iPad 3 Could Be Coming in 3-4 Months [Rumour]

by on December 12th, 2011

Digitimes notes next-generation iPads could debut in the next 3-4 months, based on information that supply chain makers have started to deliver new parts to factories for iPad production:

The next generation iPads are expected to be available in the next 3-4 months as makers in the supply chain have started delivering parts and components for the new tablets to OEM contractors while reducing those prepared for iPad 2, according to sources in the supply chain.

Sources note iPad 2 production will stay at 14-15 million units for the fourth quarter of 2011, but stock will decrease in 2012 to make way for new iPads. Foxconn will once again undertake the production of new iPads:

Meanwhile, Foxconn Electronics will begin to produce the next-generation iPads in January and to ramp up the production volume starting February, according to a Chinese-language Commercial Times report, which quoted Kevin Chang, an analyst of Citigroup Global Markets, as indicating.

New iPads are estimated at 9.5-9.8 million units in Q1 2012, note sources. The iPad 3 has long been rumoured to come equipped with a Retina Display, with LCD panels to come from Sharp instead of Samsung.

  • This is an very interesting article. Keep up the good work. I read it thoroughly and enjoyed it. Here is similar article : The Mac App Store launched at the beginning of 2011 and has already surpassed 100 million downloads. The Mac App Store isn’t the only place for users to get Mac apps — and not all apps (or publishers) are in the Mac App Store — but the uptake amongst developers and users has been swift.
    As 2011 comes to a close, we wanted to look at 10 of our favorite Mac App Store apps from its first year of existence.

  • In short, there’s an iPhone for every budget, a strategy that belies
    the perception that Apple’s handset is strictly a high-end item.

    Keeping the iPad 2 around at a reduced price could help Apple retain–or at least slow the slide of–its dominant market share. Recent estimates give the iPad about two-thirds of the tablet market.
