You are looking at Apple’s next iPad. I found it last night at my local diner in Olathe, Kansas, camouflaged to look like an iPod Touch 3rd Gen. We got it. We used it. It’s the real thing and here are all the details. From what I can tell, Apple will announce this new iPad Nano as the next revision later this year, however we have no idea what kind of tricks Apple has up it’s sleeve so this is unconfirmed at this time.
While Apple may tinker with the final packaging and design of the final iPad Nano, it’s clear that the features in this lost-and-found next-generation iPad are drastically new and drastically different from what came before.
Here’s the detailed list of my findings:
• Smaller form factor! At first glance, it appeared to be the same size and shape as the iPod Touch. Oh no. With all of the news and press on lost and found Apple protoypes, I just knew I had my hands on the unreleased iPad Nano!
• The back is entirely chrome. This is different from the original full-sized iPad and it’s similar to the iPod Touch. Tapping on the back makes a more hollow and higher pitched sound compared to tapping on the glass on the front/screen, but that could just be the orientation of components inside making for a different sound.
How it was lost.
We don’t really have any idea. When I found it, I immediately stood up on a chair and yelled out “Who lost this iPod Touch?” My son, Casey, was tugging on my pant leg, however no stranger came forward to claim the lonely device.
I thought that I made every reasonable and just effort to find the owner and to restore the property to him, as to not be guilty of theft. *Taken from the Californian penal code.
Why we think it’s definitely real.
When I turned it on, the Apple logo appeared. This was a good sign that I was looking at a genuine Apple product. The unit booted into it’s normal desktop mode, and immediately I began to explore the many apps that were installed on the device, including Facebook, and tried to understand more about this remarkably small iPad Nano that I was holding in my hands. Once again, my son Casey just couldn’t keep his hands off of this spectacular device so I retreated to the men’s restroom for further inspection. He kept telling me “That’s mine”. I wasn’t about to hand over a GENUINE APPLE PROTOTYPE to a 13 year old. Instead, I immediately offered the iPad Nano on the open market and am holding out for a $5,000 payment from the next bidder.
New form factor.
If you thought that the iPad was too big, then this new iPad Nano is the unit for you! It’s hand-held, portable, and a prefect compliment to your iPhone. I figure Apple’s plan is for everyone to have one in each back pocket for weight distribution and proper spine alignment.
This post is a satirical joke.
That’s right. We are just having a little fun today. These are pictures of my son’s iPod Touch and there is NO SUCH THING as an iPad Nano. This blog is pretty much pointless however he’ll get a kick out of the fact that he was mentioned today here at Mission Repair. I know that you MUST have read the REAL story on Gizmodo yesterday and I thought that I’d just have a little fun with it.
iPad Nano. Think about it.
OK all, back to real work. I’ll see ya very soon!!
