    Default Update: Pictures of iPad 3 Rear Housing Surface



    Apple has yet to announce or even acknowledge the existence of the iPad 3, but today’s leak, if it's real, implies Apple is deep into the production process.

    Pictures of the rear casing of the iPad 3 surfaced today on the repair site RepairLabs. The photos compare the current iPad 2 rear case with what they claim is the new iPad 3 rear casing. The diagram above shows a number of differences labeled A through D including different logic board mounts (A), a wider battery (B), a different camera ( C), and a different LCD (D).

    The space allotted for the logic board has been greatly reduced on the alleged iPad 3 rear case, which is most likely because of larger battery which iPad 3 rumors have suggested, but this could also be in response to the increased power draw of a large Retina display. However, until the LCD is leaked, or we actually see the finished product via Apple’s announcement the iPad 3’s Retina display will remained king of the rumor-mill.

    RepairLabs’ source commented that the new iPad 3 housing did not seem any thicker than iPad 2 back. This would contradict earlier rumors that the iPad 3 would be thicker to compensate for a larger Retina display. Either way the new mounting design implies the LCD has been redesigned in some aspects.

    Expect more leaks in the coming weeks. Until then drool over the empty metal carcass above.


    *Update*

    Well the "more leaks in the coming weeks" actually turned into "more leaks in like a couple hours." Apple.pro is claiming to have pictures of the back of the iPad 3 rear housing and photos of the iPad 3's Smart Cover magnets.






    The picture itself shows an almost identical housing to that of the iPad 2 when viewed from the outside. If the piece is real it is either a prototype or was swiped off the manufacturing floor before Apple's factories could stamp any information on the back. It appears that all signs are pointing to an iPad 3 with very little different design wise, heck it even appears both devices will share the same Smart Cover magnet design, implying old Smart Covers will work with the iPad 3.

    But, if the iPhone 4S sales record is any indication of the iPad 3's performance Apple will break records while beating financial analysts' expectations again.

    By the looks of it there will be nearly no difference in looks from the iPad 2 to iPad 3.
    Thats why other tablets get more of a look as from one to the next its just about a completely different tablet but Apple stick with their boring look and design. I hope the screen is different like it doesn't have a huge black border around it to make it look different but I doubt it as it is an Apple product so it will look like all the other iPads.

    I hate when people complain about the design of the iPad. I would like to someone make a remake of it that doesn't look like any other tablet. iPads look nice and sleek which is a good thing.

    +1. A tablet is a tablet in terms of shape and aesthetics. What exact form factor do people want the iPad to change to exactly? Apple have obviously decided that a 10" 4:3 shape is the best compromise, so that it works well in both landscape and portrait mode for reading. 16:10 Android tablets are better for viewing widescreen movies, but they suck in portrait mode for reading.

    So in short it's the insides that count. Just as its the insides that count for the iPhone 4S. While a large group of people complained that it wasn't a new design or the rumoured 4" iPhone 5, the majority of people that actually bought the 4S are extremely happy withs it's massive boost in speed, Siri, and the big increase in camera/video quality.

    All that I really care about for the iPad3 is an increase of screen resolution. I love my iPad2, but ever since being spoilt by the amazing screen on my iPhone4, every other display I own has looked chunky, soft and pixelated in comparison. Its time for Apple to blow us away with a 2048x1536 retina display on the iPad

    If you had read this portion

    "The diagram above shows a number of differences labeled A through D including different logic board mounts (A), a wider battery (B), a different camera ( C), and a different LCD (D).

    You can see it's talking about the size allocation between the 2 devices. And judging from what I just read, it means that the right side is the iPad 3.

    I'm pretty sure it's worse for movies than 16:10 is for reading. Even the Kindle has 16:10

    Americans need to drop the attitude that companies have to reinvent each product on a yearly cycle just because 'it's last year's model'. The iPad 2 is sleek, comfortable and unobtrusive. When you're using it all that matters from a design point of view is that it's comfortable, you can easily access all of the ports and the screen is clear. The iPad 2 does that better than any other tablet. Design should be worthwhile, not just for design's sake.

    Read this. It's Dietr Rams' 10 principles of good design. he has influenced design more than any other man, without a doubt. The world owes him big time.

    Gee... how do you want a tablet to look? You want it triangle? Maybe with transformable wings that extend out? Unless you're a tablet nazi or own a non-apple tablet, I have no idea what another perticular tablet looks like. Is it a $300 Andriod 2.2 tab or a $800 Xoom tab? How can I know unless I look REALLY close or ask? All other tablets really look alike to me. Well, one thing I did notice was someone holding a 5.5" "thing" next to their ear talking into it. That has to be the Galaxy Note. Though it was more funny to me then it was cool to be using such a big device as a phone.

    What apple has really going for them is people recongnize their products even if you don't own them. That is a fact, good or not.
