  • Apple Building Two Million iPad3 Units Before End of Next Month But...


    Don't hold your breath for the new iPad 3 just yet.

    Although consumers likely won't see the refreshed iPad until spring 2012 at the earliest, Apple is ambitiously ramping up production in hopes of warding off any component supply shortages. Apple is dependent on no shortage of key parts to make the iPad 3 thinner than its predecessors. What's more, the device is said to boast a higher-resolution screen - another factor that is placing component supply pressure on Apple and its far east manufacturing partners.

    In the big picture, however, it does indeed look like the iPad 3 is good to go. According to a new report from DigiTimes, not only has all the design work been completed by Apple on the third-generation tablet, but production is already moving forward.

    "Apple is currently giving two tablet PC projects codenamed J1 and J2 to its upstream partners for development," the report reads. "The sources revealed that the major differences of the new tablet PCs compared to the previous model are their size, specifications and technologies."

    The sources pointed out that the J2 project seems to be an upgrade version of the J1 and although Apple has not yet decided which project will be used for the final launch, Apple is likely to make the final decision based on its needs. As for the upstream side, the component suppliers have already conducted pilot production and prepared for mass production.
    All told, Digitimes says Apple's "accumulated inventory" of the next-gen iPad will top two million units before the end of this year (which is only eight weeks from now). If the report is accurate, the actual components for the iPad 3 have been supplied to Apple's manufacturing partners for close to a month already.

      Great. I've had a $700 paperweight for the last few months without any Jailbreak and by the looks of it there might be a new iPad out before I finally get to use it. I just hope it at least will have 4G since I just moved to an area without FIOS and it's Verizon wireless coverage is literally the only way to get an internet connection faster than 5mbit down/1mbit up =(
