Possibility of Revised Third-Generation iPad Being Released Alongside iPad Mini
A recent report from research firm DisplaySearch claims that a new iPad is indeed scheduled to arrive alongside the iPad mini, which will be lighter and cooler. According to DisplaySearch, Apple has been keeping the supply chain busy in the latter half of 2012 when it comes to LCD displays, with the intent of launching the next-gen iPhone and new iPad mini. The research firm even made a note about the third-generation iPad, which can be seen below:
The new iPad leads the tablet PC market with its high resolution (9.7” QXGA with 200+ ppi) and high color saturation. However, Apple is working with the LCD supply chain to refresh the display, including revising the LED backlight design for cost reduction, refining the thermal solution, reducing the weight by replacing some components, and fine tuning the panel transmittance for lower power consumption.
At the same time, redesigning a product halfway through its generation has costs of its own. Would such a move be worth it for Apple? The Cupertino California company might consider just waiting until next year’s refresh of the next-generation iPad instead of rushing into it prematurely. Either way, we’ll find out soon enough as the iPad mini is rumored to be announced at a separate event early next month.

If it brings any advanced hardware features such as a faster processor I'm going to be quite annoyed seeing as though they have timed it perfectly after millions of University students including myself have invested in iPad 3s earlier this month in preparation to aid with studie; they are supposed to be supporting students, not annoying them by releasing a newer product just weeks after they have bought the current version.

Not going to happen. Did it happen last year? Or the year before?
These are the same rumours and "reports" that crop up around this time every autumn since the original iPad.

Oh...that's untimely....Perhaps next year Apple would make those refinements for the iPad 3 and Introduce this year the iPad Mini....Let us all keep our fingers crossed....

why do they always talk about a revision 6mo in? Apple has not and doubtfully would do it. They will simply wait for spring, to keep the 1 year cycle. Apple has not deviated from this and I cant see the reason why they would.

Hmmm..this one sounds a bit far fetched. First off there is no other tablet that even compares at this time. Apple has the market sewn up for the moment. Not sure why they feel they need to come out with something so soon. Im fine waiting for a great final product versus one that is missing key features I feel should be native :]
