iPad 3 Speculation

Crystal Ball

tomA co-worker just asked if she should wait for the iPad 3 to be released or get an iPad 2 now.  Looking into my crystal ball, I suspect that the advantage of an iPad 3 might be…

4G, SIRI, higher res screen and a new processor.

I can also dream and say that Quin thinks Apple should make an iPod-Pad, which is smaller than an iPad but bigger than a iPod.  Having played with a Kindle Fire over the holiday, I think it would be a similar form factor, but lighter.

Bill, what are your predictions?

billLooking into my crystal ball, I would add more storage and a Thunderbolt Port to your list. Other new options might include a built-in SD card slot, and a better camera. Oh, and of course there is the need for a carbon fibre case…

The bigger news this month for iPads might be software-related rather than hardware-related. There are rumors floating around about changes to iBookstore. Look for an Apple announcement this month.

Personally, I am waiting for the next generation AppleTV…
