Aside from being the first iPad to be released without the late co-founder Steve Jobs, it may also be the first iPad not to be announced in California, as CNBC reported it may be released in New York City.
So, what can we expect from the new iPad 3? Here's a quick list of what's buzzing around the rumormill:
- Retina display at 2048x1536 - double the resolution just like the iPhone 4 in 2010, although possibly at an addition cost of $80
- 4G LTE connectivity, improving on the previous generation's 3G, which could bring data speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s on the go(!)
- 1Ghz quad-core A6 processor
- iOS 5.1 - likely a software update at the same time so all existing iPad/iPhone users will enjoy the release too
Watch this space to see what Apple end up releasing next week… if anything!
