The day has finally come. Apple has finally pulled the curtain on what they are calling as the “new iPad”, and we finally know for certain what the device has in store. Some of the more sensible rumors about the iPad 2's successor - most of which were outlined in an earlier post - have come to fruition, and we have a roundup of everything new in the third-gen iPad as announced at this morning's San Francisco press event right here.
Before a product is announced, the actual name of it is always a speculative, educated guessing game. The last couple have months have been dominated by talk of the "iPad 3", but, with the Retina display all-but a certainty, some sources now suggest the Cupertino's third tablet installment will be called iPad HD.
An interesting article posted in the Korea Times claims that Apple's next iPad device will feature a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels, way more detailed than the 1920x1080 pixel milestone of what is considered to be full HD. Samsung and LG, the world leaders in the LCD display manufacturing fields, are said to be the two companies from which Apple is conducting quality testing.
In the tech blogging game, rumors are very much a hazard of the job. While sometimes we receive tips that make just enough sense to be real, others are more along the 'my brother's dog's vet's aunt heard that...' line.
