  • The most unbelievable rumors said that iPad 3 out in March and iPad 4 in October in 2012

    Posted on January 13th, 2012 David Brooks | 88 comments

    After the iPhone 4S came to market, now people around the world who pay close attention to Apple now come to focus on the next generation of iPad, not only Apple fans, but also competitors of Apple as well. Now, there have been so many rumors and guess work done online about the specifications and release date about the much anticipated Apple tablets, while the thing being most focused is about the tablet screen display. Most rumors and guess work predicated that the iPad 3 would configure a Retina display (2048×1536, double the resolution of the first two iPads), which will absolutely deliver better digital experience for users to watch HD videos on iPad or play HD Blu-ray on iPad for unlimited movie enjoyment. However, do you know that there even were rumors about the iPad 4 in 2012? Well, the Geek writer Will Shanklin has written a post about the next generation of iPad and the generation of iPad after the next iPad. Check freely what he said or rumored bellow:

    Retina iPad 3

    Now that the holidays are over, it’s time for everyone to shift their focus onto the next big thing: the iPad 3. In the last week, we’ve already heard a (probably false) rumor that two new iPads will be launching in January, and another that has an iPad with upgraded cameras launching in March. Now we have yet another report: that a Retina display iPad 3 will launch in March, with an upgraded iPad 4 (or iPad 3 Pro?) launching in October.

    The rumor — to be taken with many grains of salt — says that the iPad 3 will sport a Retina display (2048×1536, double the resolution of the first two iPads) and an extended battery. It also, however, says that other upgrades won’t be as exciting as many are expecting. What does that last part mean? It could mean that it won’t get an A6 processor (harder to believe than the other details), or that the form-factor won’t be much different from that of the iPad 2.

    According to the report, the October iPad will be the one to truly behold. It says that the real battle for market share will take place among 2012′s second iPad, Windows 8 tablets, and Intel’s Clover Trail-W platform. The description of the alleged iPad 4 is vague: it iPad Windows 8 tabmerely says that it will have “much upgraded hardware specifications” and “integrated applications” (Siri, perhaps?).

    Would Apple release two iPads in one year? It’s possible, but keep in mind that the same trade publication that ran this rumor also predicted a second iPad in 2011. That obviously didn’t happen. It sounds more likely in 2012, as there is expected to be tighter competition (from Windows 8, a Google tablet, and perhaps a larger Kindle Fire) than there was in 2011.

    Yes, we’re getting into the season where iPad rumors fly in from all angles, with no indication of what’s plausible and what isn’t. Within the next month or two, it will build to a feverish pitch that will take us all back to last summer; that was when iPhone 5 rumors covered the entire gamut of possibilities. Prepare for exhaustion.

    iPad Camera Connection Kit1. First up is iPad Hut’s 5-in-1 iPad Camera Connection Kit, which allows the iPad to connect with a range of different devices including digital cameras, TVs and monitors.

    The adaptor has five ports including a USB port, SD card port, microSD card port, 3.5mm DC port and mini USB port, as well as AV leads – allowing you to connect your tablet to other hardware or sideload documents and presentations from all those memory cards and USB sticks knocking around in your bag.

    iPad Stand2. The Sir James iPad floor stand by Arktis can turn the iPad into a presentation aid for conferences and meetings.

    For those using the iPad at trade fairs or exhibitions, the stand comes with a nifty barrier that can be used to prevent access to the home key, ensuring attendees using the iPad are only able to use the app intended.

    iPad Wall Mount3. The iPad wall mount by Vogel gives easy access to the tablet device with a click-and-release system that allows the iPad to be easily attached and removed.

    As well as providing a neat place to keep a communal office iPad, when attached to the wall mount, the iPad can be fully rotated, making it a useful focal point for group collaboration.

    Waterproof iPad Case4. iPad Hut’s waterproof iPad case becomes 100 per cent waterproof when sealed, ideal for protecting the iPad from knocked over cups of coffee at heated board meetings – or pints during ‘off-site meetings’.

    Fancy taking your work away with you on holiday? The case also allows the iPad to be used in the water so you can keep on top of your emails in the swimming pool.

    SmarTouch Gloves iPad5. While winter may seem but a distant memory, the recollection of icy fingers forced out of the warm to operate touchscreens still haunts us.

    Thankfully, the Isotoner SmarTouch Gloves pictured above have been designed to use on touchscreens so iPad-induced frostbite should become a thing of the past.

    HP Photosmart Wireless e-All-in-one printer6. The HP Photosmart Wireless e-All-in-One Printer bypasses the need for the iPad to be connected to an office network in order to send documents for print – just email the documents to the printer’s email address and wait for the printouts.

    The printer also features a 6.1cm LCD screen with TouchSmart frame.

    External Hard Drive for iPad7. The least expensive iPad comes with just 16GB of storage so adding an external hard drive might be a good option. The Seagate GoFlex Satellite wireless external hard drive adds 500GB or storage space which Seagate says will hold up to 300 movies. It can stream to as many as three iPads at a time.

    Movile TV Tuner for iPad8. The Elgato Tivizen Mobile TV Tuner allows iPad users to watch TV on the go – handy for those who need to keep in touch with news and other programmes on the move or for making that commute slightly more bearable.

    The tuner picks up Freeview signals and transmits them to the iPad using its own local wi-fi network and doesn’t require internet access to work. It also allows programmes to be paused and recorded.

