Did a startup called Lytro just revolutionize photography with something called a Light Field Camera? Why did Nokia launch the sexy new N9 if it's built on a "burning platform?" And what's Sea Ray, anyway? Hulu's for sale, but is anyone buying? Google TV 2.0 is in some developers' hands - are they liking it? And like that kid who won't stop talking during math class (but you miss him when he's absent) iPhone rumors are baaaack!

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=Tt4_av4Q2qY With Apple having released the new iPad, millions of people who bought the iPad 2 are now wondering wether they should upgrade their devices.
As with any other upgrade, the question comes down to whether the difference a person will pay to upgrade to a new iPad is worth the new features they get.
If you're an iPad 2 owner, it all boils down to whether you feel like you need the new display, upgraded camera and other features found in the iPad.
The biggest difference that you'll see between the new iPad and the iPad 2 is the display.
While the iPad 2 packed an impressive-on-its-own screen resolution of 1024x768, the new iPad doubles this to 2048x1536.
Combine this with the fact that the newer iPad features a Retina-quality display, and the new iPad's display blows the iPad 2's out of the water.
Aside from the Retina display, the new iPad also features a 5-megapixel camera capable of 1080p video recording with tons of enhancements and an upgraded dual-core processor with a quad-core GPU.
By comparison, the iPad 2 has a 720p-capable camera and a dual-core processor.
If you own a 3G-capable iPad 2 and live in a market with 4G LTE, then this alone might be enough of a reason to upgrade to the new iPad. '
With speeds up to ten times faster than 3G, 4G on the new iPad means a much faster and more pleasant user experience.
Most of the enhancements are under the hood, though.
If you own an iPad 2 and aesthetics are one of the more important qualities to you, then upgrading might not be worth it.
For the most part, the form factor and size of the new iPad are the same as the iPad 2.
In fact, the new iPad is slightly thicker and heavier than the iPad 2, although it's unlikely that you would notice.
What will ultimately keep a lot of you iPad 2 owners from upgrading is the cost.
The new iPad starts at $499 for the most basic Wi-Fi model.
With the iPad 2's price being slashed to $399, you'll likely get around $300 on eBay or Craigslist for a basic Wi-Fi model of the iPad 2.
That means you'll pay around $200 to upgrade to the new iPad.
It's certainly not the worst deal in the world.
If money is no object, then the new iPad is easily worth upgrading to.
Its Retina Display and improved specs make it a worthy successor to the bestselling tablet of all time.
However, if you're content with your iPad 2's display and don't feel a need for 4G speeds, then your new iPad 2 should have plenty of miles left on it.
