    Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer: “The New iPad Is On Fire”

    If you were one of the naysayers who thought that there wouldn’t be a very strong consumer appetite for the newest twist on the already very popular iPad, it may be time to think again. Apple’s top executives said today that just a few weeks after the new iPad’s formal launch, the response to the company’s latest iteration on the tablet has been incredibly strong… Read More

    The Retina iPad Apps To Test Tonight And Tomorrow

    The new iPad nears. Apparently Walmart will be selling them in just a few short hours, well before Apple itself does tomorrow morning. Meanwhile, the first direct-to-consumer shipments should be hitting anytime now. Long story short, a lot of people are going to be getting the new Retina display iPad over the next several hours. Unsurprisingly, the Retina-ready apps are already flowing in. When… Read More

    The New iPad Makes Apple’s Tablet Domination Clearer Than Ever

    Even if you have perfect vision, indulge me here for a second. You know when you go in for an eye exam and you’re asked to look at a combination of letters and numbers on a chart against a far wall? You read the first few lines, then realize you actually can’t go any further. Then you get prescribed glasses (or contacts) and you can all of a sudden read every letter and number. Read More

    iPad

    It’s sort of funny that the only major thing those in the rumor business got wrong was the name of the new iPad. It’s not the previously presumed “iPad 3″, nor is it the “iPad HD”. It’s just the iPad. And that’s what it will be from now on. This was surprising because our expectations were set for a new name. But it really shouldn’t be all… Read More

    The iPad HD Sucks*

    *I haven’t actually seen it yet. I’m not actually sure what features it will have. I’m quite sure I’m a jackass for saying so right now. But hey — FIRST!!!! There was a time not too long ago when the day before an Apple event was the time for everyone to get their last-minute predictions in. For the most part, it was a moment of pure wonder. These days, it… Read More

    Report: Apple To Unveil An 8GB iPad 2 With The iPad 3, Begin Production On 7.85-inch iPad In 3Q12

    Apple has as a little event on the books next Wednesday. Maybe you heard about it. The iPad 3, with its high-res screen, is said to launch on that day. But there could be more surprises. Several “one more things,” if you will. Get out your salt shakers. Digitimes is stating this morning through two separate reports that Apple plans on announcing an 8GB iPad 2 along with the iPad 3.

    Video: This Isn’t The iPad 3… But We Can Dream, Right?

    Are you ready for the iPad 3? We are. We’ve got all kinds of coverage on when Apple’s unveiling the little darling, what you should expect, and whether or not a little iPad is even something Apple would consider. But to break up the monotony (and annoyance) of truth mixed with rumor, I decided to hit you guys with a straight-up lie. So to be clear, this is not the iPad 3. Not… Read More

    Leaked! Here’s The iPad 3′s Bulky Back Casing

    The iPad 3 is still weeks away from being announced, but Chinese tech blog M.I.C.gadget managed to snag a back shell for the iPad 3 from “one of our most reliable sources.” As you can see from the pics after the jump the case is slightly thicker than the svelte iPad 2 back panel. The next-gen tablet still has the tapered styling of its predecessor. It just looks like a slightly… Read More

    I’m Already Bored With The iPad 3

    The iPad 3 is coming next month. Or so says the endless rumors. These rumors also state the next iPad will have higher resolution screen and high-speed data connection. But I couldn’t care less. The iPad 3, if that’s really its name, sounds like a stop-gap upgrade to me. You see, I’m perfectly happy with my iPad 2. Save the addition of an SD card slot, there isn’t a… Read More

    Retina Ready: Apple’s New Year’s Resolution?

    In a few weeks, Apple will unveil the next generation iPad, John Packowski of AllThingsD confirms today. If history (and carrier code) is any indication, it should go on sale shortly after that. Maybe even just a few days later. And that’s interesting because it doesn’t give developers a lot of time to prepare. And they’ll want to prepare for the higher resolution… Read More

    Bloomberg: iPad 3 To Have Quad-Core CPU, LTE, High-Def Screen

    You’ve just got to love the timing. First, Apple announces their education-focused media event smack dab in the middle of CES. Now, just as CES is winding down, Bloomberg has “three people familiar with the product” spilling purported details on the next iPad. Whether or not Apple won CES without even being there, they’re certainly trying. Read More

    Supply Line Troubles To Delay iPad 3 Launch?

    Analysts and pundits have been predicting an iPad 3 with a late 2011 launch for some time now, but if accounts from suppliers in Asia are to be believed, there just is no way that’s going to happen — if the rumors of the high-DPI screen are correct in the first place (and we think they are). A 9.7″ display sporting 2048×1536 pixels, four times more than the current iPad… Read More

  • No AMOLED Panels For The iPad 3, Unfortunately

    There has been some speculation as of late that Apple might upgrade to AMOLED panels for the iPad 3, rumors that were effectively squashed by industry sources claiming that the current rate of AMOLED panel production won’t be able to meet iPad 3 demand, according to DigiTimes. Read More

  • Will A Thunderbolt Hit The iPhone/iPad Before A Full Ascension Into The Cloud?

    This morning’s upgrades to Apple’s iMac line of computers brought a range of nice features. But most were just spec bumps. The big new addition is Thunderbolt. Following the initial roll-out to the MacBook Pros, the new super high-speed ports are clearly destined to be a key component across Apple’s product lines. But what about Apple’s two key newer products: the… Read More

    Yes, Apple Is Lining Up For A "Surprise" This Fall. And Yes, It's Likely An "iPad 3"

    The following may sound a little crazy considering that the iPad 2 has not even been acknowledged or introduced by Apple yet. But from what we’re hearing, the next iteration of the iPad — let’s call it “iPad 3″ to keep it simple — may be coming along sooner than people realize. Earlier today, HP held a big event in San Francisco to unveil their latest… Read More
