The internet is rife with stories and reports about Apple iPad 3 launch. Even Channel NewsAsia carried a very brief report on AllThingD.com article on the probable iPad 3 launch in the first week of March 2012 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
There is no leaked photo or spec yet – I couldn’t find any – only speculations. The new iPad 3 is said to be faster and has a higher resolution display, possibly 2048 by 1536.
If the rumors were true, we can expect the iPad 3 release date in late March or early April for USA market and possibly iPad 3 release date in Singapore to be May or June.
I used the iPad and iPad 2, also the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4S. Unless the iPad 3 has some revolutionary features at an attractive price point, I don’t think I will buy it. I will rather go for an Android tablet, especially a 7″ Samsung tablet.
Why Not a Smaller iPad 3?
I am already using the MacBook Air. I don’t want to carry another 10″ device. I want something smaller than my MacBook Air but more powerful, faster and has a larger display than the iPhone 4S. I also want the battery life to last more than 12 hours so that I don’t have to charge it every day. I am not concerned about Siri and USB port or external card slot. I just want to be able to read a book, watch a movie or reply a full length email on a small, thin, lightweight and long lasting tablet.
Is that too much to ask for?
