New Apple iPad 3 - Release Date Rumors

clock January 17, 2012 12:00 by author Ty

Although there was no Apple iPad 3 at CES on display, there has been a rumor going around that the Apple iPad 3 might be launched in a few months, March of 2012. The new iPad 3 also might be very similar to the iPad 2, but with improved hardware overall. Apple already knows the next iPad 3 is going to be a success, just like it’s iPad and iPad 2 predecessors. It’s no surprise that there won’t be any sneak peeks before it is released.
Below are some rumored Apple iPad 3 specs:

•    An improved Apple A5 dual-core 1GHz processor or a possible A6 quad-core processor.
•    Retina Display, 9.7-inch QXGA 2048 x 1536p resolution HD display.
•    Super-sharp display with 326 ppi (pixels per inch) or greater. iPad 2 is 132 ppi.
•    4G LTE radio for faster internet speeds.
•    Larger 14,000mAh battery for the iPad 3. The iPad 2 battery is rated at 6930 mAh.
•    10 hours of video watching over Wi-Fi.
•    Improved HD Facetime front camera and 8 megapixel or higher rear camera, like the iPhone 4S.
•    Storage options could range from 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, and a possible 128 GB with iCloud services.
•    Thicker casing.
•    Stronger glass comparable to Gorilla Glass 2.
•    AT&T and Verizon carriers.
•    Addition of Siri.

Although these are just rumores on iPad 3 specifications. We can expect an iPad 3 arrival sometime in March 2012, and a possible iPhone 5 in the pipeline. The iPad 3 specs sound good and we will all wait impatiently for the next release.

Apple stays on trail with iPhone 4S, not iPhone 5

clock October 5, 2011 00:24 by author Jeremy

The biggest news to emerge from today's Apple event is, of course, the unveiling of their latest iPhone, dubbed the iPhone 4S. This will come with quite a few new specs, particularly iOS 5. The iPhone 4S itself can be pre-ordered starting Oct 7th and will be available Oct. 14th. Meanwhile, iOS 5 will be released on Oct. 12th. So let's take a look at what we're dealing with, shall we?

The iPhone 4S will have the same retina display and back glass-casing as the iPhone 4, but comes with the brand new A5 chip. This chip is said to be twice as fast as its predecessor and has dual-core graphics. A new battery will provide 8 hours of talk-time, 6 hours of browsing (or 9 if done through WiFi), 10 hours of video and 40 hours of music, all done via the supposed 14.4 Mbps download speeds. And with AirPlay Mirroring, you can view some of these things on a bigger screen, either through a wired or wireless connection.

A new 8 megapixel camera is provided as well, bringing 60% better performance over the iPhone 4; this camera will also take in 73% more light, has 26% better white balance and an IR filter for more accurate colors. Plus, it's faster: a mere 1.1 seconds required to take one picture and only 0.5 seconds to take a second picture.

Perhaps the biggest new feature of the iPhone 4S/iOS 5 is Siri - originally a company that handled a voice recognition app, but was bought out by Apply in early 2010. Finally, Siri is bringing their expertise to the table by becoming Apple's (very intuitive) voice program. Quite a few examples were done at Apple's event today, with various questions/demands being asked: "What time is it in Paris", "Do I need to wear a raincoat today", "Find me a great Greek restaurant in Palo Alto", "Wake me up tomorrow at 6 AM", "Search Wikipedia for...". With each command, Siri either responded in kind or brought up the specific app that would help (such as a web browser with a wiki-page open).

Of course, the iPhone 4S and iOS 5 weren't the only news (granted, they were what everyone was waiting for) - the iPod Nano and iPod Touch both got a few touch-ups and price-alterations today. The iPod Nano, which now has a multi-touch display for app-swiping and 16 new clocks (including a Mickey Mouse clock!), will be available for $129 (8GB) or $149 (16 GB). Meanwhile, the iPod Touch, which now has iMessaging - bringing texts from your Apple devices to your iPod - will be for sale at $199 for 8GB, $299 for 32GB, or $399 for 64GB.

Also fresh off the Cupertino-grill is iTunes Match, the long-awaited music service that works with iTunes. This feature will scan your library, find the corresponding songs in iTunes for you and gives you the same benefits that iTunes-purchased-music would. This will be live at the end of the month.

Definitely an exciting day for Apple loyalists, and an exciting day for Sprint customers too - it was officially announced today at the event that Sprint will be getting the iPhone as well.

Oh, and as if all the news above wasn't enough, here's a last piece of joy for you: the iPhone 4S will now be available in white as well.

Microsoft Windows 8 at Build Developer Conference

clock September 14, 2011 00:49 by author Jeremy

Windows-fans out there got a taste of Christmas early this year: Microsoft previewed their latest rendition of Windows 8 earlier today during the BUILD Developer Conference.

One of the alluring facts about Windows 8 is that it'll be available and fully-functional on tablets, but that much was already known. Today did confirm a rumor, though - ARM-based processors will be compatible with Windows 8. This is bound to open up a slew of possibilities for Microsoft within the tablet market, which may just give it a fighting edge needed in the battle against an iPad-held market.

The interface on the tablet-version of Windows 8 is quite simple: it'll utilize what Microsoft calls the "Metro-style" interface, which is similar to Windows Phone 7. A series of tiles make up the screen, which can be swiped, tapped and pinched to change in size, depending on your preferences. The best part of this, though, is that the Metro-UI is not limited to touch-screen tablets, so expect to see these colorful, adjustable tiles on your PC's too.

On the actual developer side of things, Microsoft showed just how easy creating an app could be. One app only had 58 lines of code in it. This simplicity could help to win over developers for the upcoming OS.

Apple iPad 3 Battery. Thinner, Lighter, More Expensive.

clock September 8, 2011 12:14 by author Ty

Apple iPad 3

Apple’s next generation iPad 3 is to be built with thinner, lighter, longer lasting, and more expensive batteries. Pricing for the batteries from the manufacturers will be 20-30% higher in price than iPad 2 batteries from Simplo Technology Co. and Dynapack International Technology Corp., which are Apple’s contract suppliers for iPad and Macbook batteries. The new battery packs for the iPad 3 will start being manufactured the first quarter of 2012.

The good news? Ipad 3 battery packs will be delivered starting the fourth quarter of 2012, which might project a new iPad 3 by early spring 2013.

Battery Life: iPad 2 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

clock June 17, 2011 01:00 by author Jeremy

A recent article on AllThingsD by Katherine Boehret compared the differences between the iPad 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. While the prices are the same for each ($499 for the 16GB WiFi model, $599 for the 32GB WiFi model), differences include the camera, the physical size, and the app market.

Most importantly, however, was the difference in battery life. Boehret's testing (which included 75% screen brightness, WiFi-enabled, and a video loop) concluded that the iPad 2 would last just slightly over 10 hours, while the Galaxy Tab ran at a measly 5 hours 38 minutes in comparison.

Sure, the Galaxy Tab may be just a bit thinner (and really, who doesn't like sleek?) and have better camera quality; but is it worth half the battery life? Granted, it's doubtful people will be using the battery constantly like Boehret did in her testing, so I'm sure that the battery lasts longer than 5 hours on average. Nonetheless, it's something to consider when purchasing a tablet.
