iPad3 or iPad HD, what'll it be?

Seeing as it's going to be sporting an ultra high res retina display, many believe it's going to be called the iPad HD. My guess is iPad 3 as the HD moniker has been used on many devices already, none of which actually had a screen with anything like the pixel per inch density of the new iPad. Perhaps it'll be called something else? iPad 3R perhaps? R for retina.

I think the bulk of iPads will be sold to non-techies, who won't care about the constant misuse of the 'HD' term.

It could even be iPad 2S  Wink

I'm just getting a feeling that there could be something special today......like being able to feel the textures on the screen, apart from HD resolution.

Well, we'll know for definite from 6pm this evening when we'll be reporting live from the Apple launch event in London.

RE: iPad3 or iPad HD, what'll it be?

Looking forward to see what the new ipad offers??  My wife has already got her eye on getting a new ipad and its not even out yet....

Our ipad 1 3g 64gb will be sold and a 16 gb model bought as we never use any of the storage on it!!  

Is there a live video thread for the apple launch tonight??

RE: iPad3 or iPad HD, what'll it be?

My prediction (well, the more believable stuff I read online):  wild speculation by the media will dull what will be a pretty good release.  Where is the small iPad, the 50" TV and other assorted things we made up?  People will buy tonnes of the new iPad HD and atv3 anyway Smile

 

The Android guys will claim its a failure when Apple release an A5X processor with two cores and not 4.    People will by tonnes of the new iPad HD and atv3 anyway.

 

The mysterious $39 'B82'  product doing the rumour rounds will probably be a new iteration of smart covers, with a back cover.

 

I think BB is right RE: feedback, hopefully localised haptics (quite ones).  I've had phones with haptics in the past, my Motorola A1000 used the speaker drivers to vibrate the phone whenever the stylus clicked.  It was a bit rubbish.

I predict the usual over-hyped snoozefest, followed by months of tiresome rumours being passed off as news, until the next 'event'

RE: iPad3 or iPad HD, what'll it be?

Ever since I've changed from an iPhone 3GS to a 4S, I'm loving the lack of big greasy fingerprints!! So, along with retina display, that's a good enough reason for me to get one of the new ones and dump my iPad 1. Although, I think I'll be leaving the 3G option this time round, and I'll not be going for the full 64gb this time either....
