The rumor mill rolled out an interesting one with this one. This is my next is adding to the reports of a retina iPad later this year, but with a twist. The device would be the “iPad HD“, and wouldn’t be the next iPad so to speak, but sold to exist alongside with the iPad 2.
The HD one would be aimed at pros though. The iPad HD would target pro users, and it’s said Apple would debut iPad versions of their pro apps (Final Cut Pro, or Aperture) alongside said device.
Our sources are saying that not only will there be a newly designed iPhone coming in the fall, but there is going to be a new entry into the iPad family as well. As hard as it might be to believe, the new tablet is said to sport a double resolution screen (2048 x 1536), and will be dubbed the “iPad HD.”
The idea behind the product is apparently that it will be a “pro” device aimed at a higher end market – folks who work in video and photo production possibly – and will be introduced alongside something like an iPad version of Final Cut or Aperture. This product is specifically said to not be the iPad 3, rather a complimentary piece of the iPad 2 line. Think MacBook and MacBook Pro.
This clears up (or adds to the confusion, however you want to look at it), at the recent “iPad 2 Plus” rumors that have been going around. We’re assuming if true that the pro iPad would have a pro price tag on it as well, contrary to it’s normal counterpart.
