MacBreak Weekly 288:

Invitations start arriving for the Apple Event next week, and much more...




Apple Event on March 7

  • JS: If Apple is following the pattern, then an iPad 3 would be available around March 17.
  • LL: The only thing the invitation tells us is that it most likely will have a Retina display.
    • Another rumor is that it would be $80 more… (AI: yes, some Chinese blog said that)
  • AL: Do we think that it's going to be $399 or $299.
  • AI: If Apple is ever going cheaper than they would probably only go down to $399 or maye $349.
    • Also, if they drop the price they will not be able to raise it ever again.
  • AL: On of the reasons why we might see a size increase is because of storage requirements.
    • We might see a 128 GB iPad.
  • AI: The inpact of a Retina display would already be noticable on apps like iBooks and the Kindle app.
  • LL: Could they make Retina displays across the boards, incl. laptops, cinema display, etc.
