Digitimes Research – Market watchers have mostly expected Apple to follow its traditional pricing strategy for its next-generation tablet device, which is likely to start from US$499 with the present iPad 2 to drop to US$399. Sources from Apple’s supply chain have claimed that there will be two versions of the new iPad, one targeting the high-end segment and the other the mid-range. Digitimes Research believe the two new iPad models will both be equipped the A6 (quadcore) processor with high-end model coming with a high resolution panel (2048×1536) and the mid-tier model featuring the same grade of panel as iPad 2 (1024×768). The speculation is the mid-tier model would be priced as low as $299.
Digitimes – Apple is set to unveil its next-generation iPad – which will come in two versions – at the iWorld scheduled for January 26, 2012. The tablets would not be actually available until February or March. The new iPads should have an 8 megapixel and 5 megapixel camera.
