According to a Japaneese blog, Macotakara, after the recent event of Apple, which was actually about iBooks2 and the new iTunes U, we can expect the next event in weeks, maybe in February, where Apple might announce their next generation tablet, iPad3.
According to the latest rumors Apple will duplicate the capacity of the battery in iPad 3, but we can expect other changes as well. Some rumors say maybe two types of iPad will be available this year. Of course, as usual we can hear a lot of unrealistic rumors about Apple's next generation products. This time it's specially true for iPad 3 news, which are published primarily by DigiTimes. Let's see the most recent speculations about iPad 3.
According to the news of Focus Taiwan, Apple is planning the presentation of iPad 3 on 24th February, the birthday of Steve Jobs.
In Cupertino, Apple would, by all means, like to bring forward the date of iPad 3 presentation from the date of March mentioned in earlier rumors, and also they urge the suppliers of the company.
According to the latest information parts of Apple's next generation tablet are already being delivered to manufacturers, and assembly of iPad 3 might begin in January.
Plenty of conflicting rumors appeared about the next generation iPad tablet during recent weeks. One thing common in the released news is that almost certainly iPad 3 will have a higher resolution display called Retina Display, but it is controversial in the news whether the device will be thicker or thinner.
There is no question that iPad 3, coming early next year, will have a higher resolution display than actual 1024x768 ones. iPad 3 to have Retina Display has been in the air since iPhone has had it. However, it is not so simple, because the current LED light bar in iPad 2 must be modified to reach the appropriate brightness in addition to the increased resoluton in iPad 3, as well.
Apple's third generation tablet is reported by some of source to be coming with only minor innovations.
The Digitimes claims that the next iPad will be released next March, and with it being even thinner, the life of its battery will be longer as well.
CNET reports that Apple's partners still have issues with the mass production of iPad 3 retina display.
According to the latest news the new display could be the largest hardware innovation of the 3rd generation iPad, but the production seems to cause problems based on leaked information by the Asian manufacturing suppliers.
According to the news Google is working on an official Gmail app for devices running iOS.
A lot of people use Gmail to do their e-mail workflow. It is fast, convenient, but something is still missing for iOS users: they can access their mails taking advantage of Push service only doing a trick to set up an Exchange account.
The Macotakara claims, referring to "reliable sources in Asia", that Apple may change the long-time used dock connector first time in the iPad 3. The blog discovered the new connector on the list of TVC-Mall, and they claim that it will still have 30 pins, but it will take up much smaller space.
Guys at 9to5mac's reported the news that it's not completely safe to use SmartCover on iPad 2 running iOS 5. Even if it is password protected, due to a bug you can unlock your device, at best situation you enter the main menu, where you cannot run apps, but you can see all installed and running applications, or even you can remove them. Moreover, you can search for anything in spotlight.
Facebook app did its job very well on iPhone, but for some reason it hasn't been made for iPad till now. The official line was that iPad can be used well from a web browser interface. But it was neither quick nor easy, we scolded Facebook a lot: Why isn't there an app yet? Finally, today, without any prior notice, the application was added to the App Store.
The Myriad's developers were reported by 9to5Mac to be working on enabling Android applications to run on iPad. The goal of Alien Dalvik 2.0 project is that users will be able to run applications coded for Android, on iPad's iOS system.
The development allows the impossible to become possible: you can run Android applications directly from the iPad Home screen, as if they were regular App Store applications.
