Demand for the new iPad has been “off the charts”

Like any new product Apple releases, the new iPad has been seeing a tremendous amount of pre-orders. We already noted that the new iPad has already sold out across all stores, and the third-generation Apple TV’s shipping time has been pushed back 2 weeks.

Today, Apple told USA Today that demand for the new iPad has been “off the charts”:

“Customer response to the new iPad has been off the charts and the quantity available for pre-order has been purchased. Customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date.”

While shipping time has been pushed back in Apple’s online store, there will be a limited number of iPads available in Apple’s retail stores Friday, March 16th. These products will be available on a first come, first served basis — so you’re going to want to get there quick.

So why is demand for the new iPad so high? The specs for Apple’s latest tablet are amazing: a Retina displaylarger battery5-megapixel camera with upgraded sensors, 1GB of RAM, and dual-core A5X processor with quad-core graphics.

Were you quick to get your pre-order in?

iPad 3 Processor Chip

Apple has released the iPhone 4 and the original iPad with the A4 single core processor chip. Later, they introduced the A5 Dual core processor chip on both the iPad 2 and the recently released iPhone 4S. So, Everybody was expecting the iPad 3 to be having the rumored A6 Quad core chip. However, The photo above [if true] shows that Apple won’t release the iPad 3 with the A6 chip but with A5X chip which we don’t know if it’s Dual or Quad core chip. But this news comes in line with a previous rumor which claimed that the iPad 3 won’t have a Quad core processor chip.

The A5X chip is step-wise upgrade to the A5 which comes in line with the processor part numbers which was revealed by BGR. The A4 was referred as S5L8930X, the A5 as the S5L8940X and the iPad 3 processor as S5L8945X.

The A5X Chip has a date code of “1146″ indicating that it was manufactured in the 46th week of 2011.

iPad 3 Logic Board

You can also see several other things on this “Leaked” logic board such as a pair of 16 GB flash memory chips from Hynix and a rectangular Apple-branded chip which seems to correspond to power management chips found in previous iPad teardowns, But this one has a higher part number which means it’s an upgraded part.

The iPad 3 is expected to be announced on March 7 with an amazing Ultra-Resolution Retina Display and maybe LTE capabilities.

iPad owners older and richer than other tablet owners, says study

Owners of Apple’s popular tablet tend to be older and make more money than those who own rival tablets, claims an NPD study.

Own an iPad? Then there’s a good chance you’re old and rich, uh, well, at least older and richer than other tablet owners.

A new study from the folks at NPD Group claims that iPad owners tend to be older and make more money than their non-iPad peers. Among the people polled who bring home an income of $100,000 or more, 40 percent were iPad owners while only 26 percent owned other types of tablets.

Those buying tablets toward the end of 2011 were 50 percent more likely to have an income less than $45,000, while 33 percent were more likely to be under 34 years old.

Whatever their ages and incomes, tablet buyers still see the need for the old-fashioned PC.

Only 10 percent of the tablet owners surveyed said they don’t need a laptop. Among those who don’t already own a tablet, 18 percent said they plan to buy one this year, but 26 percent are looking to pick up a laptop.

"Even as consumers increasingly use tablets for tasks that were once exclusively done on their PC, they continue to plan new PC purchases," NPD analyst Stephen Baker said in a statement. "Usage is still evolving and most people, being inherently conservative in their device outlook, continue to hedge their bets on their device preference by planning to maintain an array of products to afford them maximum flexibility."

To compile its study, NPD surveyed more than 3,600 tablet owners and 1,114 general consumers in December.

Acer Iconia Tab A510 to hit European retailers this April?

Amidst the madness that was CESAcer quietly snuck its Iconia Tab A510 onto the showroom floor, tucking the tablet into the folds of NVIDIA’s booth. While the company was more than willing to fess up to the slate’s specs — quad-core Tegra 3 processor, skinned Ice Cream Sandwich UX, 1280 x 800 display — little in the way of pricing and availability were revealed. If a report out of Germany is to be believed, however, Europeans (sorry, statesiders) might very well see the 10.1-incher hit retail as early as this April, with a €500 price tag in tow. That’s all the rumor mill’s wrought for now, folks, but we’ll keep you posted should the news go official at CeBIT 2012.

Gadmei T863 Android tablet offers glasses-free 3D for $199

Gadmei T863 Glasses-Free 3D Tablet

We’re expecting to see some glasses-free 3D tablets at CES this week, but online vendor Brando already has one for sale: the Gadmei T863. The Android tablet packs a 1GHz Cortex A9 processor, 512MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage (there’s also an SDHC card slot), but the standout feature is its 8-inch 1280 x 768 lenticular LCD touchscreen. It allows for glasses-free viewing of 3D content, thanks in part to the tablet’s on-board 3D image processing silicon. The tablet is Wi-Fi only and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but for $199, who’s complaining? It joins the company’s $179 P83 personal media player, which uses the same screen but for a stripped-down, playback-only device. Gadmei’s new tablet is available for order now.

As Millions Of Consumers Unwrapped Kindle Fires Over Christmas, Mobile Ad Impressions Spiked 261 Percent

In November, Mobile ad network Millennial Media reportedthat Amazon’s new tablet devices Kindle Fire, was seeing ad impressions grow at an average daily rate of 19% since itslaunch to the public in the middle of the month. Millennial says it’s not just seeing millions of impressions and the device is on a monthly run rate of hundreds of millions of impressions. But that data was gathered from a few weeks of usage from consumers in November, and as Amazon reported yesterday, December’s holiday season brought record sales for the Kindle Fire, with over 4 million Kindle devices soldin December. The Kindle Fire was the most gifted and wished for product on Amazon this season.

