iPad 3 Rumors: Hi-Def Screen, Faster Processor, LTE Support

By: Chris Crum - January 14, 2012

The iPad rumors are running rampant, as the (rumored) March launch gets closer.

This week, we heard that the iPad 3 might have graphics that are as much as 20 times more powerful than its predecessor, and that its LCD displays will be provided by Samsung and LG.

Now, Bloomberg is reporting, citing “people familiar with the product” that the next iPad will have a high-definition screen, run a faster processor and work with next-generation (LTE) wireless networks. Bloomberg reports:

The company’s manufacturing partners in Asia started ramping up production of the iPad 3 this month and plan to reach full volumes by February, said one of the people, who asked not to be named because the details aren’t public. The tablet will use a quad-core chip, an enhancement that lets users jump more quickly between applications, two of the people said.

Apple of course will not be commenting on rumors.

    Is there any talk about the design of ipad 3? Ipad 2 was even thinner than the original ipad. So what’s going to be the design in ipad 3?

    Just curious to know….

    Thanks

    Until now, there’s no talk about such design changes as far as ipad 3 is concerned. I guess it would be more performance oriented rather than design related.

    Thanks
