We buy laptops, smartphones and all that jazz because we’re nerds at heart. And nothing is more like a drug to the nerd community than a hotly anticipated new gadget release. We’ve already done an iPad 3/3S/HD rumour round up, but since the big day is TOMORROW, here’s a few more titbits to mull over while you sell iPads, smartphones and old Kindles to our awesome team!
Tim Cook is the new CEO of Apple; at 6PM U.K time tomorrow he’ll be announcing either the new iPad 3/3S/HD or possible the coming of the Age of Dragons. We can but guess.
Maybe a mini-iPad? It’s one of the least likely scenarios, especially off the back of the iPhone 4S, but a mini-iPad created to battle directly with the Kindle could happen. Steve Jobs was NOT a fan of 7” displays (we all have our quirks…..) so releasing a 7” tablet might be considered jumping, dancing and having a party on his grave by Apple fans and devoted employees.
So, with the mini-iPad set aside for some other time, what’s on the cards? Better display, better processor, front and back magnetic smartcase, better camera, and maybe 4G connectivity.
4G is perhaps the least likely, as it seems a little pre-emptive to release a 4G iPad when there isn’t yet a 4G iPhone. As for the other possibilities, we reckon Apple would be missing a trick to skimp on any of them! You’re only going to sell iPad 2s to us if you feel like the 3rd Gen iPad is worth the price.
Only one more sleep!
