iPad 3 concept video: How Apple could really blow us away

The window for design firms to spit out flashy iPad 3 concepts is closing now that Apple has announced plans for an iPad event on March 7, but here’s one late entry that’s fun to ponder.

SCUTTLEBUTT: iPad 3 rumor roundup for week of Feb. 28

ROUNDUP: Hottest iPad 3 design concepts

San Francisco’s Aatma Studio, which specializes in 3d animation and digital content, shares its vision for an iPad 3 that boasts an edge-to-edge Retina Display and makes use of near-field communications (NFC) and internal magnets to connect and communicate between iPads. What’s more, this futuristic tablet would support 3D multiplayer hologram-based games, such as the football game shown in the video.

We’ve collected some of the most colorful and intriguing iPad 3 design concepts previously, but this Aatma Studio presentation is probably the most elaborately imagined to date.

It's been about a year since Apple showed off its market-leading iPad 2, and the new iteration -- whatever it is formally called -- is expected to boast a 2048-by-1536-pixel Retina Display with better resolution than the current screen, a more powerful processor (maybe a quad-core A6), a better camera (8mp), bigger battery and possibly support for 4G LTE networks.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
