Apple iPad 3 "dead cert" to be 3D enabled

Apple iPad 3
A movie industry insider told RCR that it is a "dead cert" that the next build of the Apple iPad will be enabled for 3D video. According to the rumor, studios are already preparing 3D content for the tablet and allegedly, multiple sources within Foxconn are confirming the story of early production plans.

While capturing 3D content with the tablet is simple and already implemented in rival T-Mobile G-Slate (Optimus Pad), playback might be a problem. Small screen phones like LG Thrill 4G (Optimus 3D) and HTC EVO 3D can produce glasses free 3D, but it is way more expensive to do so on the big displays used in Tablets. This is the reason the G-Slate requires glasses for 3D watching. However, this may be something that Apple may not implement, as it is not really a minimalistic solution.

What do you guys think: will the next gen iPad be 3D-enabled or not?

Well lets see the iPad is overrated, 3d is overrated so would the iPad 3 be doubly overrated then?

if that is true... definitely an iPad 3 name would be great! 3-d display, 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer, 3-G internet, 3 million sales and 3 million antennagate issues :D

Hmmm you make a good point about everything until you say "where's third party apps?" there's about 350,000 of those. Haven't you heard of the app store?

Its Battery* and it depends how/where you flash it, unless you're too retarded to figure it out.

and yet it'll still outlast the iPhone battery and perform better. That is amazing with just only having 90% battery.

IO5 I don't hate the iPhone or ipad I hate the company apple I hate the filthy snobs That run that company like Steve jobs and Paul Allen who want to file a lawsuit on every little thing thats similar to their product

i agree with heatfan316, the iphone is not pretty bad its a good phone its how the company praises it like its meant to hold by god or something

17. IOS5 unregistered

Heatfan316 sorry man my bad you're right 100% but when some body stole your staff and make it it's own staff and when you asked him pls I need my staff back and he won't. actually what I came to know that Apple warned samsung before sue them but samsung refused.

"In addition, because of the size of tablet screens, 3D glasses would be needed as opposed to the glasses-free 3D..." 3D is overrated. However, companies like samsung are developing glasses free TVs, so the article is wrong. Apple has also filed a patent for glasses free 3d technology (http://news.cnet.com/8301-31021_3-20024309-260.ht ml). My next phone will be the Samsung Galaxy S II. The stats are pretty incredible, check it outhttp://www.samsung.com/global/microsite/galaxys2/h tml/feature.html

i hope iPAD3 will be released this september, because all apple worshippers are rich and can afford to change every 6 months extremely expensive gadgets.

alright people, are you f**king serious? Apple is the best thing that ever happened to technology- if you are putting it down, you obviously cannot afford one or just can't have it because u don't have att or verizon.to think of any better computer or phone or tablet than apple, is totally idiotic. why do you think everyone tries to copy the design of the ipad and iphone? the only competing phone is blackberry and they suck ass. I am although 100% skeptical of the "3D" aspect of the iphone 5 because the os x 5 has been advertised now on apple.com...go check it out. although if apple did pull it off- just imagine? go away h8rzzzz why are you on here anyway if you hate mac? you obviously searched it, you just wish u waz cool enough to have an iphone.
