The iPad 3 (HD)
|Apple’s invite to the iPad 3 launch event.|
Keeping with it’s regular release schedule, Apple is going to release the much awaited iPad 3 or iPad HD on March 7 2012. What is it going to offer? Let’s take a look at the rumor roundup.
The 2048 x 1536 Retina Display.
Everyone is looking forward to this. Comparisons are telling us that the next iPad will pack as many pixels as a 42-inch HDTV, thrashing any competition in the way. Here is a comparison of how the game Food Run would look on the next iPad. Basically, it’s going to be a lot of fun using the next iPad to watch movies, look at pictures and play all those amazing HD games that are going to follow!
Rumors from sources all around the internet point towards two possibilities. A dual core faster A5X processor or a quad core A6. Most of the trustworthy sources are leaning in towards the A5X, reporting that Apple will launch the A6 processor along with the iPhone 5 which is likely to be launched later this year. Though the iPad 2 itself is blazing fast, the iPad 3 might need a bit more processing capability to power the Retina display. Coming to RAM, if we’re going to take the retina display rumors seriously, it would make sense that the RAM would finally see and upgrade in the iPad 3.
