Here's what the iPad 3 won't be (but we wish it was)

Here's what the iPad 3 won't be (but we wish it was)
Now, we don’t know what the next-gen iPad will look like. Quite frankly, Apple has been pretty good with keep it under cover as any other of its products, that the only think rumors point to is a high-res display and hopefully a better battery. At the same time, we’re pretty confident it won’t have a dreamy edge-to-edge display and all the awesome features pictured in the concept video below. But we wish it would.

The video imagined by well known Aatma Studio depicts a concept of the iPad 3 that not only has an edge-to-edge screen, but it also easily connects with another iPad via NFC which augments the screen to include that of the second tablet, and it somehow projects controls to the side and even 3D-esque holographic image above it.

Now, what we’re particulaly impressed is the flight of the fantasy of Aatma Studios. It will certainly inspire you with some futuristic ideas. It could also make you less enthusiastic when you see the actual next-gen iPad on March 7th, so proceed with caution, especially if you’re a barista.

Yeah right... 1) Imagine all the accidental selections you'll make without the bezel there, no bezel would only work for phones. 2) You know it's never going to happen when someone makes a fan video of it...Apple never listens to their customers untill it affects their sales, if not, they're sticking to their guns...

I personally can't even think of a bezel-less phone working. It would still have way too many accidental touches for my liking

If that weren't just a concept video of the iPad 3 and if it were actually the real thing, I would buy 10. But, since we know that all of the great open minds are not employed by Apple and that the iPad 3 was probably designed by iSlÅves, I'll have to just dream. Great concept; too bad it will never be reAliTy thanks to KrApple.

Terrible idea Unlike phones, you can't hold the device by the edge and bezel is required to hold it up with one hand

Just made the edges "inactive" more or less. Used for display purposes (so you can get every bit of screen real estate without having to resort to making monsterous sized devices) but nothing else.

exactly.... why is that a hard concept to grasp. for that matter it could be a black or white or customizable "bezel" that appears on the screen and shows the area of the screen which isnt touch-active until you hit a button for "full screen" kind of like on most phone's phone galleries.... but anyway, this comncept could lead to a million more uses for the tablet products and ability to add multiple tablets and have them act as one could have endless applications. all these people that say "never gonna happen" - hahahaha. just wait.

So applications would have to be redesigned such that they were aware that their perimeters weren't allowed touch input? Or would each application have to toggle between: - "perimeter touch sensitivity active mode" and - "perimeter touch sensitivity inactive mode". That's too complicated. Nobody wants to produce an interface where they have unusable space but it's better for that unusable space to be on the hardware where it would feel natural than on the software when that doesn't feel natural.

no...just no connecting the two is a great idea, but having no where to hold onto a tablet is an awful idea. this however will not be the ipad3.

Easy, you will hold your iPad 3 HD handle official accessory that I am in the process of releasing. I just took a handle off an old suit case and glued it to a card board box molded to fit the new fatter iPad 3 HD. I then I slapped an Apple sticker on the back and now I plan on making millions on you iTards.
