Any speculation about how different it will be to iPad 2?

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

I was reading about the missing home button and about the 2048x1536 resolution (4 times better than Ipad 2)...

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

Just received this email tip off from a mate. The iPad 2 16GB has now dropped to CHF 379 at MediaMarkt, or CHF 579 for the top of the range 64GB 3G

An excellent first tablet or upgrade for iPad 1 owners.

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

I think I'll wait for the next Generation, I'm pretty happy with my Ipad 2 (so addictive!!) and I don't think the changes will be too dramatic (of course, it's apple )

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

Are they launching on March 7th? I thought it was more an announcement of what is to come in the Ipad3

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

will it have flash? If not, I could probably live with Gen 2 - after all, right now we have a lowly gen 1

It is going to be my big 4-0 birthday present, I believe

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

The rumor mill has it getting a larger screen with better resolution as well as a camera. I still have an iPad 1 so I suppose I'll be looking to upgrade if it looks good.

hmmm, wonder if I need the 3 over the 2 then... (you know, me a struggling stay at home mom and all ) The kids take over the original iPad. I get it once they are asleep! I want it (over the iPad 1) to be able to skype easier than using my ancient netbook.

Just checked the Media Markt website as I got an e-mail from them and the iPad 2 was advertised. I went a lookin'. Can anyone explain why the 3G version is cheaper than the wi-fi only version (579 vs. 649) ?

i guess it is only the 16 GB wifi and the 64 GB wifi+3g included in the action.

anyway i bought one 16 wifi for my wife. Thanks for the tip Castro

So, we're nearly to the third incarnation of Apples wonder device, and I still haven't found a solid justifiable reason to own one.

There is none. And then you have it and wonder how you lived without it . (typed this on my iPad while watching the kiddos play outside!)

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

Would like a smaller bezel or a larger screen, but i havent heard of either being likely.... jus the retina style display, which will be nice enough i suppose. but still a bit of a shame if thats the best or only radical thing about it.

i think apple are more about incremental advances at the moment rather than big innovation.

Will be interesting to see if Tim Cook decides he is enthusiastic enough to actually launch and demo a product himself.... something he has not done yet.... and i guess he will get the party faithful to do it once more. As steve said.... "hes not a product person per se".

Fairly sure we will see a small update to the apple tv, but not an actual apple television. If so, its a certainty to now have 1080p (which, lets face it, should really be here already) and then i guess 1080pm mirroring between the ipad 3 and the apple tv.

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

The rumours are that the iPad 3 will use tech developed by Senseg to give the tactile illusion of touch - ridges, roughness, bevels etc.

Sounds a bit SciFi to me, but you never know...
