So she liked your favourite device?
And reading her iPad 3 review, it includes:

Assuredly it's sharper with somewhat richer colors, but if you head to an Apple store and look at the iPad 2 and new iPad side-by-side, I'll wager you'd have trouble saying which is which at first and even second glance.
Seriously? I find it hard to believe that if you open anything text-based, like a book or web page, on both devices and viewed them side by side that the difference wouldn't be obvious. It certainly is for me, owning both devices.
And a review that includes the phrases "Another year, another Apple tablet and ensuing craze", "Despite Apple's extreme marketing claims", "or an Apple lover who wants to have the latest and greatest from Cupertino." doesn't exactly come across as very unbiased.
We naturally tend to agree with and respect those who hold the same opinions we do.
You can always pick specific phrases (as I have above) to make someone look biased, that doesn't mean that they are.

This is incorrect there are Android tablets with the same build quality and resolution as the iPad 3 (Transformer 700).
Transformer 700: 1920x1200
iPad 3: 2048x1536
That is roughly 36% more pixels on the iPad.
