Just a while ago, we posted about the unmentioned things in the launch of new iPad (expected to be called the iPad 3. People are going nuts to buy the new iPad but the online stock has already sold out due to the high demand for Apple’s latest tablet. The features include Retina Display, iSight camera, dual-core A5X processor and 4G LTE. Verizon has made it official that it will bring 4G hotspot to the new iPad while we are still to hear from AT&T who hasn’t made anything official.
Anyways, let’s continue with part 2 of unmentioned things:
Greater space required for apps: The apps compatible with the Retina Display require more storage space, twice as much possibly, although iBooks actually reduced in size after being revised for the support of the new iPad. The entry-level iPad may fill up quickly, and why Apple didn’t start with 32 GB is unclear because the flash memory has gotten cheaper. The 16 GB model users may have to delete apps to get new ones.
App fragmentation: The Retina Display apps will create problems for the users of iPad 2. As new apps released for the third-generation iPad will not work on the iPad 2. Apart from that, the apps on the iPad 2 will take a long time to be updated to be compatible on the Retina-based new iPad.
A poor thought for photography: Do you seriously think the device as wide as the new iPad would be comfortable for the professionals? Not in my book! Apple is pitching the new iPad as a photographer’s companion but that is unlikely to be true. Adding to that, there’s no easy way to copy photos from a “real camera”. So Apple’s $29 Camera Connection Kit is likely to become a popular accessory for the new iPad.
