WSJ: Apple Working on iPad 3 with Retina Display
Posted on August 19, 2011 by eli courey
The Wall Street Journal believes Apple is planning on releasing an iPad 3 a with a high-resolution 2048×1536 display in early 2012. There isn’t really any new information in their article, just the same rumors and speculation we’ve been hearing all year.
Apple Inc. is working with component suppliers and its assembler in Asia for the trial production of its next generation iPad from October, people familiar with the situation say, as it looks to stay ahead of the competition in the fast-growing tablet computer market. The next generation iPad is expected to feature a high resolution display – 2048 by 1536 compared with 1024 by 768 in the iPad 2 – and Apple’s suppliers have already shipped small quantities of components for the sampling of the iPad 3. Suppliers said Apple has placed orders for a 9.7-inch screen device.
