Details: Reports show the iPad 3 as extremely close in form to the iPad 2, allowing for accessory compatibility, and having faster internal gear, especially in graphics processing. That's mainly thanks to the Retina Display due to be included, which offers double the resolution of the current iPads.
Likelihood: High. Lots of people are making the iPhone 4-to-4S comparison, although a doubled resolution on the world’s leading tablet is a lot more interesting than a voice-activated, sometimes-helpful assistant.
Get excited?: If you’ve been holding out all this time for the right iPad, this is probably the one: really fast web everywhere, really crisp graphics, and light and thin.
Upcoming HTC phones to play PlayStation library games
Details: Combined with the HTC rumors further up this post, HTC is packing a lot into their phone packages: buy our Android devices, and you get access to our own streaming music, along with, say, Final Fantasy VII for those long airport lulls.
Likelihood: Hard to say. Sony does, in fact, have a certification program in place for its portable PlayStation platform, and HTC is, as shown, eager to bundle up their offerings. But it's early yet.
Get excited?: If you have fond memories of closing that circular CD-ROM bay on the classic beige PlayStation, then, absolutely--get happy that you won't need to buy an odd Sony PlayStation phone to get your mobile game on.
