New iPad for the Holidays

Nov 19, 2010 by

The holidays are just around the corner, and an iPad might be on someone’s holiday wishlist. Apple has sold about 7.46 million iPads up to late September.
According to what is said on the streets about the next generation of iPads, Apple is really up to something this time after a bad year with few iPhone 4 issues and iOS 4 bugs. Here is what Apple may include in the next generation of iPad.

  1. FaceTime: Since the iPod received Face Time, rumors say iPad will include FaceTime following the success of Apple’s mobile video chat with the iPhone 4 – in other words: it’s a logical expected move from Apple for the next year.
  2. Camera: If the next generation of iPad is to come with a front facing camera, it’s clear enough that a rear camera would be what it needs to complete it. Analysts at investment firm Detwiler Fenton said in late October that, based on research within Apple’s supply chain, the next iPad will have a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, according to Barron’s. Does an iPad need a camera though?
  3. Mini USB: Analysts think the new iPad will have a mini USB instead of a 30-pin dock connecter – aside from being thinner and lighter. According to Taiwan-based Digitimes, Apple is getting component manufacturers ready for the next generation and will complete building in February!
Will Apple be making major changes for the next generation of iPad, to stop Android based tablets from dominating after Android based smartphones started to be a big competitor for iPhone or does Apple have different plans from rumours and speculations that are spreading like wildfire.
