    Wall Street Journal Confirms Early 2012 iPad 3 with Retina Display

    In case you still had doubts, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple is indeed working on its next generation iPad for early 2012. The newspaper also seems to confirm the 2048x1536 Retina display that has been long rumored.

    "The next generation iPad is expected to feature a high resolution display - 2048 by 1536 compared with 1024 by 768 in the iPad 2 - and Apple's suppliers have already shipped small quantities of components for the sampling of the iPad 3. Suppliers said Apple has placed orders for a 9.7-inch screen device. According to "people familiar with the situation", Apple is aiming to launch the iPad 3 in early 2012."


    The Wall Street Journal's sources also indicate that a trial run will begin in October and that Apple has already started placing orders for many of the key components for the next iPad.

    While the report doesn't seem to add much new information, it does add a more credible voice to the rumors coming out of China about Apple's iPad 3.

    Do we even need a new one??? Even the first iPad is still more than enough for some.

    We really do clutter and complicate our own lives.

    Welcome to the world of consumer electronics. Apple waits for no one and the moment you buy you gadget is the time it becomes outdated.

    The only time we start to clutter out lives if we give in to the temptation of having always the greatest and latest.

    with intel's dominance, i'm just glad that CPU speed bumps are no longer as often as before over the past few years. our macs are holding its specs/value pretty well.

    in a mobile world, they're now pushing features like design, displays, ecosystem, etc. over performance specs.

    I skipped the iPad 2 since I got the iPad1 for a pretty high price. Definitely looking forward to the third gen!

    Apple can afford not to release the iPad 3 this year. There hasn't been any clear competiton for them this year. The so called iPad killers have flopped. What with the bad reviews of the Playbook, the Xoom and the death of the HP touchpad.

    Retina display, probably will be faster. Wonder if they can find a way to make the battery life even longer and the form to be even lighter. :D

    2048 by 1536 on a 9.7" screen will be stunning. I hope price points don't go up too much though.
