We’re guessing that Apple may use Wednesday’s iPad media event to at least mention that publishing giant Random House is now part of the iBookstore after switching to the agency model -- with a number of titles already available.
You may remember Dr. Raymond Soneira, President of DisplayMate Technologies, from a few interviews we did with him awhile back concerning the science of mobile handset displays and their faulty brightness controls. Now, the respected display scientist is offering his own predictions about the future of the iPad.
Following up on an AppleInsider report last Friday claiming that this week’s new iPad may available right away, a new report finds that supplies of the current iPad are extremely limited at the moment. One and one equals… two?
One of the biggest holdouts from Apple’s iBookstore may finally join the party, now that Random House has announced a switch to an agency model for e-books, effective Tuesday, March 1. But what does it mean for iBooks?
The invitations have been sent, the banners are flying at Yerba Buena and all that remains now is to see what Apple has on deck for us come Wednesday, March 2 at a special media event that will is expected to reveal the first sequel to the company’s market-leading iPad.
This Scosche form-fitting case is flexible and made of translucent rubber. The only caveat is that it covers the volume control of the iPad 2, and with its new, slanted body-type, that can make accessing the volume button difficult.
This Folio case from Scosche folds out into different orientations so that you can comfortably watch a film with the iPad 2 laying down on your knees, or prop up the device to type up an email. While it does add bulk to the iPad 2's relatively thin form-factor, it does protect the device in its entirety.
If you'd rather go with the Smart Cover for your iPad 2, but want to cover the back, Bodyguardz makes a PVC-based film that's really strong and protects from scuffs. One caveat, however: the carbon fiber skin is difficult to match up with the docking port on the bottom of the iPad 2 and the back-facing camera.
Oh, it's tough alright -- sort of tough to get on, but at least you can be rest assured that it'll stay on and keep your new iPad 2 out of harm's way. The case also features a non-slip grip, which will keep you from dropping the iPad 2 when you're picking it up.
Never mind the fact that Apple has yet to start selling a white iPhone 4 -- a part leak from China seems to indicate that it isn’t stopping the company from possibly offering the next iPad in white as well.
