More on iPad 3 coming this spring, difficulty in producing Retina Displays

The Wall Street Journal tells us that -- surprise, surprise -- Apple is working on a Retina Display iPad 3 for this fall!

The Cupertino, Calif., company has ordered key components such as display panels and chips for a new iPad it is aiming to launch in early 2012, said the people.

The next generation iPad is expected to feature a high resolution display - 2048 by 1536 compared with 1024 by 768 in the iPad 2 - and Apple's suppliers have already shipped small quantities of components for the sampling of the iPad 3. Suppliers said Apple has placed orders for a 9.7-inch screen device.

    Special edition Mobile Nations podcast tonight at 9PM Eastern

    We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this special announcement: Mobile Nations podcast is broadcasting live tonight at 9PM. There's a lot for us to talk about between HP dumping webOS hardware to Google gobbling up Motorola, and we can't sit on our hands anymore. So we're broadcasting live tonight at 9PM Eastern (6PM Pacific, 1AM UTC).

    Mobile Nations brings together the heads of the SPE communities, with at the very least Rene Ritchie of TiPb, Kevin of CrackBerry, Phil of Android Central, Dan of WPcentral, and - of course - Derek of PreCentral (plus maybe a few others). There's going to be a lot to talk about, and things will be kicking off at 9PM Eastern, so be there. It's going to be amazing. There might be tears.

    Join us here, or at MobileNations.com.

    Did iPad kill HP's hardware business?

    Did iPad kill HP's hardware business?

    After Apple introduced the iPad I wondered out loud on iPad Live whether it would leave any air in the room for eventual tablet rivals. It turns out I might have been right, but also might not have been right enough. The iPad, and now iPad 2, might not have left any air in the room for any hardware rivals, tablet or PC.

    HP is not only killing off their webOS hardware and looking to license the software, HP is spinning or selling off their laptop and desktop computer business as well. Why?

    HP to discontinue webOS devices -- Pre, Veer, and TouchPad bite the dust

    HP has just announced that they're killing off webOS devices, namely the Pre, Veer, and TouchPad -- or everything that competes with iPhone and iPad.

    In addition, HP reported that it plans to announce that it will discontinue operations for webOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones. HP will continue to explore options to optimize the value of webOS software going forward.

    Derek Kessler, editor of our sibling site PreCentral.net pulls no punches:

    Google's $12.5 billion dollar Motorola insurance policy

    Google's $12.5 billion dollar Motorola insurance policy

    Why would Google pay $12.5 billion for Motorola? It cost them 18 months of their profits. It's 3 times what Apple, Microsoft, and a consortium of others paid for Nortel's patents. It's 10 times what HP paid for Palm. Hell, Google is guaranteeing twice as much in break-up penalty alone as HP paid for Palm. Why would a smart company like Google, one that's already sunk untold resources into an OS they essentially give away for free, spend so much of their capital on a single Android licensee for whom profitability is a somewhat distant memory?

    Patents is the throw away line, the canard Larry Page foisted at the end of his blog post and the sound bite rival Android ODMs repeated, Stepford-like when welcoming Motorola's new overlord to the Open Handset Alliance table. Were Motorola's patents worth 3 times Nortel's? Were they worth 10 times Palm's? (Especially considering Apple and Microsoft are already suing Motorola and Palm's patents are such that there hasn't even been a whisper of patent-suit in their general direction?)

    Likewise set top boxes. Apple calls Apple TV a hobby. Google TV could, perhaps, charitably fall into that category as well. Granted, getting Android software onto the actual cable box is more compelling than an iOS box in addition to a cable box, but the key word in all these equations is "cable". Both traditional land-based cable companies (most of which are monopolies) and satellite companies, (which are duopolies or oligopolies), have vested interests in control and content and they're the ultimate arbiter in which boxes they offer and to whom. (TiVo and Windows Media Centers with cable cards haven't fought their way out of that paper bag yet either.) Is that business worth $12.5 billion?

    Let's get Oliver Stone about this for a minute and look at a) where Google makes their money, and b) the historical reason for Androids existence and continued development.

    TiPb Asks: What do you want in the next generation iPod touch?

    TiPb Asks: What do you want in the next generation iPod touch?

    We've been talking so much about the iPhone 5 lately that it feels as if the iPod touch 5 is flying a little under the radar. Usually the iPod touch gets to headline Apple's annual fall special event but this year it sounds like the iPhone 5 is going to be stealing that thunder as well. Also, while iPod touch used to have the kids and the "I want iOS but I don't want an iPhone" market all to itself, it now has to share that with iPad, which isn't as portable but can be easier to use in some circumstances.

    So how about we give the iPod touch 5 some love and ask what you want to see Apple announce for it this year?

    An Apple A5 chipset seems a given, and that should be great for gaming with its 9x performance (and AirPlay mirroring in iOS 5, which is fabulous.)

    Head of iAds leaving Apple to join Highland Capital

    Technology blog *All Things D" reports that Andy Miller, VP of Apple's iAd mobile advertising division, is leaving to join venture capital firm, Highland Capital.

    Miller came to Apple as part of the Quatro Wireless acquisition, which Apple purchased after losing out on AdMob to Google. He reported directly to Steve Jobs. iAd, however, has faced a number of issues and hasn't exactly set the mobile ad world on fire.

    No word yet on who will replace him.
