If the name of iPhone 4S has not convinced you that would be connected with a tribute of Apple to Steve Jobs maybe the launch of iPad 3 on February 24, when Steve Jobs would have celebrated his birthday, would give you to understand that Apple did not forget his famous founder.
Of course it’s just a rumor now that probably was born in the mind of a journalist from Taiwan but that does not mean that this rumour can not be true. Last year iPad 2 was announced on 2 March, a week after the Steve Jobs birthday so, would not be so unusual that this year things happen a little faster, all in the memory of the legendary CEO.
Because it is a new gadget, it is taking time for makers in the supply chain to raise their yield rates. The sources said all OEM and ODM makers have exercised great caution in ensuring the smooth operations of their production lines.
Even if iPad 3 will not be announced then, we see presented to a conference in early Apple in March. iPad 3 could have Retina Display, could be thinner and may come equipped with a quad-core but yet all this information are simple rumors so take them with a large dose of pessimism.
