    Default Report: iPad 3 in Production, Ready By March


    The general consensus among supply chain sources, Apple manufacturing partners, and Wall Street watchers is that Apple is almost certain to introduce the iPad 3 within the next 8 to 10 weeks.

    On Wednesday, a report from Japan indicated that Apple manufacturers Foxconn and Pegatron are presently assembling the third generation tablet in a feverish manner to complete orders before a projected early March shipping date.

    Claiming to have conferred with a knowledgeable Chinese source, Japanese Mac news website Macotakara says Foxconn has assumed 85% of the production responsibility for the iPad 3, while Pegatron is taking only 15%.

    "This first lot production implements LCD's, which are produced by Sharp Electronics Corporation, and aims to be shipped at early March," a translation of the article reads.

    Accordingly, now would be a good time to expect the flood gates to open with regard to supposed iPad 3 accessories. Macotakara asserts that accessory makers are now in possession of highly detailed iPad 3 specs (although, based on what we're hearing, those specs should be almost indistinguishable from the iPad 2's specs).

    It has to or it will not sell.
    Trust me, it will be revamped. Also apple is known for reinventing things to make our lives easier so hopefully it's something unexpected.

    I really hope they keep the iPad3 dimensionally exact to the iPad2...the iPad2s design, size and weight is perfect. Beef up the specs, retina, and Siri...sold!

    Samsung will announce their tablet afterwards, it will have a totally new design, have much better specs and still be thinner and lighter than the iPad 3--but, before the thing is even in production, apple will sue to keep it off store shelves.

    taking bets.

    I wouldn't bet on it, so many rumours and hearsay from Apple as usual. Hypeing it up. If it happens though It would be pretty cool Im sure
