Apple is undoubtedly the fastest growing company of past one decade. Its Mac book and operating system Linux were the first to make a huge dent in Microsoft’s market share. Then iPhone and iPad came and completely eclipsed the market. But nobody could have seen this coming; Apple announced this Wednesday the new A5 chip in iPad 2 is promising to stir up the storm.
The A5 chip
IPad is already a market leader in the tablet section. The only competition it faces is from Samsung, who are yet to capture the imagination of the market. The new improved redesigned tablet has many significant changes, the first of which is this super fast A5 chip. The previous version, the A4 chip that is currently used in iPad and iPhone 4 was also very well appreciated by the critics and users alike. The A5 not only shots up the speed by double but is also equipped with an additional processor. So users get twice the computing speed they were enjoying on their iPads.
The revolutionary approach
Apple is indeed the harbinger of all the innovation that floats around in the market. It snatched that tag from Microsoft years ago. Whether it is the fact that it creates its hardware or its unique approach towards the market, Apple’s every move draws buzz. One reason behind the amazing success of Apps store is the profit sharing model. This model is only one of its kinds. According to the official statement, it has Apple has paid around $2.5 billion to app developers. This chunk forms 70 percent of all the revenue that Apple has generated with the sale of its applications. Market pundits and experts have commended this generous approach. No other big corporation has ever been this forthcoming in sharing its profits.
The new changes
Along with the A5 processor, Apple has also improved its graphic processing. The tablet format was initially planned as a revolutionary in hand device that would be one stop solution or hub for all the graphic and video need of the users. This remarkable balance between graphic performance, battery life and computing prowess works very well in combination. Apple officials have claimed their strategy for the future of the tablet market is not only different but is also revolutionary in its very inception. The first insistence is to shift the focus from raw computing to over all computing efficiency. The idea is to build a device that not only offers excellent battery life and superior graphic performance, but is also easy to carry and handle. Apple has offered exactly that. The nine times faster graphics is an achievement that is unmatched in the market. This not only satisfies users gaming needs, but is also a very good option for designers and architects. The sales are only expected to go up with this new announcement.
