CNBC: New York a 'key location' for unveiling Apple' quad-core 'iPad 3' with 4G [u]

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
The city of New York will play a "key" role in the Apple's unveiling of its third-generation iPad next week, a device expected to pack a quad-core processor and 4G LTE connectivity, financial news network CNBC claimed on Tuesday [updated].

In a live report Tuesday morning, the network cited anonymous sources who indicated an event will be held in New York to announce the third-generation iPad. Those same people reportedly indicated Apple's next tablet, which it said will have a quad-core CPU, will go on sale on March 9.

The network also reaffirmed earlier reports that have claimed the next iPad will offer compatibility with high-speed 4G long-term evolution networks. Earlier rumors had pointed toward an event being held next Wednesday, March 7, to unveil the new iPad.

However, Jim Dalrymple of The Loop immediately took to Twitter to declare CNBC "wrong." Dalrymple has a proven track record with respect to Apple's plans.

Update: CNBC's Jon Fortt later took to the air to clarify that he has heard that New York City will be a "key location" in next week's anticipated iPad event. He did not have any further details as to how New York would play into Apple's announcement.

If Apple does in fact hold an event in New York, it would be the first time the company has unveiled a new version of the iPad on the east coast. Unveilings of the last two iPads have taken place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, Calif.

While Apple's major product unveilings typically occur in California, the company has held some events in New York in recent years to make relatively minor announcements. Most recently, Apple held an event at the Guggenheim Museum to unveil iBooks 2, iBooks Author and iTunes U for iPad in January.




It was said that Apple chose New York for its publishing-related announcements in January because the publishing industry is based in New York. CNBC did not indicate on Tuesday why Apple would hold an event for its so-called "iPad 3" in New York, however.

Apple also held two media events in the Big Apple in early 2011: one to unveil The Daily, a publication from News Corp for the iPad, and a second held last January to announce a Verizon-compatible iPhone model.

Oh, right, the invites should be going out tomorrow, shouldn't they?

These guys need to be fined for lying, though. Heck, all TV media needs to be fined for lying.

Call me suspicious, but like you, I doubt very highly that anything will happen. Too late to get an announcement out.

AND, if Apple does announce the iPad3 next week, it will likely be an understated affair from Cupertino. They don't need to make a big splash these days with all of the hype surrounding its impending release.

See, here's the problem: CNBC doesn't know jack about the iPad 2X.

Excited about whatever they release, this will be my first iPad, but skeptical about '4G' in general. The coverage is so little and the speeds are so not as advertised, it's still little more than a gimmick.

I'll likely go WiFi only.

Could it be becoz NY gets better 4G connection then California?

Since much of the media is located in NyC invites need not go out early. Further the invites might already be out there, I mean honestly how do you think CNBC came up with the projection in the first place.

Well I played devils advocate above but frankly I agree with you. One of the reasons I don't watch TV much is due very much to the lies, distortions, ignorance and bias that passes for news. It comes from all sides to the benefit of none. The bad reporting isn't always malicious so fining people for being stupid may be an exercise without results. I think it is fair to say that today's news is about looks, not about reporting from individuals with a strong grasp of the subject matter. Of course that does not excuse out right lying, bias or distortion.

Does CNBC actually know shit? The cynical part of me says shit like this is an attempt to tank the stock, when the 'dissapointing' dual-core, non-LTE iPad3 is revealed. I can see the headlines now. 'Underwhelming', 'below-expectations', 'less than expected', etc. I find it very hard to swallow we'll get a quad-core AND LTE. Seems like a damn stretch, but it's what these news sites are trying to make us believe we're getting.

Does CNBC even know what quad-core means...?? Or does it just sound cool to them...

I hate it when this happens. But this was exactly my first thought when I read the article. It could be written to intentionally harm Apples reputation by raising false expectations. So I try to believe a iPad 2S or 3? will be introduced with 3G connection with a very speedy dual core CPU in combination with 2-3 times faster GPU.

I don't care if Apple decides to hold the event in the middle of nowhere, or on the freaking moon. As long as they hold an event, that's all that matters.

The announcement will be made today or tomorrow I'm guessing, because as of tomorrow, there's exactly one week to go until march 7, if that date happens to be true.

