Apple iPad 3
Unveiling on the 7th March?
Apple set out invitations to journalists for the launch this week.
The invitation said, 'We have something you really have to see. And touch.'
The invitation shows a finger over an iPad screen, pointing to the Calendar app, which is set to March 7.
The iPad 3 is expected to feature a number of improvements including a much higher resolution Full HD screen, better processors, higher-resolution cameras, an updated software interface that could include Apple's voice assistant Siri and possibly a resized screen.
It has been reported that that iPad 3 processor will be a 'quad-core' device, a step that would put Apple's tablet ahead of competing devices such as Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in terms of computing power, and enable a new generation of high-powered apps.
Apple pioneered the tablet market two years ago but competition is growing and it is now one of the fastest-growing sectors of the computer industry. The Company has sold more than 55 million iPads worldwide. Apple is hoping that new model will beat back competition and keep them in a dominant position but there is a range of tablets on the market powered by Google’s Android operating system that are just as attractive.
It is not yet known when the new device will be available for sale.
