Apple’s third-generation iPad could bring a 2080x1536p resolution display and it is possible that the tech giant will launch its new tablet before Christmas, reports (opens in new tab) suggest.
Asian research company CLSA certainly considers it a possibility, commenting: “While most vendors appear fixated on matching the specs and features of iPad2, our checks suggest Apple will release iPad3 in time for the holiday season, sporting a better display and LTE capabilities.”
Despite these speculations, it is far more likely that Apple will launch an improved iPad 2 version with a higher resolution display rather than a third-generation tablet. Information is too scant for the time being so as to predict what Apple products will hit the stores in six months time.
It is true that a display with such a high-resolution will definitely improve viewing quality, but it will also drain the battery. If Apple is indeed planning to integrate such a display in its iPad 3, the company must have found a solution for the battery life issue.
More and more rumours are also suggesting that Apple is planning to release a new MacBook Air in the near future, and the discounts Best Buy has offered for MacBook Air computers could add weight to these rumours.
The Cupertino-based company could release a new MacBook Air in June and ship 380,000 units in the first shipment batch, PC World reports, citing Economic Daily sources.
Previous it was thought that Apple could launch ultra-thin MacBooks powered by Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt technology, and perhaps the upcoming MacBook Air units will indeed integrate these features.
