The rumour mill is going haywire, just as it did before the release of the prized Apple iPad 2. And with many Apple enthusiasts now looking towards the next iPad 3, many speculations have already been spun out that it will sport a new HD 2048 by 1536 pixel screen, with 264PPI. With only months left for the release date, although an official one has not been given, its still a nice treat for Apple enthusiasts to know that Apple are looking at upgrading hardware on the iPad 3, as opposed to software in relation to the iPhone 4S release.
As expected, the general consensus lean towards a March or April release date, and with Samsung confirming they are making a new supposed A6 processor, all hints point towards Apple gearing up for a release, and getting their production supplies ready. But here is another blow, his new free iPad upgrade is supposedly linked to Samsung, again, or interestingly LG as manufacturers. Both have history in the HD and plasma screen arena, and both hold their own.
And as expected, the status and quality provided by both, is good enough for Apple, even if they have a few lawsuits against you, ahem, Samsung. As Apple look to provide an upgrade to the dominating, and market leading tablet device.
And sources are coming left, right and also centre, revealing that the new 9.7 inch touchscreen display, featuring a whopping 264 pixels per inch, is scheduled to go into production from as early as November. This fits in perfectly with other reports with companies such as Samsung producing the A6 processor. It seems that the latter months of this year will hold valuable and tight production deadlines for Apples suppliers, so that demand for the treasured iPad 3 can be met once it is released early next year.
The problem here of course, is making crazy amounts of these screens, ie millions, again complimenting the massive iPad following that Apple has, and their dominance. Tight plans will possibly see suppliers working to deadlines to cope with the amount of iPad 3 models required on and after the release date. If anything like the iPhone 4S, and we are sure it will be, millions of iPad 3 models will be preordered, and millions will be sold in the first few weeks.
And with a better screen quality and also a retina display to be put on the iPad 3, as seen on the iPhone 4 models, many are suggesting this is the most likely upgrade on the iPad to date, with other possible upgrades such as increased storage, better camera quality, and also a slimmer iPad.
