So the rumour mill has been spinning full throttle the past few days, MriOSDevices wants to give you it’s perception of whats to come.
1. So what is most likely to be in the 3rd instalment of the iPad?
As far as we are concerned, the iPad 3 or 2S will have a retina display, this was anticipated in the current version however Apple struggled with battery power and it didn’t come to light.
Also expected that the next-gen iPad will have a larger battery to handle this screen as well as handle the extra processing power.
The new A6 chipset is expected in this version and it will also feature a quad-core processor
2. How much will it cost?
Many rumour and the consistency of apple makes this pretty easy to recommend, Prices for the base model wifi only will be approx £399.00 UK or $499.00 US running all the way to the top model (Wifi & 3G model) costing £659.00 UK & $829.00 US
True to form when the next-gen iPad is announced, Apple should drop the price of the current iPad by £100 / $100 so if you’re looking for a bargain then this might be your option.
Another widely anticipated extra will be a 128GB drive, what would we see this priced at, leave a comment below with your thoughts.
3. What software can we expect
Siri is currently only for the iPhone 4S, Mainly to encourage users to purchase their latest devices, we can honestly see Siri coming to the next iPad as it will attract users without Siri currently on their older devices
It will come with iOS 5 like the current iPad, the next major firmware upgrade will be 5.1 which is currently in Beta.
4. What would we like to see on the next iPad
If apple can give us all of the above then i think this would be a successful update to an already brilliant device, Picture that we will post below show upgraded rear cameras however no sign of an upgraded front facing camera (which is very much-needed) hopefully the rear camera will match, if not super seed the 4s 8mp)
5. Finally – will a tablet give apple any competition in 2012
This is pretty much an easy answer in my opinion, no….. Apple is finally achieving a world-wide boom in profit, sales and recognition. this is something Window’s has held so several years in an already difficult market.
The only competitor that’s realising apple is currently Samsung, and personally. as long as they try to get customers by insulting apples achievements then we doubt they will.
