iPad 3, coming this Autumn, as the iPad 2+
So, after even more rumours we have come to a conclusion that both the Apple iPad 2 and iPad 3 will be on sale at the same time, much like the current model for iPhones. In fact the second model will just be a spec boost, not major design changes. Apparently purely a higher screen resolution, maybe even the iPad that Apple wanted to launch back in April?
There are some indications from the supply chain that Apple may look to introduce an ‘iPad 2 Plus’ device as they put out request for quotes from various component suppliers for this marginally different device,” FBR Capital Markets analyst Craig Berger wrote in a note to clients.
Apple may launch the device in late 2011, the analyst said, citing supply-chain contacts.
Interesting. But if this is purely a screen upgrade, maybe even in size, then this does warrant enough for even the iFans to buy a new device, after all they are not the cheapest of things!
