It appears that the upcoming iPad 3 from the Apple is not only about to getting a Retina Display update to the iPad series, instead it is going to be carrying some notable features to the device. iPad 3 is heavily rumored to be getting a LTE chipsets, as the many main stream publishers had just reported about the upcoming 4G LTE networking on the iPad 3, and while following the reports of main publishers The Verge has also reported citing with their reliable sources that Apple is about to ship iPad 3 in many variants, as the device is coming exclusively for both AT&T and Verizon’s network, and in addition to these both variants there would be another variant of iPad 3.
The Verge sources has reported that Apple is preparing a third variant of iPad 3 for the public launch, and the third variant is about to get a super power of being compatible with international 4G LTE baseband supported carrier’s, and to be power 3G baseband for those carriers who have not yet updated their systems to the latest 4G LTE technology. It is reported that the third variant of iPad 3 will carry 3G networking support on both CDMA and GSM basebands like the dual baseband system found in the iPhone 4S. In addition to this report, their sources also claimed that the upcoming iPad 3 is not to be getting a quad-core A6 processor, instead it will get the earlier found A5X processor, as the Apple is planned to save A6 for iPhone 5.
There have been rumors flying that the iPad 3 would be LTE capable, and we’re told that it will definitely be announced for both the Verizon and AT&T networks tomorrow. To be clear, that would mean two distinct, separate versions of the LTE tablet (one for each network). In addition, there’s a third international model which does double duty on 3G; a CDMA / GSM model using a similar radio chipset to the iPhone 4S (a Qualcomm Gobi chip). That’s a little odd considering LTE chipsets from Qualcomm can be utilized on those same bands, but there may be reasons (cost for instance) that Apple would want to separate the hardware.
iPad 3 is reported to get a A5X dual-core processor, the same processor as the iPad 2 has but the new A5X will have more GPU memory than the older A5 dual-core processor. The Editor over The Verge has also claimed that the upcoming device will also carry more RAM memory than the older generation device, may be Apple is going to get it a 1 GB RAM.
