According to this is my next‘s anonymous sources, a higher resolution iPad is scheduled for launch later this year, dubbed as the “iPad HD”. The report claims that this high-end version will sell alongside iPad 2 instead of replacing it and is primarily aimed at creative professionals from photo and video industry. Also, applications like Final Cut Pro or Aperture may also be introduced with the launch of iPad HD.
According to TIMN:
Our sources are saying that not only will there be a newly designed iPhone coming in the fall, but there is going to be a new entry into the iPad family as well. As hard as it might be to believe, the new tablet is said to sport a double resolution screen (2048 x 1536), and will be dubbed the “iPad HD.” The idea behind the product is apparently that it will be a “pro” device aimed at a higher end market — folks who work in video and photo production possibly — and will be introduced alongside something like an iPad version of Final Cut or Aperture. This product is specifically said to not be the iPad 3, rather a complimentary piece of the iPad 2 line. Think MacBook and MacBook Pro.
Through there have been many evidences pointing at a higher resolution or retina display iPad including the following image which was extracted from iOS 5 SDK, the only thing that doesn’t fit it why Apple would hold it back until the fall? Could it be the price factor? Do tell us what you think!
