It's new iPad announcement day! And if you follow Cool Mom Tech on Twitter , then you know that we're pretty excited about the big Apple iPad announcement that was just made. And very intrigued by the fact that it's not an iPad 3.
Apple’s event which will be held in a few hours is expected to reveal the next-generation iPad, but what sort of features or upgrades will we be seeing? Well according to a recent speculation, it seems that on the software front, iPhoto is reportedly a pretty good candidate to be making an appearance on the tablet. Some are making the argument that according to the rumors that the iPad 3 will see an upgrade in processor and display, iPhoto making an appearance on the device is the next logical step, especially since the built-in Photos app doesn’t exactly have the same amount of flexibility of finesse compared to iPhoto, not to mention photo editing apps tend to have a bad habit of creating duplicate copies (one original, one edited), ultimately wasting space, a flaw that iPhoto will hopefully address.
iPad 3 , iPad HD or whichever name Apple decides to give it, we will report on it - live- on Wednesday March 7th 2012 at 10am PT! As the image above hints, a new iPad is on the menu and it’s just about certain that it will feature a new high-resolution display. Now the question is: what’s inside?
For weeks now I’ve been talking to developers, Apple sources and friends about whether there might be a major new feature being announced with the iPad 3 tomorrow. The bits and pieces that I’ve managed to uncover are tantalizing and have led me to believe that at least one major new feature that we have not seen on an Apple device before will make an appearance on the new tablet. I’ll be honest up front: I have been unable to nail down exactly what it is. What follows is largely speculation about what would be a majorly surprising leap forward for the iPad.
There's a new iPad in town soon. (Credit: Apple) Apple is widely expected to unveil the iPad 3 later this week, but a gadget blog has gotten its hands on what are purportedly pieces of the new device and assembled them to give us an idea of what the new device might look like. M.I.C. Gadget , a China-based blog, says it has obtained the front glass, rear shell, and cases for Apple's next tablet and shot a video (see below) of the device's near-final exterior. The parts suggest that the iPad 3 will be a little thicker than its predecessor but will feature tapered edges that may make it feel thinner.
Where's the home button? (Credit: Apple/CNET) Eagle-eyed readers have been pointing out a curious omission on the imagery of the iPad-theme invitation Apple released this morning : there's no home button in sight. The simplest explanation here is that it's a photo of (what is presumably) an iPad 2 on its side, something that's not that much of a stretch, given that the iPad has been designed to work the same way, no matter which end is down. Yet it's also curious, given rumors of Apple ditching the home button on the iPad, an option that came to light when the company introduced multitouch gestures to developers in iOS 4.3 and later as a feature for users in iOS 5.
Article Excerpt Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc. will sell a version of the coming iPad that runs on their newest fourth-generation wireless networks, according to people familiar with the matter, as the battle to cash in on big investments in mobile broadband heats up. Apple Inc. appears to be planning to announce the latest version of its tablet computer in the first week of March, according to another person briefed on the matter. Whether other carriers will also sell the device couldn't be learned. Sprint Nextel Corp., T-Mobile USA and Apple declined to comment.
