More next generation iPad rumours are coming your way, this time from Macotakara. According to their sources from China, pre-production is already under way by Foxconn and Pegatron (Google Translation):
According to sources in China, Foxconn Technology and Pegatron Technology are the next as the iPad begin production at a rate of 85% and 15% same as the number of manufacturing planning iPhone 4S. This is the Chinese New Year in 2012, earlier than usual, January 23 (7 of 28 holiday and 1 January 22), so one of the reasons you can do to accelerate the production of the iPad possible. The initial production run using a Sharp LCD panel, so planning is aiming to ship in early March.
Previous rumours have hinted at the possibility of LCD panels from Sharp. Other details reiterate what iLounge previously claimed that physical changes will be minimal, although the new model will be slightly ‘thicker’ in terms of millimetres. Macotakara notes the position of magnets haven’t changed so the Smart Cover would still fit, and the position of the dock connector hasn’t changed. Again, we are hearing of a minor upgrade to the iPad, similar to the upgrade path from the iPhone 4 to iPhone 4S.
