The new Ipad is official!

Tim Cook CEO of Apple unveiling Ipad 3, first time without Steve Jobs!

The new ipad was announced yesterday, and like expected it features a retina display. With 2048 x 1536 resolution its probably the best tablet pc screen out there. And on 9.7″ that equals 3.1 million pixels at 264ppi.

Also it has the new A5X processor wich has basically the same specs as the tegra 3, but apple still promises it will perform up to 4x faster than the Tegra 3!

It also has a new camera with 5MP and a backside illuminated sensor. Also you can film in 1080P.

Also you will be able to push a button on the keyboard and dictate what you want to write, kinda like in Android.

The new iPad also has 21Mbps HSPA+, but it also has an LTE radio capable of pulling down 73Mbps on both Verizon and AT&T here in the US. Outside of the states Rogers, Bell and Telus will also be scoring 4G flavors of the iOS tablet. Amazingly enough, even with an LTE antenna on board, Apple is still claiming to get 10 hours of battery life. That’s probably partially do to the slightly increased weight of 1.4lbs, though the 9.4mm thickness is not  to shabby. I must say this was better than expected even though it dosen’t feature anything exiting, it seems like a damn good tablet!

The new iPad will be available March 16th, starting at $499 for the 16GB WiFi model and scaling up to $829 for the 64GB version with 4G. So, on the price front, nothing has changed. Pre-orders start today in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia, and the rest of the world will (probably) follow on March 23’d. (more…)

Quad core LG Android Phone Leaked

The first Tablet with a quad core processor was the Asus Prime, we where all probably happily surprised by its performance. But how about a phone with the same performance? Well this might be the truth soon! According to PocketNow, that’s apparently what LG has up its sleeve with the forthcoming X3. Evidently, the four-core Tegra 3 device will also tote a 1280 x 720 4.7-inch display, 16GB of storage, Ice Cream Sandwich and NFC all in a svelte 9mm will also feature 21Mbps HSPA support coupled with 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. Sp lets just wait and see!

Asus Transformer Prime Teardown

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer prime is a relatively new tablet on the market, mostly known for its ability to “transform” from tablet to netbook with a keyboard dock.  It features 18hours of battery life, which is 8 more hours of fun than you get with an ipad. Also it has a quad core tegra, which certainly makes it the fastest tablet on the market. But Asus has received a lot of critic over the past few weeks mainly due to GPS issues and the fact that the bootloader is locked (aka no custom roms). Apparently the GPS issues are due to the fact that the antenna tries to receive signals through a metal plating, which is impossible. And even though the ipad for example is also covered in metal it has plastic openings for signals to pass through. There has been an update to fix this problem but since its a design flaw it can only be tweaked — not fixed by updates.

Our friends at Chipworks have made an elaborate teardown, so check that out below. Click on an image to enlarge it and there will be a description on every image!

Meanwhile they are still doing some lab work to produce die photos including a backside poly of the Tegra 3 so you can see the full die layout, so keep your eyes open for more!

Motorola Xoom Teardown

I love how minimal these things are getting. When I think back to the multiple layers of boards in old phones I opened up, then look at the few tiny little boards with so few discrete components. Give it some time and we’ll just be looking at one fat SoC wired to a battery, screen and antenna. Could do wonders for customizable & modular designs. But except for my opinion what we see here isn’t any else than I excpected it to bee, you can see the tegra 2 chip as well as the LCD and one pretty big battery.

LG’s new G-Slate tablet with 3D display

This is LG’s new G-Slate wich will have 8.9 inch 3D display, HSPA+ a dual coe tegra chip complete with Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It also has 2mp front facing camera and a rear 3d camera with LED flash. No price has yet been announced, but excpect it to be the same as the motorola Xoom.

The 1GHz Tegra 2 chipset enables 720p HD and 3D content on the tablet, and the ability to output 1080p HD and 3D content to TVs and displays. The rear camera is a five-megapixel stereoscopic 3D shooter capable of recording 3D video in 1080p resolution. It’s also worth noting that all 3D content displayed on the G-slate will require glasses, so it’s not like the Nintendo 3DS. (more…)
