The iPad 3 Is Coming in March, Bloomberg Says

There's not much to say about it, but I'm moving "The iPad 3 debuts in March" from the Rumor category to the Really Solid Rumor category. A Bloomberg team writes:


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.

One other thing to note from the big scoop. A source tells the publication that the iPad 3 will be compatible with the fastest available cell networks, known as LTE. That's a big deal and would make the new tablet the first Apple product to use the newer networks.

"Apple is bringing LTE to the iPad before the iPhone because the tablet has a bigger battery and can better support the power requirements of the newer technology, said one of the people," Bloomberg reported.

The iPad 3 screen will also be better than the current (i.e. my) version of the tablet.
