The worlds favourite tablet gets an update
Apple is set to announce its next-gen iteration of the popular iPad in the first week of March, a new report from AllThingsD reveals.
Sources say Apple is likely to host the launch event for the device in San Francisco, almost exactly year after the company announced its current iPad model. There is no concrete data on when it will be available to buy, but if last years launch of iPad 2 is anything to go by, expect it to be available for purchase two weeks after the launch.
Specifications of the new device are said to be almost entirely what we’ve been led to expect from all the rumours. Experts expect a device similar in form factor to the iPad 2, but powered by a much faster chip (though most probably not a quad-core), with a much improved graphics processing unit, and a wonderful 2048 x 1536 Retina Display resolution to feast your eye on.
Along with the new device, expect a newer version of the OS bringing the necessary iPad 3 exclusive features.
No invites have been sent as yet to the major industry watchers, and Apple has said it wont comment on speculation or rumours.
