We all know Apple releases update for its iDevices once a year and it will not be different with iPad either. But we do have some time before anything new comes to iPad(hardware wise that is), but still the tech world is already buzzing with rumours about iPad 2G. So, here is the list of the ones I have heard and some points :
1. iPad 2G To Get A Camera & Facetime
Well its the same story that has been happening with iPod touch as well, which yet to get a camera for itself. But a camera on iPad atleast in the front for those facetime calls will be awesome. Facetime runs on Wifi so works good for iPad as well. About the high resolution back camera doesn’t seem to be happening soon atleast in near future.
2. iPad To Get A Higher Resolution Screen
After the launch of Retina display on iPhone 4 there are plenty of rumours floating around that iPad will be a contender for a high resolution screen. It will not be same exactly same as iPhone 4 but still better. But I am yet to see people complaining about iPad screen, its still gorgeous and content looks crystal clear.
3. Smaller iPads 5.6 / 7 Inch
This is the rumour I have trouble believing, smaller multiple iPad’s doesn’t seem like Apple. Like there was no iPhone Nano or iPod Touch there is a very little possibility of happening the same with iPad. This rumour originated when recently digitimes reported :
The sources noted that Apple has recently placed new iPad orders to Taiwan-based component makers for the fourth quarter of 2010 and the first quarter of 2011 with 9.7-inch, 5.6-inch and 7-inch models all included.
Still having trouble believing it.
