We all know the iPad 3 is coming in the year 2012, just don’t know exactly when during the year. Spring is usually the Apple announcement time for new products and the latest rumors point to a March announcement about the much anticipated iPad 3.
iPad 3 might have a dual-core A6 vs a quad-core A6
The recent release of a possible iPad 3 body hints at an obviously faster processor and bigger battery. However, not everyone is convinced that the iPad 3 will be sporting a quad-core processor. The iPad 3 processor could just be a speedier A6 which would probably put it close to a quad core processor speed anyway.
Usually the iPads and iPhones get thinner with each generation, well it looks like the iPad 3 might break that trend because of the higher resolution display and processor needs a larger battery to keep the run time up around 10 hours. It’s possible that the iPad 3 might be 1-3mm thicker then the already super thin iPad 2. This is probably not a big deal to most people as the iPad 2 is incredibly thin and customers would rather have a better battery life then a 2mm thinner tablet.
Eitherway we’re looking forward to all the cool iPad 3 keyboard cases that will be available.
