7 inch is not happening.
This is a discussion on iPad 2 Shipping by the end of February 2011? within the Apple iPad News forums, part of the Apple iPad Forums category; 7 inch is not happening....
Gotta hold off for the 3 too as I just got my early xmas gift as well!
I too just got my iPad (Oct), so I probably will not be upgrading any time soon. At least not unless its a fully functional PC in an iPad shell (less the obvious parts we no longer need anyway (like DVD ROM drives, etc.) I can't wait for that to happen! and you know we have the tech to build such a device right now!)
A USB could also help in allowing the user to connect their AirCard to it for internet access. I already have a service through verizon and didn't feel I wanted to pay for another service for the occassional times when a WiFi was not handy. So why should hardware restrict me from being able to slap my AirCard in at the airport and download the latest NY Times?
Just two thoughts off the top. If you know of something that I may not be doing in the best way, please share. Thanks, Ken
Oh, as far as software goes, with my use of Documents to Go, and everything else I have, I don't have any issues there at all.
I believe no external buttons, maybe a power button, to make way for some thinness! Seem like alpt of android tablets cow
D be going buttonless. That's why I think the replaced the screen lock button with mute. And added volume control to the multitasking bar on the iPhone!
Im going to sell my iPad and get the new one, why not?!
Im hoping for:
slightly faster cpu, or overclock
new version of ios
front facing camera
Adding an air card is not on the horizon however a mobile wifi device is actually a better solution vodaphone offers one and also virgin and I understand others in USA have that technology. These devices allow up to 5 wifi devices to connect it is a rechargeable device that is like a thumb drive.
That are available on prepay and contract..
I guess what I am going to say is Apple is moving away from add on devices etc like hard drives cd/DVD and moving rapidly to cloud services plus more use with wifi such as new speakers etc. One can use cameras and sd cards with the adapter plus keyboards using Bluetooth. Bluetooth is limited to headphones, speakers and devices that support audio such as Parrot in card systems.
I think personally that the next major upgrade of the iPad we will see more technology on board and a major move in that area by Apple. Others will also follow a similar path. It is assumed one is not jail broken as t.hat is your alternative. Solid state storage devices is the way to go as they are more reliable. Cd,DVD external hard drives etc are prone to fail or become corrupt.
Hope that helps with your question.
