SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 2, 2012

Welcome to Friday evening everyone - the weekend is here at last, but before we dive in, it's time to recap the news. Today we heard that Microsoft might be testing out a smartphone of its own, which doesn't really surprise us considering that it just recently entered the tablet market. Apple's freshly rephrased "apology" to Samsung went live in UK newspapers today, and one analyst is expecting the iPad mini to top 1.5 million sales this weekend. Speaking of the iPad mini, we saw a drop test featuring the tiny slate today, and the tablet launched to shorter-than-normal lines for an Apple product.

iPad 4th gen GPU innards revealed

iPad 4th gen GPU innards revealed

The newest iPad has had its guts revealed once again, showing off not just the pieces we knew about, the A6X processor included, but the GPU and its abilities as well. The folks at AnandTech have gone in for a deep-dive into the A6X as it exists on the iPad 4, showing a brand new PowerVR SGX 554 GPU. The A6X processor retains many elements from the A5X processor the iPad 3 worked with, including the memory controller interface sitting adjacent to the GPU cores instead of the CPU cores, as it was in the A5 and the standard A6 (on the iPhone 5).

iPad 4 teardown: More of the same (and a missed opportunity)

iPad 4 teardown: More of the same (and a missed opportunity)

Apple's fourth-gen iPad may have been a bit-player alongside the iPad mini at the launch event last week, but the 9.7-inch tablet still gets its time under the screwdriver. The tricksy teardown merchants at iFixit have wasted no time in putting the iOS slate in its place: that is, in separate pieces splayed across the table.

The 9.7-inch tablet has already cornered much of the market, with the late-2012 polish basically pushing the slate to the pinnacle of Apple's processor development, and outfitting it with a Lightning connector to match the iPhone 5.

Nexus 10 vs iPad 4th Gen

Nexus 10 vs iPad 4th Gen

It would appear that amongst the software and hardware releases Google has detailed this week is their first giant iPad competitor in the Google Nexus 10. At first glance the differences might not be abundant to an everyday average user other than the obvious Android vs iOS and feel of each device. As it turns out though, these two tablets, for the first time, create a battle between the iPad and an Android-toting tablet made not just by a major manufacturer, but Google as well.
