The all new Apple iPad 3 is supposedly going to arrive in three different versions, which would support Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G connectivity. On the 28th of February, 9to5Mac came up with this latest update, saying that the new iPads were going to be called J1, J2 and J2a. The latest news from this source, which cites Intel’s own sources, backs up the information that 9to5Mac had received earlier. The iPad 3 is all set to take the world of technology by storm.
9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman is speculating that the J1 is possible the only model which will support Wi-Fi. The J2 and J2a will most probably be cellular versions, which will offer a GSM-CDMA-LTE combination, all of which can connect to 3G and 4G networks across the globe. The codenames J1 and J2 are being linked to reports relating to the Retina Display, according to 9to5Mac. This is an indication that the iPad 3 touchscreen will come with a higher resolution than previous models.
As the case has been till now, the new model will be available in 16 GB, 32 GB as well as 64 GB storage capacities. 9to5Mac considers the maximum storage to upgrade to 128 GB a possibility, since the memory capacity of the iPhone 4S was increased to 64 GB. But a 128 GB iPad coupled with 4G LTE seems like a costly proposition, which would reduce the number of purchases. It would be quite a disappointment for people all over the world, who are eagerly awaiting the release of the latest iPad.
The invites for an event to be held on March 7, were sent by Apple on the 28th of February. This is expected to be the company’s launch of the next iPad. iPad 3 shipments were claimed to have left China on Sunday. The shipments are travelling to the Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City international airports. Putting together all the information that they have received, 9to5Mac is of the opinion that Apple will start taking pre-orders on March 7, or probably some days later. The iPad 3 will officially be released in stores 1-2 weeks after its launch.
