After months of rumors, Apple has, finally confirmed that PrimeSence, an Israeli company which builds 3D sensors that did formed the basis of Microsoft’s Kinnect in past. The deal was closed at around 350 million dollars.

Many market experts have are inquiring about, why Apple has purchased “Prime Sense”, what Apple will do with Prime Sense  world’s most renowned technology. Apple’s notorious secrecy surrounds, everything it does, especially if we look in the past, we will consider this purchase as no exception. In the past, Apple has acquired companies like AuthenTech, C3 Technologies. These companies have directly influenced Apple’s road-map for the future for implementing new technologies and coming up with technologies in the market.  Apple  did acquired  , AuthenTech in 2012, It  is a biometric security solution providing company  for introducing  touch sensor ID technology in its products  like seen in Apple iPhone 5s . Apple did acquired C3 Technologies in 2011, which did proved to be building block of iOS 6 for introducing “Apple Maps” services in the market. Likewise, In past, Apple did acquired, Siri in 2010 and then released in iPhone 4S, in October 2011.

Replying to a question in Media, Apple representative Said, “Acquiring new technology companies from time to time is generally part of Apple Future Plans.” This is the same statement that Apple representative has issued in Past.

The most obvious explanation is Apple will use PrimeSence technology to implement in its innovative product Apple TV. In past Steve Jobs hinted at Apple’s plans for a Smart TV in his official biography He said that” the Apple will use simplest user interface you could imagine. This will be easier in hands and arms”. Moreover, Apple’s Siri is also rumored to be integrating d with the Apple TV. Siri on Apple TV will give users experience an incredible experience.

Based on the time  to time  from Apple and  the subsequent product releases , one can assume that  Apple will integrate this technology as rumored  to Apple TV which is expected to be launched soon. Recent studies indicate that Apple TV may not be ready until 2015.

It is likely that Apple will open a new API store for app developers Apple TV Applications developers. This will obviously open new platforms for Application developers. Such applications can be used with Prime Sense technology which will pave new way to new generation of video games.

Apple recent acquisition of Prime Sense will no-doubt prove to be quite beneficial for Apple in the Future, not for giving tough time competitors in the market, but also for introducing new innovative and advanced products in the market.

Apple iPad 2 mini without Retina display for thinner and faster?

Expectations with Apple
Actually, we go for weeks or basically since the launch of the first Apple iPad mini assume that the next generation is equipped with a Retina display. Apple has not been confirmed, you wish for the easy, partly because the competition is already using much higher resolution screens. So far, the 7.9-inch display has a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. A retina display would be 1,536 x 2,048 pixels at the same size and of course deliver a noticeably sharper picture. This would then also be adapted to other hardware and a faster processor and probably more battery be installed.
DisplaySearch Claim
DisplaySearch now claims that the new iPad mini 2 probably comes without Retina display. This should be set to take place at a faster A6 Apple A5 processor and a slightly redesigned, thinner design used. The 7.9-inch display is intended to retain the resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. This is the 3rd mini iPad 7 quarter come directly with iOS on the market. The iPad Mini with Retina Display supposed to have been postponed to 2014. In recent weeks and months there have been rumors of problems and delays at the start of production of the Retina display, which is actually scheduled in beginning of 3rd quarter. Last time was even reported that Samsung had to be brought back into the boat, so this 7.9-inch Retina display can be produced in sufficient quantities.
Such a procedure would be unthinkable not, for a 9.7-inch display with 1024 x 768 pixel image was also used in the first two major iPads and then only with the iPad 3 Retina display, the iPhone 4 relatively quickly followed with a significantly faster processor. Currently, there is a distribution of sales of iPads at Apple iPad minis from 60% and 40% of all other major iPads. This also still contained in the offer iPad 2 counts
Conclusion
We are naturally curious to see if Apple introduces the iPad mini 2 with or without retina display and how thin and small, the tablet can still be when the processor is enhanced and high performance. May you build there then a better camera on the back of one without the price rises.
