iPad 3 out in March/April say part maker moles

Evidence pointing to production ramp-up?

Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

The next iPad will be out in three to four months' time after going into production in January. Component makers are already shipping parts.

So say a variety of moles in Asia, by way of DigiTimes.

Their timeline puts the iPad 3's release in March or April 2012 - a year on from the shipment of the iPad 2, and two years on from the debut if the original iPad.

It's Apple's fondness for one-year-on updates that gives these largely unsubstantiated rumours some little credence.

But a variety of different outlets - market watchers mostly - have separately claimed that Apple is starting to scale back iPad 2 production and to have commenced work on manufacturing the iPad 3.

The new tablet's key feature is expected to be a 2048 x 1536 display, possibly from Sharp. ®
