The Apple event just ended and I thought that the new iPad will have a name! I was expecting the name till the end and it didn’t come! It was confusing because there already is an iPad (the first one) and there is an iPad 2 that is older than iPad(the new one). So we can call it “The New iPad” !
Why Apple would prefer to renounce the HD or 3 designation for the new iPad?
- In the good Apple tradition on the computer market I think that they do not want to introduce to many names for their products but rather keep innovating where maters. We can take a look at some examples at the Apple laptop products: MacBook, MacBook Air and that’s it (MacBook White is no longer on the market).
- Apple is the dominant player in the tablet market and saying that all you need is the new iPad, not HD not 3, just iPad! We all know that Apple has a very effective marketing machine that can change even the dictionary by replacing the term “tablet” with “iPad”. In fact, Apple is saying that “iPad” is the tablet market!
What name can we expect for the iPhone 5? The new iPhone?
Here are the prices for the new iPad and for the iPad 2. I will write more about this later!
The days till people will get to see the third generation iPad are diminishing, increasing at the same time all the tension that revolves round this event. The greatest curiosity that wanders all over the world questions the design of the iPad 3, which of late is rumored to be named iPad HD.
Aatama Studio recently developed an astonishing iPad 3 concept that features edge-to-edge retina display, NFC (Near Field Communication) technology backed by internal magnets and 3D multiplayer hologram.
The iPad 3 as designed by Aatama Studio is really thin, looking almost fragile, but fragile things are also valuable. There’s no doubt that the edge-to-edge screen rends the elegance of this tablet to its maximum, but it might also have some glitches; an accidental touch on one of the edges might interfere with your activity. A multi-touch capability should banish such fears.
Due to the NFC and to the internal magnets one can bring two iPads together, taking the tablet experience to the next level. You can watch movies in HD or play your favorite game. Moreover, the holographic 3D display can increase the gaming area and can throw you more into the game.
Getting back to reality, I wonder if this concept gave Apple some ideas. Judging after the manufacturing rumors, I believe it hadn’t. And I also wonder whether it manages to steady the freeze or on the contrary, it pours more gas on the flames.
Rumors argue that Apple will provide a limited number of the third-generation iPads due to the shortage of the high-resolution Retina Displays. The famous iPad3 is expected to be launched at the Yerba Buena for the Arts in San Francisco. Apple keeps its traditions alive because the last two iPads were introduced in the same place.
The new gadget that would hit the market is said to have twice the resolution of the 1,024-by-768 screen available for the second generation of the iPad, performing with a resolution of 2,048 by 1,536 pixels. Sharp, LG Display and Samsung Electronics are the suppliers for the third generation Retina Displays but it seems that their supply wasn’t enough.
Apple Insider states as following:
“As a result, iPad 2 will remain the mainstream in shipments in the most part of the first quarter before shipments of the iPad 3 start gaining momentum in the second quarter”.
The same source came with the rumor that Apple will unveil an 8GB iPad2 on March 7, the day when iPad3 is expected to be released.
A lot of rumors and curiosities have been wondering around, that maybe the iPad3 will integrate or not a quad-core processor and a 4G LTE connectivity but it only remains to wait until its launch and be enlightened by the features.
