Now that CES is over, everyone is waiting for a serious announcement from Apple, and according to Digg founder Kevin Rose, quoting a “good authority”, the announcement is coming very soon.
The same source says that it will have front and back cameras, as well as a retina display, but another source told Rose that the display will have a higher dpi, but it technically won’t be a retina one. Now, considering the fact that the iPad’s display resolution is already great – 1024 x 768 at 9.7 inches, this thing should be pretty groovy retina or no retina.
On the other hand, the cameras will be perfect for FaceTime, Google Voip/Video chat and Skype’s video chat which is already available on the iPhone. My thinking is the new iPad could possibly be the new all-in-one wonder slash mobile phone killer for the mobile office. Just grab a groovy bluetooth headset and you should rockin!
But until the actual unit is announced, we’ll just have to hold tight and wait. That being said, if your in the market for an iPad today, hold tight and just chill for now. No need buying an older 1st gen iPad when it’s new big brother is possibly just days away from being released. If nothing else, after the announcement the 1st gen units will be sold at firesale prices at least in the first wave as Mac Fanboys rush out to pick one up.
