iPhone 5 is coming – And we are hearing that from a year now. But yet we only see some crafted conceptual designs of iPhone 5. I have collected some designs which are Slimmer and newer to the eye. Lets see if the Real iPhone 5 gets any closer to this.
Apple launched its latest version of the iPad on Wednesday, armed with a Full HD display with 3.1 million pixels and a supercharged new processor.
The device will be available on March 16 and priced from $499-$829 (£399-£659) – the same range as the iPad 2, which the technology giant launched a year ago.
The tablet will be powered by a super fast quad-core A5x chip, putting Apple’s tablet ahead of competitors such as Samsung.
It will also offer a high speed 4G LTE network connection in territories with 4G – in the U.S., it will be available on both the AT&T and Verizon wireless networks.

The weight is going up from 1.33 pounds to 1.44 pounds for the Wi-Fi-only model. The original iPad weighed 1.5 pounds.
Apple also confirmed that the new model will come in a version that can use Verizon Wireless’ and AT&T Inc.’s ‘LTE’ wireless broadband networks.
At last! Apple CEO Tim Cook introduces the new iPad during an Apple event today in San Francisco.
Apple claims the battery lasts 10 hours and the device is just 9.4mm thick.
‘Who will come out with a product that’s more amazing than the iPad 2?’ Apple CEO Tim Cook asked the audience at the San Francisco launch event. ‘Stop wondering – we are’.

Samsung has officially unveiled its seventh Android tablet – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, which is the first to come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from day one.
The Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) will be one of the first tablets available with Ice Cream Sandwich, which has a haltingly beautiful design and tons of new features like facial recognition unlocking that make using Android elegant and fun. The Galaxy Tab 2 will join Samsung’s diverse family of tablets like the Tab 8.9 and 10.1, which compete the best they can against Apple’s iPad, the most popular tablet in the world.
Like the original Galaxy Tab P1000 and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, the Galaxy Tab 2 has a 7 inch display with 1024 x 600 pixels. Measuring 193.7 x 122.4 x 10.5 mm and weighing 344 grams.
One of the big selling points of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will be that it’ll come running Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) straight out of the box come March. The Galaxy Tab 2 we fondled was sometimes laggy to unlock or while booting up the hubs but on the whole, the 1GHz dual-core processor (and 1GB of RAM) coped just fine with Ice Cream Sandwich-flavoured multi-tasking.
Now Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has three easily accessible hubs – Music Hub, Reader Hub and the new Video hub, to launch you into your digital world. The Video hub has 1000 movie and TV titles to rent or buy and we reckon it’ll easily take on similar entertainment offerings from Sammy’s competitors. Plus the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is one of the first tablets to get in on ‘allshare play’, Samsung’s entertainment-sharing set-up.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2’s 3MP rear facing camera takes surprisingly decent snaps with fairly realistic colours, though we should point out that it’s hard to be an exact judge under the unflattering lights of a convention centre. There’s also a VGA snapper on the front that’s good enough for video calls.
Following are the summary of Samsung Galaxy Tab 2’s features:
* TouchWiz / L!ve Panel UX
* HSPA+ 21Mbps (850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 MHz)
* Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct
* Bluetooth v 3.0
* 3.5mm headset jack
* USB 2.0
* Samsung Hub
* Samsung ChatON
* 3MP rear camera
* VGA front-facing camera
* 1GHz dual-core processor
* 1GB (RAM)
* 8 / 16 / 32GB user memory
* microSD (up to 32GB)
* 4,000 mAh battery
According to the latest news, the Apple iPad3 will feature a new, thinner and sleeker design, down nearly 20 percent in size compared to the iPad 2. It will also support full touchscreen HD display with a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536. The iPad 3 will also have a lighter battery life, reducing the weight of the tablet.
Now Apple is aiming to make the competition tougher by sporting an A6 Quad-core Processor in the iPad 3. This would make the iPad 3 as powerful as any high-end desktop.
The iPad 3 will come with the latest iOS 5, which will host the multi-touch gesture technology. However, analyst and tech enthusiasts predict that Apple would introduce OS X Lion for the tablet, since it will be powered by a quad-core processor.
Retina Display (after we’ve seen this function on the iPhone 4 we thought that iPad 2 will also going to have it but there wasn’t any, iPad 3 will probably come up with this improvement. With the Retina Display feature, the screen resolution of the iPad3 will be 2048 x 1536 pixels. However, it is said that the third version of the tablet is delayed due to Retina Display issues, and Apple is expected to ship the tablet in early 2012.
Apple will definitely include the iCloud technology in iPad 3. With iCloud users can store photos, apps, calendars and access songs on iTunes without having them to store in the phone’s memory.
Fingerprint has already been granted patents on this technology, and is working real hard to make the iPad3 fingerprint proof. The touch screen will be coated with oleophobic materials, which will reduce the oil and fingerprints on the screen.
The new tablet will come with LED flash to support the camera. The display comes with a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution display that can enable HD 1080p capability for watching high def movies on its 9.7 inch LCD screen.
The iPad is a line of tablet computers designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc. The iPad 2 was released internationally in 25 other countries on March 25, 2011, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
