It has been informed by the DigiTimes that in the March, Apple would be launching its 16GB and 32GB iPad 3 models. It has further been reported that in March, Apple would also be making an announcement about the 8GB iPad 2.
Apple has come up with its new 8GB iPad 2 with the pursuit of throwing a challenge at the Windows 8-based tablet PCs. It is believed that Apple's 8GB iPad 2 would be able to win the hearts of many as the consumers have been seen waiting for the gracious launch of the tablet.
It has been revealed that the gadgets would be launched on the 7th of March, 2012. It has been informed that Apple's iPad 3 would have 9.7-inch Full HD QXGA panel with a resolution of 2048 by 1536 (264dpi). The backlight model of the iPad would have two LED light bars.
The price of the gadgets would throw a tough competition to Amazon's Kindle Fire as the gadget would be placed in segment of Amazon's Kindle Fire. The Chief Marketing Officer, Jeff Trachsel, said, "There wasn't a lot of activity in January, I think because people were keeping their powder dry. But recently we've seen a pretty massive increase, as much as 800% above last month, in [trade-in] quotes for the iPad".
It is believed that the prices of iPads would be high initially but gradually they will decline as the tablet market is already swelled up with upgraded tablets. After one week of the launch of the iPads, the prices are supposed to fall. It would be interesting to see in the month of March as to how many new customers join Apple. Apple is keeping its fingers crossed and is hoping for the best for its new tablets.
