3rd Gen iPad Costs ~$310 To Build

Apple is as of late, known for making an insane amount of money due to their high profit margins. Call it good negotiating on Apple’s part in getting good deals on parts and manufacturing, or…whatever else you want. Apple is hitting bank right now. But the new iPad will see them netting a few less dollars this time around. A preliminary inspection of the new iPad’s internal parts by UBM Techinsights puts the build cost (for Apple) at ~$310....

3rd Gen iPad Features A Battery That Is 70% Bigger Than iPad 2′s

The iPad 3 packs a ton of power underneath the hood; LTE (and numerous other cellular radios), dual-core CPU + quad-core graphics and a high resolution Retina display aren’t exactly great things for batteries. And because a tablet as sophisticated as the iPad is essentially useless dead, Apple had to make a few concessions, namely thickness. The new iPad is thicker at 9.4mm compared to the iPad 2′s 8.8mm, but it also packs a 42.5-watt-hour battery — 70%...

The LTE Supporting iPad Is Great For Americans And…No One Else

After following various live blogs and then watching keynote last night, it became very clear that the hype around a “4G iPad” is going to (sadly) be a U.S.-only fad. You see, LTE is a heavily stratified technology. Here in the states none of the four major carriers’ LTE networks will be compatible with one another, meaning any LTE device you buy will have to have support for four separate networks. More disappointing, however, is that on a global scale...

The iPad 3 Rocks! Check It Out… (Recap)

Today is just like any other ordinary Wednesday save for the fact that the all new iPad 3 was announced. But even though the announcement was far from a surprise, and the iPad 3 itself has seen it’s final form more or less revealed, the hype and excitement around today’s event is as high as ever. The iPad 3 Tim opened up the iPad 3 unveiling by citing the iPad’s previous, runaway quarter of 15.4 million units sold (Q4 2011). Compared to actual PCs figures...

It’s been quite a while since Apple released iOS 5 back in the fall of 2011. Since then only a couple minor updates have been released, with each not bringing much more than attempts to fix bugs and rampant battery drain on the new OS. iOS 5.1 meanwhile has been rumored as nearing release for well over month now, though is just now actually getting close. ChronicWire is reporting that the Golden Master of iOS 5.1 (build 9B176) has officially passed internal QA...
