In keeping with&#a hundred and sixty;Ashok Kumar, an analyst at&#a hundred and sixty;Rodman & Renshaw, the&#one hundred sixty;iPad 2G&#a hundred and sixty;(and even perhaps the&#a hundred and sixty;iPhone 5&#a hundred and sixty;) may have a twin coronary heart to compete with its opponents,&#one hundred sixty;the Blackberry playbook or extra just lately motopad Motorola.
The analyst said:
Apple is on track to refresh the iPad by March and iPhone by late summer. A key component upgrade across these platforms will be a dual-core processor featuring a pair of 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 cores.
If this happens, it will be the first iOS product from the Cupertino-based company to sport a dual-core chip. And since both the current iPad and iPhone 4 shares same A4 CPU, it will be a no brainer for Apple to include the same chip in iPhone 5 that they are going to use in iPad 2.
The analyst also told CNET something about the Verizon iPhone:
iPhone volumes could also be maintained at the 15 million/quarter level through next year. The launch at Verizon could support an incremental 8 million units.
To date, the iPad (and the iPhone 4 ) is equipped with Apple's processor (manufactured by Samsung), the Apple A4 . The future holds great surprises.
