Apple is rumored to be pushing back the release of the Ipad 3 until 2012 due to failure in their retina display. This new display almost doubles the resolution from the Ipad 2. A couple things Apple could be struggling with is the additional back lighting needed for the higher resolution screens along with the need to keep everything thin. Apple allegedly canceled its Ipad 3 supply schedule which would be a sure sign we won’t see the Ipad 3 anytime soon.
Apple doesn’t need to produce the Ipad 3 in 2011 and they never actually announced that they would. They were struggling to keep up with production of the Ipad 2 until last month. Releasing the Ipad 3 before Christmas could significantly reduce Holiday sales on the Ipad 2 .
While we are sitting on the edge of our seats patiently waiting for the newest Apple offerings, users would agree that it is in our best interest for them to release a quality bug free product that we have grown to love.
