The ‘Real’ iPad 3 Not Coming Until Late 2012

The ‘real’ iPad 3 will be launched late in 2012 at the earliest.

Apple’s  announcement of iPhone 4S in October of this year, made many disappoint. Most them felt that the phone was just a follow-on to its previous baby brother iPhone 4, carries its resemblance much and not wholly a new device. Apple has done this before, with the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3GS, and it has become the trend of releasing an updated version of previous device is spreading to other Apple products.

A report in Digitimes says that, while Apple’s newest iPad will hit the market in March of next year, it will not be the ‘real’ iPad 3. But, the iPad that was seen in 2012 will be an updated iPad 2. The website also cites supply chain sources that say the ‘real’ iPad 3 will not be unveiled until the third quarter of 2012, at the earliest. It will not be surprising at all, if this turns out to be true, after all, it wouldn’t be the first time Apple has put off a full upgrade in favor of minor upgrades to last year’s model. Add to that the fact that the iPad 2 was already a pretty major upgrade from the iPad 1, including a whole new design, and it seems pretty likely. According to the Digitimes report, the iPad 2 upgrade will have a longer battery life and a slightly slimmer design.
