Apple recently sent out invitations for tech insiders nationwide to come and experience a new and exciting announcement about the iPad.
Many people think that Apple will be announcing the release of the iPad 3. Some are saying that it will merely be an update to the already popular iPad 2, however one thing is for certain and that is that there will definitely be an update!
Apple has been typically tight-lipped in the run up to its iPad unveiling. Based on rumors and supposed leaks from the supply chain, however, the biggest change is expected to be the iPad's screen. The iPad 3 could feature a Retina display, which Apple defines as a "pixel density is so high your eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels."
The iPhone and iPod Touch have Retina displays, and the iPad is expected to join those two with this upgrade, doubling the resolution and quadrupling the amount of pixels on the iPad from 1024x768 to 2048x1536. (The Apple blog MacRumors claims to have a prototype of an iPad 3 display, which they confirmed was indeed 2048x1536).
The Wall Street Journal also reported that the next iPad is set to be compatible with the faster 4G networks of AT&T and Verizon, which would mark Apple's first 4G device; a quad-core processor, Siri and improved camera are also rumored add-ons. The iPad 3 is also rumored to be receiving a larger battery, which, in addition to the Retina display, could bump up width of the iPad 3 about one or two millimeters.
Only time will tell exactly what Apple has up their sleeves, but we definitely can't wait to find out!
