With this year’s economic crisis Apple Inc. is soon coming out with iPad 3 tablet. If you never heard of iPads you better learn now because iPad might become like the iPhone few years from now. The iPad 3 certainly has some things lined up for its release date that are going to set itself apart from the iPad and iPad 2. Despite rumors floating around constantly that the iPad 3 will release later this year, it doesn’t seem possible, especially with the next iPhone release being delayed.
iPad 3 Release Date
Apple as did not announce the specific date of iPad 3 release but however it did announce that it will be coming out in the late November.
iPad 3 Features
With the recent unveiling of iOS 5, you better believe that the iPad 3 will come preloaded sporting all of its new goodies. This huge overhaul of an operating system (demoed on the iPhone) is also being designed for the iPad 3 and will offer an even greater experience on such a large screen; especially if its retina! To date we have only been offered glimpses into the features that iOS 5 is capable of; making iOS 5 on the iPad 3 something to get excited about.
As far as aesthetics go, what does the iPad 2 have to offer? Slimmer, curvier with some shaved off weight in the process is one of the main points of the iPad 2 aside from its quicker processor. Not exactly what Apple fans were hoping for from the second generation tablet.
While nothing is evidenced yet, Apple will likely be looking to give the fans what they want by making some bigger aesthetic tweaks. Whether carbon fiber makes its way into the iPad 3 or is set for the iPad 4 is still to be seen, but we know they have some design changes up their sleeves. Will the smart bezel rumor and patent come true?
iCloud is going to change the way Apple users access and store their content without the feeling of being trapped. Cloud access is going to be the next big thing amongst tablet and wireless companies; and Apple looks to be going big with their huge facility currently under development to support cloud services.
We also believe that Apple fans will be seeing a big change in the way of connectivity with their iPad 3. Nobody likes data caps, especially since the iPad is a device that is going where its users go, and that isn’t always at home or in a dedicated WiFi hotspot area. Expect to see some new options when it comes to signing up for a data plan from its major carriers, especially with 4G on the horizon; the iPad 3 will be worth the wait.
iPad 3 Graphics
Perhaps the most unbelievable part of the story, however, is that Apple might try to reach a resolution of 2560×1920 in the new device. That resolution would be over 6x the number of pixels of the current iPad, and 2.5x the linear resolution in each dimension. The closest display we’ve heard of is Samsung’s announcement of a 2560×1600 10.1″ LCD display in May. Apple has been rumored to be bringing a “Retina” display to the iPad 3, though there has been little talk of it recently. To further add to the doubts, component manufacturers seem to be expecting the iPad 3 to arrive in 2012 the latest Apple tablet should have a curved-glass back, 5 megapixel camera with full 1080P, and a LED Flash nuzzled close to the lens on the rear facing camera. Moving to the front your dreams have come true with the highly anticipated retina display; sporting a FaceTime HD Camera in the top bezel while getting new antennas and stereo speakers at the base.
iPad 3 Camera
With a lot of complaints about the iPad 2 cameras, you will likely see a big overhaul. Judging by the illustration of these mock-ups it appears the cameras will be doing just that.
There’s no estimate on the weight of this mock-up tablet but it does claim that the iPad 3 will be even thinner at 0.29 inches. While it’s not a completely new redesign it has the feel or immediate impression of an evolution of the iPhone 4.
