    Default Photos Compare iPad 2 and iPad 3 Casing


    *Photos courtesy of MICGadget*


    Photos comparing the iPad 2 and iPad 3 casings have leaked, and they reveal an iPad 3 with a slightly different design.

    has photos of a purported iPad 3. The new iPad appears to have a more gradual taper compared to the iPad 2. The first shot misrepresents the thickness difference between the two devices. The iPad 3 has an increased thickness of around 1-1.5mm compared to the iPad 2.

    Additionally, the iPad 3 camera lens appears to be larger as well. This suggests the new iPad will have an improved camera closer to that of the iPhone 4S, if not the same sensor and lens. The number of leaks of iPad 3 enclosures is uncharacteristic of the company, but with manufacturing ramping up on a reportedly massive scale, and Apple contracting the services of more and more manufacturers the ability for the company to prevent leaks seems to have weakened.

    The iPhone rumors and leaks leading up to the 4S announcement showed a tapered iPhone design and were wrong, but these leaks are of a different quality. Either someone is producing elaborate hoaxes or Apple’s next generation iPad will feature minimal cosmetic changes with an improved display and improved internals.

    Refresh.

    And no way will it be bigger. Very counter intuitive.

    I'm not so sure, thicker in the middle with more taper could mean, thinner feeling in your hands when grasping from the sides, while still being able to hold all its internals.

    Either way, I'm buying it for the retina screen and camera (to replace my original iPad)

    Sorry but you have got to be in a group of very special morons...... How do you think you innovate without being a bit "counter intuitive"? I get tired of reading what all you experts have to say about what apple will and won't do. 3g, no way they would make it out of plastic. 3gs, no way it's going to stay the same. 4, no way apple would have those ugly lines on the side, so "counter intuitive". 4s, no way apple is keeping the same design..... maybe they will have an iPhone 5 AND cheaper i4 at the same time....

    Yeah, how about you leave the prognostication to Phil the Groundhog and the ladies on over at the psychic network because you and many others like you really suck at it.

    I bet that the only thing that has changed from the iPad 2 would be the housing lol.
