WSJ : iPad 3 with retina display coming 2012

Well this time it's iPad

File this under ” I knew it !”

Wall street journal, the publication which is pretty famous for getting insider information on new Apple products has *confirmed* that Apple is indeed working on the next version of the iPad with a new retina display sporting twice the resolution as the original iPad ( 1024X768 ^2 = 2048X1536 ) The resolution is very high for a ten inch display( a size which Apple will probably stick to )

Quoting WSJ, sources indicate that testing of the iPad 3 may start as early as october and will go on sale early 2012.

The next generation iPad is expected to feature a high resolution display – 2048 by 1536 compared with 1024 by 768 in the iPad 2 – and Apple’s suppliers have already shipped small quantities of components for the sampling of the iPad 3. Suppliers said Apple has placed orders for a 9.7-inch screen device.

Windows Phone market explosion in 2012 ? [Thoughts]

Chinese Fireworks

Recently, after Microsoft unveiled the “Mango” update, which was arguably, a software update, it released a teeny tiny interesting bit of news on the hardware side too. Am talking about the three new OEMs joining Microsoft’s party. They are Acer,Fujitsu, and behold .. ZTE, the fourth largest mobile phones manufacturer in the world !

Yes , once , and still ,majorly an infrastructure manufacturer ( like GSM equipment, routers etc. ), ZTE has joined the Windows phone ecosystem. They are already in the Android ecosystem for some years now and boy, did they make a killing ! Almost all Android phones launched by Indian pseudo-manufacturers were licensed from ZTE, like the overtly famous Micromax Andro based on the ZTE Penguin and the Dell XCD35 which was wildly popular in the U.K by the name of “Orange San Francisco” is nothing but a ZTE Blade. Impressive, no ?