Today, Millennial is releasing data from its ad network showing impressive growth numbers from the Kindle Fire over the holiday weekend. In November, impressions on the Kindle Fire grew an average rate of 19 percent every day. Over this past weekend, Millennial says that as consumers opened and used their new Kindle Fires, ad impressions increased even more. As millions of consumers unwrapped new Kindle Fires, Millennial saw an average daily growth rate of 113 percent.

On December 24, impressions grew 32 percent; and on Christmas day in particular, impressions on the Kindle Fire grew 261 percent. The day after Christmas saw a 46 percent jump in ad impressions.

   

Of course, the Kindle Fire wasn’t the only tablet that saw a spike from the holidays. From December 23 to 26, the iPad had a daily growth rate of 6 percent. The iPad remained the leading tablet overall on Millennial’s platform during this time period, although the massive gain from the Kindle Fire helped to significantly close the gap.

The Kindle Fire’s impression growth on the platform has slightly outpaced that of the iPad when the iPad launched in early 2010. Millennial says that though the Kindle Fire has been introduced into a more mature tablet market than the market which greeted the original iPad, Amazon’s entertainment-focused platform and the lower price point have helped drive this early use by consumers.

Now that the holiday gifting season if over, it should be interesting to see if consumer usage of the Kindle Fire continues to grow at such a rapid pace. For example, the release of a new version of the iPad could effect Kindle Fire growth in 2012.

Apple To Release 7.85-inch Tablet In 2012 [Rumor]

In these days, there is a huge number of rumors we hear it from too many sources, but this maybe possible, a new report from the guys at DigiTimes claims that Apple is working to release a new 7.85 inch tablet in 2012 and also The Taiwanese publication cites the source, saying Apple has already ordered 7.85-inch panels from both LG Display and AU Optronics. 

Some reports says that Apple want to release a new less size tablet than the iPad to be easily to carry and more smartest…
DigiTimes report: 
“Apple is likely to launch a 7.85-inch iPad prior to the fourth quarter of 2012 in addition to a new iPad scheduled to be released at the end of the first quarter, according to sources in the supply chain.”

But really it will be a great idea to make an 8-inch iPad, also if Apple is going to release a smaller tablet that’s mean a cheaper starting price. Like it’s recently done with the iPhone, Apple could be looking to release a smaller, cheaper iPad so it can cover both the top and bottom half of the tablet market to help it stay on top. So what do you think about the 8-inch iPad, it will be a great idea, don’t you think that ?!

Tablet owners cool with buying items through their devices

Tablet owners are quite comfortable buying goods and services through their devices, a trend that’s fueling the growth in mobile shopping, says mobile media firm JiWire.

As tablet ownership has doubled over the past year, a new study from JiWire found that 82 percent of tablet users are OK buying items through their mobile devices (either tablets or smartphones), compared with 76 percent of smartphone users.

Further, tablet owners aren’t afraid to spend big bucks. A full 67 percent of the tablet users are willing to spend $50 or more on a purchase, compared with just 57 percent of smartphone owners and 52 percent of laptop owners. The most popular items and services bought by tablet owners were electronics, retail goods, entertainment, and travel.

Overall, tablet usage has grown by 84 percent since the fourth quarter of 2010, says JiWire. And both tablets and smartphones are surging at the expense of laptops. Since the third quarter, tablet usage rose 20 percent and smartphone use climbed 24 percent, but laptop usage fell by 10 percent.

Breaking it down by age, people under 25 said they were more likely to buy a smartphone and/or a laptop in the next six months, while those between 25 and 44 are more inclined to buy a tablet.

The increasing use of mobile devices is affecting how people shop both online and offline.

Among consumers included in the study, 66 percent said they’d rather buy a $50 item at a store if they’re within five miles of it. But 72 percent would rather make the purchase via their mobile device if they’re more than 20 miles away from the store.

Further, 28 percent said they comparison shop on their mobile device in the store, while 18 percent actually use their device to buy an item even if they’re in the store. Finally, 63 percent of the consumers prefer to shop both in store and online. Only 22 percent would rather shop exclusively in the store.

"The retail experience remains critical," David Staas, senior vice president of marketing at JiWire, said in a statement. "While consumers are increasingly using mobile to research and make purchases, we are seeing that the in-store shopping experience is equally if not more important, even with a tech-savvy audience."

JiWire’s study was based on data collected from 315,000 public Wi-Fi hot spots as well as a survey of more than 2,000 U.S. consumers from July to September 2011.

This Is How Transparent Flexible Devices Will Look

Although we hardly post about another company other than Apple, we wanted to spice it up a bit as there is also a patent war going on between the two giants.So here we are posting about what the fruit company’s rival has next in their plans.Samsung is known for being innovative especially in LCD dispalys. Earlier we have seen different types of Samsung displays such as curved, transparent AMOLED in CES 2011.
 

Now Samsung has come up with a concept video of how these above mentioned displays will bring a change in your daily life and by using these curved transparent diplays how we can interact without our tablets and smartphones.

Now Samsung is planning to come up with flexible display devices in 2012 but it will take a couple of years more for sure and more research needs to be done to make displays as shown in the concept video.
