Suggest minor physical changes but larger battery cells

The rumors are saying that the new tablet could be released in March. We hope so...

iPad 3 back cases are popping out like mushrooms in Autumn. At least two websites are reporting that they have acces to the iPad 3 back cases and they look pretty similar to the iPad 2 ones except for the position of the camera hole and the suggestion of a large battery space.



A. You can see here that the mounts for the logic board are very different, which means the logic board shape will be different allowing for . . . .

B. More battery. The width of where the logic board sits on the iPad 2 appears much larger than that of the iPad 3. We have long heard that the iPad 3 was going to provide longer battery life, and this back housing seems to support that.


One of the websites also shows that the magnets used for the SmartCover technology remains the same.

Speculations lead us to have the iPad 3 launched by March, featuring exciting atributes like the Retina Display and the A6 quad-core proccessor.

Are you going to buy one? We want ten! :D

^ I actually use my iPad2 a lot. I got it as a gift... I didn't buy it because I thought it would be useless - when infact, due to the nature of my job, lugging a laptop around with a charger, and if i gotta get up and go fast - the ipad is so simple and quick.

I'll sell my 2 and get a 3. it'll cover a chunk of the cost.

at the same time - you must be a "fandroid"... while I love android - I think the fandroids are just as annoying as the die hard apple dorks. You're just as guilty as the next guy for being biased and close minded.

I'm glad iOS and Android exist. forces companies to try to improve, gives everyone a choice - because incase you didn't notice, not every solution/product interest or works or fills the need for every person.

hell, even your signature "fanboy anatomy" pretty much describes your attitude in your post. close minded.

Far from it, I don't own a smartphone and I'll never pay the ridiculous price for a data plan...I have a PC and internet at home. Now if my employer pays for it, that's a different story. For personal use, text and voice are all I need...I don't need to Google **** or watch Youtube videos on the go.

There is no "Improving" when you put out a new piece of hardware every 9 months, that is just the previous iteration with a couple new features tacked on that were purposefully left out, and you disallow your previous gen customers access to new software features claiming that it's incompatible...when it's quickly proven to be far from the truth, and even found to run on your other devices 3 generations behind!

You keep drinking the Kool-Aid though, I'm not jealous that the likes of Apple run you and everyone else through the ringer and hose you for your money...if you're willing to let them, you all deserve it.