It needs to be quad-core and 4G to be fully buzzword compliant.

There's just as much tech media in Cali as New York and Apple is more likely to do a small event with those folks on their own campus (similar to the iPhone 4s announcement) than fly across country.

I'll counter and say they do not have to hold an event. They could take down the home page around 9pm tonight with a banner that says "come back tomorrow at 10am (Pacific) for some very exciting news" and then just post the videos etc and folks will still be freaking out, folks will be banging the server to make their reservations etc. And even if the specs are vastly under the rumors and the stock goes down $20 or so, the moment that Apple announces that they sold 10 million in the first 3 days, the stock will shoot up again so no biggie.

Meanwhile Samsung etc will be scratching their balls trying to figure out how the heck Apple does this and it works

While I think it possible to have 4G, 4 cores(iPad 4x4?); you bring up an interesting question-

If reporter x reports 'rumors' etc on company Y's new product Z (knowing full well it maybe BS and overhyped) and then shorts the stock (is that the right term?)... is that legal? Are they even allowed to report on stock they personnally own? I would think at a minimum ethics say disclose or not own.

Then again, it doesnt necessarily have to be them, but their wives buddies etc.

Has Apple stock price dropped after new product announcements?

I didn't say they wouldn't release a 4G. Also, I bought a 3G in 2008. There was much more coverage for 3G then, than there is for 4G now. Here and abroad. I spent a month in Europe with my 3G, late that year.

I don't see any reason for NY but I was surprised by the iBooks Author location. Maybe that will be Cook's thing.

LTE will grow quickly over the next year as we will finally have chips that are decent enough to be used.

Everyone I know that has a 4G phone either has poor battery life or turns off that functionality most of the time. I would characterize their phones as "Damn! That's a huge screen! How do you use it as a phone?"

Agreed. The Press gets a NDA to sign and on embargo with authorization to leak out a bit here and there before the presentation.

CNBC wasn't making the claim, but an analyst talking on CNBC, right?
post #28 of 49
well, Mr. Jon Fortt, you sure got a great "anonymous source." here is a little tip about "journalism":

one source = a rumor.

second independent confirming source = a story.

gonna take you a few days to wipe all that egg off your face.

Perhaps, but it was CNBC who decided to believe the analyst and they treated it as some sort of breaking news, even making a news alert.

CNBC was wrong about the location (although I suppose there could be a simultaneous stream venue in NYC for the media). Maybe because their source had info about the already-past textbooks event, and mistakenly thought it was new info? Or maybe just flat-out sourceless info over-hyped.

So Ill discount the rest of CNBCs rumor too, and expect, letss see, a tri-core iPad 3! Three cores... yeah, that sounds good. Ill go with that.

Oh well. CNBC should leave rumor-mongering to the expert rumor-mongers. (And we all know who they are. :-))

It's possible that Apple gave the NYC unveiling rumor to an employee who they suspected of leaking announcements and/or info. That way they could confirm that the individual was in fact the source of leaks and could take steps. (As mycatsnameis has already posted...)

I was thinking exactly the same thing.

Security officer: "Well, we've got it down to these four individuals as our leaker. So let's let them see announcements saying that the announcement will be held at Apple Campus, Chicago, NYC, and Las Angeles".

the iPad 3 will do just fine in the marketplace. there's no need to feel personally slighted by comments / opinions from a complete stranger.

It won't have 4G and if you think it will you ought to stop bothering with sites like this because you clearly aren't learning anything.

Apple will not ruin the iPad's battery life and compactness by putting a piece of technology in their device that only a tiny, tiny fraction of its customers will be able to make use of during the life-cycle of the product.

It's by having that simple focus that Apple has been so successful. I just don't see how anyone can fail to see this.

2012 is ripe for Apple to add LTE to their iPad and/or iPhone. There are other devices using new LTE chips that are fairly power efficient, certainly more so than between Apple's first and second iPhone where they went from EDGE to UMTS data.

That is not to say that Apple will launch LTE with the iPad before the iPhone but there is no real technical issue at this point that would be make it an unlikely prospect.

You DO realize the second wave of LTE chips is entering production, right? The ones with much better power draw?
