Best Buy’s website has been been notorious for leaking information regarding Apple’s upcoming products in the past. Of course it’s a different story that some of these leaks were grossly misleading. For example, back in 2009, a new product appeared on the website that was listed as a “mobile computing device”. This eventually turned out to be the updated MacBook.
Anyway, our bone of contention today are three new iPad SKUs (Stock Keeping Unit) that appeared on Best Buy’s website.
Market Research firm ChangeWave has conducted a survey that looked at the possible impact of the Verizon iPhone on U.S. wireless service providers and their subscribers.
Published earlier this week, the survey provides some really interesting statistics. The sample size of the survey was about 4,050 consumers.
We’ve heard several rumors and speculations about Retina Display coming to the second generation iPad that is expected to be launched towards the end of March or April.
MacRumors have found new graphics in iBooks application with higher resolution labelled “iPadx2”, which indicates that iPad 2 may come with a display that has twice the resolution in both directions (2048×1536) of the current iPad (1024×768). This means that iPad 2 may come with a 2048×1536 screen resolution at 260 DPI compared to current iPad’s 1024×768 screen resolution at 132 DPI.
Until now, Apple’s iOS devices including the likes of the iPhone 4, iPad, iPod Touch 4G, and Apple TV (2010) uses the PowerVR SGX535 GPU from Imagination Technologies for all their graphics rendering needs. Considering the fact that this chip has been in business since the iPhone 3GS days, its longevity is commendable indeed. However, it is clear that Apple would need to look for an upgrade when it comes to the next generation of iOS devices and they might actually have found the perfect one.
The days of Verizon calling the iPhone “a tiara wearing digitally clueless beauty pageant queen” may now well be in the past. But the fact that it has taken close to four years for Verizon to announce the iPhone raises our curiosity levels about what transpired behind the scenes even further. Both Apple and Verizon are known to be companies that demand a high level of control on their products.
A recent article on Bloomberg Businessweek takes a deep look at the compromises that both the companies agreed to in order to bring the Verizon iPhone to fruition.
