Just three and a half month since the iPad 2 release date, many analyzers have started their kinds of speculation. About iPad 3, from the fall iPad 3 releases, A6 processor to same HD Retina Display as iPhone 4, though most are speculation, but we need find the real answer from them. Here I round up much reasonable ones for your reference.
iPad 3 release date:
1. At the time, Taiwanese trade publication Digitimes was reporting that the iPad 2 would have a screen resolution of 2048 by 1536 pixels–four times that of the current 1024-by-768 pixels.
Mainelli, however, believed the 2048-by-1536 pixels prediction was premature: “Our sources say Apple has requested that manufacturers begin work on displays with that resolution for the iPad 3,” said Mainelli, who didn’t predict when Apple’s third-gen tablet might ship.
2. On Feb. Gruber wrote, “I think the iPad fits most naturally into the same schedule as the iPods: where new hardware is announced and ships in September. The iPad was a massive hit during this past holiday season. I don’t think April is a particularly good month for an annual iPad release.”
3. MG Siegler of TechCrunch wrote, “We’ve now heard that this ‘fall surprise’ is related to this would-be iPad 3. We don’t have any more concrete information beyond that. But, as of right now, the plan is apparently to release one iteration of the iPad in the next few weeks. And then blow the doors open with another new version in the fall.”
Reuters reports that the new iPad 3 is due in the fourth quarter of the year.
But apple’s chief executive Steve Jobs noted at today’s event that 2010 was “Year of the iPad,” After detailing iPad 2′s features and price, which Jobs pointed out to still be substantially cheaper than the entry level tablet being offered at $799 and Jobs added, “when you add this together with over 65,000 apps, we think 2011 is going to be the year of iPad 2.”
Additionally, from the prospect of iPod mini which was Apple’s most successful iPod outselling all other models of its time but Apple discontinued it. Just as the competition could say, ‘we have a music player just like the iPod mini,’ Apple canceled it and started over, releasing the iPod nano. It shouldn’t be wise to release iPad 3 this September or this year, we cannot make sure the concert date, but next spring is reasonable.
iPad 3 components
1. Use A6 Processor?
iPad 2 so far use A5 Processor, but the Android quad-core chips tablet PC are already in preparing, if Apple would be taking advantage of their new 28nm process in A6, is roughly two-thirds that of the A5 processor which is made by Samsung. We are confident with that the next A6 Processor surpasses the Android. It is worth expecting and possible.
2. 4G for the iPad 3?
Apple mobile devices further a slow step to support 4G mainly relies in the consideration of Buttery life span. But the life span of iPad 2 is still incredible long, so it possible to support 4G, of course the Verizon and AT&T network. Apple has claimed will do a greater corporation with Verizon.
3. Take retina screen?
IPad 3 does appear to be targeted for a higher 2048×1536 resolution, but that its release would likely be further out rather than being a September release.
Though it’s very possible to take higher resolution, but the retina screen from iPhone 4 costs too much and iPad screen is much bigger than iPhone, so its possibility is low.
4. 7 Inch screen?
In the interim however, Apple is thought to be working on a device that is not an iPad, but rather sized between it and the iPod touch. Other rumors have supported the potential for a new iOS device with a screen between 5 and 7 inches (roughly 12 to 18 cm), but this is unlikely to be a scaled down iPad for the same reasons Jobs criticized iPad competitors trying to release 7 inch tablets last fall.
5.Might include an SD card slot ?
After with iCloud, you can transfer almost all the things, it’s not possible for iPad 3 offer a big Storage than 64 G.
6. Similar price structure?
Reasonable price is one part of the success of iPad, if the beginning price is more than $ 499; it’s not wise for apple to do this.
To get an iPad 3 is an ideal thing, apple act the convention to take we surprise, the iPhone 5 is the latest example. If you are not in an urgent, to wait for the new iPad 3 release is worth rewarding.
