iPad 3 will be iPad 3D

iPad 3 will be iPad 3DWe’ve heard about the LG Optimus 3D, LG Optimus Pad and HTC Evo 3D. This week we found out that RIM will also embrace 3D material with the BlackBerry PlayBook. Now Apple is rumoured to be the next manufacturer to jump on board the idiotic 3D train, according to RCRW.

RCRW claims that the iPad 3 will be 3D, and attributes the claim to a “Hollywood insider” who said: “The fact that the iPad 3 is 3D is a dead cert.” Apparently said insider went on to add that: “the big film studios were currently running around like blue arsed flies trying to gear up to release plenty of 3D content in time for Apple’s next launch.”

Foxconn, the Taiwanese manufacturer that provides components for Apple, is also said to be screaming: “3D iPad 3!”

The trend for 3D has yet to prove that it has the legs to carry it much farther. Other than James Cameron’s Avatar, there hasn’t been a single film that has truly justified having 3D content. It is complete and utter ****. Playing games in 3D is ****. When will the friggin’ bubble burst?

We’ll see what happens, I guess. But something tells me Apple is too smart to start faffing around with such nonsense.

I think this is just a huge rumour. My bets are not on the ipad 3D.

an iPhone-related rumour? That'd be a first :p

3D gaming is great, turns out stereoscopic vision and depth perception can be quite handy... and, if you don't like it, you get a 2D monitor/screen that does 120 frames per second to boot. Win win.

Ipad 2 can already do 3D.Check some of the vids on youtube.

llclsn, you mean 3D graphics. This rumor is about 3D stereoscopic screen, where you actually see in 3D with your two eyes. But unlike the 3D movies, the images are not coming at you, but instead going deeper in to the screen. Once phones like the HTC Evo 3D come out, you can check one out yourself. Or, take a look at the Nintendo 3DS (but it has low low screen resolution, which I find to be ugly).

If this is true I assume they would call it the 'iPad 3D' rather then 3. Also 3 seems like the pefect gen for 3D because of the number 3 being right there so I would not but it past Apple.
