    Default Apple's Next Generation iPad Rumored to Arrive in February


    The folks over at Digitimes are claiming that Apple’s manufacturing partners have already begun delivering parts and components for the third-generation iPad to OEM contractors while preparing to draw down production of the iPad 2.

    The report continued to note that OEM production of the iPad 2 is expected to remain steady with a number between 14 to 15 million units being shipped out in the December quarter (for the holiday season). In January 2012, the numbers will decline to 4 to 5 million units as production of the so called iPad 3 will begin to reach 9.5 to 9.8 million units next quarter. China’s Commercial Times has reported Citigroup analyst Kevin Chang mentioning that Foxconn will begin producing the device in January ahead of large-scale production in February.

    It is also being claimed that the iPad 3 will arrive in February – a month earlier than the previous timelines. Analyst Richard Gardner has sources that mentioned that there were no “significant technical hurdles remaining” for the device so there is no need to keep it waiting. Typically Apple has released the iPad in the spring with the original iPad launching in January 2010 and launching in April. The second generation iPad was announced in March of this year and shipped just later that month.

    It is expected that the next-generation iPad will include a display with retina display like quality. It was previously reported that Apple has invested in a Sharp factory for production of LCD panels for the next iPad. Rumors of the panels purported increase remains unknown as of right now but it seems that it will be compatible with Apple’s Smart Cover.

    Are you excited for the iPad 3? A February release date will probably anger many shoppers who have purchased an iPad 2 for a loved one for the holiday season, but as you may already know, if you wait to purchase the latest and greatest Apple product, you’ll always be waiting.

    Minor error, the original iPad was announced in January and released in April, not launched in both.

    I agree, no jailbreak = no iPad 3 for me. Since we are not seeing jailbreaks for the iPad 2, I don't think we'll see anything in the near future for the third version.

    Lol +1

    My iPad is still on unlimited plan and jailbroken ... But I will still be getting the iPad 3, regardless of need. The original iPad was such a great product - there have been very few improvements made on it in the tablet market.

    Same. I bought a 32GB Wifi only iPad 2 earlier this year in April but want to upgrade to a 3G 16GB version. I stream more video content than I store so the 32GB is wasted on me. Plus if a jailbreak comes out I can use iFile and my 32GB usb stick and CCK to have more access to content on the go. Or I will invest in one of a wifi enabled hdd to to satisfy those few times I need the extra storage. With Cloud access on the go I can get what I need from mostly anywhere.

    For the holidays? If so I would return it. February isn't that far from here.
