According to a DigiTimes report, Apple’s upstream suppliers are preparing materials for the production of the next iPad.
In an odd move, the DigiTimes report indicates that the rumored iPad 3 is expected in September/October 2011. The current iPad 2 was just launched this March 2011 in Canada.
In other words, a fall 2011 launch for the iPad 3 would give the device a significantly shorter product life cycle than normal.
