Apple iPad - which one to purchase?

After a long wait I have finally decided to purchase one.  My purpose is read stuff, like pdf content conveniently in a small environment, of course to take snaps shots, play music and read foreign languages like Sanskrit, where I keep forgetting the mantras.  My original choice was the Rectiva because of the impressive screen display, its sharpness, etc,  as I have poor eye sight, thus would need to read the print enlarged to about 14 to 16 point.  But the market has so much evolved that there are no so many models with all sorts of gadgets and features that it is challenge to make the right choice.  I saw a comparative of the different apple models at http://www.phonearena.com/phones/compare/Apple-iPad-3,Apple-iPad-2/phones/5715,5255, but again I am at a loss of what to go for.  I would prefer to buy American to keep Americans employed or at least to make them rich.  Can the experts suggest some comparative studies or suggestions on which one to go for.  Thank u.

For real??

Not that the question isn't legit but ask it to 100 technicians and get 100 different asnwers. The first thing you have to look at is what OS you would like to have, Apple Android or Windows.. None is better than the other one it's just what suits your needs.

After the OS choice you should check and see what brand you would like to have. IOS is easy, it will be apple offcourse. The other two OS'ses got some more options.

Then you would need to look at budget. How much are you willing to spend? Do you need to have 7,8 or 10 inch. And last but not least do you want to have 3g connection on the device? This makes it more expensive.

Btw, if you allready have quite poor sight, don't try to read on your tablet (screen glance) but go for an e-reader, this is a much better read and you can also just read pdf documents on it also..
