iPad 3 Release Only a Few Months Away?
A snippet of information regarding the iPad 3 has come from Apple’s Chinese parts suppliers. The news according to sources is that a Spring 2012 launch in either March or April is on the cards.
According to Digitimes, Component manufacturers in the supply chain for the next generation of iPads have begun delivery of iPad 3 parts to Apple’s contractors while cutting back on those for it’s predecessor the iPad 2, with OEM iPad 2 production dropping accordingly from approx 15 million units in Q4, down to 4-5 million in Q1 2012.
Apple’s main contractor, Foxconn electronics will then rapidly increase the number of iPad 3s produced in the first quarter of 2012 with production expected to be in the region of 10 million units. Enough for one each then.
