Jeremy Horwitz, editor-in-chief of iLounge, appears to be glued to twitter if the past 24 hours are anything to go by. How does 70+ posts sound? Pretty glued, if you ask me.
Anyway, of those 70-odd, there were a handful of interesting tweets, particularly the ones revealing lots of specs and junk for the imminent iPad 3. Ready?
Firstly, we’ve got upgrades for both iPad cameras. The iPad 3’s front-facing camera will go HD and support FaceTime video chat, while the rear shooter will be "the same as the iPhone 4S's".
The body of the iPad 3 won’t be dramatically different from the iPad 2. Horwitz says: “Think iPad 2 Pro, not a redesign.” The iPad 3 will, however, be around 1mm thicker to accommodate the new parts.
As we’ve been hearing recently, the iPad 2 is expected to stick around at a lower price point. The 16GB model might be priced at around $299-399, but Jeremy speculates that an 8GB iPad 2 at $199 could seriously damage the Amazon Kindle Fire.
As for the date, the iPad 3 isn’t expected to arrive this month, as Apple wouldn’t want to upset those who’ve received an iPad 2 for Christmas. We still reckon it’ll drop in March or April.
