Apple To Launch the new iPad In 21 More Countries…

I have been waiting for this news since March 7 and now finally it is here. Apple has announced that the new iPad will debut in a total of 12 countries this Friday, April 20.

The list of the countries where the new iPad will make a debut is as follows:

Brunei, Croatia, Cyprus, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia, Panama, South Korea, St. Maarten, Uruguay and Venezuela.

In addition to these 12 countries Apple, will release the new iPad exactly a week later in more 9 countries, which are as follows:

Colombia, Estonia, India, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, South Africa and Thailand.

The new iPad will be available starting at a suggested price of USD 499 for the 16gig WiFi model.

The new iPad will also come with the 4G LTE high-speed wireless Internet, but the aforementioned countries would not be able to enjoy these mind-blowing speed as the new iPad is only compatible with 4G LTE networks in the U.S. and Canada.

Apple has thus far kept its word of having the fastest product roll-out ever. It was released on the 7th of March and since then has been released in over 25 countries and territories.

So are you guys excited about this piece of news? (I know I’am)

iPod Touch 5th Generation? O_o

It has been a long time since I have been thinking about a new iPod but amidst the iPhone and the iPad, its seems that the iPod (Apple’s first revolutionary hand-held device) has lost its mark on the people. So I think Apple is again going to raise the stakes.

There is currently no ETA as to when will be the release but rumors suggest that it’ll either be launched in June or in September.

What can we expect from the 5th generation iPod:

1. Storage:

The most bizarre thing about the iPod Touch 4th generation is its storage, the 3 models are available in 8Gb, 32Gb and 64GB. See there is no 16GB. 16GB is actually the perfect memory size for an iPod but seems Apple thought otherwise. If you are wondering the reason for this, stop wondering because no one knows.

The iPod classic has a whooping 160GB storage which matches the needs of a hardcore music listener with tons of albums to take. Almost everyone who buys an iPod looks forward to have a large amount of storage, so the first thing is the iPod Touch 5th Gen is rumored to feature 128GB of memory (the high-end model).

2. Camera:

As all you iPod owners know the camera which is Apple claims to be a 720p is a pathetic experience when you start clicking images with it.

Currently with the iPhone 4S’ 8MP and the new iPad’s 5MP camera we can expect the iPod Touch to have a 5MP camera like the iPad’s.

3. 3G / 4G compatibility through MicroSim:

If you’ve been following Apple then you probably might know that Apple has always tried to bring down the size of the SIM card. The iPad supports MicroSIM and hence provides us with 3G / 4G. The current iPod Touch supports only WiFi which is kinda frustrating if you travel a lot, so we expect Apple to hop in the MicroSIM in the next iPod so that users can experience 3G / 4G on it.

4. Pricing:

Currently the iPod Touch is priced at $199, $299 and $399 depending on the memory. It would be awesome if Apple would reduce the price however that is unlikely and we believe the pricing will be the same.

5. Oleo-phobic TouchScreen:

The iPhone 4 and 4S were both sold with the oleo-phobic tag line, which arguably is a very big advancement in the field of Touchscreen technology. If you are wondering what oleo-phobic means, it is a kind of layer or a special glass panel that reduces the finger-prints on the screen keeping it much more cleaner. I think we will see this in the next iPod Touch because it will be considered as a boon to all iPod Touch users.

6. A6/A5X processor:

The new iPad has signaled the start of the A5X processor and it seems that we will see the A5X processor in the next iPod Touch, there are little chances of it being sported with the A6 processor, because I think the A6 processor will debut itself in the iPhone 5 and will surely put all the Samsung phones to bed.

7. More Audio / Video Formats Supported:

The support for more videos and audio formats has been a constant thing popping up in forums and wish lists for the iPod Touch. It would be interesting to watch DivX and FLAC support on the iPod Touch 5G and pretty much many other formats are out there still going unsupported by the iPod Touch. Decision about this is not just about technology though – one would have to think of protection and legalities also.

