So it looks like the Apple iPad 3 will have a much improved display. Although not confirmed (these things never are until Cupertino deigns to inform us), that's the widely held view. But hang fire if you're hoping for a steroid-fuelled quad-core processor because a report just out claims that's unlikely.
As for its authenticity or, indeed, credibility, we're not sure. It was published on The Verge but lacks a source. So whilst it could have come from an insider at Infinite Loop (unlikely), there's just as much chance that it came from the blind man with the guide dog who lives at number 6 (easily likely).
Anyway, we'll indulge it a little and give you a heads up of the gist which claims that the GPU will be ramped up to power this claimed 9.7-inch Retina display, despite being the same dual-core jobbie provided in the iPad 2. Meanwhile, the physical device will look almost identical to what is currently on the market, albeit with a whole millimetre shaved off the size.
One reason this could all be a load of baloney is that it contradicts the findings of developers who noticed the BETA of iOS 5.1 was fired to run on a quad-core device. Incidentally, Samsung is making the A6 chipset - meaning that the two companies remain in and out of the courtroom in one sense, yet still happy to work with each other in another.
Anyway, not long to wait now - the iPad 3 is expected to hit in the next few weeks. Prepare for queues and a flurry of iPad 2s being shoved on eBay!
