The new iPad has an enormous clown-car sized battery. Many have speculated the new display is to blame (not too big a leap of faith), but a new study pins down the exact reason for the display’s increaseddraw.
Display blog dot color conducted a series of tests and concluded the new iPad’s Retina Display uses a series of advanced filters to improvereproduction of the new display, which forced Apple to increase the output of the backlight LED’s to maintain a level of brightness on par with previous iPads.
Another day another rumor from an industry insider saying the exact opposite of a rumor from another industry insider the day before.
Today, the rumor from iMore’s source claims Apple is scheduled to release a new 3.5” LTE iPhone in October. This contrary to reports yesterday that Apple was planning to release a larger screened iPhone with a display somewhere in the 4” category as early as this summer. This new rumor differs not only in the release window, and screen size, but also claims Apple is changing the dock connector. The new connections will be a “micro dock.”
And that’s all fine and good… except for how quickly users are nowof blowing past their data caps. According to the Wall Street Journal today, the new iPad is nothing short of a veritable “speed trap.” Just look at the example of Brandon Wells, a young man who acquired his new iPad last Friday and by Saturday night, streaming March Madness games “had burned through his monthly wireless data allotment of two gigabytes.”

Less than one week after Apple launched its third-generation tablet to some three million opening weekend sales, it can’t possibly seem like an inviting time to be a competitor in the tablet marketplace. Fortunately for Microsoft, plenty of time remains for the new iPad to cool off before the software giant unleashes its forthcoming tablets this fall.
According to the rumor mill Wednesday, Microsoft will release its new Windows 8 tablets in September or October. Digitimes says today that Samsung Electronics, Sony, Toshiba, Lenovo, Acer and Asustek will all launch Windows 8 on ARM (WoA) tablet PCs within the next twelve months, with some of those offerings likely to turn up much sooner.
All models of the new iPad are now advertised to ship in one to two weeks from Apple’s U.S. store – an improvement from before when shipping times were listed as two to three weeks.
The shipping times originally slipped to two to three weeks a week ago, five days before the new iPad was set to go on sale. Preorders of the launch-day supply sold out less than two days after the new iPad was announced. The availability of the previous-generation 16 GB iPad 2 remains with an estimated shipping time of one to three business days with the exception of the Verizon 3G model, which seems to be advertised as “in-stock” for more immediate shipment.
