Yes,it’s just simply called as ‘the new iPad’,not ‘iPad 3′ or ‘iPad HD’.There are some great improvements,but some Apple fans may feel disappointed as the changes are not so significant.
Retina Display will be one of the greatest improvements.As an iPad 2 user,I’m never satisfied with the display quality on iPad 2,I think many iPad 2 users think it in the same way.Well,now on the new iPad,four times more pixels means much sharper texts and colorful pictures can be shown on the screen.The experience of watching HD movie or playing HD games on iPad will also raise to another level.
Samsung recently releases a TV commercial for the latest pioneer product:Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1-a powerful touch screen device with NVIDIA TEGRA 2 dual-core 1GHz processor,2MP front camera,3MP autofocus back camera with LED flash and multiple sensors with sharp 10.1 inch WXGA TFT LCD display.
It’s working with Android 3.1-the upgraded version of Gingerbread which provides more features and customize functions compared to the former 3.0 version and has been tuned to work better than ever.In this commercial,Samsung seems to make lots of comparisons with Apple iPad 2,such as support of Adobe Flash.Let’s watch it!
Do you think Apple will shoot it back to Samsung or perhaps Android?I think the answer will be quite affirmative.Time will prove it.
In conjunction with celebrating 10 years opening of Apple store in US,all Apple retail stores there have made some upgrades.The most changes could catch our eyes are iPad 2 locating everywhere next to each product showing pricing and information.
In Malaysia,iPad2 is so hot that the stocks always sells out in hours;but in US,they put iPad2 as a display and guild tool.You can use it to see the brief introduction,price and tech specs.If you have anything ask,you could just simply ‘call’ the representative through iPad2 to get help.
Feel envy,huh?Will Apple Store in Malaysia upgrade to 2.0 soon?
Recently all Apple fans have been busily seeking sources to get more information about next iPhone as the past generations of iPhone were released in Q3 which is only few months left.
However,Apple is very good at keeping mouths shut and it seems that we could only guess by ourselves or listen to some rumors.The hottest rumor is quite similar as what I talked weeks ago that the next iPhone is ‘iPhone4s’ which is the minor upgrade version of iPhone 4.
Of course,it should be better than the current one,so a faster processor will be applied-the best guess is using A5 which is also using on current iPad2.Also,Apple will upgrade the camera in order to provide better shooting quality.Previously,I heard that iPhone4s could support 4G connection such as Wimax or LTE.However,I read some articles showing that currently all Wimax/LTE chips are not good at power savings and that definitely will lower the battery hours.So iPhone4s perhaps supports HSPA+ that could reach 42Mbps peak as the result of balancing between battery hour and speed.
AppleInsider has their own analysis about next iPhone,I think some points are the same as what I thought.Well,all will only be approved when the next iPhone is officially introduced.Stay tuned!
Dear Malaysians,if you’re willing to get iPad2 in the first place,you can now go for camping in front of those Apple Authorised stores to queue up the line getting the first batch of iPad2.Yes,anonymous source on the inside said iPad2 will definitely land in Malaysia on this Friday!
The much closer to the date of releasing a new product from Apple,the more rumours come out.
Many sources have leaked out that white iPhone 4 will be soon in the market.The estimated date is April 27,2011.I believe that is great news for people who have waited it for days and nights.Well,at the same time,a few sources even said that the white edition of iPhone will have some improvements on hardware and slight changes on the design and so they’re better to call it iPhone4s,an upgraded version of current iPhone4-the real iPhone5 may be later to come until the end of this year-remember,all said here are rumours only.
thisismynext.com mocked up a nice picture for iPhone5,of course,all are unofficial and drawing based on the information they got from everywhere.
I have to admit that the design is fantastic.I personally like it quite much.So just let us wait and see how similar between this mock-up and the final product.
In addition to iPhone,iPad 2 will land to some more countries in the coming days and an unapproved source said iPad 2 will be officially sold in Malaysia on this Friday.Anybody who is interested in iPad2 can check the related information from Lowyat forum.
