An Apple® iPad 3 that you should not buy

The third generation of iPad i.e. iPad 3 has been launched in more than 90 countries since its introduction on March 16.

It is very surprising that in China, the iPad 2 is still being promoted. The ‘iPad 3’ that is available in China runs on Google Android, features double the storage space of the real iPad 3 and even allows the user to plug in a memory card. The best thing is that it is listed at just US $100. You must be thinking of buying one each for all your family members, but you really should not.

Features of iPad 3

The real iPad 3 comes with Retina display, the new Apple A5X chip with a quad-core GPU, full HD 1080p video recording camera with 5MP, voice dictation, and a battery backup of up to 720 hours in standby mode and in talk time up to 9 hours. There is no card slot available and it comes with 16 GB, 32 Gb, or 64 GB of storage.

To avoid getting into legal trouble, Apple in Australia and in other countries was launched after dropping the branding of the iPad 3 as 4G capable and replacing it with the term ‘Wi-Fi + Cellular’. The change was made after complaints were filed by consumers from Australia and UK claiming that the Wi-Fi + 4G feature of iPad 3 does not work.

Moosejaw® X-ray App — see through the clothes

The app is gaining popularity, giving an unprecedented boost to overall sales

Ever coveted having the X-ray vision that the Superman uses to peek through walls or to admire her love interest Lois Lane, furtively? If your answer is a yes, Moosejaw X-Ray app is something you would need to make your wish come true, at least to some extent.

Moosejaw, the online retailer of outdoor outfits and various sports gear, utilized the concept of augmented reality (AR) to develop the see-through app for iPad, iPhone and the Android handsets. The prime purpose behind developing the app, however, is not to let you fancy in a real way, but to let you see what the models in Moosejaw Winter Catalog wear underneath their clothes. Although a marketing objective, it is interesting enough to let you give a try. Even if you do not have the print version of the catalog, you can still make use of this app by using it on the online catalog of the same collection.

The free app uses the camera of your smartphone or tablet to create a simulated and augmented perception of an image. Just point the camera on any male or female model in the catalog and you would instantly be looking onto his or her underclothing. You can simply call it fun-shopping, if nothing else.

Even the men’s magazine Esquire and the coffeehouse chain Starbucks have used the AR concept to boost their promotions. However, Moosejaw seems to have come on the top of all with a 37 percent rise observed in its overall sales. According to an analysis from the Detroit-based Marxent Labs, the app registered around 1 million Tweets, almost 160,000 video views, and a total of 75,000 downloads in just five weeks.

“Our goal at Moosejaw is to always create a unique and notable customer experience. Something that everyone who shops with us will want to tell ten friends about. The X-Ray catalog and X-Ray App are designed to create an incredibly cool, interactive and fun experience that breaks the barrier between our print and digital brand. It’s also very much about seeing people in their underwear, something we’re constantly prioritizing at Moosejaw,” said Gary Wohlfeill, creative director, Moosejaw.

Visit the official Moosejaw website to download the Moosejaw X-Ray app.

Production of iPad® 3 QXGA Retina Display in Progress

Are you amazed with the features of Apple iPad 2? Are you planning to buy one for yourself? Hang on! If you are capable enough to hold your craving for the iPad for few more months, then you may be able to get a new iPad 3 in your hand/pocket. Yes! it’s absolutely true. If rumors are to be believed, then Apple is going to launch iPad 3 early next year.

DisplaySearch analyst, Richard Shim says that production for the upcoming iPad 3 QXGA Retina Display is in progress already. Sharp, Samsung, and LGD are the three prime suppliers that are sourced by Apple to produce the QXGA displays, Shim mentioned. He also added, “I would imagine there would be concerns about [adequate] supply given the resolution of the display but you’ve got three different suppliers at this point. They should have enough to launch the product.”

Rumor has it that, the upcoming iPad will boast a 10-inch screen with a 2048×1536 display resolution- double than that of iPad and iPad 2. Also, the display of iPad 3 is not an active-matrix organic light-emitting diode display; it uses in-plane switching technology similar to the latest Apple products. Definitely, display is the main attraction of the next-generation iPad. It is expected to be launched by 2012.

“It takes a couple of weeks for the production to go to the ODMs (the manufacturers). Then the manufacturer puts them in the housing. Then, that goes off to shipment. We could start seeing finished iPad 3 produced in December. And then being ready to be shipped in January. With volumes gearing up in February and March”, Richard said.

Also, it is believed that the iPad3 will have a state-of-the-art, quad-core ARM-based processor.

Google™ Revs Up Search App for iPad®

Google has taken an initiative that is sure to make all iPad lovers gleeful. It has added some extremely useful features to its free Search App for the iPad, thereby making searching on the Internet a lot easier and less time-consuming.

The latest version of Google’s free Search App for the iPad was recently made public. iPad users, congratulations! Your favorite device will now search faster and with more accuracy. What’s more, the free app comes with a new interface, flitting between webpages is a breeze, and a Siri-like voice search makes for the most exciting addition.

Google Instant and Instant Preview are the other two prominent features of this new Search App. While the latter gives you the liberty to have a cursory glance at the different websites without leaving the search page, the former would make a website appear as soon as you type its name.

“You’ll notice that searching is faster and more interactive from your first keystroke,” said Daniel Fish, software engineer for the Google Search app, on the Google Mobile Blog.

Receiving prompts on the desktop for new e-mails will really be déjà vu. Moreover, you just have to click the Applications icon on the search page in order to juggle between your favorite Google Apps. Keeping in mind users’ recent enchantment with Siri, the app provides a similar option wherein you can search by simply speaking the words aloud instead of typing them. One just hopes that the effectiveness of Google Voice Search matches that of Siri.
