  • Bold iPad 3 AND iPad 4 Rumor for 2012 Sparks Doubt


    Although it's being reported today in the far east that Apple's next two generations worth of iPads could see the light of day before 2012 is over, many are naturally doubting Apple's willingness to release two refreshes of the same product in one year.

    Nonetheless, on Friday Digitimes reported that current plans reportedly call for the iPad 3 to drop in March. This incarnation of the touchscreen tablet will be defined by its high-resolution Retina Display. The iPad 4, however, will then launch in the fall and be characterized by "killer" new applications.

    "A true battle for market share will arrive in the second half of the year when Apple ships its iPad 4 in October," Digitimes asserts, "about the time when Microsoft releases its Window 8 and Intel unveils its Clover Trail-W platform, the sources commented."

    The "sources" attributed to the claims are cited as knowledgeable Taiwan component makers.

      These rumor sites make these controversy posts just to increase traffic. Anyone that follows Apple knows they will not release two major updates to the same product in one year, they have no problem selling iPads.

      Although I am very interested in seeing a quad core iPad, i highly doubt the A5 will be able to support a retina display at that size

      There is no such thing as "knowledgeable Taiwan component makers". Apple wouldn't give anyone that advanced notice on such decisions, muchless component makers who don't know anything about where their parts are going and what they will be used for.

      Digitimes is Digistupid!

      Considering how all the rumours sites were saying we would be getting a iPhone 5 and all we ended up with was a slightly upgraded 4S, I'm going to take all these iPad rumours with an ocean of salt

      Why would Apple release the iPad 3 after the holiday shopping season and then release iPad 4 six months later just before the next holiday shopping season? Who would buy the iPad 3?

      lmao WTF?? Is that all you could come up with is "my phone is better than your phone"?? LMAO yeah well my dad can beat up your dad and my mom can out dress your mom!

      BTW I see your phone is so unreliable that you even had to go start a "on the go repairs" company just to get by. Sounds like an awesome piece of hardware

      so please explain to me what "slightly" updraded is? You mean the twice as fast processor? or the 2x better camera? maybe its just the 7x better graphic rendering?? not to mention a better antenna, that supports faster data??? yeah your right that is only slightly upgraded, i mean i would have rather them change the design and kept everything the same as the iphone 4, thats what i call upgraded....
