Patently Apple has discovered a patent filed by Apple in 2009. The patent suggests that the feature spaces which is currently used on Apple desktops, will be seen on the iPad 3.

Businesses Are Seeing Increased Productivity With Tablets
News on the iPad 3 has been relatively quiet as of late. Apple is still having difficulty supplying their stores with the iPad 2; struggling to keep them on shelves for longer than a couple of hours.
What about the iPad 3 and its future use in the business world? A recent survey showed that one in four companies are currently using, or planning to use tablet devices in the scope of their daily activities. We’re willing to bet that a staggering majority are choosing Apple’s iPad.

iOS 5 To Be Announced & Then Released On The iPad 3 Come Fall?
It seems amongst recent reports that Apple will be delaying the release of iOS 5 until the fall.
Originally thought to be released on the iPhone 5 come summer; the only hope now is for Steve Jobs to do a demo of iOS5 when he unveils the iPhone 5.
If this is the case, we would love to see Apple preload the iPad 3 with iOS5; with its rumored release in fall as well! Read the rest of this entry

iPad 3 Likely To Incorporate Samsungs New Retina Display
Samsung, who is trying to compete in the tablet market with the Samsung Galaxy, revealed plans to increase their pixel density to new; never before seen levels.
We were all hoping that the iPad 2 was going to include a higher retina display but as we mentioned in previous updates; it just didn’t pan out for many reasons behind the scenes.
The iPad 3 is guaranteed to have an upgraded screen and we’re willing to bet that Apple will be looking to source the screens from Samsung; that is as long as agreements can be met ahead of time constraints of course. Read the rest of this entry

What Will Be Powering The iPad 3
Since John Gruber, a respected Apple watcher and predictor re-affirmed rumors of a September 2011 release date for the iPad 3 (by making strong hints); we’ve been keeping you up to date with exactly what’s being speculated.
Gruber hinted that HP’s TouchPad is slated for a summer release which would put them well behind the iPad 2 launch, and that they may even be competing with the release of the iPad 3! Competing isn’t the likely term to use we feel since the HP TouchPad would be collecting dust on the shelves if it were to have a similar release date. Read the rest of this entry

Apple’s Peculiar Actions Are Generating Questions And Fueling Rumors
We’d like to focus on some actions that Apple has done recently that have us questioning their plans overall, and for the recent iPad 3 rumors. Although they are habitual in nature with the expected iPad 2 release in March (spring) they did throw many people off with the unveiling of the Verizon iPhone.
iPhone’s are typically a summer launch if we want to follow their systematic releases. It begs the question however; whether or not they are moving away from being predictable or if we are only getting ahead of ourselves. Read the rest of this entry

What We Want To See..
In The iPad 3
Whether or not Apple leaves out key components that the fans will want with each successive generation in order to keep product hype and sales by the millions can only be speculated. Could they have implemented all the elements within the first iPad? Well it is certainly probable from an outsider’s perspective, but no one will ever know.
What do we want to see in the iPad 3; now that the iPad 2 is on store shelves? Well exactly what we’ve been wanting since the launch of the first iPad and now the same things that the iPad 2 is lacking to satisfy our unmet demands! Read the rest of this entry

iPad 3 Release Date Rumors Have Hinted at September 2011
With the iPad 2 officially launched, and currently on back order we are wondering if consumers will start to delay their purchase of an ipad 2; once speculation starts swirling that we may see a September 2011 release date for the iPad 3.
Apple should have certainly foresaw that the iPad 2 would generate large sales with such a loyal following, so why are they so short on tablets? We think they may be working diligently on the ipad 3 as well; which has indirectly caused this issue. Read the rest of this entry
