Apple is gearing up to release iPad 3 very soon, we have been hearing that it will be released on 24th February or may be during the press event in first week of March. Fingerprint-proof, HD Retina display and faster GPU/CPU will some of the major changes over iPad 2. The design of iPad 3 is not expected to change much. Today, AllthingsD also reported that-
Sources say the company has chosen the first week in March to debut the successor to the iPad 2, and will do so at one of its trademark special events. The event will be held in San Francisco, presumably at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Apple’s preferred location for big announcements like these. No word yet on a street date for the iPad 3 (assuming that’s what it’s called), though my guess is retail availability will follow roughly the same schedule as that of the iPad 2: Available for purchase a week or so after the event.
In addition to what AllThingsD reported, there are sources that predicts iPad 3 will be released on 7th March. It is also said that iPad 3 will have LTE 4G enabled micro-SIM card. Micro-SIM card will give more space to battery and in-turn increasing the battery life. Other specs are-
- Processor : A6 Processor (with quad core features)
- Display : 9.7″ screen with 3D capabilities
- Resolution : 2048 x 1536
- Camera : 8Mp (1080p HD Video with LED Flash)
- Storage : 32GB, 64GB, 128GB
- Microphone : Enhancement in microphone for advance apps like SIRI
- Gorilla Glass : iPad 3 will have Gorilla Glass that makes the overall weight 15-20% less
- Other Features
- Fingerprint-proof Technology
- Retina Display
- HDMI Port
Advancement in the Glass (Gorilla Glass), Retina Display, Fingerprint-proof technology are some of the features that will make it one of the best gadget of 2012. Retina Display makes what you read, see, watch, and play hundreds of pixels better. Fingerprint-proof Technology that makes iPad 3 screen more resistant to oil, smudges and fingerprints, that will definitely gonna give an edge to Apple over other rivals.
Whether iPad 3 get released in February or March, what I will miss Steve Jobs the most during this release. Yes! this time it will be Tim Cooks revealing new Apple iPad. Lets wait and watch.
