Ipad 3 Expected First Week Of March
Posted 10 February 2012 - 09:53 AM
Apple's OS have all been backward compatible with previous iphones/ipads, so we can rule out a software update. I think we are assuming it will be an Ipad 3 and not a iPad 2HD. The only reasonably reliable information so far is that the screen will be higher resolution. Most blogs think the new iPad will have the same processor. I don't think they will go with a new major version number unless they had a new processor, different case design, larger battery size and higher resolution screen.

"Rumor" articles about CRAPple overpriced toys are a waste of everyone's time and belong on Mac World. I would be happier if this stuff was kept out on my PC World email newsletters. As I have NEVER signed up for any crapple related news. Or make a new newsletter just for you fanboys.

1. Resolution likely to be 2048 x 1536. Rumor claims its an IPS display. However the PPI over that size puts it below "Retina Display".
2 - The display is rumored to be made by Sharp and will make the new iPad slightly thicker because the display is thicker vs the last.
3 - Very likely not to be Quadcore
4 - Very likely to have a larger battery to deal with a power consumption of the new display.
The OS will likely be iOS 5.2 to handle new features like 4G/LTE and likely a 5MP - 8MP camera.
Likely will support 1080P recording/playback...
Either way I am glad they are making a new one, so the retail on the iPad 2 will drop. Wifey wants one.
