According to the recent rumors regarding the launch of three of new iPad 3 tablet in the evening past those from DigiTimes announced that iPad 3 will be available on the market in next 3-4 months.
Meanwhile, Foxconn Electronics will begin to produce the next-generation iPads in January and to ramp up the production volume starting February, according to a Chinese-language Commercial Times report, which quoted Kevin Chang, an analyst of Citigroup Global Markets, as indicating.
They argue that Apple partners have already begun to deliver new components to manufacturers of the tablet and by March we should have the tablet available in stores. Since Apple prepares the iPad 3 launch, the company reduces stocks of components for the iPad 2 and in the first quarter of the year will reduce the number of products manufactured to clear their stocks before the new product launch.
The scenario presented by DigiTimes is consistent with the Apple made last year and a launch in March is very possible. From iPad 3 a lot of people expect Retina Display, more subtle forms and can more easily, a quad-core and an change iOS. I recommend you to not expect too much from the new tablet to not get a new disappointment on the part of Apple.
