Rumours are spreading about Apple's next Tablet
Apple's recent alleged investment in the ultra thin IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) displays, powered by Sharp gives way for a prediction that Apple might be using this new technology in its upcoming iOS devices- iPhones and iPads. IGZO display technology is exceptionally thin and tough. It is far better than Apple's Retina display in terms of its screen density. IGZO display is expected to have around 330 ppi. Apple's iPad 4 could achieve only 264 ppi.
Another charming feature of the IGZO technology is its lesser power consumption. Keeping in mind the ludicrously big batteries of Apple iPad 3 and 4, no one can neglect the chance of getting a lengthy battery life from not that much huge a battery. If you wanna charge your iPad faster, definitely IGZO is the better choice.
The thinner version of iPad will be possible by changing the LED back lighting system of the current iPad 4. Instead of two light bars, the iPad 5 will be having only one, as per the reports. Experts suggest that the assumed iPad 5 will resemble iPad Mini in its full aluminium enclosure to support lightness, thinner side bezels and a diamond cut chamfer finish.
Some analysts believe that Apple will pack “HF DITO” i.e.,GF2 touch screen technology into the assumed iPad 5. GF2 technology is already used in Apple's iPad Mini, which contributed in making it 23% thinner and 53% lighter than its full size iPad version.
Regarding the processor, reports hint that Apple might bring in an improved A6X processor system-on-a-chip, a modification of that of iPad 4.
The releasing date regarding expected 9.7 inch, fifth generation iPad arouses much disputes. When some analysts say that it will be launched within next two months, others say that it might not be released until the third quarter of this year.
Apple had sold nearly 14 million iPad units in 2012. They are now getting ready with their new offspring of iPhone and iPad, and thus to blow the market once again like a typhoon.
