  • A flurry of rumored iPad details hit the Interwebs over the weekend, adding more fuel to the flames. The thinner, sleeker Apple tablet could sport a dual-core 1GHz ARM CPU with a new SGX543 graphics and video core offering twice the processing power at the same clock speed, a new screen technology similar to -- but not the same as -- the iPhone 4's Retina Display with a super high resolution of 2048 x 1536, exactly double the first-generation iPad's resolution. While it's not quite Retina Display sharp, human eyes may not be able to tell the difference. The device itself will remain at 10 inches but don a thinner, flatter chassis, front and rear cameras, and an SD slot. (Engadget and TUAW) More
