We’ve been hearing a lot of rumors about the iPad 3 recently. Just a couple of days ago, a rumor suggested an iPad 3 launch in February and that it will indeed support double the resolution of the current screen. We also heard that the next gen iPad will be thicker and will support smart cover as well.
Digitimes brought us yet another iPad 3 rumor today claiming that the device will see day light in the next 3 or 4 months. DigiTimes claims that Apple’s suppliers are slowing the iPad 2 production and directing their undivided attention to the new device.
OEM production of iPad 2 will remain high at 14-15 million units in the fourth quarter of 2011 but decline to 4-5 million units in the first quarter of 2012, paving the way for the launch of the new iPads, the sources noted.
The 4 or 5 months release date is quite possible if we follow Apple’s calendar.
As you know, the new device is expected to support Dual LED light bars spiking the screen’s resolution by this to double that of the iPad 2. This enhancement will push the company to increase the price to cover that of the new Retina Display. We are also expecting an increase in horsepower and a new industrial design.If you found this post useful, hopefully hit the +1 (recommend) button ⇉
