The Apple iPad is the most widely sold tablet across the world. The most anticipated arrival in the world of technology is the Apple iPad 3, to be released this year. The new iPad will be 20% downsized compared to its predecessor, with a sleek design. The touchscreen will support HD display, the screen resolution being 2048*1536. The battery of the iPad 3 is going to be lighter in order to decrease the overall weight of the iPad. However, the price of the new battery is rumoured to increase by 20-30%, compared to the previous price. The battery life is going to be longer though. The iPad 3 is expected to come with wireless charging, and would also allow wireless data transfer.
Apple aims to spice things up with the A6 quad-core Processor, making the iPad 3 comparable to high-end desktops. The A6 will compete with the best mobile processors in the market. Its 28nm fabrication decreases energy consumption and costs, giving customers a much better product. The iPad 3 is rumoured to usher in the latest iOS 5 with multi-touch gestures. Some enthusiasts however predict the introduction of OS X Lion, as the iPad would run on a quad-core processor.
The Apple iPad 3 should arrive with a much improved Retina Display with a screen resolution of 1048*1536 pixels, yielding smooth graphics and crisp, brilliant colours. It will definitely be equipped with iCloud technology, so that the user can access data without having to store it in the memory of the phone itself. The valuable data is not lost if anything happens to the tablet. The camera will be upgraded, and is supposed to have LED flash for support. It is rumoured to come with a 5MP camera, coupled with 720/1080p video recording at 6 frames per second. Technological improvements by OmniVision would be responsible for a size decrement of 20%. Apple has been putting a lot of effort into making the iPad 3 fingerprint proof. A coating of oleo phobic substances shall reduce fingerprints and oil marks on the touchscreen.
The price and release date for the new Apple iPad 3 are yet to be announced officially. The tablet is being eagerly awaited for by the whole world, desperate to see the surprises that Apple has stored up its sleeve. Expectations are high, and as Apple has proven to live up to its standards before, it will surely continue the tradition with the iPad 3.
