I was not trying to be discriminatory, but pink was just not my first thought for an interior color for any of our products whether it be iPad cases or iPhone cases. Well that was not how many of our customers see Pink, not to mention many members of our staff. With exception of one person: Mrs. PQ. She is not a pink player. If you really want to get on her tomboy nerves, you give her a pink running top or iPhone case. I assure you, it's just not her thing.
Regardless of Mrs. PQ's preferences, we all here at PQ came to the conclusion that introducing Pink right before Valentine’s Day seemed perfect. You know who you pink people are and your significant others absolutely know who you are. The new Little Black Book with Pink interior looks awesome and will make that statement that you’re pink and proud!
We are very excited to introduce our 2 newest colors for the Little Black Book for iPhone 4 and 4S. Pink and Eggplant now join our other 5 colors to provide you many options for yourself or as a great gift for this February in the season of love. Yep, I just said 'Season of Love'. Oh well, apparently all these Pink cases in the warehouse are starting to affect me.
As you can imagine, here at PQ we are closely watching the iPad 3 rumor mills. Beautiful hand made iPad cases being our specialty seems to make this quite the imperative. Like you, we are very interested in what Apple plans to update with their newest version of the iPad. From what we are reading, the iPad 3 will sport a new high resolution screen, better camera and the newest cellular technology LTE. LTE is the next generation high speed cellular data standard.
According to reports from Bloomberg and Macotakara (Japanese Blog) the iPad 3 will support a higher resolution screen that will make text appear like printed material, very similar to the current ‘Retina’ display in the iPhone 4 and 4S. Bloomberg also cites 3 anonymous sources saying that the iPad 3 launch date will be early March with an announcement in early February by Apple.
Forbes has also stated that their sources agree with Bloomberg that LTE technology will be included in the iPad 3. This will make for much faster cellular data download speeds for those who buy the iPad that includes data service.
In the want, but not fully vetted rumors there are whispers about a higher resolution camera and larger memory of 128 GB also included with the new iPad.
As always with rumors, only time will tell but it should provide an interesting 1st quarter around here at the PQ world. Know that we’re very excited to be offering many new products this year that will be made specifically for the iPad 3. Those are NOT rumors, we have first hand information on that!
Mr. P&Q and I are busy readying ourselves for the upcoming Macworld convention in San Francisco. For Mr. P&Q this has meant digging his running clothes out of storage, purchasing a pair of trail shoes and recalling how to set his alarm clock for O dark:30 workouts. The Steep Ravine Trail Run was too much a temptation for Mrs. P&Q to pass by as a great way to tour the Golden Gate National Rec Area. So, with 7 miles of single track looming for the slightly sedentary Mr. P&Q, he has commenced with hitting the trails, both figuratively and literally. Our early morning run started in the woods and concluded in the emergency room with a dislocated shoulder, stupid black ice. The good news is that there is no ice on the famed Dipsea Trail, the bad news is that the big guy won’t be running much for the next several days. For my part I’ve been preparing my palate with some great California wines and cramming like a co-ed for our pending Mac techie meet and greets. I can no more discuss the rumored specs for the upcoming iPad 3 release as Mr. P&Q can list the five most recent Xterra Trail champions. I did send a shock wave through the world of Apple and all things celluloid by clicking on live coverage of the Consumer Electronics Show, only to hear one of the commentators note the iPhone is now obsolete, thanks to the advent of the Samsung Focus and the HTC Titan. I’m reasonably certain this is why we are attending iWorld this year.
