Apple iPad3 Announcement on Wednesday?

Apple iPad3There are High Expectations for Apple iPad3 Release.

The largest technology company in the world is expected to announce the Apple iPad3 on Wednesday and with this comes a lot of questions. Much to everyone’s delight, the cost of the highly anticipated digital apparatus is rumoured to be staying within the current pricing structure of all Apple iPad3 models.

Invitations were sent out last month from Apple inviting media members to the Wednesday event located at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. This is the same place that the iPad and the iPad2 were launched. Of course the invitation did not reveal exactly what the product was, only “We have something you really have to see. And touch” was written beside the image of a hand touching an iPad calendar app icon.

Some of the reported updates the Apple iPad3 is rumoured to have are as follows. Long Term Evolution (LTE) which would allow users to surf the Internet and download or open apps at much higher speeds. It will most likely be 4G-compatible and able to run on high-speed networks from AT&T, Verizon or Sprint. LTE will improve current features such as video calls, so the camera quality on Apple iPad3 is expected to be better as well.

It is suggested a new processor, the A5X will be found in the apparatus. A dual-core processor will definitely be present, however, some believe even a quad-core processor may be introduced.

The new Apple iPad3’s screen is expected to have Retina Display and a QXGA 1,536 x 2,048 pixel HD display. While more users are using Netflix and other video related services, the product may have a better speaker system as well.

Current prices for an iPad2 on Apple’s website for Wi-Fi-only devices are 16GB – $499, 32GB – $599 and 64GB – $699. 3G service product prices are slightly higher at $629, $729 and $829. Last year when the iPad2 went on sale, the price for the iPad dropped about $100, so the same is expected for the iPad2 upon the release of Apple iPad3.

So, the question now is when can I get one? In 2010 when the iPad was first introduced, it saw store shelves just after 2 months later. Upon the introduction of the iPad2 in 2011, the device was for sale the next week. So, if Wednesday is the birth of the Apple iPad3 you’d better start saving those dollars!

  1. After ipad3, when will ipad4 come out … :-)

  2. With the long awaited release of the iPad 3 will come trying times for other tablet manufacturers. It is estimated that 50% of all current users of Amazon’s Kindle Fire will purchase an iPad 3. Analyst estimate that 55 million iPads will be purchased this year. Apple definitely has the upper hand on the mobile market and although some companies are good rivals it boils down to price and features, like with the Amazon Kindle Fire. People are still willing to pay top dollar for iPad merchandise due to the superior design and advanced technology the surpasses other tablets on the market. It will be interesting to see what happens to the speculation of Amazon releasing a high-end tablet to compete with the iPad 3, the Kindle Fire 2, sometime this summer.

    I currently have the original iPad and decided the ipad2 wasn’t a big enough leap in technology to justify trading up at the time. My iPad is now having issues so this might be the time, but unless the ipad3 wows me with its hardware and usability i will save the 100 bucks and buy the 2, the iphone4S was a major disappointing announcement, hopefully this won’t be more of the same or the apple stock hype will be coming to an end.
