So the rumour mill starts again. No sooner have I written to Santa in Lapland for an upgrade to an iPad 2, the word on the street is that the iPad 3 is coming. And its coming with a new Thunderbolt port, hi-res display, a faster processor and the lovely Siri.
With the launch of the ipad 3, Apple are more than likely to maintain and increase their lead in the tablet market, leaving Samsung and struggling Blackberry far behind. This is especially so because according to Forbes, over 40% of smartphone owners with a Blackberry, Android or a Windows 7 smartphone, prefer the iPad.
Expectations are that the iPad 3 will appear before the Chinese New Year. After all 2012 is going to the Year of the Dragon which will be marked by excitement, unpredictability, exhilaration and intensity. A fitting launch year. And no doubt Apple will keep us guessing and twittering to the wire and will have a few surprises up their sleeve for us.
