Loyal Apple followers desperate for iPad 3 rumors and release-date whispers have of course been rather overloaded as of late to say the least, though when any suggestions and ‘insights’ come with images to back them up, this is when the attention and excitement really hits fever pitch.
Well, if the latest sources are to be believed and the apparent leaked images presented prove genuine, a larger camera lens hole in the case of the iPad 3 is all the confirmation we could ever need of significantly bumped up camera quality – most likely the 8 megapixels we had all come to expect, or perhaps even more still?
The same leaked images also seem to confirm that the iPad 3 will indeed appear as a slightly thicker tablet than its predecessor, though to exactly how big an extent remains to be seen. Of course, any size increase will likely be more than justified by way of possible 4G LTE connectivity, boosted battery life, Retina quality display panel and a new A6 or A5X processor.
In related news from a rather different side of the fence, RIM has finally made public the new PlayBook OS 2.0 operating system for the long-suffering PlayBook tablet, which offers users a number of new features than really should never have been absent in the first place – such as email and calendar support. Needless to say, the timing of the release is quite clearly to contend with the incredible attention the iPad 3 has already captured, but in the eyes of most industry experts and consumers alike, the phrase “Too little, too late” may be something of an understatement at this point in time to say the very least.
