Updated: Apple has started sending out invites for March 7th Apple event which is happening in San Francisco. Though, there is no official confirmation about this event, if it’s going to be an iPad3 event or Apple might release something awesome. This event will take place at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in S.F.
We can expect iPad 3 to hit market before end of March in U.S and April in other countries. If you will notice the above official invitation, you might realize home button in iPad is missing. (Hint?) Anyways, it would not be wise to speculate anything for now, as event is just a week away. We will update you with the latest update on iPad 3 Launch event, meanwhile join us on Facebook.
Even after the launch of iPhone 4S there are many rumors going on about Apple, but this time its not about iPhone, its about an iPad 3. It is supposed to be released in October 2012, which, of course is a major rumor. According to Susquehanna Financial analyst Jeff Fidacaro, the device is headed up for production. Fidacaro says:
Since our last month supply chain checks we are now seeing 600,000 to 1-million iPad 3 builds showing up on the plan for the fourth quarter of calendar 2011. Apple was supposed to produce between 11 million and 13 million iPads during the fourth quarter. Now, that range stands at 12 million to 14 million.
The Apple iPad3 will have a thinner and sleeker design, which will also support full touchscreen HD display with a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536. It will have a lighter battery to reduce the weight of the tablet and is going to be much more costlier then iPad 2’s battery plus it will have longer battery life. The camera is going to be much better than the previous version of tablet, it will feature an LED light and a 5 Megapixel camera with 1080p or 720p video recording quality of up to 60 frames per second.
It is also expected that the iPad 3 will have a wireless charging technology, which will be able to charge the battery and transfer data wirelessly.
Some of the features that are being predicted are :
- A6 Processor
- 3D feature and Retina Display
- Cloud Computing
- Better Camera
- Fingerprint proof screen
Release Date :
There is no official date for the release of iPad 3, but according to rumors, it will release in early 2012 or perhaps March 2012. The iPad was also released on March 2010, hence there could be a possibility that it will come in March of 2012. The main reason of delay of this tablet was the failure of Retina Display, due to some legal issues from the main competitor of Apple, “Samsung”. Now it is being said that all the legal issues are solved and iPad 3 productions has already started in China.
