Apple Plans To Release 8 GB iPad 2 Alongside 16 GB And 32 GB iPad 3
The DigiTime’s sourсe noted:
“In addition to iPad 3, Apple is also expected to unveil an 8GB iPad 2, allowing the tablet PC series to cover different segments and to defend against Windows 8-based tablet PCs”.
The report also said that Apple will launch 16 GB and 32 GB versions of the iPad 3 with no mention of a 64 GB model or potential 128 GB model.
Both iPad 2 and the original iPad top out at 64 GB, and although Apple is promoting its iCloud service that allows users to download on-demand content, a reduction in maximum memory capacity would be an odd decision for the company. With the iPad 3 rumored to have a 2048 x 1536 "Retina" display the tablet would be capable to display higher-resolution app and video content, which, in turn, would obviously require larger files.
A move to only two memory capacities for the iPad 3 would also be at odds with leaked part numbers for the new device. These part numbers show that Apple is preparing three versions (Good/Better/Best) of each new model, which presumably indicates to three different capacities.
