If anyone were hoping that the innovation and drive to be the best would diminish at the Apple Corporation, or that the quest for perfection would cease to exist and reduce itself to the status quo of waiting and copying what everybody else is doing in the digital world, or even thought that the Apple company’s ability to create and invent continuous high performance devices that would outdistance their competitors had ended with the departure of its founder, found out on March 7, 2012 that they had been living in a world of make-believe. Reality hit everyone with the unveiling of the iPad 3, and the explosion that blasted out was loud and clear and could be heard all around the world. Apple has done it again!
Not that Apple ever gave anyone the impression that they were lost or wringing their hands for new ideas after the sad departure of its founder, but it was generally assumed, in my opinion, by many of Apple’s competitors that they now had time to catch up and breathe and set their own distinguishable mark in this highly competitive field. Some of them probably saw themselves sitting in the front seat on the number one spot, taking over the number one position as the best tablet PC ever–that is until the presentation on March 7, 2012, when Apple threw many of them into a frenzy and sent many research and development people from the different companies back to the drawing board to begin again.
With the introduction of the iPad 3, Apple has shown us again, who is the King on the road among tablet PCs in this Post PC era. The iPad 3 with its HD 1080p resolution, which is even better than the HD on your television, with its image stabilization and its voice dictation, is more than enough to astonish any consumer.
However, Apple did not satisfy themselves with marginal development. No, they stepped out and put a power punch behind the iPad 3 that will take its competitors a little time to recover from. It was their knock out punch as they presented the iPad 3 with its Retina Display, and threw us into the future with its next generation wireless 4G with DC-HSDPA , LTE, and HSPA+, and let us not forget to include the fact that they kept the 3 G, so that is also 3G compatible all over the world.
The Apple family of geniuses then crowned the moment with its new A5X chip––the new quad-core powerhouse. One can only say, “Wow!”
The iPad 3 goes on sale on 16 March in several major countries. A week later, there will be a roll out to other major countries. So please do not panic, there will be enough iPad 3’s for everyone.
I am personally looking forward to its release. Having already invested in the first generation iPad, I hesitated to invest in the iPad 2, because I had the feeling that the iPad 3 was going to be a bomber, which it was. The blast was felt everywhere.
As they say in the neighborhood that I grew up in, “they done done it again!” It is not the best English in the world, because it is slang, but very appropriate for the presentation event of the iPad 3 held on March 7,2012, “Apple done done it again!”
So, Apple, thanks for setting the record straight, when it comes to Post PC Era devices you are simply the best!
