iPad 3 4G LTE Feature

February 28, 2012 Leave a comment

Ipad 3 is expected to have 4G LTE facilities. And lte is about data transmission speed. Fast file uploads and even faster data downloads. The new iPad 3 set to be released by Apple on 7th March will have at least twice the speed of its predecessor, and will be powered by either A5X processor or A6. Some are even speculating about two iPad3’s, one running on the slower processor and sold at a cheaper price.

Well, rumors are swirling around about different iPad 3 specs and it won’t be until the launch takes place when we will know exactly what is under the hood of the new iPad.

But we can say with a high degree of accuracy that the new iPad is thicker in the middle than iPad 2, because they have been photographed side by side, and size difference is all too noticeable.

What different authors differ is on why the difference in size, with rumors about LTE feature being the cause.

The price of the new iPad tablet is expected to be a bit higher than the iPad 2 because of the added specifications.

The camera will obviously be better than in the previous version, but how much better, that is the question. It could be an 8MP sensor, or even 5 megapixels with LED flash support. We should also expect iCloud, siri incorporated in the iPad 3 from Apple.

iPad 3 Specs, Release Date and other rumors

The new iPad 3 tablet from Apple is set to be released on March 7, according to multiple reliable sources. The specs on the new iPad include retina Display, 8MP camera and LTE technology.

The 8 megapixel camera sensor is the same as that found on the iPhone 4S smartphone that was launched late last year.

The only almost certainty about the new Apple tablet is that iPad 3 will be released to the market on 7th march. We are not even certain about the name. Apple may decide to surprise us there by calling it iPad 2S, iPad 2X, or whatever they might fancy.

Samsung is said to be supplying the next iPad’s display screens. Whoever thought Samsung would be a supplier for Apple? It’s all business, I suppose.

The new iPad 3 looks set to be very successful in the tablet market, just like the iPad 2 if not better. Analysts are predicting the iPad 3 will be sold at prices a bit higher than the previous tablet because of added features like 4G and maybe even wireless charging technology.

The 2048×1536 pixel screen will have the ability to display sharper, clear images when compared with what is available with the iPad 2.

The most talked about specs of the new iPad is probably the processor. Almost every techie was writing about the Quad core A6 CPU up until a few days ago when leaked images of the Logic Board with A5X written on them appeared online.

Now talk is about a dual core processor for the iPad 3, but who knows, really, what Apple is up to?

Does presence of the A5X automatically mean absence of the A6 quad core cpu? Hardly.

Projections in the technological world are that Apple will create a new iPad once every year, and possibly a new iPhone too.

Any new iPad or iPhone is set to be a market leader in terms of sales.

According to MacRumors, the next generation iPad will have displays with a 2048×1536 pixel resolution. Interestingly, it is rumoured that Samsung is supplying those Retina Displays for the iPad 3.

Another almost certainty is the LTE feature on the new iPad, that appears to be confirmed by the fact that iPad 3 is noticeably thicker than the previous version as seen in the image above.

Whitney Houston dead at 48 (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012)

Whitney Houston’s cause of death has not been released; however media reports are saying it was a possible drug overdose. Whitney reportedly spent the week partying hard, drinking and doing drugs. Whitney Houston died in Beverly Hills after attempts to revive her failed, according to police.

The performer had drug and alcohol problems for years, and in May her spokeswoman said she was going back to rehab.

Publicist Kristen Foster told the Associated Press on Saturday that Whitney Houston had died but did not provide further details.

Houston was inspired by several soul singers in her family, including mother Cissy Houston and cousins Dionne Warwick and the late Dee Dee Warwick, as well as her godmother Aretha Franklin.

The singer won two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards during her record-breaking music career.

Houston was once romantically linked to American football star Randall Cunningham and actor Eddie Murphy before she met R&B singer Bobby Brown at the 1989 Soul Train Music Awards.

icc kenya ruling, moreno ocampo

Kenyans have been waiting in anticipation of how the International Criminal Court will rule in the case referred to as the Ocampo 6. The ruling has just been delivered to the defence legal team for communication to their clients.

The 6 Kenyan chaos suspects before The Hague court are Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, Former ministers William Ruto, Henry Kosgey, former police chief Hussein Ali, radio broadcaster Joshua Sang and head of civil service Francis Muthaura.

The International Criminal Court verdict is in relation to prominent personalities in Kenya who were named as suspects in post-election violence in 2007 and 2008 by ICC chief prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo as bearing the biggest responsibility in the violence.

The judges have the courtesy of communicating the ICC ruling to the suspects’ lawyers before they announce their verdict to the world.  The suspects are not required to attend court when the ruling is read but must attend court in person if their cases are confirmed.

Police in Kenya say they have put in place enough measures to ensure law and order regardless of how the ICC ruling goes.

The Nigerian Islamic sect, Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for setting off multiple bombs in the Nothern city of Kano where hundreds have been reported killed.

Despite the Sultan of Sokoto Sa’adu Abubakar has called the sect “anti-Islamic” and an embarrassment to Islam, the sect appears to be thriving andhas recently increased attacks as it aims to make Nigeira, or parts thereof, an Islamic state.

Boko Haram has said their violent action was to retaliate for the arrest of many of its members by the government. The group’s spokesman, Abdul Qaqa told journalists in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital that they would carry out more attacks if the members were not freed immediately.

Boko Haram promotes a version of Islam which makes it “haram”, or forbidden, for Muslims to take part in any political or social activity associated with Western society.

It is officially called People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet’s Teachings and Jihad or, ama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad and was founded 10 years ago by charismatic preacher, Mohammed Yusuf.

Boko Haram propagates a version of Islam that not only forbids any interaction with the Western culture but it is also against the traditional Muslim establishment and the government of Nigeria in Abuja.
