Apple to reportedly double 'iPad 3' RAM to 1GB

    Tegra 3 was more power efficient than 2 thanks in part to its four cores being able to run at a lower frequency during certain tasks rather than two at a higher one, the assumption that 4 instantly means a greater power consumption than 2 is false, and Apples might be on a 28nm fab process which would bring it down even lower. I would still prefer a much faster dual to a slower quad, but just on the energy thing people are mistaken. And A15 designs are still about a year out, so unless Apple made a ground-up Krait-like architecture similar to the A15 but earlier it would be A9 based still.

    If Apple managed to get supplies of the Qualcomm MDM9615 chipset (which combines CDMA, GSM and 3GPP LTE all into one chipset), then the new iPad will include LTE support.

    The iPad 1 never had enough RAM. Even running 4.2

    I got rid of mine as soon as 2 came out for literally that specific reason.

    No, not all. Different people buy for different reasons.

    But it cannot be disputed that Apple's marketing results in huge numbers of sales.

    Many, many people buy an iPad without even considering anything else. Why? For lots of reasons, including their desire to be one of the crowd while simultaneously being an individual who thinks different.
