A new report says Apple plans to unveil a new iPad
early next month.
According to AllThingsD, a website affiliated with The
Wall Street Journal, Apple is holding an event in
San Francisco the first week of March.
Apple declined comment.
Rumors have been circulating for weeks about the next
iPad, with many claiming that Apple's next tablet will
boast several changes, such as a quad-core processor
to a higher-resolution screen. Rumors say that this
screen would be no other than a Retina display,
similar to the one used by iPhone 4s. However, an iPad
with a screen similar to the Retina display on the
iPhone would have to have a resolution of
approximately 3,220-by-2,060 pixels (!). Regarding the
processor, it is more reasonable for Apple to avoid
using a quad-core chip instead of a dual-core
system-on-a-chip, in order to save batery life.
Siri is also possible to find its way to the new iPad.
