While all eyes were set on CES, a brand that just can’t manage to stray away from the spotlight is Apple, even if they were not part of the event. The latest tidbit comes from a report by Bloomberg, in which unnamed sources have informed them that the third iteration of the popular slate will go on sale in March. Keeping in line with the countless of rumours surrounding the iPad 3, sources have informed them that this tablet will in fact feature a high resolution display, LTE capabilities and a faster processor.
To HD and beyond!
It was believed that Apple is set to launch a tablet with a faster processor, most likely running on the A6 chipset. The report states that unnamed sources have informed them that the upcoming tablet will use a quad-core chip as opposed to a dual-core chip found on the present generation iPad 2, thus allowing people to quickly toggle between different apps without any lag.
The unnamed sources have detailed that Apple plans to bring LTE capabilities to the iPad 3 as it is believed to feature a larger battery that will be more capable of supporting this newer technology. As for the display, sources have said, “The new display is capable of greater resolution than the current iPad, with more pixels on its screen than some high- definition televisions. The pixels are small enough to make the images look like printed material, according to the person. Videos begin playing almost instantly because of the additional graphics processing.” When contacted by Bloomberg regarding these rumours, Apple declined to comment.
As of now we are most likely seeing a March launch date as the rumours are coming thick and fast. Stay tuned for more rumours and speculations about Apple’s upcoming iPad 3.