    USB Car Charger for iPad9. The Macally CARUSB10 2 Port USB Car Charger shown above plugs into a car’s cigarette lighter jack and allows the iPad to be charged en route – useful for when your battery fails on the way to that all-important sales meeting.

  • Apple iPad 2 tops in Tablet Display Technology Shoot-Out with Motorola Xoom and Asus Transformer

    Posted on June 23rd, 2011 David Brooks | 26 comments

    The DisplayMate Technologies Cooperation has just released a new display technology shoot-outs result of three popular tablets: Apple iPad 2, Motorola Xoom and Asus Transformer. Although the second generation of Apple iPad has been considered to be inferior in the pixel density when compared with the Motorola and Asus products, the DisplayMate still place Apple iPad 2 the champion among these three tablets, upon the comparison of various elements including: Screen Reflections, Brightness and Contrast, Colors and Intensities, Viewing Angles, Display Backlight Power Consumption, and Running Time on Battery.

    iPad 2

    To get the detailed information about this test, you can check: Tablet Display Shoot-Out Comparison Table.

    By counting out the champion of these popular tablets, DisplayMate also provides some anticipations and suggestions for the next generation of tablet display, which can also be available via the link above. When mention the iPad 2 and tablet display, it is unavoidable that we would talk about the next generation of Apple iPad, the iPad 3 release date and specs, especially its screen display, which has gained so much attention from users.

    iPad 3

    The latest rumor on iPad 3 would adopt an AMOLED display which would offer improved brightness and reduce reflection and power consumption. Still, other rumors said that the iPad 3 would get a 3D display with 2048*1536 pixels high definition screen resolution, which would boast four times the pixel density of the current model. A rumor that the iPad 3 would get a Retina Display with a release of this year also attracts great attention. The iPad 3 might get a Retina display, but it is hard to believe a release within this year.


    iPad 2 screen display has been considered as a great success among many popular tablets like Motorola Xoom and Asus Transformer. The iPad 3 screen display would at least not disappoint users when compared with other tablets of the next generation.

  • iPad 3 rumors: iPad 3 to be equipped with Apple A6 2 Quad while iPhone 5 still comes with A5

    Posted on June 9th, 2011 David Brooks | 371 comments

    It is reported that the next generation of Apple iPad, the iPad 3, would be equipped with Apple A6, a 2-Quad core produced by Apple, to make iPad 3 more competitive. The senior editor Linley Gwennap of Barron’s reported last Thursday that Apple would introduce its next generation of chips for Apple devices, the A6 2-Quad core, as its competitors like NVIDIA would also release 2-quad cores.

    iPad 3


    2-Quad chip is no doubt a big innovation for the future development of portable devices. It would empower handheld tablet as powerful as desk computers. The recently released 2-Quad chip Kal-El from NVIDIA shows very vivid display effect. Once it is on market, it is predicable that all Google Android OS tablets would adopt this chip, which would make great competitive pressure on Apple.


    But Gwennap also predicts that the A6 chipset might not be suitable for small sized smart mobile phones as it might be a little bit large, upon the existing A5 chipset which is larger than NVIDIA chipsets. Thus the next generation of Apple iPhone, the iPhone 5, may not adopt 2-Quad chipset, still with the A5 dual-core chipset.

    7. Brand new iPod player

    It will be not surprised for Apple to launch new iPod audio players. iPod has played a great role in the success of Apple Stores. And on this special day, it is reasonable for users to think there will be an upgrade of iPod.


    8. New MacBook Air notebook

    The MacBook Air notebook upgraded last year needs to be upgraded now. Currently there have emerged many competitors of this admirable designed gadget, not only in design, but in prices as well. These have made it necessary for Apple to upgrade its MacBook Air notebook.


    9. Sprint version iPhone

    Along with the launch of Verizon iPhone, consumers and business users are all curious on when Sprint iPhone would be released. As the AT&T is just now prepping for purchasing T-Mobile, T-Mobile iPhone may be a soon products if the deal succeeds. The Sprint iPhone will be a big gift for all Sprint users.


    10. More new products

  • Apple Makes a new makeover for the Apple’s Store 10th Anniversary

    Posted on May 19th, 2011 David Brooks | 189 comments

    AppleIt is reported that Apple is planning to celebrate Apple Stores’ 10th Anniversary this month. The first pair of Apple stores opened on a Saturday, May 19, 2001, in Glendale, Calif., and the Tysons Corner mall in McLean, Va. May 19 falls on a Thursday this year, but Apple’s big event could hit on Saturday or Sunday, the anniversary weekend of the initial launch. The reports have said that Apple is working on a major makeover for its retail stores and consumers can expect to see big displays, futuristic architecture and more interactivity.

    According to AppleInsider, employees have been told not to expect May 20 to 22 off, for the 10th Anniversary Big Event. Other big announcements are also expected – stores opening, a possible unveiling of “iCloud“, an online locker for music and other multimedia, and the announcement of an iOS app for the Apple Store 2.0. The latter seems a little strange, basically an app that will describe what’s going on in the store you’re at and can be used to call for a specialist.

    Apple Store

    It is also reported that Apple Store employees would use iPad tablets as interactive display units, rather than iPod Touch used currently. Apple Store employees usually used to use iPod Touch to show consumers Apple’s products. The iPad tablets are very convenient for product demos and interactive communication with users. Also, Apple will release RetailMe employee training program of iPad version.

    Apple Stores

    The stores are also said to be getting big digital displays which may be “huge” in some cases and better sound systems. All of this will be supported with a new store app on iOS devices that may show you where the item you’re interested in seeing is located in a specific store.
