    Anyone getting an iPad HD?
    (not iPad 3 apparently)

    Source: http://thisismynext.com/2011/07/07/i...-hd-iphone-4s/

    2048 x 1536 pixels resolution - almost double the current pixel display

    Also:
    iPhone 4S - cheaper version
    iPhone 5

    "Why abandon the iPhone 4 design so quickly though? We’ve heard that the device is out of favor at the highest levels of the company, and folks are ready to move on to an entirely new product."

    Count me out on the iPad, but that iPhone 5 looks slick enough to motivate me to upgrade.

      iPad HD will not be for the average user and will cost a bunch more. Focus on this sentence:

      "....will be dubbed the “iPad HD.” The idea behind the product is apparently that it will be a “pro” device aimed at a higher end market — folks who work in video and photo production possibly..."

      iPad 2 is still in scorching hot demand and will not be replaced by the iPad HD.

      Both Apple and AT&T have been reported to be gearing up for an iPhone launch in Sept. We shall see if the rumors about iPhone 5 are true.

        iPhones With 4G Being Tested [REPORT]

        http://mashable.com/2011/08/15/iphone-lte/
        Mashable - iPhones With 4G Being Tested [REPORT]

        At least one U.S. carrier is testing LTE for the iPhone, according to a report.

        Boy Genius Report cites an internal iOS test from an unnamed carrier that includes a property list for LTE. As noted, the inclusion of the code doesn’t mean that the iPhone 5 — or every iPhone 5 — will support LTE; it just means that it’s been tested.

        LTE (Long Term Evolution, a.k.a. 4G) is a big upgrade from 3G service. With LTE, users can enjoy download speeds of 5-12 Mbps and uploads of 2-5 Mbps, which are on par with conventional broadband. That compares with a max of 1.4 Mbps for downloads and 0.8 Mbps for uploads on 3G, the service now available for the iPhone. The iPhone 5 could be unveiled as early as September 8, according to reports.

        AT&T and Verizon — the two U.S. partners for Apple’s iPhone — are deploying LTE throughout their networks, though neither has full coverage across the U.S.

          New Report Claims Pegatron to Ship iPhone 5 Handsets to Apple in September

          http://iphone5release.org/

          (bold added by me)


          New Report Claims Pegatron to Ship iPhone 5 Handsets to Apple in September

          According to a new report released Wednesday by DigiTimes, Pegatron will start shipping the new iPhone 5 handset to Apple in September. According to industry sources quoted in the report, Pegatron will move up to become the secondary original design manufacturer (or ‘ODM’) for the iPhone, with orders totaling 10 million units of Apple’s fifth-generation handset.

          Other sources quoted in the report stated that Pegatron is moving to try to earn more work from Apple. Since Pegatron’s margins on iPhone handsets are “relatively small”, the company has retooled factories and trained up staff to try to earn some of Apple’s iPad and MacBook manufacturing business. The report indicates that Foxconn has worked with Apple to ensure that their relationship is strong and that the orders for Apple’s wildly selling iPhone and iPad models continue to come to Foxconn as the primary manufacturer.

          Just a few weeks ago, DigiTimes released a report claiming that Pegatron had received an order from Apple for up to 15 million units of the iPhone 5. The most recent report reduced that number from 15 to 10 million handsets, which some may recall was the figure claimed by reports back in late January. As Pegatron is a very experienced manufacturing partner and has worked with major volumes in the past, hitting this 10 million mark likely won’t present too much of a challenge.

          As we move closer to the expected launch and release dates for Apple’s next-generation iPhone handset, rumors and speculation abound about when the handset will actually end up in the hands of consumers. This week saw Canadian carrier Telus report that the iPhone 5 will launch in early October, a report backed up by All Things D; this news contradicts reports by China Times and many others that have indicated that Apple intends to release the next iPhone as early as September 6th. A September launch window was also proposed by Mike Abramsky, an analyst with RBC Capital Markets, with Abramsky stating that build data information that he had obtained from some of Apple’s suppliers has indicated a September launch.

