The swipe up gesture is omnipotent

HD calls only, which looks pretty bad on the Retina display. Can iPad's front-facing camera handle them beside/beyond 720ps?

LTE or CDMA?, actually you need a contract with a carrier that provide the respective band. No matter how your network of preference matters, you will have to stick with some alien network for the sake of ipad
