Apple announces the new iPad HD aka iPad 3 on March 7th along with which an update for iOS 5 is also expected.
Apple, the world’s now most valuable company, will hold a product event on March 7 in San Francisco, where it’s said to be releasing the third generation of its best-selling iPad tablet computer.
“We have something you really have to see. And touch,”
Apple said today in an invitation, which features a picture of an iPad 3 HD screen.
After pioneering the tablet market two years ago, Apple is counting on the new model to beat back competition from newer devices running Google Inc.’s Android software. The company has sold more than 55 million iPads, generating at least $US34.5 billion in revenue. Amazon.’s Kindle Fire, which uses Android, emerged as the iPad’s biggest rival over the holiday shopping season last year.
What to expect from iPad HD / iPad3
The iPad 3 comes with the long-awaited Retina display with an increased resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, a better (8-megapixel) camera, 4G LTE and an A6 or A5X chip. My personal opinion is that Siri will be among the highlighted features of the new iPad HD although there are also rumors that Siri could be made available to all iOS devices capable of running iOS 5.
Although people have an idea of what to expect in the iPad HD (iPad3) already, and there have been rumors floating around for quite some time now, it is always nice to see design concepts from creative developers around the globe. One such design concept has been showcased by Aatma Studio, and many are saying it is one of the best ever seen.
