AT&T threw a curve ball at its keynote when it announced this Titan refresh would be hitting the states with support for 4G LTE -- a much welcomed first for devices running Microsoft's Mango OS. And as if access to those sweet wireless speeds wasn't enough, HTC's leapfrogged its US competition by beefing up the camera module on this 4.7-incher, bumping it to 16 megapixels with an f/2.6 lens and setting a new standard for imaging on stateside handsets. Unfortunately, that signature, elegant build has gone by the wayside, replaced here by a more traditional encasing.
This year’s Consumer Electronics Show was just as large and incomprehensible as ever; thousands of vendors, more than 100,000 attendees (140K by one estimate), acres of show floor to walk and dozens upon dozens of behind-closed-door meetings. That was CES. Yet, that was not the story of CES 2012. It was, as I see it, a collection of evolutionary product changes and, perhaps, the beginning of the end of planned obsolescence.
Rumors have been circulating for months about the next-generation iPad. Now they’re really ramping up. Wednesday saw the release of its supposed specs, and when it could arrive.
Boy Genius Report claimed a source had an iPad 3 prototype, and sent the tech site various development images that reveal more information about the device and its components.
Meanwhile, Amazon added two iPad 3 books to its European site — Ipad 3 pour les nuls, or iPad 3 for Dummies in French, and Auf die Schnelle iPad 3, which is German for iPad 3 on the Fly, according to a report from GameZone.com. iPad 3 for Dummies is scheduled to be published on March 29.
As for the specs, the images obtained by BGR show data points to model numbers J1 and J2, which refers to “iPad3,1″ and “iPad3,2.” This indicates that the iPad could be made available in two different versions — one for Wi-Fi and one perhaps with Wi-Fi and GSM/CDMA/LTE.
“From the data in the photos, which contain the output from an iPad 3 using a development and debug tool called iBoot, we can infer plenty of information about the upcoming iPad 3,” BGR said.
