As we all know, the interweb is 87% rumor. Or so I’m told.
And what with the entry-level tablet market taking off with the likes of the Kindle Fire
and Barnes & Noble Nook
leading the charge, it was only a matter of time before speculation began about Apple
reaching out to dominate this market too.
The implication is Apple could release three models in 2012
, for each distinct market segment. Reports, based on info from the Apple supply chain, have speculated that the high-end and middle models will both have an A6 processor
. The higher-end model is expected to have a newer, higher-resolution Retina Display of 2048 x 1536 and an 8-megapixel camera, while the middle-market version enjoy have the same 1024 x 768 screen as the iPad 2 does. The lower end model is speculated as being Wi-Fi
being the optimum word here...
