With much less fanfare than accompanied the first model, the iPad 3G made its debut last weekend. Is it better than its less-connected sibling? The MacJury is on the case, with two members chiming in from the high seas, examining the latest device from both expectation and performance standpoints. The panel discusses the results of a real-world New York City travel test, and why 3G adds flexibility in some cases but may not be necessary in others. Which data plan to select, how much video 250 megabytes gets you, the effects of 3G on battery life, and a round of favorite iPad apps are all covered by Jeff Carlson, Pat Fauquet, Mark Fuccio, Jean MacDonald, Tom Negrino and host Chuck Joiner.
