    Apple might be preparing for a connector change in all their products if pictures of the new iPad3 dock connector is real. Pictures of a smaller 30-pin streamlined configuration have surfaced the web through Macotakara website, an Asian supplier. There is no way to know if that is the prototype the production model will have, but the website does claim the device is already done and ready to be manufactured early next year, with a launch date in March 2012. If that’s the connector Apple has settled on, then it will be the first device since the 2003 iPod not to use the standard size cables.

    If the pictures are true, then other Apple products will need new wires or an adapter that could transform the new connector into the old one so you could interchange the wires from your devices. Macotakara has reported that the iPad 3 would feature the same size screen as the iPad and iPad 2, but it is yet unclear whether or not Apple will increase the screen resolution. It’s already been rumored that Apple is testing retina displays, which leads to questions about the innovations the iPad3 would bring.

    However, we must remember that the leaked components so far have created more far-fetched stories than the actual truth and predicting the final product has always been hard and the predictions inaccurate. A spring 2012 release would keep the ipad on an annual refresh cycle and most Apple users are expecting to see if the new device has Steve Job’s touch.

    I don't need an updated or extra camera. It WOULD be nice we were able to upload docs onto website i.e. resumes and such.

    What's the problem doing that?

    There are several third-party browsers that are able to do this.

    Well, haven't been able to do it yet. I've downloaded iCal, expensive FTP on the go against my better judgement. Will these browsers allow my iPad act as if I were on a pc or Mac to upload docs onto a website ie my resume on monster?

    Would you be so kind as to recommend some browsers? Thanks so much for your help!!

    I like the iCab browser as it allows you to select your browser id for those sites which regard mobile browsers as second rate, if only to avoid those "Have you tried our iPad app" screens.
    Mine for example is set to report itself as firefox 4.

    Changing the docking receptacle will complicate ownership of multiple devices for those with earlier generation gear and
    peripherals. I don't see Apple moving away from its ease of use design and functionality principles.

    Re: retina display for iPad. That's going to be a game changer for pricing. The cost of an iPhone 4s is roughly the same as a 16G
    iPad with present screen technology.
