First sample photos from new iPad show dramatic improvement over iPad 2



ipadcamera-1

Vietnamese website Tinh.te claimed on Tuesday to have received an LTE-capable version of Apple's new iPad. And soon there appeared a series of photos made by the third-generation iPad.

Later on Tuesday, a group of photos supposedly taken by the new iPad were posted to the website's forums. It's clear from the images that the new iPad camera is not as good as the 8-megapixel camera on the iPhone 4S, but, when compared to the iPad 2, which had a less-than-1-megapixel resolution, it's a definite step up.

First Unboxing Video of the New iPad



Tinhte.vn has posted the first unboxing video of the new LTE iPad.

IPad feeling holding the 3rd generation is great, still very solid machine like the iPad 2 but is somewhat heavier and thicker than a bit. Really do not know if it's difficult for you to feel very small changes. Biggest difference is the design on the back of your camera slightly larger than the iPad 2 due to large sensor and lens structure also changed. In general, third-generation iPad would make those who want a radical change in design is unsatisfactory but it is still very beautiful at this time.

ipadhereo

Citing sources from Apple's upstream supply chain, DigiTimes reports that Apple will launch a 7.85-inch iPad to compete with smaller tablet models like the Amazon Kindle Fire or Samsung Galaxy Tab. Such tablet will adopt a "slim bezel display," according to a new report.

"Although the 7.85-inch iPads may not adopt Retina displays as in the recently released new iPads, the 7.85-inch model is likely to use IPS/FFS panels from LG Display and probably AU Optronics (AUO)," the report said.

New iPhoto and iMovie apps can be manually copied to the original iPad



iPhotoiPad.1

Apple doesn't support its new iPhoto app, as well as iMovie, on the original iPad. The reason is obvious - the original iPad doesn’t have a camera. But the apps can be installed manually using Apple's iPhone Configuration Utility. iPhoto and iMovie seem to work well enough on the original iPad, although it lacks speed of the iPad 2 and memory of the newest iPad.

To install iMovie and iPhoto to the original iPad you need:

1. to install Apple's free iPhone Configuration Utility, available at http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/enterprise/

2. to buy the apps in iTunes, they'll be within your Music folder under iTunes/iTunes Media/Mobile Applications.

Apple to reportedly double 'iPad 3' RAM to 1GB



ipad3ram

A hacker and iPhone jailbreaker known as "Chronic" suggests that Apple will increase the RAM in its upcoming iPad model. Leaked debug photos purportedly from Apple's third-generation iPad show that the device will sport 1GB of RAM, double the amount of its predecessor iPad 2 that carries 512MB of RAM, the same amount as the iPhone 4.

Leaked debug photos allegedly of Apple's next iPad that surfaced last month showed a line of code that read "vm_page_bootstrap: 244276 free pages and 8396 wired pages." By multiplying the number of free pages by the size of a page (4,096 bytes), the developer deduced that the device would have 1GB of RAM.
