iPad 3 launch

2012-03-08

Queen’s University digital culture and technology expert Sidneyeve Matrix is available to talk about Apple’s highly anticipated launch of the iPad 3, which takes place on Wednesday.

“It’s nearly been a year since the iPad 2 was released so the time is right for an upgrade. There are many rumours on what updates will be added – higher resolution screen, Siri (the popular voice-activated assisted that was recently added to the iPhone 4S), and a cheaper 8-gigabyte iPad to compete with low-cost competitors. No matter what the updates are, there will be a buying frenzy from Apple’s diehard users the day the iPad 3 hits the stores," says Dr. Matrix, who is a professor in the Department of Film and Media Studies.
