Fourth-gen iPad orders pushed back one week

By Christian Zibreg on Oct 30, 2012

Deliveries of orders of the fourth-generation iPad with Retina display have been postponed until one week on the online Apple store. This comes just after shipments of the new iPad mini were delayed two weeks following its arrival to stores last week. Both devices became available for pre-order four days ago. 72 hours later, the initial stock of the 16GB iPad mini was sold out. First, the more popular black model was gone and was quickly followed by iPad mini shortages across the board. Both tablets were introduced at Apple’s October 23 media eventRead More

 

iPad 4th generation benchmark shows 1GB of RAM, 1.4Ghz CPU, blows away predecessors

By Jeff Benjamin on Oct 30, 2012

We think it’s safe to say that the upcoming iPad 4th generation release will be a beast of a machine. In fact, the 4th generation iPad more than doubles the overall Geekbench benchmark score of the iPad 2. It also more than doubles the score of the incumbent iPad 3.

Whereas many complained about the iPad 3’s relative lack of processing power when compared to the iPad 2 (in some cases, the iPad 2 outperformed the New iPad due to the strain placed on it by the Retina Display), you will not have that problem with the latest iPad iteration.

As Primate Labs points out, some of the first Geekbench scores are beginning to make themselves available online, and it paints a telling picture about the horsepower inside the iPad 4’s inconspicuous casing… Read More

 

iPad vs Surface boot speed test

By Jeff Benjamin on Oct 27, 2012

Just a few minutes ago, I pitted the newly released Microsoft Surface against the 3rd generation iPad with Retina Display. Keep in mind that neither tablet is a slouch when it comes to specs, and that this isn’t exactly a scientific test. Still, some of you might be surprised as to which tablet came out on top in a cold boot speed test.

I won’t spoil the results, but if you’re interested in seeing it for yourself, head inside and check out our iPad vs Microsoft Surface boot test video… Read More

By Cody Lee on Oct 23, 2012

You have to feel bad for anyone who unknowingly purchased a third generation iPad within the last month (assuming they can’t return it). Because after only 30 days, that tablet has become obsolete.

The slate is being phased out by its younger, cooler, but same-sized sibling that is the fourth-generation iPad. Apple announced the new tablet at its media event this morning, alongside the also-new iPad miniRead More

Claimed photo of retooled iPad with Lightning connector

By Cody Lee on Oct 21, 2012

The rumor that Apple was looking to release a tweaked version of its third generation iPad this fall popped up back in June of this year. And at the time, it seemed crazy. Why would Apple refresh a 6 month-old product?

But over the past 4 months, the story has really started picking up momentum, as several reports have pointed to Apple unveiling the retooled iPad at its iPad mini event next week. Then today, this picture surfaced… Read More
