Apple’s next-gen iPad looms: Android tablet-makers should be shaking in their boots

“There is no doubt that Apple (AAPL) is about to unleash the iPad 3, the third edition in the company’s series of dominant tablet computers,” Michael Comeau writes for Minyanville. “Apple recently sent out an invitation to reporters, including a graphic of what is almost undoubtedly an iPad, along with the message: ‘We have something you really want to see. And touch.'”

“Anticipation of the iPad 3, and the iPhone 5, has Apple blasting its way over the $500 billion market capitalization mark, much to the chagrin of crybaby bears that regularly fall over themselves to call the top,” Comeau writes.

“I’m far more intrigued by the phrase, ‘And touch,’ which implies a significant upgrade in the touchscreen interface,” Comeau writes. “The fact that Apple is stepping up its advancements in the interface yet again should have the Google (GOOG) Android tablet market shaking in its boots… The Google Android tablet world is in a lot of trouble. The Kindle Fire and NOOK tablet have destroyed the notion of making money at the low end, and the high end is about to be walloped by the iPad 3.”

    1. That’d be doing the right thing, not only because criminally offensive objects ought to be jettisoned, but because the piles of tablets form artificial reefs which provide a basis for new, thriving marine ecosystems.

    1. Interesting thought, that this is really an Apple TV introduction and not an iPad 3 intro . . .

      However, I really don’t want to get up and touch my TV to change channels (I’m sure I wouldn’t have to), but my real concern is my kids touching the screen and me having to clean it off all the time!

  1. ‘We have something you really want to see. And touch.’”
    The “see” part could well be Apple TV build right into your iPad3, my prediction from yesterday could yet be reality. Apple TV is in fact software built right into your os device, no more set top boxes and no more imaginary 40inch physical TV sets, this could be amazing, if Apple do this and i suspect they will, it’ll be a game changer. only 7 days to find out.

    1. And what would get the video from the iPad into the TV?
      There has to be a physical connection to the set, unless the set has wifi and runs Apple software.

      Device #1 iPad3
      Device #2 AppleTV3
