The iPad 3 is barely out two months or so and people are already envisioning the future generation of Apple tablets. Luis Fonseca, a designer from Portugal created the iPad 4 concept you can see below and he came up with a pretty original device, I’ll have to admit.
This idea of an iPad 4 includes a sliding QWERTY keyboard and you can imagine here rather a MacBook turned into an iPad, rather than your average Apple tablet with a keyboard attached. The keyboard slides from the bottom and the new iPad concept features Bang & Olufsen speakers, a 12 megapixel camera with 1080p video capture and an aluminum frame. It can also be easily recycled at https://www.gigacycle.co.uk, something that the designer felt the need to mention in the description of the product, so it means this is made with eco-friendliness in mind.
There’s also a portable hard disk created as accessory for the iPad 4, although with the iCloud out there, there’s not much need for extra storage, is it? I wonder if the new iPad can remain slim enough with this extra keyboard area and also I wonder if the display is still at Retina level. For some reason, I imagine this as a 7 or 8 inch device with quad core CPU and 1080p resolution… Would you buy it for $450 or so?
