Getting the new iPad for christmas and part of the package included (optional) extra - camera connection kit.

From the packaging, it is identical to the one I already have for the original iPad. I don't want to have to buy an adaptor to use it, (in addition to which I could have used my old one if it is the same).

Does the connection kit for the latest iPad look different from the original connection kit?

As I understand it, iPads 1,2 and 3 (Stupidly named iPad) all have the same connectors. iPad 3 has retinal display and the 30 pin connector.

iPad3 aka iPad, has the 30 pin connector and retina display - according to Apple

The "new" iPad (iPAD4) does have the new connector but the iPad (iPAD3), both with retina display has the older 30 pin connector. Confusing innit?

Why couldn't they just call them iPad; iPad2; iPad3 etc?
