Jeremy Horwits, the Editor-in-Chief of iLounge, claims to have had a hands-on experience with next-generation iPad a.k.a the iPad 3 at CES 2012 (via MacTrast). Even though he’s apparently willing to share all the juicy details, he didn’t see the screen of the device, which, considering that many are expecting Apple to include a Retina display in the iPad 3, would likely have been quite the highlight.
Horwits describes what he believes was the iPad 3:
“Yesterday, one day ahead of the 2012 CES, I saw what’s supposedly the next-generation iPad. I’d show you a picture, but there’s honestly nothing to be seen. Think iPhone 4 to iPhone 4S: this device so resembles the iPad 2 that differences are only obvious when they’re placed next to each other. From the back, you could walk past this new iPad on display and have no idea that anything had changed.
The new iPad’s body is so slightly thicker than the iPad 2 that the change is unnoticeable on first inspection; a roughly 1mm increase will barely be perceptible to users. On the rear, the camera in the upper left corner has become bigger, noticeably so when placed alongside the iPad 2, but not so huge that anyone would think they were different at a distance.
All I can tell you is that every company I’ve asked about the next iPad seems to think what I’ve told you above is correct”.
Last year, iLounge showed off near-final pictures of the iPad 2 at CES which looked incredibly similar to the version that was released, right down to the curves and proportions. So, did Horwitz really see the iPad 3? Tell us what you think!
