iPad News: The countdown to iPad 3 release has started
So, really what is it that excites us about the iPad? That it was the first popular tablet ever? Or that in two years, no tablet has even come close to it? Or the fact that it might come with a retina-display that is unprecedented for any tablet? We would bet on all three for the iPad 3.
Either it is a clever bluff, or Apple has started leaking in places it doesn’t know. This one debunks rumors of a fatter iPad. While the whole thing is only about assembling hardware, the folks out there believe that iPad 3 would boast of Siri functionality which is the part we found believable.
Dual backlights in iPad 3: Digitimes has reported some of the specs of the iPad. They say that besides a 2048 x 1536 (264ppi) full HD 9.7-inch QXGA retina display, the backlight module of the iPad 3 would boast of two LED bars.
‘Samsung’ says iPad Mini with 7-inch display is in the works: While an iPad 3 might be launched this week only, people are already setting sights on its supposed sibling – the iPad Mini.

We hope it does, after all who wouldn’t want to lay hands on affordable Apple merchandize? Samsung, seriously?
