‘iPad Mini’ And 4G iPad 3 Rumoured To Be Announced Within Days

“7-inch tablets are tweeners: too big to compete with a smartphone, and too small to compete with an iPad.

Why I'm Buying The iPhone 5, And Why You'd Be Wise To Do So Too

The iPhone 5 wasn't the revolutionary device people anticipated.  I get that.  The feeling of solidarity through disappointment about the sizeable lack of innovation from the last generation (which had already stung many before with a near identical device compared to the year before that) has been felt by even those faithful solely to Apple.  This should have been the phone they announced in 2011.

Apple's new iPad will quite deservedly draw many people in with its super-crisp retina display (a 'resolution' in tablet PC's, as many are putting it), slightly better camera (who really takes photos or videos with their unwieldy iPad anyway), admittedly more powerful processor and 4G capabilities (the UK has no networks using such connectivity). But is that enough of a reason to make the jump from the iPad, let alone the iPad 2?

The New iPad, 'New iPad', Finally Unveiled By Apple

The tech world sits, watches, waits as Tim Cook walks on stage of what is his second major keynote as the new head of Apple to unveil the long-rumoured third incarnation of the world's most popular tablet. The iPad 3 has been heavily rumoured arguably ever since the iPad 2 finally made its way out to the world, such is the tenacity of Apple fanboys (we've fuelled the fire from time to time, it has to be said), but this evening the curtains have finally been lifted and we can welcome the device with welcome arms, fingers, voice.
