The iPad 3 Claim Chowder Is Already Cooking

Roger Cheng, CNet:

Apple should be blowing us away with the iPad 3, but it probably won’t.

The latest rumors call for a higher resolution screen on par with the iPhone’s Retina Display, a possible upgrade to the iOS software, and possibly a few other improvements. That’s certainly enough to draw the Apple faithful and sell a ton of iPads. But with the rapid advances that the competition is making, will it be enough to secure the company’s continued dominance in the tablet business?

Not even sure where to start here. The implication that iPads are only bought by “the Apple faithful”? Or the “rapid advances” he cites in the competition, which include “more CPU cores” and the Galaxy Note 10.1’s stylus?