          One thing is clear – the launch of the next iPhone is getting close. Another report earlier this week stated that Apple had begun shipping the device to its many carrier partners for final testing. The handsets were shipped to the carriers locked and secured to ensure that no one got so much as a glimpse of what the next iPhone has in store for the many millions of consumers waiting on its release.

          According to Shaw Wu, analyst with Sterne Agee, those waiting for the iPhone 5 could end up getting a “bigger upgrade than expected”.
          Wu claims that the next iPhone will ship with a thinner, lighter design, a larger screen, and the dual-core A5 processor that’s currently found powering the iPad 2. Wu continued that users should expect the iPhone 5 to have the same general form factor as the iPhone 4, but with a thinner bezel and most certainly a fix to the antenna issues that plagued the older handset. An upgraded rear camera is likely as well, taking the camera to 8 megapixels in resolution. What’s not expected is a ‘4G’ LTE radio, which likely won’t be found in an iPhone until the next models are released sometime in 2012.

          As expected, Apple did not comment on any of this week’s news.

            iPad 3 Coming in Early 2012 [REPORT]

            iPad 3 Coming in Early 2012 [REPORT]
            http://mashable.com/2011/08/19/ipad-3-early-2012/


            Apple has reportedly begun trial production on its next-generation iPad tablet device and it’s scheduled to launch in early 2012.

            According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple has begun ordering chips, display panels and other key components for the iPad 3.
            It is reportedly expected to feature a high resolution (2048×1536), 9.7-inch display, up from the iPad 2′s 9.5-inch, 1024×768 display.
            (The report didn’t say anything about the iPad 3′s rumored OLED screen, however.)

            One supplier claimed that Apple has already placed orders to develop 1.5 million iPad 3s in the fourth quarter.

            Apple announced the iPad 2 in March, just 15 months after the launch of the first-generation iPad.
            The accelerated release cycle has helped Apple maintain a dominant share of the tablet market, which Thursday claimed its first victim: the HP TouchPad.

            Apple could not be reached for comment at press time.

                Might be interested in using something like this? as a remote solution instead of going the URC/Harmony route. If I ever get to the remote thingy.

                  I think iPad remotes are very popular now.
                  Considering how expensive some customized remote systems are/were, the iPad is a bargain -- and useful for other functions as well.

                      Some of the non-iPad tablets will survive, but it remains to be seen if any of them will flourish. If the upcoming iPad has a retina display and is priced at current pricing, then game over. Apple is ruthless and may well go to market in that fashion to put the death blow on competitors.

                          Apple's iPhone 5: Report says it will be unveiled Oct. 4

                          http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/tech...-iphone-5.html

                          latimestech LA Times Technology
                          Apple's iPhone 5: Report says it will be unveiled Oct. 4 lat.ms/pjNYKc

                          Apple Inc.'s iPhone 5 could be less than two weeks away.

                          Thirteen days, if you prefer to count it that way. That's around 314 hours for you diehards. (I'm not going to do seconds or milliseconds.)

                          The long-awaited device is going to be unveiled on Oct. 4, the Tuesday after next, if you believe a report this morning from AllThingsD's John Paczkowski, which cites anonymous sources. As the report points out, this event is going to be Apple's the first major release without co-founder Steve Jobs, who has been the face of the company for more than a decade.

                          Jobs, who resigned in August, has introduced every major Apple product for nearly the last 15 years -- the first iMac in 1998, the first iPod in 2001, and all the way up to the iPad 2 earlier this year.

                          Apple hasn't released a new iPhone since June 2010, and many Apple watchers have wondered why the company has taken longer than its usual 11 or 12 months to update the device. Is it political turmoil associated with Jobs' departure? Problems getting the right parts ready for an updated model? Delays involved with building two versions instead of one? Or all of the above?

                          The iPhone 5 will officially arrive on the watch of new Apple chief executive Tim Cook, usually credited for building Apple's broad and well-coordinated global network of parts suppliers and manufacturers. But Cook has the unenviable job of following the stage act of his former boss, the Frank Sinatra of the tech business.
