No iPad 3 HD? Oh we'll dont really care I'm just fine with my shit, plus people hate to vid chat, mostly cuz it uses lots of data n that's just $ in the end>>>> So those are two good reasons why I don't care about the HD support cause I'm not really going to be talking to a lot of people on vid chat anyway!
