The latest rumors regarding the iPad surface a very close release date, a slimmer, more sophisticated look and higher performances. Stick with us to find out what Apple has planned for the iPad 3.
Until last week, it was believed that the iPad 3 will be released in late January, the same month of the Consumer Electronics Show (which will take place on January 10 – 13) and the MacWorld/iWorld event (set for January 26 – 28). However, DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim told CNET that it is very unlikely that Apple would release the new device this month. Calling the time “a little suspect”, he explained that “when they make them available they want to have as many as possible. And my sense is that they will wait rather than make them immediately available”, Shim added.
It is more likely that the release would occur in February or March. February 24 would be a great day for its release, as it was Steve Job’s birthday. But according to DigiTimes, the event could be pushed to March.
So what to expect from the iPad 3?
Faster processor, for one. Rumors have been circulating that the iPad 3’s new processor will offer the possibility of quicker browsing, playing and using all its apps. Then, a shaper screen, that uses Retina Display (over 300 dpi). Last year in August, the Wall Street Journal was reporting a rumor regarding the resolution of the device. It was believed that it would be double, compared to the first to models. That would mean the iPad 3 would have a 2,048-by-1,536 pixels with 326 dots per inch. It is also expected that it would feature a quad-core A6 processor, 4G LTE and it will be slimmer and lighter.
