iPad 3 Retina Display Likely

Posted In Apple news - By Joon On Sunday, August 21st, 2011 With 0 Comments

Recently, the iPhone 5 rumors have been running rampant while the rumors of a fall iPad have subsided. Despite this, a very intriguing iPad rumor has come out that the next iPad will more than likely sport a retina display.

People were really hoping to see the iPad 2 to sport a retina display at the announcement, however that did not come to fruition.

In addition, a lot of people thought that a fall iPad would arrive this year with a retina display. These rumors have subsided dramatically in recent weeks and most expect the next iPad will be arriving in early 2012.

“Apple Inc. is working with component suppliers and its assembler in Asia for the trial production of its next generation iPad from October, people familiar with the situation say, as it looks to stay ahead of the competition in the fast-growing tablet computer market. The next generation iPad is expected to feature a high resolution display – 2048 by 1536 compared with 1024 by 768 in the iPad 2 – and Apple’s suppliers have already shipped small quantities of components for the sampling of the iPad 3. Suppliers said Apple has placed orders for a 9.7-inch screen device.”

From iDB:

The 2048×1536 display would make the 9.7″ screen one of the highest resolution machines we’ve seen, and will certainly add a whole new dimension to digital books and other text-heavy applications. Gamers, too, will no doubt welcome the news of an increased number of pixels.

While a delay, if it can be called that, is never a good thing, we’ll happily accept a longer wait in favor of that many pixels!

At this point I think a retina display iPad is a must. What do you think about a retina display iPad?
