Apple’s iPad 3 is getting huge amounts of press lately. The most recent rumors are pinning the tablet for an end of March release while rumors about its design, display, battery and camera keep popping up. The worst of the bunch would be that the iPad 3 would come with a dual-core processor on a market already overflowing with those.
With an iPad 3 event coming on the 7th of March (again, rumored – there’s nothing official), the rumor mill has picked up the pace and the latest information points to the iPad 3 coming with an iPad 2-like design and an 8MP camera.
The iPad 3 camera and design rumors come via NextMedia. The page claims to have an actual photo showing off the iPad 3 and its camera.
The design hasn’t changed, yet the case has. The display is allegedly a Retina type (2048 x 1536) display and the camera has been upped to 8MP. This can mean that there is a possibility of finding the iPhone 4S camera residing inside the iPad 3.
Seeing as the iPhone camera is doing a pretty good job, it should be a nice addition to the Apple made tablet. The rumors concerning the processor however, are still not stopping.
Apple’s iPad 3 is rumored to be coming with an A6 quad-core chip, but we might very well see a dual-core. That would be somewhat of disappointment seeing the competition in the sector.
The quad-core Asus Transformer Prime would have a field day and with more quad-core tablets coming, Apple might lose serious ground. No matter how much you “love” a product, there’s a limit when you start reaching into your pockets for a device which wasn’t that powerful in 2010.
iPad 3 Release Date
Almost everybody expects the iPad 3 release date to be scheduled for mid-to-late March. However, aside from the recent Amazon leak everything is based on “industry / Apple insiders”.
Until the March 7 event (hopefully) arrives, make sure to stay tuned and drop us a line. Will you get the iPad 3 irrespective of changes or will you stay away from it unless you see a quad-core and an 8MP camera?
