As you’ve probably already heard, there’s a new iPad, big whoop!
Last night at Apple’s Media event, they announced the 3rd generation of the Apple TV and the 3rd iPad, dubbed just the new iPad. The only difference in the apple tv was 1080p, which doesn’t really make it a worthwhile upgrade. A new User Interface was also shown, but updates to the current generation of apple tv’s has already begun rolling out. If you were following my twitter, then you would know that I didn’t really give a shit. It launches march 16th at $99.
On to the iPad, nothing that great besides the resolution. Yup, that’s right, 2048-by-1536-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi), that’s more than HD, imagine watching ‘The Social Network’ on that. Other upgrades include a 5 megapixel iSight camera, similar to that of the iphone 4S, Quad Core Graphics on a Dual Core chip, Siri dictation(android ripoff) and 4GLTE, which has speeds of up to 74mbps, USA and Canada only. Also, it’s thicker and heavier than the iPad2, and its just called the iPad, no 3 or HD. Launches March 16th starting at $499. Pre order from now.
Probably the most important part of the entire keynote, Tim Cook ended with “We’re only just beginning” and stated there was much more to come in 2012, so here’s what I think.
1. iPhone 5
yes, the smallest part of the revolution, it’s definitely what they start off with, and its surely coming
2.New iPod’s hopefully
Have I mentioned how much I hate the current gen Nano? well it’s shit. Super shit. The 4th gen was still the best, ever.
No, not the apple TV, an actual TV with apple tv features in it, and hopefully, retina display!
4. Complete Re-vamp of the Mac line up.
Yes, newly redesigned Macbook Airs, Pros and iMacs. And my dream? Touch Screen with retina display and Siri.
5. Mac OS 11
Probably what they are gonna end this year with, the new iteration of the Mac Operating System, it’s time to say goodbye to the MAC OS X name, it’s had a long and full life, adn if windows is revamping, it’s time they try to keep up.
Will I be buying the new iPad? No. Will I be buying the iPad 2 now that it’s $400? maybe. But I most probably will be buying a tablet this year for movies and youtube. I most probably will be getting the BB PlayBook though, cause it’s cheap 😀
