The iPad 3: Pending March 7th Inauguration

By Daniel Brecht, Contributing Writer

Apple (News - Alert) Inc., an American multinational corporation that designs and sells computer tablets and other products, will be releasing its third-generation tablet, the iPad 3, on Wednesday, March 7, 2012, says InMobi, an independent mobile advertising network, in a press release on their custom iPad-focused study.

The iPad3, Apple’s next tablet, is on its way out into the market. This may come as a surprise to some users since Apple, Inc. had not even mentioned it on its own website; Apple has not provided insider information about the tablet’s design, features or selling date. InMobi’s study, it forecasts when the iPad 3 will be released, and it does not leave out what they believe will happen to the new Apple tablet: The “InMobi Study Reveals Nearly 30 Percent of Mobile Web Users Intend to Purchase iPad 3.”

Tablets have yet to replace the desktop PC or do everything a laptop can do, but they are definitely conquering a large share of the market. They are impressive devices and in-demand because they provide the ideal platform for the delivery and dissemination of Mobile Business Intelligence.

These days, there are a lot more computer tablet choices; it has become iPad vs. the Rest. For some tablet users, the iPad is the best option, but for others the optimal tablets available on the market are Android (News - Alert) tablets.

IPad 3 is rumored to have the same price point the iPad 2 had was when first released, costing roughly $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model. As with the iPad 2, the iPad 3 will also offer the 32 and 64GB Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi plus 3G options. When comparing the third iPad to previous generation models, the latest version is sure to have many important enhancements; it will be essentially tweaked and updated, and its software improved. The iPad 3 should also have the same look (still featuring the 9.7″ multi-contact LED screen that provides a high-resolution display), touch and feel of the iPad 2 but with a slight difference in its measurements, with the iPad 3 having a slightly thicker casing in order to contain a more powerful camera and higher resolution screen. Other things to expect in the iPad 3 are key spec differences; it should, in fact, be have a more powerful processor than the dual-core processor found in the iPad 2.

Thanks to the iPad, Apple's highly-successful tablet, the company has remained in fierce competition with Google (News - Alert) Android. Up to this point, many mobile web users have chosen the iPad over most other tablets, but according to the InMobi study, “iPad 3 and the Mobile Market,” there is likely to be a lot of competition in the tablet market, especially between the major platforms, Android and iOS, this year, although “one-third of respondents are planning to buy the iPad 3.” Whether or not Apple’s third-generation iPad will meet or better the forecast made in InMobi’s study remains to be seen. Even though InMobi’s press release appears as a subject of controversy, some mobile web users still see the iPad as today's most successful tablet.

Those that do prefer the Apple iPad over other tablets and are considering on buying one should also be on the lookout for great deal offers for the older generation iPads at the Apple Store. However, if iPad3 is the must-have device, then the wait is almost over.