8. Black and White Models:

Similar to the present generation of iPod Touch, the iPod Touch 5G is most certainly going to have two variants – the black and the white.

9. More RAM:

This is one point of contention where only a few users have expressed their views. While many argue that the present RAM is decent enough, one would also have to add in the other necessary requirements such as more apps, upgraded OS and stuff like that. These will require faster and capacious RAM. The iPod  Touch 5G will do good if it comes with a faster RAM.

10. Retina Display 

As you all know the biggest feature in the new iPad is the retina display, experts say that the retina display alone is a reason enough for people to upgrade to the new iPad from the iPad 2. Well no one expects Apple to pop-in 3.1million pixels into the next iPod Touch but certainly they could make it comparable with the iPhone 4S’ retina display, which is good enough for a device of its size.

So those 10 points are some of my predictions/wants, if the next iPod Touch supports them I’m surely going to cash out my money for it.

Watch The New iPad TV ad (Pun Intended)

As usual this time again Apple has kept it’s reputation of show casing it’s new products with a simple but captivating ads. This time it was “The New iPad’s” turn to be show cased in Apple’s latest TV ad.

The ad is entitled as “This Good” emphasizing upon the goodness of the iPad’s resolution and the new retina display.

Deleting Images In PhotoStream Is Now Possible

The Newest software update by Apple to iOS 5.1 is not as engrossing as everyone had expected, most people were disappointed at the fact that it only added Siri in the Japanese language and a few wallpapers.

But as it so happened while I was reading the change log I came across the second point in it which drew all my attention.

And the point was:

Photos can now be deleted from PhotoStream

When PhotoStream was released with the iCloud everyone was a bit disappointed that we could not delete images from PhotoStream, people were more cautious about what pictures they clicked as it would directly be uploaded to the cloud and eventually would be pushed to the person’s other iDevices. That means, if someone had clicked a picture which they did not want to share, they were helpless as the pictures and images would be shared no matter what, that was disappointing but now with the new iOS 5.1 you can actually delete the images from PhotoStream.

This is the only feature in the iOS 5.1 which has drawn my attention and is urging me to update to iOS 5.1 but as I don’t want to lose my jailbreak I will wait until the exploit is released.

iPhoto In The New iPad

Alongside the third generation iPad and a new Apple TV, Apple showcased a number of apps that took advantage of the improved hardware of the new iPad. One of them was iPhoto for iOS, which brings advanced photo editing capabilities to the iPad, using touch based gestures.

Some noteworthy features:

  • You can double tap an image, and iPhoto selects similar images in your library, which you can then compare side by side.
  • Multi-touch editing: You can manipulate image properties using your fingers, by dragging up, down, left or right. The app detects blue skies, greenery and skin tones, which can then be modified easily. It also has the ability to “straighten” an image using automatic horizon detection.

Apple Updates It’s AppStore Apps!

After today’s event Apple is on a role to update all it’s previous apps to support the new iPad’s retina display.

Here are all the apps that have been updated with their change logs:

Remote

iBooks

  • Read books more easily with sharply detailed text on the new iPad’s amazing Retina display
  • See page numbers that correspond to the printed edition of the select titles
  • Search for a page number to jump to a desired page with a single tap
  • Use your finger as a highlighter when swiping over text

Find My Friends

  • Support for Retina display-capable devices
  • Bug fixes
  • Stability enhancements

iTunesU

Just before pushing these updates Apple also increased the OTA download limit to 50MB.

Apple Improves Over The Air Download Limit To 50MB

Apple has increased the size of all cellular network downloads, across all devices, to 50MBs from the long-standing cap of 20MBs. Presumably, this is a move meant to ensure that more… complicated iPad 3 titles will actually be available to those not around Wi-Fi. Of course, the next iPad also boasts 4G LTE. No better time to upgrade the ceiling, we suppose.

We’ve heard a lot of grumbling about the, now, old restriction at GDC this week. A lot of downloads come over cell, so developers want to be able to tap in the market. The downside, of course, is that it forced developers into making their games substantially smaller in scale and, in some cases, even prevented content updates.
