As is challenged by users worldwide, the new iPad tablet seems to reveal more problems: overheating in games, trouble charging the battery, and now the problems with stability WiFi network connection.

IPad 2 users, now the owners of a fresh new series of iPad tablet accuses a weak reception of WiFi signal. Inconvenience to the edge appears mostly to the range of wireless network, but also in locations where a standard laptop or old iPad tablet 2 have any problems with signal stability. According to reports from users, the signal is affected not only stability but also transfer rates obtained, it is sometimes even four times lower than those achieved with iPad 2.

So far Apple has not commented on the issues raised by users, but given the increasing number of complaints coming in forums, you may have to do with something more than isolated incidents, occurring sporadically in the new series iPad tablet.

The new iPad 3  has trouble charging the battery too

Problems seem to appear when we use the AC adapter included with the accessories and USB 2.0 connectivity provided by some PCs.
Failure to use USB 2.0 connection for power can be easily understood if we consider the battery capacity used, 70% higher than the iPad 2. Given the large difference between the maximum energy absorbed by the battery and very low amperage current supplied via USB 2.0, it is normal charging time is very high, even exceeding the speed to download an iPad on. In these circumstances it is understandable why some users complain that the new iPad will only download when connected to a USB 2.0 port.

However, I can’t understand why Apple shipped for the new iPad only one AC power adapter (10W), while a MacBook Air with a battery that has almost the same capacity, benefits from a feeder four times stronger.

Even if the AC adapter is connected, the new iPad’s battery “is getting tired” visibly if we insist to conduct demanding activities such as games or sessions using multiple applications simultaneously. The irony is that this time we notify the battery is under load, even though it is often the opposite.

The new iPad was a topic of intense discussion in recent days. A lot of them refers to screen resolution of 2048×1536 pixels. Those who saw it in the flesh say that is impressive in every respect. But analysts say that Apple may have problems with them. Home detention to display the new iPad retina is related to autonomy. Although the surface is the same as the previous model, the higher number of pixels means that are required twice as many LEDs for lighting.

A larger number of LEDs involves higher consumption and Apple has almost doubled the battery capacity. This was reflected on the size and weight of the tablet. iPad manufacturer says the new model offers the same range as the iPad 2, but analysts are reluctant about this statement. Not only the screen consume more, but the chipset too, which now comes with a quad core GPU. Hopefully Apple have done well calculations in terms of consumption.

Another problem with iPad’s screen 3 is availability. If the device will have the same success as previous models, it is possible that display manufacturers can not face the demand. The technology for these panels is the next generation and there are few plants able to produce. We shall see how things will be in the second half of March, when new iPad will enter the market.

According to the recent rumors regarding the launch of three of new iPad 3 tablet in the evening past those from DigiTimes announced that iPad 3 will be available on the market in next 3-4 months.

Meanwhile, Foxconn Electronics will begin to produce the next-generation iPads in January and to ramp up the production volume starting February, according to a Chinese-language Commercial Times report, which quoted Kevin Chang, an analyst of Citigroup Global Markets, as indicating.

They argue that Apple partners have already begun to deliver new components to manufacturers of the tablet and by March we should have the tablet available in stores. Since Apple prepares the iPad 3 launch, the company reduces stocks of components for the iPad 2 and in the first quarter of the year will reduce the number of products manufactured to clear their stocks before the new product launch.

The scenario presented by DigiTimes is consistent with the Apple made last year and a launch in March is very possible. From iPad 3 a lot of people expect Retina Display, more subtle forms and can more easily, a quad-core and an change iOS. I recommend you to not expect too much from the new tablet to not get a new disappointment on the part of Apple.

So far only rumors are circulating about the third generation of iPad. It seems that the PC tablet will come with a Retina Display, which was initially told that the iPad 2 will have this type of screen and it will have dimensions slightly smaller than previous generations.

Specialists are quite skeptical about the launch of the new product so fast. Basically, iPad 2 was launched in March and will take on average six months of state stores and then comes the next generation.

Moreover, if we think that any product launch is very expensive for the company because of promotion activities and that the public may be tempted to wait six months to buy the third generation of iPad, Apple could have a problem.

According to other sources, the iPad is a upgrade from its predecessor and not a new generation of tablet PC, which seems more reasonable in terms of both cost and in terms of risks assumed by the company.

It remains to be seen how much truth is in these speculations. Apple recently applied with success to maintain public interest through small rumors about its intentions. If that is the key to success we will certainly see the numbers.

Yesterday one of the famous analysts from Morgan Stanley sent by certain investors in a report indicating that the future iPhone 5 will be produced at the end of August and the launch will take place in September. These data come from a visit made by Katy Huberty (Morgan Stanley analyst) in Asia at some of the company’s partners who had production quotas for the coming months.

This information is not new but coming from a company such as Morgan Stanley is quite important, reinforcing the idea of launching iPhone 5 in September.

Leaving aside the iPhone 5, and start talking about the possible launch of iPad 2 tablet with LTE technology. You’ve probably heard about the hackers from LulzSec who broke several times the Sony network as well as other websites of government agencies worldwide. They seem to have broken the network of AT&T and published several important documents in which references can be found on a tablet launch LTE compatible with iPad 3. Apparently AT&T would have tested this tablet in November 2010 on its network but do not specify anything about a possible launch in 2011 or 2012. If Apple will release iPad 3 compatible with LTE then we can be sure that an iPhone as “equipped” as they say, will be available soon.
