The iPad 3, as with any Apple product just about, has had rumors galore. This time, more details come out of the wood work. This time, Bloomberg has the details on what we can expect from the latest generation tablet from Apple.
“Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s next iPad, expected to go on sale in March, will sport a high-definition screen, run a faster processor and work with next-generation wireless networks, according to three people familiar with the product.”
“The company’s manufacturing partners in Asia started ramping up production of the iPad 3 this month and plan to reach full volumes by February, said one of the people, who asked not to be named because the details aren’t public. The tablet will use a quad-core chip, an enhancement that lets users jump more quickly between applications, two of the people said.”
Many users were expecting the same HD display that was on the iPhone 4 and more recently the iPhone 4S, to come out on the iPad 2, but that never happened. The only real differences between the first generation and the second was a slimmer design, better battery life, and dual core processor.
Being that quad core tablets are currently available on Android tablets, Apple needs to keep up with that so customers can expect even better performance than before.
The iPad 3 is said to also come with 4G LTE support (likely for both AT&T and Verizon for now) for blazingly fast speeds. According to one of the sources, production has really been ramping up with factories running 24 hours per day.
