How does the new iPad stack up against the iPad 2?

Dane Geer, AT Advocate at Kern Independent Living Center in Bakersfield, loves technology and was one of the first people in his area to purchase the new iPad. He already owned an iPad 2, so we asked him to compare the two tablet devices. Here is his review:

The major differences between the iPad2 and the new iPad are that the new iPad has a better camera with five megapixels and a higher resolution screen, dictation capabilities, 4G LTE connectivity, more random access memory, quad core GPU and is slightly heavier than the iPad 2.

As a visually impaired user, I can only see a slight difference between the displays. Using the new iPad, I have noticed quicker responses when opening applications and navigating the iOS device. I feel that unless you really need to have a higher resolution screen and the dictation feature, then iPad 2 owners don't need to purchase the new iPad. Overall, the new iPad is a very solid device and the 4G LTE network capabilities are very nice.
Do you have a new iPad or have you looked into buying one? What are your thoughts on its value over previous iPad versions or other tablets on the market?
