3rd-gen iPad to use quad-core CPU, Retina Display, 4G LTE

Written by Jon Worrel

According to Bloomberg


As many financial analysts in the information technology industry know, Apple is the biggest holder of both credible and uncredible rumors regarding any company's product line in the history of personal computing. The amount of rumors that manifest themselves on the edges of the Internet surrounding Apple's plans are undoubtedly some of the most discussed, debated and hated topics that make the Web the world it is today.

Nevertheless, the latest source of Apple rumors comes from Bloomberg, citing "three people familiar with Apple's [iPad 3] plans." According to the information, Apple's third-generation tablet model is expected to feature a quad-core ARM Cortex processor, a Retina Display similar the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, and a 4G LTE radio compatible with both AT&T and Verizon's next-generation wireless networks.

Bloomberg's unnamed sources at Apple claim that the company's manufacturing partners in Asia have started ramping up production of third-generation iPad components in January 2012 and plan to reach full volume production by February 2012. According to other reports, many analysts expected the company to formally announce its third-generation iPad hardware sometime in the first quarter of this year. However, recent news from Apple has put an end to the iPad announcement rumors, as the company will host an education-centered publishing event next week, January 19th, in New York City.

Because of the recent announcement, it is impossible to confirm whether Apple will announce new iPad hardware in the first quarter of 2012, and analysts have already begun restructuring their forecasts according to other rumors that have perpetrated the Web recenty.

We look forward to discovering more credible information regarding third-generation iPad components directly from manufacturers overseas in the near future. In the meantime, the projected hardware information can be taken with a grain of salt.

I don't care if it's iPad 10, Apple will never get my business. It's bad enough people have to carry around a 10" brick that's difficult to handle due to it's large size.

Will this have HDMI out? USB 3.0 out? Will it be 7" or 8" screen size? Flash support? HTML5 support?

Don't forget the floppy disk drive! No parallel port either? And how about Silverlight and ActiveX support?

A well written article with no grammar mistakes. I look forward to reading more from Jon Worrel. It's a breath of fresh air after reading articles from grammar-challenged Fuad.

Might want to read Nick's articles. This apparently is news to him since he is backing the idea that the next iPad is virtually identical to the current one.

Stupid reply is stupid. Unlike those things you mention, his are actually important. HDMI is very useful, especially when your device is able to record HD video. HTML5 is the future of the web, but soooo much of the content on the web is in flash still, so it's stupid to not support it. Let the consumer choose if they want to take that battery life hit, don't make that choice for them.

HTML5 will be for mobile while Flash will be for the PC. If I am not mistaken, I read that Flash tends to suck back battery power, where as HTML5 does not. Also HTML5 is open source I believe. Flash is here to stay regardless.

Even Adobe said themselves they were dropping flash. Frankly, its resource cumbersome and outdated. My bet is Apple will support HTML5 to a greater depth. Safari already supports it anyway to a lesser degree. On the port side, why pay for a licence for HDMI when you can drop in an ultrafast Thunderbolt port which, no doubt, will have an HDMI or USB adaptor appear in due course. Don't expect any other ports like XD either, you know they hate it when people download software onto their bits of kit.

Naturally, Apple's over priced charges will apply!!
