Demand for the iPad 2 is just now beginning to stabilize and already we're clamoring about the next iPad 3. Even iPhone 5 rumors are out of control, and that's no thanks to the companies that make the components for these devices, who are already working several models ahead of us and feeling the heat to keep the wow factor high with each new launch.
According to a new report, display makers are stuggling to keep up with the industry's appetite for innovation.
According to a report from The Korea Times, Apple began testing a new iPad screen manufactured by LG, as well as with longtime frenemy Samsung. The screen, reportedly capable of supporting quad extended graphics (QXGA) with a monster screen resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, would certainly continue to differentiate the iPad from its would-be competitors. But that Samsung is also a part of the deal makes us scratch our heads just a little, especially because the two are in major competitors.
Just when you thought you’d gotten nice and cozy with your iPad 2, along comes all of these nasty rumors about an iPad 3/iPad HD that might come flying into stores later this year -- which may require Apple taking on a second manufacturer to keep up with demand.
The Mobile Safari web browser Apple includes with every iOS device is quite fine indeed, but some simply want the freedom of choice we enjoy on desktop platforms. Now that the popular Opera Mini browser is making the leap onto the iPad, we have more choices than ever.
By this date on the calendar, we’d usually be within spitting distance of a new iPhone -- but that’s all changing this year, with rumblings that an iPhone 5 won’t appear until September. But that can’t stop us from collecting the best and brightest of the rumors we’ve heard so far and presenting them to our readers.
In the past couple weeks we've covered desktop customization, iPad customization, and even put together an icon gallery. This week we've got some eye candy for the one device that's always with you--your iPhone. These beautiful iPhone wallpapers represent some of the best out there and are fully optimized for the iPhone 4, retina resolution and all.
Remember those rumors about a Retina Display-equipped iPad 3 coming later this year? Well, just walk on by, nothing to see here -- as it turns out, component suppliers are now saying that such talk is much ado about nothing.
It may be iPad 2 day, but that doesn’t mean that speculation about the next iPhone can’t also be newsworthy. If recently released engineering diagrams are to be believed, the iPhone 5 may indeed have a larger, edge-to-edge screen.
Although the screen resolution of the next iPad continues to be the subject of much debate, a new batch of photos from a Chinese repair shop appear to show that the iPad 2 display will, at the very least, be thinner and lighter than the original model.
There’s been plenty of chatter in recent weeks about the potential for the next iPad to pack a higher-resolution display, but the leading speculation says it won’t be happening -- at least not until the iPad 3, presumably next year, says one analyst.
