NYT: iPad 3 to Feature Faster Processor and Truly Amazing Screen
Posted on February 10, 2012 by eli courey
The New York Times claims to have sources backing up the rumors that the iPad 3 will feature a faster processor, a “truly amazing” screen and a design nearly identical to the iPad 2.
An Apple employee said that the version of the new iPad that is being tested inside the company is “essentially the same size and shape as the iPad 2,” with an improved and “truly amazing” screen. The tablet will include a faster processor, said the employee, who did not want to be identified because Apple is not fond of leaks.
Of course, it’s pretty obvious the iPad 3 will have a faster processor. The only time Apple has not upgraded the processor of an iOS device was when they went from the original iPhone to the iPhone 3G, but that’s mostly because it was still way better and faster than anything else out on the market at the time. As far as a Retina display, that has also been expected for a while, and with the iPad being used so much for reading, I think a high resolution screen is a very important upgrade.
