Summary of Reported Features on the iPad 3 of Apple

iPad 3 

Reports about the upcoming iPad 3 of Apple have increased recently and it appears that the trend will continue until after the device is finally released into the market. Most of the reports have focused on the possible features of the device while some have raised some questions if the device will actually be called the iPad 3.

Reports have hinted at the possibility that the iPad 3 may feature 4G LTE connectivity. With the number of devices that have been released into the market featuring 4G LTE support, this may be one of the features that the iPad 3 may come with when it enters the market.

Another report has pointed at a seven-inch or an eight-inch display screen for the iPad 3. This report came after the successful run of the Amazon Kindle Fire, which has is only second to the iPad in terms of sale in the market. The smaller screen size of the Amazon tablet allowed it to create a new niche in the tablet market although its low price tag had something to do with its successful sales run, which brings in another report that revealed that the upcoming iPad 3 may feature a low price to go up against the Amazon Kindle Fire

The possible retina display on the iPad 3 has become the focus of a number of reports about the tablet. This has kept a number of observers busy trying to find as much information as they can about this supposed feature on the upcoming iPad 3.

Other reports have also hinted at an eight-megapixel camera for the iPad 3. With the less-than-impressive camera unit on the iPad 2, industry watchers have hinted that the camera will be among the features that will be upgraded once the iPad 3 enters the market.

The success of Siri on the iPhone 4S has also given rise to speculations that the iPad 3 will feature this virtual voice assistant feature. However it should be noted that the network of Apple and the processor of the device will determine whether or not the tablet will come with this useful feature.

A multi-core processor is one of the features that reports have speculated that the iPad 3 will come with. With a multi-core processor, the next generation iPad will be able to provide support for an enhanced camera and Siri. Some reports have hinted at a dual-core processor even as others have suggested a quad-core processor.

Lastly among the reports have attracted the attention of industry watchers is the possibility that the device may not be called iPad 3 at all. Following the release of the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4S, some industry watchers have speculated on the possibility that the upcoming tablet offering of Apple may be called the iPad 2S. This may be possible if the features that will come with the next version of the iPad will only be a slight improvement from the present version.

These are just some of the features that the iPad 3 will reportedly come with once it enters the market this year although the release date itself has become the subject of speculations. Whether it will be released within the first quarter or near the middle of the year remains to be seen and only time and Apple will tell when the iPad 3 will finally see the light of day.
