Rumors swirling at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) at that Apple is planning to ship iPad 3 in March, and an iPad 4 by this fall. The iPad 3 will reportedly come with a “full high resolution display.”
From a post on the news-blog DigiTimes: “The iPad 3 will come with QXGA (1,536×2,048 pixels) display and longer battery life although its other hardware specifications may not be so amazing as expected, said the sources. But Apple will take the advantage of the iPad 3 launch to slash the price of its iPad 2 to US $399, sources claimed.”
ComputerWorld also reported the rumors from CES, although they are saying the newest version will be known as iPad2S. With this new improved version, it is speculated that the iPad 2 with a price break is going to give the Kindle Fire some competition.
To date, Apple has posted nothing on their website regarding this launch.
