  • More Evidence Apple Could Introduce the iPadHD Not the iPad 3



    Another rumor has surfaced claiming Apple will step away from the numerical naming convention with the next iPad and introduce the iPad HD this Wednesday.

    CNET cites a source who has previously provided “reliable information” about unreleased Apple products. The source claims Apple will not use the much-anticipated “iPad 3” namesake and name the latest release the “iPad HD.”

    VentureBeat published a similar report claiming Apple will veer away from the traditional naming scheme in an effort to emphasize the new high-resolution “Retina Display.” The “iPad HD” rumors compliment the pictures of an “A5X” processor that surfaced last week. The pictures of the non-A6 processor have fueled speculation about Apple introducing an incremental upgrade instead of a true successor.

    Accessory lists leaked from Belkin and Griffin indicate the manufacturers are using the iPad HD name instead of iPad 3 as well. The HD naming convention could be Apple’s intermediate update name for future iPad releases much like the “S” in recent iPhone models like the 3GS and 4S.

    Wednesday’s iPad can’t come soon enough. Then instead of rampant speculation filling the blogosphere, groans of Apple not releasing a true iPad update will fill the blogosphere.

      Its the 3rd generation of iPad but they cant count. They don't know how to go from 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Look at the iPhone. It went from iPhone to iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S then the next one will be iPhone 5. I would believe that will be the 6th iPhone model and where is iPhone 2?
      I know right? SOOOO stupid considering they're worth approx. $497 Billion. Sheeeesh luckily they prove it by numbering the products they make whatever way they want. Certainly costing them so much money.

      well, I don't really care about the name, wither it's iPad3 or iPadHD.
      As long as there's a good upgrade in the hardware and upcoming softwares, I'm happy with whatever they call it.
      I like how you laughed about the misspelling of Apple and then went on to promptly misspell whether. Hahahahahaha. It's just so damn funny.

I'm only replying to you because I'm waiting for my dinner to finish cooking, and your comment was the most recent one...If you aren't smart enough to decode the names and WHY they are named that(if you can't figure out the 4 to 4S thing, for example), you aren't smart enough to be here. Go away.

      Exactly. Apple should hire you as a consultant, because what they're doing isn't working. They clearly have no clue how to run a business.

      LOL...yeah I would like to pinch & zoom all the time cause I'm using such a small screen. I'm a grown ***** man, I use my iPad's everyday, obviously I do graphics...try doing that on an 3.5'' iPhone screen compared to 9.7'' iPad screen. Or if you use any kind of apps 9/10 times it's more natural & intuitive to use an iPad, I'm guessing your one of those people that don't own one...or just don't know how to use it.

      I bet it'll have a physical keyboard too. And it'll be that new one that they recently had a story on here about with the super short keystrokes... And an sd card slot... And a USB port!
      Is anyone ever right about the name? How many names were put there before the original iPads release? Less than 24 hours now, let's just wait patiently and see

      A rose by any other name is still a rose...

      I couldn't care less if it was called "iPad Shitface 10" So long as it has the retina display I'm gonna buy one. Naming doesn't put me off a product the product puts me of the product.

      get a grip its just a name. It not like your gonna be at home and say "Hey let me pick up my iPadHD" or say to your friends "Hey Look at my iPadHD" it will still just be known as the iPad.

      Relax. You don't have enough to worry about.

      Wow, what a generous gift!! Only 2+ years and 2 models outdated!! I'm sure she'll love an old used iPad much more than a better, faster, prettier (graphics) model.

      Why not sell it and get you both the new model?? iPad 1G worth significantly more if SHSH are all saved and can be jailbroken.
