Apple's New iPads: 7 Predictions

Look for Apple to revise the full-size iPad and the iPad Mini later this month. Here's what we expect -- and what we don't.

The cameras of the iPad and iPad Mini are relatively crummy. Both offer 5 megapixels and neither has a flash. Granted, taking pictures with tablets is still somewhat awkward and not something most people are comfortable doing. Even so, having a capable camera on a tablet can be useful from time to time. Rumors have suggested that both iPads will see significant upgrades to the camera. They'll most likely use the same 8-megapixel sensor that is in the iPhone 5c, which has better low-light performance. There's no word if the user-facing cameras will be improved beyond 1.2 megapixels, but it would be nice if they can make the jump from 720p to 1080p video capture.

All this growth has been around all the other companies lately. Look at the space in your Verizon , AT&T and the others. Very telling stuff. Adults will prevail. Microsoft must guard against getting too pricey... GOOGLE should win with the casual, bottom feeders and is a retail value.

re: Apple's New iPads: 7 Predictions
"Coming Soon" is Growing Tired. Jobs got away with that stuff for years. Take away the Apple groupies Apple is just another player in an ever expanding field. Users and investors can not ignore the amazing other player. Samsung, Moto, Nokia and the key player Microsoft are all gaining share. Microsoft is the true to be taken seriously. The Surface not only gives the youth market and casuals what an iAnything gives, Microsoft appeals and delivers the breath of users needs. The keyboard, the tent, loaded with "Office" and does it all. Samsung delivered all those things APPLE has been promising. With the purchase of Nokia and the ability to load the important stuff you may expect MS and Google to own a bigger share of market within year.
Apples hubris is no longer appreciated. $700.00 never again. Who knows MS may be only a $50,00 stock in a year but investors will be content.
Look at their aquisitions. And Google will hit $1200. by Q4 of 14. See the puts for next months.
