iPad 3 Rumored To Ship By March, iPad 4 By Fall

CES is this week and hardware makers including Toshiba will be there showing off their latest tablet designs. Meanwhile, the tablet inventor Apple, is already hard at work.

The company is reportedly going to ship a new version of the iPad, which reports are calling the iPad 3, in March. The tablet will supposedly have a full high resolution display.

DigiTimes has the story: “The iPad 3 will come with a QXGA (1,536×2,048 pixels) display and longer battery life although its other hardware specifications may not be so amazing as expected, said the sources. But Apple will take the advantage of the iPad 3 launch to slash the price of its iPad 2 to US$399, the sources claimed.” DigiTimes is also reporting an iPad 4 by October, so it could be a very busy year for the Cupertino company.

In the meantime, we await more news about the Apple’s rumored new digital textbook business.
