Report: Apple iPad 3 Will Launch in March With Smaller Dock

There is a hap for Apple to roll out the iPad 3 in March 2012. Its is not a surprise while thinking of the company’s previous two tablets, launched recently. Yet the third-generation iPad reportedly possess the smaller dock connector feature that could cause some compatibility with other existing Apple gadgets.

Macotakara claimed according to a “reliable Asian source” that Apple is rushing in the mission of producing iPad 3. The company wants the wholesome device to be ready by the end of January, but the production of iPad 3 will be interrupted by the Chinese New Year holidays,which is from January 22 to 28, slightly earlier than usual.

Macotakara says that the iPad 3 will be having the same number of pins as like the current generation iPad except that this third generation iPad will be smaller in size. This may create problems in connection as the current, larger connector  of other Apple products may not match this iPad. But the size of screen is same as that of iPad 2, but it could not say whether or not the device would get upgraded to a retina display.

There are apparent evidence that Apple is ready to kick off production on the iPad 3. All Things D reported last week that evidence in supply chains like increased iPad orders, imply that the rumored device is headed into production. It is guessed that the device may appear sometime in March. The iPad 2 was launched on 11, March 2011.

Much more rumors hang around about iPad 3. It is said that iPad 3 will be lighter and thinner. But the price of the iPad cannot be guessed, especially now Amazon has announced Kindle Fire tablet at  $199, it is widely specualted that the 7-inch table will be the first device to outrun the iPad for its money.

That said, according to Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White, Apple will debut a cheaper iPad in addition to the iPad 3 in order to keep a competitive edge.

Apple, of course, refused to pass comment on the rumors.
