Hey! Katie Linendoll
here for All Access Weekly
, guys. By now, it's safe to assume that Apple's much buzzed, blogged and gossiped-about "Special Event
" tomorrow will be an introduction of the new iPad 3.
Let's take a comprehensive look at what the upgrade is most likely to entail.
First off, it's probably not going to be an intensive re-imagining of the iPad 2. A few improvements and tweaks, but nothing too paradigm-shifting. Closer in scope to the bump-up from the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 4S.
It also doesn't look like we're going to see a 7" form factor iPad Mini. Not yet, at least.
Here are some of the new features we can look forward to:
• RETINA DISPLAY
, which will double the current screen resolution to 2048 x 1536
• A FASTER PROCESSOR
, and most likely a new A6 chip, though it's unclear whether it'll be a dual or quad-core model
• A BETTER CAMERA
, up to 8MP rear-facing
• 4G LTE CAPABILITY
• SIRI INTEGRATION
, which most Apple products will incorporate moving forward
You might've heard mention of another product being unveiled at the event as well, which is spot-on. The verbiage on Apple Invites is always a good indicator of what's coming out, and it's pointing to two new products. There are country-wide retail shortages of Apple TVs, which could be because they're making way for the next generation of that product. There is still a very small chance we could see a glimmer of the much rumored full on Apple television imagined to hit retail around fall - but it's not likely.
Stay tuned for Wednesday's post, which will offer full coverage of the Apple event from location, along with a more detailed review of the iPad 3.
