More purported iPad 3 parts surface

Show only minor changes to the design

Images of what are claimed to be iPad 3 components have surfaced online, showing few changes from the current iPad 2 design.

The MIC Gadget blog has published photographs of what are claimed to be the front glass panel and rear shell of the next-generation iPad, as well as a video featuring the components (below).

There are also photographs of the Home button - which some had speculated would be missing from the iPad 3 when Apple's official invitations were sent out - adding weight to separate reports from last week that the Home button would still be present.

MIC Gadget says that the iPad 3 will come in three capacities - 16GB, 32GB and 64GB - despite reports from Taiwan last week that only mentioned the 16GB and 32GB models. Interestingly, the report claims that the prices will be the same as the current iPad 2 prices, and there will be no 4G/LTE capabilities.

Meanwhile, a report in Ars Technica claims that devices running iOS 6.0 have been visiting its website, logging on from within a block of IP addresses known to belong to Apple.

The data also shows that a device with a resolution of 2048 x 1536, which is the expected resolution of the iPad 3's retina display, has also been visiting the website. However, as Ars Technica has since clarified, the device with the 2048 x 1536 resolution isn't necessarily running iOS 6.

Apple Insider has noted that Apple is decorating San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts with a large, colourful banner in preparation for Wednesday's event.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
