The iPad 3 rumor mill is picking up speed as a whole host of techie know it alls chime in with their evidence, opinions or general ramblings. Despite the usual lack of solid information a few threads of information are starting to pull together to deliver some likely features of Apple’s next generation tab.
The current iPad 2 was supposed to come with a higher resolution display, alas it didn’t, so the logical train of thought is that the iPad 3 will. The news agency Bloomberg has revealed that the screen will have four times more pixels than the current model, making it sharper than many high definition televisions. This supports various rumors that the iPad 3 would come complete with a retina display.
Another sure fire upgrade will come in the form of a new processor. Many feel it will sport quad core capabilities and be branded the A6, which again is fairly logical when you think about it. This will make the most of the we display, make multitasking quicker, videos more fluid and open the iPad up for even better gaming.
Other rumors suggest that the iPad 3 will use the same camera as the iPhone 4S, support Siri, could be LTE enabled and may be slightly thicker (although others, including us, feel it will be a smidgeon thinner).
So when will the iPad 3 be released? Again no official release date has been given but insiders have reported that the tablet has already gone into production. This will be ramped up throughout February in preparation for a March 2012 release date which fits in with the firms regular annual schedules.
