We all know that Apple is already working on a successor for the iPad 2, but it appears that this model might not be called the iPad 3, after all. The info comes from analyst Craig Berger and FBR Capital Markets, through a research note.
The usual supply chain is used as the source and we now know that the product could be called the iPad 2 Plus. No production schedule was mentioned and if this name is real, than some employees from China are going to jail again for leaks, most likely. The deal here is that an iPad 2 Plus will be more of an upgrade to the iPad 2, instead of a total revamp.
Thus, it’s not fit to call a minor upgrade the iPad 3, considering the tiny difference between the new model and its predecessor. This wouldn’t be the first time that Apple chooses to launch a minor revamp of a product, as this happened with the iPhone 3GS, serving as the upgrade for the 3G model. Meanwhile, the company was working on the truly new iPhone 4…
In the end it’s the product that matters and not the name, right?
