Well, I am still to get my hands on the New iPad as it is still not available in my part of the world. But I have been reading lately about the Thickness and the weight between iPad-2 and the New iPad which is just marginal, but a lot of people find it noticeable. I had plans to get the iPad-3 from abroad but people have suggested me otherwise because if I had any problems be it Techical issues, Defects anything I will not be able to get any support or replacement here as the product is not launched here.
So meanwhile there was this passing thought in my mind, what if some one passes on the iPad-3 right now, hoping that the iPad-4 will be more slimmer in weight atleast to what the iPad-2 was ! Which according to me was the perfect weight though I have still not held iPad-3 in my hands so cant really comment on how bulky iPad-3 is, But People are already feeling the weight. Now I do understand the iPad-3 with such beefed up specs and Display could not have managed with the iPad-2’s battery and hence the Bulk of the Battery. But if you guys recollect there was this talk about Apple talking to sharp for IGZO displays which would have achieved Retina Display with the required Pixel Per Inch at the same time not adding to the Bulk of the battery.
So if were to talk about now that the iPad lineage has reached its optimum I mean now everything is there, what else could it get? better display, better battery, better GPU. I don’t think Apple will experiment with its size. So Now the only desirable thing left is maybe if it was slimmer if not dramatically atleast to what iPad-2 is. So how realistic is this thought that maybe iPad-4 will be slimmer than iPad-3. Which I think is now only possible if Apple changes the Display Technology used because, had it been possible in the current Display they would have already done it. So now only if it is IGZO or something similar, can it get slimmer and in other respect I think the iPad Family as a product has reached the optimum isn’t it ?
And of course the endless need for faster and more faster processor and GPU which is never ending
Any thoughts ?
