@marionjames05 It depends on how you treat your phone? I don’t use either, but the bezel has scratches now. The glass is pretty tough though

Also, a big jump in battery capacity (25 to 42 W-hr), but the same effective life (10 hrs). Significant drain from the A5X and LTE chips?

via Echofon

I wonder what LTE bands Smart uses here, and if they’re compatible with either the AT&T or Verizon oughts

Love the fade effect/transition on apple.com (like the one before, for the MacBook Air)

Well, I guess all that haptic stuff was pipe dream material. Maybe in the iPad 4? (or “New New iPad”?)

Lots of bezel gestures from offscreen on iPhoto for iPad, supposedly. Hoping they add gesture recognizers for that!

via Echofon

An eye-Fi card in a DSLR paired with iPhoto on iPad would probably be super awesome.

via Echofon

iPhoto for iPad. Appropriate given the fancy new camera. (And one less reason to bring a laptop on trips.)

@dmartinng Just basic trimming, frame capture, + upload. I think it supports dynamic link with Premiere/AE (but too busy to test right now)

via Echofon in reply to dmartinng

@dmartinng On closer inspection, I think it’s the bits for handling/rendering video from DSLRs.

via Echofon in reply to dmartinng

@dmartinng I’m guessing a big chunk of that is the new book templates, but looking inside the package reveals other (unnecessary?) stuff.
