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.

New iPad to be Called 'iPad HD' and Not 'iPad 3'



ipad_3_event_invite

Citing inside information from a developer who has previously provided "reliable information" on upcoming Apple products, CNET claims that this time Apple would step away from its usual numerical naming and give the third-generation iPad the moniker 'iPad HD' to highlight the most prominent and talked-about feature of the upcoming tablet: a high resolution "Retina Display" that has reportedly been pictured and even put under the lens of a microscope in hopes of confirming a higher pixel count than existing iPad models.

VentureBeat also report that Apple will depart from the traditional scheme of naming and use the "HD" title as a proof that the tablet will not ship with a new A6 processor but will instead be equipped with a modified A5 chip.

Apple Now Selling Brazilian-Made iPhone 4



8gb_iphone_4_brazil_box

Apple’s efforts to diversify iPhone and iPad manufacturing locations and make the devices more affordable in the world's fifth most populous country by eliminating high import taxes has resulted in moving production into Brazil where Foxconn built its factory. The factory has already begun manufacturing the iPhone and Apple has indeed begun selling the Brazilian-made 8 GB iPhone 4 through its online store in that country.

The iPhone 4S and 8 GB iPhone 4 debuted in Brazil in mid-December, but early models were manufactured in China and carried very high pricing with the iPhone 4S starting at the equivalent of over $1400. With exchange rate fluctuations that figure is now over $1500, while the cheaper 8 GB iPhone 4 still comes in at a hefty $1050. The unlocked iPhone 4 is priced at $549 in the United States.

iPad 3 with More Tapered Edge and an 8 Megapixel Back Camera



ipad 3 camera

Apple Daily claims to have received the photo above that shows what is claimed to be an overview shot of the new iPad 3 back enclosure (top of image) as well as a comparison shot between the original iPad, the iPad 2 and the New iPad (inset).

The shot reveals the familiar form-factor but the lightning that looks much better in the shot seems to have undergone significant changes. The iPad 3 enclosure seems to have also a more gradual taper to the edges than the iPad 2. As a result of this longer taper, the iPad 3's camera rests on the taper itself.

The absolute positioning of the camera doesn't seem that far off from the iPad 2, but the lens does appear larger. According to NextMedia, the new iPad 3 camera will see a significant upgrade to 8 megapixels. The current iPad 2 back camera is 1 megapixel in resolution.

Siri itself confirms Japanese support coming soon to Apple's iPhone 4S



siri

Watchful iPhone 4S users noticed on Tuesday that Siri is now claiming to speak Japanese. Apple's Siri virtual assistant for the iPhone 4S claims it can already speak Japanese, despite the fact that the language is not yet enabled in the feature's settings.

When asked what languages it can speak, Siri responds, "I speak Japanese, English, German and French. I'm studying some new languages, too."

It then adds, "You can change the language I'm using…just go to Siri settings." However, the settings pane for the feature shows only English (with separate selections for Australia, United Kingdom and United States), French and German, with no way to select Japanese.
