Features to expect in iPad 3

Culture
The iPad. It's still number one in tablets but way down from the 90% market share once enjoyed. Clearly, Apple is not going to rule the tablet market like it did the MP3 player did. But what does it do to at least keep iPad at number one? I'm Brian Cooley with the top 5 things to expect in iPad 3. Number five, -er. Thinner, faster, longer. Sounds like the $6 million man's resume for a porn movie but I'm referring to thinner size, faster CPU and longer battery life. Incremental improvements on most or all of these count that's virtually a given. Number four is Siri, the world's best known digital parlor trick. Aye. It will finally come to the iPad partly because that will now have the hotter CPU I just mentioned and that's an important part of being able to get Siri to understand you and do her voodoo thing. I don't understand. Now Siri has huge halo value to Apple that real set them apart kind of technology though it's not that different from the voice command tech found on Android and In-Car. Number three is a better camera. Correction, a decent camera. I've always been shocked how bad the camera is on the iPad 2 especially since the one in the iPhone 4S is so good. If you're gonna ask folks to hold up an iPad as a camera and look that stupid, they better get a good photo out of it. Number two is a better display. Now the iPad 2 is currently 10.24 by 7.68 resolution and a 4.3 kinda square-ish aspect ratio. Both are kind of pedestrian by modern standard. So look for the resolution to climb to full HD or a thousand 80 or more lines measured vertically but still remaining at a 4, 3 aspect ratio. You see, Apple has always believed the widescreen 16, 9 display while good for movie viewing is weird for reading or browsing. Plus it would raise hell to all those iPad apps already written for 4, 3 ratio. Before I take you to the number one things to look for in iPad 3, here's a tantalizing rumor that doesn't take the list. A smaller iPad. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Apple is shopping for a supplier of 8-inch LCD screen. But that's either for one really big iPhone or a really small iMac or one very tasty Kindle killer. But there's no indication such an iPad will arrive anywhere near the March 2012 date we're looking for for iPad 3. The number one thing I'm looking for in iPad 3 virtually a lock is 4G. Introducing a mobile wireless device today without 4G is like offering one with a small screen. Well, that describes the iPhone 4S and it seems to be spelling okay. But anyway, 4G is the kind of technology the kind of technology that almost makes more sense on a tablet than a phone since the tablet begs for more high res fuil screen data like streaming video. So consider this a virtual certainty. But of course, a wi-fi only version will also still be available. For more top 5 like this, go to top5.cnet.com. I'm Brian Cooley. Thanks for watching
