Earlier this year, rumors about the iPad 3 will launch not be that far behind of the iPad 2.
Digitimes has reported that the upcoming iPad 3 may even choose AMOLED panel or panel that support Full HD standard. And it’s unlikely to appear in 2011.
Sources from touch panel makers pointed out that Apple recently released its latest tablet PC plan and is asking the panel makers to provide products that are capable to support higher image quality than the current iPad 2 and Apple may even choose AMOLED panel or panel that support Full HD standard to accomplish the plan. However, since the project is still at the initial planning stage, the actual products are unlikely to appear in 2011.
The sources pointed out that they have not yet received any notice for next generation iPad products and do not believe iPad 2 is a transitional product. With iPad 2′s strong shipment order forecast from Apple, the sources believe iPad 3 will not appear in the short term.
