Consumers Eagerly Await iPad 3’s High Definition Screen and LTE
The new Apple iPad 3 is expected to debut in March 2012. The device will feature a high definition screen and a faster processor. The quad core chip will allow quick navigation between two applications. Experts speculate the name of the new chip will be A6. The iPad 3 will even work with next generation wireless networks which will accelerate the searching process and speeds.
By February, the iPad 3 is expected to be in full volume production. Factories in China will be producing iPad 3 devices 24 hours per day to help Apple prepare for the new release. The iPad that debuted in 2010 was the company’s second biggest seller. To date, the iPad has generated $25.3 billion in sales and has sold more than 40 million iPads. No other device comes close to the sales of the iPad. The introduction of the Kindle fire is the closest rival with four million in sales.
To keep up with competition, Apple plans to reduce the price of the iPad 3 as low as $299. The iPad currently retails for $499. The Kindle Fire, its competition, starts at $199. Many consumers are eagerly anticipating the release of the iPad 3 with its reduced price.
Long Term Evolution (LTE) and iPad 3
Since the iPad 3 is compatible with LTE, the user will be obtaining faster access to their data through AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Both of these carriers feature the new 4G LTE network. LTE offers the fastest speeds available for wireless. The tablet’s new battery will allow for longer surfing times. Users may charge the battery once and enjoy hours of surfing time before the battery life dissipates.
Many experts debated about Apple’s choice to introduce 4G technology to the iPad 3 before the iPhone. The battery life of the iPad was the major deciding factor for this choice. The iPad 3 battery life increase will withstand the draining battery issues. Apple’s iPhone does not have the battery capacity to withstand the drain on the battery from the 4G network. That means iPhone users will have to wait a little longer to enjoy the 4G network on their smartphones.
High Definition Screen
The new display is capable of delivering high resolution images with significantly more pixels than some high definition television. Many of the images are so realistic and of high quality that they resemble printed material. The new processor enables graphic intensive applications to play instantly.
Rumors have been circling the community that would double the resolution of the screen to 2048 x 1536, which is reportedly better than a 1920 x 1280 1080 HDTV. The screens will be in-line with the Retina Display which has a dot pitch of 330 dpi.
A PowerVR graphics system is expected to be included in the new iPad 3 design. This new feature will handle any graphic intensive games and keep the iPad 3 performing better than its rivals. As long as iPad remains as the front runner, the company will continue to increase their revenue.
Consumers have much to look for with the new iPad 3. The reduced price will make it even more attractive. The device will improve productivity in the office or home with increased mobility. Even small children will benefit from its use. Consider the new iPad 3 for the upcoming year.
