[AI] Apple kills fall iPad 3 rumors by calling 2011 "Year of iPad 2" - Page 3

post #21 of 31
@ Cretz:

The iPad 2 isn't vastly ahead of the competition spec wise, but their price is too good to pass up. Along with all the apps that are already out there for the iPad I don't see why anyone would get anything but an iPad 2.

Hopefully they put 1gb of RAM in it, but somehow I don't think they did as they are not showing the specs of the RAM. If it's 256mb I'm going to be disappointed.

Exactly. The iPad 2 has similar specs, and Apple priced it right. Add in all the apps that are currently available, and you have a winner.

Does anyone know how much RAM the iPad 2 has? Sort of interesting that Apple didn't come out with a number.

How much RAM does a tablet running a lite OS (iOS, Android 3.0, etc) need? If I remember correctly most iPad apps are around 20MB total.

lol I'm surprised how many people act like they hate Apple (just to prove they're against fanboyism) actually go out and buy an iProduct... World is full of myths... I love my ipad (lol please don't quote and call me a fanboy because I hate Macs) and have used/tried my friend's galaxy tab and I can say the Xoom is just another tablet to pass by until the software itself is mature and ripe(possibly Honeycomb 2.0?)

It should be bumped to 512 MB which in iOS is a vast amount, yes 1 GB would have been incredible but seeing how well the current one does with multitasking and it only has 256 MB.

I did not catch it but the rumor was iPhone 5 and iPad 2 are using the PowerVR SGX543MP for the GPU which is suppose to be like 2x faster then the current GPU in the iPhone 4.

  1. It would never be Apple.
  2. It can't be worse than an Apple device.
Don't know where you got that idea from. In terms of hardware it is pretty much the worst in every respect. There are other threads around with a hardware comparison table in, check it out.

Right now the iPad 2 is right in line with the others when it comes to hardware specifications.

The SGX543 offers 2.5x the performance the SGX535 does, at the same clock speed. It is rumoured it has the SGX543MP2 which would be 5x the performance, but Apple says "up to" 9x graphics performance, so it may be at a higher clock speed than previous, too.

iPad 2: Twice as absorbent than the leading brand.

Apple fanboys: I'll take 3.

My iphone 4 lags sometimes with 512MB of ram. I still get the safari cache reload when I switch tabs.

I really hope the ipad 2 has 768MB or more.
